What does institutional ownership tell us about FIBI Holdings?

Institutional investors typically compare their own returns to the returns of a commonly tracked index. They therefore generally consider buying larger companies that are included in the relevant benchmark.

FIBI Holdings already has institutions on the share register. Indeed, they hold a respectable stake in the company. This implies that analysts working for these institutions have reviewed the stock and like it. But like everyone else, they can be wrong. When multiple institutions hold a stock, there is always a risk that they are in a “crowded trade”. When such a transaction goes wrong, multiple parties may compete to quickly sell shares. This risk is higher in a company with no history of growth. You can see FIBI Holdings’ historic earnings and revenue below, but keep in mind there’s always more to the story.

FIBI Holdings Insider Ownership

While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders. The management of the company runs the company, but the CEO will answer to the board of directors, even if he is a member of it.

Most view insider ownership as a positive because it can indicate that the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, there are times when too much power is concentrated within this group.

General public property

The general public, including retail investors, owns 33% of the company’s shares and therefore cannot be easily ignored. While this size of ownership may not be enough to sway a policy decision in their favor, they can still have a collective impact on company policies.

Private Company Ownership

Our data indicates that private companies own 23% of the company’s shares. It’s hard to draw conclusions from this fact alone, so it’s worth investigating who owns these private companies. Sometimes insiders or other related parties have an interest in shares of a public company through a separate private company.
