What is market capitalization?

Market capitalization, also commonly referred to as “Market cap”, is a measure for the total market value of outstanding shares of a company on the stock market. It indicates a company’s relative size and value while taking various determinants such as risk and the market’s perception into consideration. There are large-cap (>10 billion), mid-cap (2 to 10 billion) and small-cap (300 million to 2 billion) companies depending on their market capitalization.
