What Does Capitalization Mean in Options Trading?

Capitalization is when the sum total of all the securities of a corporation over a longer period of time, is recognized. This includes the company's debt, profit, and fixed assets.
Fixed assets are considered to be those that will not depreciate short term. More technically, the securities might include debentures, common stock, preferred stock, bonds, and surplus.
