What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About QL Resources Berhad?

Many institutions measure their performance against an index that approximates the local market. So they usually pay more attention to companies that are included in major indices.

QL Resources Berhad 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.

So it is worth checking the past earnings trajectory of QL Resources Berhad, (below). Of course, keep in mind that there are other factors to consider, too.

After doing some more digging, we found that the top 2 shareholders collectively control more than half of the company's shares, implying that they have considerable power to influence the company's decisions.

The general public-- including retail investors -- own 23% stake in the company, and hence can't easily be ignored. While this size of ownership may not be enough to sway a policy decision in their favour, they can still make a collective impact on company policies.

Sometimes insiders or other related parties have an interest in shares in a public company through a separate private company.
