"AS" stands for Authorized shares and "OS" stands for Outstanding Shares. In the middle there is the Float. AS is the amount of shares a company has approved for release into the Market but doesn't mean they have all those shares out there. For instance a company may have 120 million shares AS but only 90 million shares in the OS which means they still have available 30 million shares to add to the OS in the future which at many times creates a situation of dilution. The "Float" is the difference between the AS minus the OS along with restricted shares which might be held by company Officials that can't sell at the current time. The larger the OS the harder it is for a Penny to move up. Lets say a Penny has a OS of 1.5 billion shares it will very tough to move that particular stock up unless volume is large. The lower the OS always the better. Tomorrow nights topic will be Dilution. What it is and what it means for Penny Stocks.
