Question: Where can I find total stock market capitalization (value)?
Company "Market Cap" or "Stock Market Capitalization" is the value of all of the company's issued and outstanding shares multiplied by the stock price on a given day. The investment community uses this figure to determine a company's size, as opposed to using sales or total asset figures. The market cap is also used to rank a company as wither a large-cap, mid-cap or small-cap company.
Stock Market Capitalization = Current Shares Outstanding x Current Stock Market Price.
