    Insider ownership

    Burnaka/uncle/trade, I am trying to compile the total insider ownership and I need some help on missing information. As per Yahoo we have 408M outstanding shares and 51.8% insider ownership. From all the recent SEC filings here are the numbers I could gather, which total 188M or 46.09%. Can someone please tell me who owns the remaining 23M?
    Frost 155,380,905
    Jane 27,579,180
    Rubin 4,269,855
    Baron 285,965
    Paganelli 225,399
    Beir 120,000
    lerner 116,977
    kolosov 25,000
    Yu-Alice 20,000
    Pfenniger 20,000

    • Without knowing the exact number the Bottom line is STILL.... almost all tradable float shares are naked short when you factor in retail.

    • Plus Dr Frost owns 12,167,853 shares and his wife owns 12,154 shares of vector group. This is more than 10% of the company.

      Vector group owns shares in OPK

      From their 2012 annual report :
      (Dollars in Thousands, Except Per Share Amounts)
      Company has made investments in entities where Dr. Frost has
      a relationship. These include the following: (i) three investments in 2006, 2008 and 2009 totaling
      approximately $11,000 in common stock of OPKO Inc. (NYSE: OPK) and its predecessor eXegenics Inc. and
      in January 2013, the Company purchased $5,000 of Opko’s 3.00% convertible senior notes due 2033;
      $500 investment in 2008 in Cardo Medical Inc.; and (iii) a $250 investment in 2008 in Cocrystal Discovery
      Inc. Dr. Frost is a director, executive officer and/or more than 10% shareholder in these entities as well as
      LTS. Additional investments in entities where Dr. Frost has a relationship may be made in the future.

      so his ownership is even more complex than what is reported by Yahoo

        Thanks for the reply holycow, I am a new investor and learning more about the company. I am trying to compute total insider ownership to calculate the true float i.e, insider+institutional+shorts. The numbers I gave include all shares owned by frost via different entities. I read on the forum that lady frost also owns a significant number, however i could not find any links.

        The other question i had for the forum was with respect to float that is being traded at Tel aviv exchange. Is it a fixed float and what are the number of shares allocated to trading on tel aviv exchange.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I think your answer lies in additional ownership by Frost Gamma Trust and other entities that give Dr. Frost additional shares owned by virtue of beneficial ownership.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
