| Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a portfolio of RNA chemistries and several modes of delivery, Co.'s therapies trigger the RNA interference (RNAi) mechanism to induce knockdown of target genes. Co. is focused on developing drugs for diseases with a genetic basis, typically characterized by the overproduction of one or more proteins that are involved with disease. Co.'s pipeline includes, among others, ARO-AAT, a candidate for the treatment of liver disease, and ARO-APOC3, which is designed to reduce production of Apolipoprotein C-III, a component of triglyceride rich lipoproteins. We show 37 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our ARWR shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute ARWR market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing ARWR market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing ARWR'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 ARWR versus a peer is one thing; comparing
ARWR 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 ARWR can fluctuate over the course of history.
