| Bridgford Foods is primarily engaged in the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of a line of frozen and snack food products. Co. operates in two business segments: the processing and distribution of frozen products and the processing and distribution of snack food products. Co. manufactures nearly all of its food products and distributes a line of biscuits, bread dough items, roll dough items, dry sausage products and beef jerky. Co.'s direct store delivery network consists of non-refrigerated snack food products. Co.'s frozen food products division serves both food service and retail customers. We show 50 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our BRID shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute BRID market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing BRID market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing BRID'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 BRID versus a peer is one thing; comparing
BRID 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 BRID can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching BRID by allowing them to research the BRID market cap history.
