penny stocks high FII holdings

Since investing in penny stocks comes with significantly high risk and increased volatile, investors are required to be 100% confident when they invest in penny stocks. Therefore, such investors should invest in penny stocks which have high FII holdings. Increased foreign investments can be a good measure which can make the investors confident. Penny stocks which have high FII holdings are the ones having strong and sustainable business models and they have been able to gather overseas investments. 

Foreign institutional investor (FII) means an investor or investment fund which tends to make investments in a country outside of the one in which that investor or fund is registered or headquartered. Term “foreign institutional investor” is mostly used in India, and it refers to overseas entities investing in India’s financial markets. FIIs range from hedge funds, insurance companies to pension funds, investment banks, and MFs (mutual funds). These investors are considered important sources of capital in developing economies. Despite of this fact, a range of developing nations, including India, have put restrictions on the total value of assets an FII is allowed to purchase and number of shares a particular FII can buy, mainly in the single company. As a result these restrictions, FIIs cannot influence individual companies and India’s financial markets.

If a particular investment fund in the US projects high-growth investment opportunity in a company which is listed in India, it can go ahead and take a long position by buying shares in Indian stock market. Such arrangement also helps the private US investors who are not allowed to purchase Indian stocks directly. Because of this arrangement, they can now invest in that investment fund and participate in high-growth potential opportunities. 

Penny stocks which have high FII holdings are ones in which foreign investors have confidence and such investors conduct their own due diligence before making any big investments. Therefore, retail investors who are not equipped with financial knowledge can take long positions by just purchasing penny stocks which have high FII holdings. Hence, they just have to track foreign investment funds which are allowed to make overseas investments. FIIs are regarded as both trigger and catalyst for the market performance. This is because these investors tend to encourage increased investments from all classes of investors, which further helps in financial market growth. FIIs are important source of foreign investment in several countries because they bring in capital and help in improving the liquidity of local securities markets.
