| Federal Realty Investment Trust is an equity real estate investment trust that focuses on the ownership, management, and redevelopment of retail and mixed-use properties located primarily in communities in selected metropolitan markets in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, as well as in California and South Florida. Co. owns or has a majority interest in community and neighborhood shopping centers and mixed-use properties which are operated as predominantly retail real estate projects. We show 46 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our FRT shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute FRT market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing FRT market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing FRT'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 FRT versus a peer is one thing; comparing
FRT 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 FRT can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching FRT by allowing them to research the FRT market cap history.
