Smart Money Follows Big Money

Humans that are into investing seem to be infatuated with the term “Smart money follows big money.” It makes sense. Big money became big money by making smart decisions in the market. So, by following the moves of big money institutions and insiders, we can get a glimpse of what market pros think about a stock. When it comes to big money interest in SNES, here’s what we’re seeing:

Institutions own 7.10% of the company. Institutional interest has moved by -0.32% over the past three months. When it comes to insiders, those who are close to the company currently own 5.00% percent of SNES shares. Institutions have seen ownership changes of an accumulative 83.62% over the last three months.

What’s The Float Looking Like?

Traders tend to be interested in the counts of shares both available and outstanding. As far as SenesTech, Inc., currently there are 26.54M and there is a float of 25.86M. These data mean that of the total of 26.54M shares of SNES that are out there today, 25.86M are able to be traded in the public space.

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 SNES, the short percent of the float is 2.21%.
