| Ventas is a real estate investment trust with a portfolio of senior housing communities, medical office buildings (MOBs), life science, research and innovation centers, hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Co.'s segments are: triple-net leased properties, which invests in and owns senior housing and healthcare properties and leases those properties to healthcare operating companies under triple-net or absolute-net leases; senior living operations, which invests in senior housing communities and engages independent managers to manage those communities; and office operations, which acquires, owns, develops, leases and manages MOBs and life science, research and innovation centers. We show 51 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our VTR shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute VTR market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing VTR market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing VTR'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 VTR versus a peer is one thing; comparing
VTR 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 VTR can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching VTR by allowing them to research the VTR market cap history.
