| American Campus Communities is a real estate investment trust focusing on the acquisition, design, financing, development, construction management, leasing, and management of student housing properties. Co. has four reportable segments: Owned Properties, which includes off-campus properties that are located in close proximity to the school campus; On-Campus Participating Properties, which includes on-campus properties that are operated under long-term ground/facility leases; Development Services, which consists of development and construction management services; and Property Management Services, which includes third-party management contracts in which Co. is responsible for operations. We show 43 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our ACC shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute ACC market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing ACC market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing ACC'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 ACC versus a peer is one thing; comparing
ACC 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 ACC can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching ACC by allowing them to research the ACC market cap history.
