Where to find Float or Outstanding Shares in API

I’ve gone through the Alpaca and Polygon API docs and cannot find float or even outstanding shares for a stock. This article mentions outstanding shares under “common data points” so I’m sure it’s there, but I cannot find it. https://alpaca.markets/learn/market-data-api-intro/

Can someone point me to the endpoint that returns float or outstanding shares? Thanks!

I need float too. Did you find a solution?

I never found anything from Alpaca or Polygon. I moved on to some other work, but when I get back to this part of my algo I’ll have to pull it from another data source.

I discovered that Alpha Vantage provides float. API keys are free!
