| Copa Holdings is a Latin American provider of airline passenger and cargo service through its two principal operating subsidiaries, Compania Panamera de Aviacion, S.A. (Copa Airlines) and AeroRepublica, S.A. (Copa Colombia). Copa Airlines operates from Panama, and Copa Colombia flies from Colombia to Copa Airlines Hub of the Americas in Panama and operates a business model within Colombia and various cities in the region. Co. provides passengers with access to flights to various destinations through code-share arrangements with United Airlines, Inc. and other airlines pursuant to which each airline places its name and flight designation code on the other's flights. We show 11 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our CPA shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute CPA market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing CPA market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing CPA'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 CPA versus a peer is one thing; comparing
CPA 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 CPA can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching CPA by allowing them to research the CPA market cap history.
