| Marten Transport is a temperature-sensitive truckload carrier focusing on transporting and distributing food and other consumer packaged goods that require a temperature-controlled or insulated environment. Co. has four reporting segments: Truckload, which provides a combination of regional short-haul and medium-to-long-haul full-load transportation services; Dedicated, which provides customized transportation solutions; Intermodal, which transports its customers' freight utilizing its temperature-controlled trailers and refrigerated containers on railroad flatcars; and Brokerage, which develops contractual relationships with and arranges for third-party carriers to transport freight. We show 50 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our MRTN shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute MRTN market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing MRTN market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing MRTN'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 MRTN versus a peer is one thing; comparing
MRTN 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 MRTN can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching MRTN by allowing them to research the MRTN market cap history.
