| MVC Capital is an externally managed, non-diversified closed-end management investment company. Co.'s investment objective is to seek to maximize total return from capital appreciation and/or income, though its existing focus is more on yield generating investments. We show 42 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our coverage of MVC's shares outstanding history.
Understanding the changing numbers of MVC shares outstanding — and
comprehending the concept of differing number of shares outstanding in general comparing companies like MVC 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 MVC by allowing them to research MVC shares outstanding history
as well as any other stock in our coverage universe.
