Total Shares Outstanding

Total Shares Outstanding measures the total number of common shares that have been authorised and issued by the company, and purchased by investors.

This figure is quotes in millions of shares.

Stockopedia explains Shares Out

Shares outstanding can be calculated as either basic or fully diluted. The fully diluted shares outstanding count includes the potential future impact of dilution from convertible securities held such as options, warrants or convertibles.

High annual growth in Shares Outstanding can be seen as a measure of dilution which is often a red flag for investors as it indicates that a company has to raise more and more capital.
