| Arlington Asset Investment is an investment firm that focuses primarily on investing in mortgage related assets. Co.'s agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) consist of residential mortgage pass-through certificates for which the principal and interest payments are guaranteed by either a U.S. government sponsored enterprise, such as the Federal National Mortgage Association and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, or by a U.S. government agency. Co.'s mortgage credit investments generally include investments in mortgage loans secured by either residential or commercial real property or MBS collateralized by residential or commercial mortgage loans. We show 2 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AAIC shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AAIC market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AAIC market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AAIC's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of AAIC versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AAIC market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like AAIC can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AAIC by allowing them to research the AAIC market cap history.
