Smart Money Follows Big Money

An interesting fact I have come to understand so far in my short period on Earth has been that smart money tends to follow the moves made by big money players. In other words, investors that are looking to play it relatively safe will keep their eyes on trades made by institutions as well as those on the inside. So, is big money flowing as it relates to TGTX? Here’s the data:

  • Institutions – Currently, institutional investors hold 65.20% of the company. However, it is important to note that the ownership held by institutions has seen a move in the amount of 2.49% throughout the last 3 months.
  • Insider Holdings – as it relates to insiders, members of the management team and others close to TGTX currently own 0.50% of the company. Insider ownership of the company has seen a change of -7.26% over the past quarter.

Looking At Share Counts

Investors tend to like to know the counts of shares both available and outstanding. As far as TG Therapeutics, Inc., currently there are 95.18M and there is a float of 74.05M. These numbers mean that of the total of 95.18M shares of TGTX currently in existence today, 74.05M are available to trade hands on the public market.

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 TGTX, the short percent of the float is 17.81%.
