| American Assets Trust is a self-administered real estate investment trust that owns, operates, acquires and develops retail, office, multifamily and mixed-use properties in Southern California, Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Texas and Hawaii. Co. operates in four segments: Retail, which primarily include rental of retail space and other tenant services, including tenant reimbursements, parking and storage space rental; Office, which primarily include rental of office space and other tenant services; Multifamily, which include rental of apartments and other tenant services; and Mixed-use, which include rental of retail space and other tenant services. We show 43 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AAT shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AAT market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AAT market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AAT'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 AAT versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AAT 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 AAT can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AAT by allowing them to research the AAT market cap history.
