A company’s MARKET CAPITALIZATION , aka MARKET CAP, is the total value of a company’s publicly traded stock. 

Market cap equals the number of publicly traded shares multiplied by the current share price. SO, let’s say a company with 10 million shares outstanding and a share price of $10. This company would have a market cap of $100 million.

The market cap fluctuates as it’s price moves up and down.
