| Bank of New York Mellon divides its businesses into two business segments, Investment Services and Investment and Wealth Management. Co. also has an Other segment, which includes the leasing portfolio, corporate treasury activities (including Co.'s securities portfolio), derivatives and other trading activity, corporate and bank-owned life insurance, renewable energy investments and business exits. Co.'s two principal U.S. banking subsidiaries engage in trust and custody activities, investment management services, banking services and various securities-related activities. Co. has four other U.S. bank and/or trust company subsidiaries focusing on trust products and services across the U.S. We show 47 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our BK shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute BK market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing BK market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing BK'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 BK versus a peer is one thing; comparing
BK 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 BK can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching BK by allowing them to research the BK market cap history.
