The Week in Numbers: Big Tech bragging rights

STORY: From a three-way battle for stock supremacy, to a public rebuke for the Toyota boss, this is the Week in Numbers.

Over $3.3 trillion was the market value of Nvidia by Tuesday - making it the world’s most valuable firm.

But the AI chip champion soon dropped back to second place behind Microsoft amid a fierce battle for the crown.

Recent weeks have also seen Apple take top spot at times.

$215 million is the record fine sought by France’s finance ministry for Carrefour.

It says the supermarket giant did deals with franchised stores that were skewed in its favor - something the firm denies.

72% was the proportion of Toyota shareholders who voted to re-elect chairman Akio Toyoda - grandson of the firm’s founder.

That’s actually the lowest-ever figure, and will be seen as a rebuke for the boss amid a spate of scandals at the Japanese auto giant.

36% was the opening jump for shares in Sydney-based Mexican food chain Guzman Y Gomez.

It was Australia’s biggest IPO of the year.

But critics question whether the firm can deliver the rapid expansion it has promised.

And up to $10 billion is the estimated pile of liabilities at U.S. EV-maker Fisker, which filed for bankruptcy this week.

The firm has burned through cash, with its electric SUVs proving glitch-prone.

A global slowdown in EV demand, and a price war sparked by Tesla, probably didn’t help either.
