Market capitalization (2)
Full Definition

The total market value of a firm. It is defined as the product of the company's stock price per share and the total number of shares outstanding. The market cap should not be confused with the float, which is the amount of shares in circulation. A company's market cap can greatly exceed the float, especially in the case of a new publically traded company.
