| AerCap Holdings is a holding company. Through its subsidiaries, Co. is engaged in aircraft leasing. Co. leases most of its aircraft to airlines under operating leases. Under these leases, the lessee is responsible for the maintenance and servicing of the equipment during the lease term and Co. receives the benefit, and assumes the risks, of the residual value of the equipment at the end of the lease. Co. also provides cash management and administrative services to securitization vehicles and joint ventures. Cash management services consist primarily of treasury services. Co.'s administrative services consist primarily of accounting and corporate secretarial services. We show 13 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AER shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AER market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AER market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AER'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 AER versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AER 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 AER can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AER by allowing them to research the AER market cap history.
