I'm trying to understand the impact of Institutional Ownership in security analysis, e.g 94% float shares of CROX are owned by institutions, https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/crox/institutional-holdings

I want to know whether the high/low ownership of a ticker would affect the buy/sell decision or the outcome of security analysis, and how it's done.

  • I'm not a quant, but this feels to me like something the folks in that stack might be better equipped to answer -- or have stronger opinions on, at least.

  • Are you asking if there some plausible model where % of institutional ownership affects a buy/sell decision? In which case the answer is almost universally "yes". Just about any factor affects buy/sell decisions in some plausible model. Or are you asking whether your unspecified model should incorporate % of institutional ownership in its decisions? In which case the answer is almost universally "depends on your model and why you're considering adding Some Additional Factor". Commented Nov 13, 2023 at 15:26
