| WisdomTree Japan SmallCap Dividend Fund is an open-end management investment company. The Fund seeks investment results that closely correspond to the price and yield performance of the WisdomTree Japan SmallCap Dividend Index (the Index). The Index measures the performance of dividend paying small-capitalization companies in Japan. Companies are weighted in the Index based on annual cash dividends paid. As of Mar 31 2015, the Fund's total assets and investment portfolio totaled $345,830,285 and $341,298,853, respectively. We show 267 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our DGS shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute DGS market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing DGS market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing DGS'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 DGS versus a peer is one thing; comparing
DGS 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 DGS can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching DGS by allowing them to research the DGS market cap history.
