| Carriage Services is a provider of funeral and cemetery services and merchandise in the U.S. Co. operates in two business segments: funeral home operations and cemetery operations. Co.'s funeral home operations are principally service businesses that provide burial and cremation services and related merchandise, such as caskets and urns. Co.'s cemeteries operations provide cemetery interment rights (primarily grave sites, lawn crypts, mausoleum spaces and niches), related cemetery merchandise (such as memorial markers, outer burial containers, and monuments) and services (interments, inurnments and installation of cemetery merchandise). We show 51 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our CSV shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute CSV market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing CSV market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing CSV'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 CSV versus a peer is one thing; comparing
CSV 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 CSV can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching CSV by allowing them to research the CSV market cap history.
