Question: Where can I find total stock market capitalization (value)?

Answer


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.  

Go to the Virtual Business Library's Company & Financial Information section for links to useful resources including links to the following suggested resources.

Hoovers: Provides Market Value as part of the company overview and it is found under the Financials tab.

Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage: Provides Market Value under the company summary.

Mergent Online: Provides Market Cap data at the top of a company profile.

Market Capitalization for a country is the share price times the number of shares outstanding for all of the listed domestic companies.
