| Afya is a medical education group in Brazil based on number of medical school seats, delivering an end-to-end physician-centric ecosystem that serves and empowers students to be lifelong medical learners from the moment they join them as medical students through their medical residency preparation, graduation program, and continuing medical education activities. We show 3 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AFYA shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AFYA market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AFYA market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AFYA'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 AFYA versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AFYA 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 AFYA can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AFYA by allowing them to research the AFYA market cap history.
