| Resolute Forest Products is engaged in the forest products industry, with a range of products, including market pulp, tissue, wood products, and papers. Co. reports its activities in four business segments: Market pulp, which includes virgin pulp and recycled bleached kraft pulp; Tissue, which manufactures a range of tissue products for the retail and away-from-home markets, including recycled and virgin paper product; Wood products, which produces dimension spruce-pine-fir lumber and provides wood chips to its pulp and paper mills; and Paper, which is a producer of newsprint and producer of uncoated mechanical papers in North America for uses such as inserts and flyers. We show 48 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our RFP shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute RFP market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing RFP market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing RFP'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 RFP versus a peer is one thing; comparing
RFP 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 RFP can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching RFP by allowing them to research the RFP market cap history.
