FANG stocks are soaring.
And we’re excited that we broke $100/share?
Why aren’t our stocks $1000 a share? I understand there was a “dark” period there, but I don’t understand why we’re not valued at least as much as Google.
FANG stocks are soaring.
- How come there’s so many “I’m so smart, I have all the right answers” and yet none of you chose to basically explain or help out here?
Sounds like a lot of people don’t know this answer and just want to pretend to be hotshots. Ok, cool buddies, ok cool.
- Intuit splattintern1, this is stuff we learned in highschool econ. the market cap determines the value of the company, not the price per share. Microsoft market cap is $974b. Google is $808b. and yeah, this post is so stupid you appear to be a troll, and a poor troll at that, even by blind troll standards.May 1210
- Ok, so we have more shares outstanding. Cool. But how do we fix that? I need my stock to be worth $2-3k a share. Not $130 and then Microsoft gives me 300 shares, which doesn’t seem like a lot of money overall.
- Square skaoIdmoreMicrosoft has one of the largest market caps in the world. The stock has split in the past which is why the price per share is low. As far as I know, Amazon never split which is why a single stock is expensive. Overall, Microsoft is still in the top 5.
For your stock to reach $2k-$3k, Microsoft would have to become a $10 trillion dollar company. Not going to happen any time soon...
You have so few shares because you are an intern. Even if the stock was $1000, they would have given you a similar value (say, 40 stocks at $1000 instead of what you have now).
- And Microsoft gorilla is right. You did not get granted a certain number of shares, you were granted a certain value of stock.
The value was converted in to a number of shares on some specific day, I don’t remember if it is your first Monday or first Friday or the last day of your first month or wtfever. At that point the number of shares becomes locked based on (granted value)/(that days stock price) and then that quantity gets divided over the number of vesting periods you have.
So really you want the stock to have a random crash immediately before your quantity is locked and then for it to recover and go up before each vest if you are an immediate-seller.
- Amazon sekuroIn case you actually are an idiot, companies can split/reverse split their stocks to change their value of the stock. The actual value does not matter, though there are advantages to a high/low stock price from a companies perspective.
- Are u serious or u just wanted to post something on blind. Either way do some research before asking dumb questions!
- Chase GdQc76OP clearly is a typical engineer with no knowledge in finance. someone literally asked at school a few years back saying google is larger than apple because the stock price is so much higher
- Super simplified to the point of being close to wrong but still better than what you have figured out on your own so far lol.
Take company value, divide by number of shares available to trade, that’s a value of a share of stock.
Microsoft and google are both worth about the same as far as mega tech companies go. They have wildly different stock prices... why?
Microsoft has 7.6 billion shares available and is worth close to a trillion dollars.
Google has 350 million shares available and is worth 800 million dollars.
So if the value of the companies are close but he number of shares are wildly different then the one with way more shares must have a per share price that is way lower.
(Blah blah market cap is actually number of shares times stock price, but for purposes of this explanation it doesn’t matter)
