| Cypress Semiconductor manufactures and sells embedded system solutions for automotive, industrial, consumer and enterprise end markets. Co. operates under two reportable business segments: Microcontroller and Connectivity Division, which focuses on connect and compute solutions for the Internet of Things and automotive solutions that improve the in-cabin user experience, as well as Co.'s intellectual property business; and Memory Products Division, which focuses on fail-safe storage and datalogging solutions for mission critical applications, as well as Co.'s nonvolatile DIMM subsidiary AgigA Tech Inc. We show 42 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our CY shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute CY market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing CY market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing CY'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 CY versus a peer is one thing; comparing
CY 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 CY can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching CY by allowing them to research the CY market cap history.
