| Advantage Oil & Gas is engaged in the business of oil and gas exploitation, development, acquisition and production in the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. We show 11 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AAV shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AAV market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AAV market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AAV'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 AAV versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AAV 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 AAV can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AAV by allowing them to research the AAV market cap history.
