| Brookfield Renewable Partners is engaged in owning a portfolio of renewable power generating facilities primarily in North America, Colombia, Brazil, Europe, India and China. Co. invests in renewable assets directly, as well as with institutional partners, joint venture partners and through other arrangements. Co.'s operations are segmented by hydroelectric, wind, solar, storage and other (cogeneration and biomass), and corporate, with hydroelectric and wind further segmented by geography (i.e., North America, Colombia, Brazil, Europe and Asia). We show 2 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our BEP shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute BEP market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing BEP market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing BEP'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 BEP versus a peer is one thing; comparing
BEP 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 BEP can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching BEP by allowing them to research the BEP market cap history.
