I am new to stock markets, so mind my noobness.
I was reading an article on Economic Times about the recent bull run of top companies during 23-27 July week. The article shows an increase in m-cap of 1-2 lakh crores for all companies but the changes in the stock prices have been in the range of +20-60 pts. So, how can there m-cap can rise from few thousand crores to lakh crores?
According to my understanding the numbers shown in the article don’t kind of add up.
Market capitalisation = Share price x Outstanding shares
Change in ITC m-cap: Rs 35,129.72 crore to Rs 3,69,259.15 crore
Change in SBI m-cap: Rs 22,891.57 crore to Rs 2,55,778.68 crore
Change in HDFC m-cap: Rs 11,712.2 crore to Rs 3,45,563.52 crore
