| National Instruments provides application software and modular, multifunction hardware for users to create automated test and automated measurement systems. Co.'s programming environments software includes: NI LabVIEW, which is a graphical programming approach that helps visualize every aspect of the application, including hardware configuration, measurement data, and debugging; NI LabWindows/CVI, which is an ANSI C integrated development environment and engineering toolbox with built-in libraries for measurement, analysis, and engineering UI design; and NI Measurement Studio, which is a suite of .NET tools designed for building engineering applications in Microsoft Visual Studio. We show 49 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our NATI shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute NATI market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing NATI market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing NATI'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 NATI versus a peer is one thing; comparing
NATI 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 NATI can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching NATI by allowing them to research the NATI market cap history.
