What Are Big Money Players Doing With Tenax Therapeutics, Inc.

One thing I’ve learned so far in my brief period alive, or somewhat alive is that smart investors tend to follow the moves made by big money players. That is to say, investors that want to play it relatively safe will follow investments made by institutional investors as well as those on the inside. So, where is the big money when it comes to TENX? Here’s the data:

Institutions own 58.70% of the company. Institutional interest has moved by 0 over the past three months. When it comes to insiders, those who are close to the company currently own 16.99% percent of TENX shares. Institutions have seen ownership changes of an accumulative 0.00% over the last three months.

How Many Shares Of TENX Are Available?

Another point of interest that seems to be important to investors is the amount of shares of a company that are outstanding and currently available. At the moment, there are 1.21M shares of Tenax Therapeutics, Inc. outstanding. Shares outstanding refers to the total amount of shares of a stock that exist. As far as the float goes, or the amount of shares that are actually available on the retail market, TENX has a float of 1.21M.

Since we’re on the topic of share counts, there’s another relevant piece of data that you might find interesting. That would be the short percentage of the float. Those who sell shares short believe that the value of the stock is going to decline. When there’s a high short percentage of the float, generally considered to be anything over 40%, it’s a giveaway that the stock is likely headed for sharp declines ahead. Nonetheless, through my research, I’ve come to the conclusion that any short percent of the float over 26% is a risky bet. When it comes to TENX, the short percent of the float is 18.32%.
