Market cap

What is market cap?

Market capitalization (market cap) is the total dollar value of all a company's outstanding shares of stock. It's a simple way to determine a company's size and market value, and it's commonly used by investors to compare companies within the same industry.

Market cap is calculated by multiplying the total number of a company’s outstanding shares by the current market price of one share. For example, if a company has 1 million shares outstanding and the share price is $10, the market cap would be $10 million. It's important to note that market cap does not reflect a company's cash or debt levels, and it can fluctuate as the stock price changes.
