How Are Stock Prices Determined

The worth of a company is often referred to as its market capitalization -“market cap”. The worth of a company is represented by the company share price in relation to the number of shares outstanding.

The stock price of a company is decided on when it goes public and trades on the stock exchange. The initial price is calculated when a bank used valuation techniques to calculate a companies value. When demand for a stock is high, the price will increase. When a company is facing growth issues and investors cannot see a future for it, the stock price will decrease. For example, if a company is worth $200 million it may issue one million shares for $200.
