Stocks with higher promoters holding: Do you own any of these?

Stocks with higher promoters holding

Out of all shareholders, promoters are the ones who know most about their businesses and the company’s future potential. If promoters are willing to invest their money by purchasing stocks from open market, there are high chances that they believe the stock is undervalued and should rise in the future. This is the main reason why investors are always willing to invest in stocks with higher promoters holding. Promoter is functional role more than legal designation. 

Promoter is someone who is involved in making the company and is responsible for the overall functioning of the organisation. The company has investors and private limited company is allowed to have promoters, domestic investors, and foreign institutional investors. Public limited company can have retail investors apart from above-mentioned investors. Shares which are held by promoters are called as promoter’s stake or promoter’s holding. One thing which investors should keep in mind is that promoters are responsible for the overall success and growth of organisation. As a result, even experienced investors tend to invest in stocks with higher promoters holding. 

Simply put, these stocks are considered safer to invest in comparison to those which have relatively lower holdings of promoters. The reason behind this logic is simple. If promoters/insiders of the company think that their company’s shares are worth buying, the possibility of that organisation doing better in the future is pretty high.
