| The iShares MSCI Eurozone ETF (the “Fund”) (formerly the iShares MSCI EMU ETF) seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of large- and mid-capitalization equities from developed market countries that use the euro as their official currency, as represented by the MSCI EMU Index (the “Index”). The Fund invests in a representative sample of securities included in the Index that collectively has an investment profile similar to the Index. As of Aug 31 2015, the Fund's total assets were $10,189,835,285 and the Fund's investment portfolio was valued at $10,134,615,828. We show 527 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our EZU shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute EZU market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing EZU market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing EZU'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 EZU versus a peer is one thing; comparing
EZU 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 EZU can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching EZU by allowing them to research the EZU market cap history.
