Bitcoin has gone mainstream with the launch of futures trading on Sunday. And investors seem to like it.
Bitcoin prices popped another 10% Monday, reaching a high of $16,773.04 before paring gains. The cryptocurrency's market cap is hovering around $275 billion, according to CoinDesk.
Here are five large cap stocks that are now less valuable than bitcoin.
General Electric: Market Cap $153.46 Billion
General Electric (GE) has been around for 125 years and was one of the founding securities on the blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial Average. However, the market cornerstone has fallen on some tough times and the stock is down nearly 45% year to date.
Procter & Gamble: Market Cap $228.59 Billion
Procter & Gamble (PG) is one of the world's largest consumer goods companies. The stock is up nearly 7% year to date, but its chart has seen peaks and valleys due to corporate governance turmoil initiated by activist investor Nelson Peltz. The stock reached a five year low of $68.42 in 2015 but is back above the $90 mark currently.
AT&T Inc: Market Cap $225.36 Billion
AT&T (T) is one of the country's biggest telecom companies and is currently in talks to purchase Time Warner (TWX) for $85.4 billion. The stock is down more than 4% year to date as the company battles the cord-cutting trend in its DirecTV business and increased competition from rivals like T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) .
Pfizer Inc: Market Cap $214.76 Billion
Pfizer (PFE) is one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies. The company's stock is up more than 20% year to date despite challenges to the Affordable Care Act.
Anheuser-Busch InBev: Market Cap $214.77 Billion
Anheuser Busch (BUD) is the world's largest brewer after purchasing rival SABMiller in 2016 for $103 billion. It still isn't as big as bitcoin's market cap. Year to date the stock is down nearly 4% due to sluggish beer sales in the United States.
