The mathematical calculation that represents the degree of change over time is known as “percentage change”. In finance, it serves many purposes, and is often used to represent the price change of a commodity.
Percentage change can be applied to any quantity that is measured over time any given time period. Say you are tracking the price of a stock. If the price increased, the formula [(New Price – Old Price)/Old Price] is applied and then take that number and multiply it by 100. If the price of a stock decreased, the formula [(Old Price – New Price)/Old Price] is applied then multiplied by 100.
The formula can be used to track the prices of both individual commodities and large market listings, and also used to compare the values of different currencies. Balance sheets with comparative financial statements often will include prices of specific stocks at different time periods alongside the percentage change over the same periods of time. Over the past three months, FreeSeas, Inc. (OTCMKTS:FREEF) has seen 3891100 shares trade hands on average.

Large-cap companies have a market cap north of $10 billion. These large companies have usually been in business for a long time, and are major participants in well-established sectors. Investors in large-cap companies don’t necessarily bank large returns in short time periods, though are rewarded with a constant increase in share value over the long run.
Mid-cap companies have a market cap of $2 billion – $10 billion. Mid-cap companies are usually established companies operating in an industry that is expected to experience quick growth. Mid-cap companies are usually in the middle of expansion. They carry higher risk than large-cap companies due to the fact that they are not as established, though their growth potential remains an attraction to investors.
Small-cap companies have a market cap of $300 million – $2 billion. These smaller companies are usually newer or perhaps service a niche market or a new industry. Generally considered to be a higher risk than mid or large-cap in part because of their age, their size and the markets they serve. Small-cap companies usually have fewer resources and are more sensitive to the ebb-and-flow of markets. FreeSeas, Inc. (OTCMKTS:FREEF)’s market cap currently sits at $6960.
