| Kronos Worldwide produces and markets titanium dioxide pigments (TiO2), a base industrial product used in various applications. Co., along with its distributors and agents, sell and provide technical services for its products to customers. Co.'s TiO2 are used for coatings, plastics, paper and other applications. Co.'s TiO2 has three complementary businesses which are: selling ilmenite ore to third parties; manufacturing and selling iron-based chemicals, which are co-products and processed co-products of sulfate and chloride process TiO2 pigment production; and manufacturing and selling titanium oxychloride and titanyl sulfate, which are side-stream products from the production of TiO2. We show 49 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our KRO shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute KRO market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing KRO market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing KRO'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 KRO versus a peer is one thing; comparing
KRO 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 KRO can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching KRO by allowing them to research the KRO market cap history.
