Market capitalization is often used to rank the size of companies.
However, it measures only the equity component of a company's capital structure and does not reflect management's decision as to how much debt (or leverage) is used to finance the firm.
A more comprehensive measure of a firm's size is enterprise value (EV), which gives effect to outstanding debt, preferred stock, and other factors.
The market cap is also used in ranking the relative size of stock exchanges, being a measure of the sum of the market capitalizations of all companies listed on each stock exchange.
What are the different levels of market capitalization?
There are three main levels of market capitalization - largecap, midcap and smallcap.
The market regulator defines largecap companies as those listed companies which are ranked from 1-100 in terms of market capitalization.
