| Arlington Asset Investment is an investment firm that focuses on investing in mortgage related assets. Co.'s investment capital is allocated between mortgage servicing right (MSR) related assets, credit investments, and agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS). Co.'s MSR related assets represent investments for which the return is based on the economic performance of a pool of specific MSRs. Co.'s credit investments include investments in mortgage loans secured by either residential, commercial real property or MBS. Co.'s agency MBS consist of residential mortgage pass-through certificates for which the principal and interest payments are guaranteed by a U.S. government sponsored enterprise. We show 8 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.
