Market capitalization, or ‘market-cap’, is the total market value of a company, i.e. the current market price of one share multiplied into the total no: of shares floated in the market. This is a key variable that investors use to determine the strength and investment worthiness of a company. The size of various stock exchanges, on the other hand, paints a picture of the economy’s strength and buoyancy, and builds investor confidence.
