Let’s understand what market capitalization is and how it assists you to get the most accurate judgment about a company's performance.

What is Market Capitalisation?

Market Capitalization- A crucial concept that helps investors to determine the true value of a company.

Market Capitalisation is a term used to describe the market value of an organization that is established from its current share price and the total number of its outstanding shares. In addition to being one of the most prominent characteristics of a company, it is also helpful for potential investors to be aware of the risks while investing in the company's stocks.

Initial public offerings (IPOs) are the first step in establishing a company's market cap.

Before launching an IPO, the company that is planning to go public hires an investment bank to carry out valuations in order to analyze its value and decide how many shares will be given to the public and at what cost.

When a company launches its IPO and begins trading publicly, the price completely depends on the supply and demand chain for its shares in the market. When favorable factors cause high demand for the company's shares, the price would increase. Sellers of the stock may drive the stock price down if they do not think the company has growth potential in the future.

Thus, the market cap becomes an estimate of the company's value in real-time.
