Insider Alert! Promoters are Increasing their Stakes in these 5 Companies

Oct 19, 2021

One of the key differences between western markets and India is the way management and owner(s) work.

The ultimate owner or promoter of a listed business and senior management are different in the United States and Europe.

However, in India, management and ownership are often married. So, when a promoter increases their stake in a firm, there is a lot of curiosity in knowing why that happened.

Promoters may have a hundred reasons to sell, but they generally only have one compelling reason to buy. The market thinks promoters know something that it doesn't.

Promoters also increase or decrease their stake just to comply with market regulator's norms.

The case for investing in a stock in which the promoter has increased their ownership is straightforward yet powerful.

When controlling owners discover that their company's stock is trading at a considerable discount to its estimated intrinsic value, they may acquire more shares to expand their holdings.

Promoters use different methods to boost their holdings in the company such as buyback of shares, rights issue, direct acquisition through markets, preferential share issue, and warrants.

Let's take a look at the list of stocks where promoters are increasing their stake in the last few quarters.

What does promoter increasing stake in a company indicate?

It's often regarded as beneficial when promoters raise their ownership in their firm. It shows that the promoter is optimistic about the company's future potential.

Continuously rising stake by promoters can lead to an early signal of improving fundamentals and of course, a sharp rise in stock prices.

It's rare to see promoters' holdings grow on a consistent basis. They generally purchase to shore up their holdings following a dramatic market fall.

They don't keep increasing their investment in a rising market quarter after quarter. If they did, it would demonstrate that they are not just confident in their businesses, but also that they are highly bullish. This is precisely what could have occurred for the above stocks.

Also, promoters could also be buying shares of their companies because a large percentage of their holdings are pledged.

Share pledging often goes unnoticed in the first place but there are multiple reasons why high pledged shares can be negative in the long run.

While promoter holding alone cannot indicate whether or not a company is a smart investment, it's certainly one of the elements to consider.

Also, looking at the decrease and increase in promoter holding is more important than observing the actual promoter holding.
