Thats how the game is played. This stock is at 20% discount to book. Been buying my self, Very large purchases last qtr see 13F.
Or institutions dump while retail buys. The game gets played that way as well. It all depends on what part of the cycle you are on.
i suggest you look at last qtr numbers it says it all. Institutions increased their holdings by close to 10%.
Looks like the insiders are different from the herds.
