Co. has two segments: Kmart, which includes stores that are mainly free-standing units that carry a range of products, including consumer electronics, seasonal merchandise, outdoor living, toys, lawn and garden equipment, food and consumables and apparel; and Sears Domestic, which includes its full-line stores, specialty stores, commercial sales and home services. Co. operates a number of websites under the sears.com and kmart.com banners which provide products and the capability for its members and customers to engage in cross-channel transactions. We show 34 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our SHLD shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute SHLD market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing SHLD market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing SHLD'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 SHLD versus a peer is one thing; comparing
SHLD 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 SHLD can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching SHLD by allowing them to research the SHLD market cap history.
