What is Market Capitalization?

Market capitalization, or market cap, represents the total value of all shares of a company currently held by its shareholders. It is calculated by multiplying the total number of issued shares of a company by the current market price per share. 

Market cap is used to categorize companies based on the size of their equity in the market, helping investors assess their risk profile preferences, such as large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap companies.

How Does Market Capitalization Work?

Market capitalization, or market cap, indicates the total value of a company’s issued shares, which is determined by multiplying the number of outstanding shares by the current market price per share. Investors often use market cap to gauge the size of a company and assess its performance relative to others in the market. 

A higher market cap generally signifies a larger company. Market cap fluctuates with changes in share prices, reflecting the perceived value of the company based on supply and demand dynamics in the market. Thus, market cap represents the publicly perceived value of a company.

How Does Market Capitalization Increase or Decrease?

Market capitalization is calculated by multiplying the total number of a company’s shares by the market price per share. Therefore, if the share price increases, the market cap also increases, and if the share price decreases, the market cap decreases accordingly.
