What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About Allreal Holding?

Institutions typically measure themselves against a benchmark when reporting to their own investors, so they often become more enthusiastic about a stock once it's included in a major index. We would expect most companies to have some institutions on the register, especially if they are growing.

Allreal Holding already has institutions on the share registry. Indeed, they own a respectable stake in the company. This implies the analysts working for those institutions have looked at the stock and they like it. But just like anyone else, they could be wrong. If multiple institutions change their view on a stock at the same time, you could see the share price drop fast. It's therefore worth looking at Allreal Holding's earnings history below. Of course, the future is what really matters.

We note that hedge funds don't have a meaningful investment in Allreal Holding. The company's largest shareholder is Credit Suisse Asset Management (Switzerland) Ltd., with ownership of 9.3%. For context, the second largest shareholder holds about 5.5% of the shares outstanding, followed by an ownership of 4.3% by the third-largest shareholder. Peter Spuhler, who is the third-largest shareholder, also happens to hold the title of Member of the Board of Directors.

Our studies suggest that the top 25 shareholders collectively control less than half of the company's shares, meaning that the company's shares are widely disseminated and there is no dominant shareholder.
