| IHS Markit is an information company. Co. is organized into the following segments: Financial Services, which provides pricing and reference data, indices, valuation and trading services, trade processing, enterprise software, and managed services; Transportation, which serves the automotive value chain with a focus on original equipment manufacturers, parts suppliers, and dealers, as well as provides, on behalf of the International Maritime Organization, the global ID for various ocean-going ships; and Resources, which provides technical information, analytical tools, and market forecasting and consulting for the upstream industry. We show 24 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our INFO shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute INFO market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing INFO market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing INFO'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 INFO versus a peer is one thing; comparing
INFO 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 INFO can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching INFO by allowing them to research the INFO market cap history.
