Understanding the changing numbers of ACC shares outstanding — and
comprehending the concept of differing number of shares outstanding in general comparing companies like ACC versus peers —
is critical for investors. Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies.
Furthermore, via issuance of new shares over time, or the repurchase of existing shares, the number of shares outstanding can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching ACC by allowing them to research ACC shares outstanding history
