    • Thanks to all that have helped me to learn about % insiders/institutional ownership of a stock. What I've learned is that this is not an accurate, certainly not a real time, indicator of a stocks direction because the data is out of date by up to 3 months (Quarter of a year). It is a good historical picture.

      I have been quite down on myself for not knowing this and applying it to my watch of SVNT over the past several months. However, I've come to realize that I am no longer an active investor, having not really bought or sold much anything other than a retirement mutual fund in over two years Therefore, naturally I am not watching the details like I used to.

      I've also learned that my own Fidelity acct has excellent research screens if I'd just care to look em up, ha! The following is what Fidelity has for SVNT on insiders/insttitutional ownership. In summary, SVNT's recent history has not been good in holding onto ownership which I might add is contrary to what I mistakenly lead to believe. It would appear however that the likes of Vanguard, Blcakrock, Wellington, Ishares & Templeton as current holders is a good sign to me that we are in good company. Like most of us here I think what counts with SVNT is what's happening right now with the next 2/15/13 Qtrly results.

      • Don, really cool of you to post all this in for us! Appreciate it. However, I've since done my own overdue due dilligence with my own Fidelity acct screens. Havnen't needed to stay up on this for years because I haven't been an active investor and still now. Just stuck holding SVNT. Anyway, thx, and your screens pretty much jive with what my Fidelity screens say. kg

    • Institutional ownership is reported quarterly. Other Insider transactions are filed on Forms 3, 4 and 5 and are available through EDGAR Online as they are reported (10 days and 2 days after the event for Forms 3 and 4, 45 days after the close of the company's Fiscal Year for Form 5). If you wait for Yahoo Finance updates they can be as much as two weeks late. The best source is EDGAR Online.

      • Don and Mike, thank you for this.

        So, this kind of data isn't even available other than qtrly and upon announcement! Darn! Should have known! Very troubling to me at this time realizing I've been thinking that the "% of Float Held by Institutional & Mutual Fund Owners: 84%" was up to date enough. I should have pursued my own doubts on this 3 months ago!

        guard, I'm looking at the subject Yahoo "Major Holders" screen right now. I think it's safe to say that the 84% corresponds to the Sep 30, 2012 last date "Reported" which you'll find in the Top Institutional Holders table further down on the screen. This corresponds with what Mike is telling us, Qtrly Reporting only.

        Don, help me out a little with your Etrade screens. Mind you I don't have an acct id & pswrd with Etrade so you maybe seeing something I can't see. I can't find this 61.8% "insider sales". Besides, we're looking for % insider/institutional Ownership. I do see a "53.92 %" for SVNT in Etrade on: Fundamentals/KEY STATISTICS/Shareholder Equity/Institutional Ownership. Where'd you come up with the "61.8% per etrade...noted insider sales this week as "planned"."???


    • 61.8% per etrade...noted insider sales this week as "planned".
      38% non-institutional.
