Fundville » The Most Popular Stocks Among Institutional Investors’ Top Holdings



As we said in our introduction blog of VPStock tool, we will have a lot of fun finding out the popular stocks among institutional investors, the “big guys” who move the market. Table 1 shows the top 100 most popular stocks chosen from the top 10 holdings of all 2720 institutional investors who filed 13F to SEC last quarter. This list is extremely important, in our view, it’s a much better representation of institutional investors’ view toward the stock market than Goldman Sach’s hedge fund “VIP 50″. Don’t forget that institutional money managers and mutual fund managers are also a significant part of the market, in addition to hedge fund managers. A recent academic study shows that top 25% holdings of mutual fund managers significantly outperformed the market in 15 years from 1990.

Most of these stocks are the well known, large cap, S&P 500 stocks. However, some ETFs, especially the gold ETF GLD was also very popular. GLD was ranked No. 19, better than Coca Cola and Walmart.  Surprisingly, CTSH, stock of Cognizant Technology, was in the list and ranked No. 65, more popular than both American Express and Research in Motion.

Please add your observations as comments.
