Market Cap V shares outstanding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi

Whats is a good ratio to see on a company balance sheet between Market Cap and Shares outstanding.

Google has market cap of 100 billion and only 250 million shares outstanding.
It has a ratio of 400 : 1 whilst (BAC) Bank of America has a ratio of 9 :1, with a market cap of 900 and shares outstanding of 7. billion.

What is a bad set up? An ideal set up?
What is the worst case scenario set up?

That has nothing to do with anything. But ideally only shares over $5 are considered investment grade.

Market cap is simply shares outstanding times price. Its "ratio" is the price of the stock and there is no specific number to look for, since that would mean you're only putting money in companies with a share price between x and x.

Not relevant to decision making IMO.

The ratio you noticed is simply the PPS. Market capitalization is the number of shares multiplied by the share price.
