Market Cap (3/5)

This is the slang for “market capitalization.” This measure demonstrates the total worth of all the shares of stock issued by a company. A company’s market cap provides helpful information about an organization’s presence in the market, which investors often associate with the riskiness of their investments. We tend to find well-known companies in the large-cap category and more specialized, minor companies in the small-cap category.
