Investment term of the day: market capitalisation
Market capitalisation, sometimes called market cap, is calculated by taking the number of outstanding shares of stock multiplied by the current price-per-share.
The market capitalisation can be used as a proxy for public opinion on a company’s net-worth and can be used to determine a company’s size rather than sales or total asset figures. It can be a determining factor in some forms of market valuation.
