Institutional Ownership Opinions


Recommended Posts

What is your take on Institutional Ownership?  When is it too high?  What are the risks?  Benefits?  I know Peter Lynch recommends low institutional ownership.


I was researching KALU and noticed they are at 99.4% institutional ownership which led me to start asking questions.  Thanks.

I just look to see who the biggest holders are. If the biggest holders are Vanguard and State St., that probably means the stock is not that popular with institutions. If the largest holders are Fidelity and Wellington, that probably means it's an institutional favorite. If the largest holders are hedge funds, that will also tell you something.
