| Yamana Gold is engaged in the production of gold and silver, development stage properties, and exploration properties and land positions throughout the Americas, including Canada, Brazil, Chile and Argentina. We show 11 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AUY shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AUY market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AUY market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AUY'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 AUY versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AUY 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 AUY can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AUY by allowing them to research the AUY market cap history.
