Do Institutions Own Shares In PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (NYSE:PMT)?

Simply Wall St

The big shareholder groups in PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (NYSE:PMT) have power over the company. Institutions often own shares in more established companies, while it's not unusual to see insiders own a fair bit of smaller companies. Companies that have been privatized tend to have low insider ownership.

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust has a market capitalization of US$1.4b, so we would expect some institutional investors to have noticed the stock. Our analysis of the ownership of the company, below, shows that institutions own shares in the company. Let's delve deeper into each type of owner, to discover more about PMT.

NYSE:PMT Ownership Summary, April 17th 2019

What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust?

Institutional investors commonly compare their own returns to the returns of a commonly followed index. So they generally do consider buying larger companies that are included in the relevant benchmark index.

We can see that PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust does have institutional investors; and they hold 67% of the stock. This can indicate that the company has a certain degree of credibility in the investment community. However, it is best to be wary of relying on the supposed validation that comes with institutional investors. They too, get it wrong sometimes. When multiple institutions own a stock, there's always a risk that they are in a 'crowded trade'. When such a trade goes wrong, multiple parties may compete to sell stock fast. This risk is higher in a company without a history of growth. You can see PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's historic earnings and revenue, below, but keep in mind there's always more to the story.

NYSE:PMT Income Statement, April 17th 2019

Since institutional investors own more than half the issued stock, the board will likely have to pay attention to their preferences. PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust is not owned by hedge funds. There are plenty of analysts covering the stock, so it might be worth seeing what they are forecasting, too.

Insider Ownership Of PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust

The definition of an insider can differ slightly between different countries, but members of the board of directors always count. Company management run the business, but the CEO will answer to the board, even if he or she is a member of it.

Most consider insider ownership a positive because it can indicate the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, on some occasions too much power is concentrated within this group.

We can see that insiders own shares in PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust. This is a big company, so it is good to see this level of alignment. Insiders own US$34m worth of shares (at current prices). If you would like to explore the question of insider alignment, you can click here to see if insiders have been buying or selling.

General Public Ownership

With a 30% ownership, the general public have some degree of sway over PMT. While this size of ownership may not be enough to sway a policy decision in their favour, they can still make a collective impact on company policies.

Next Steps:

While it is well worth considering the different groups that own a company, there are other factors that are even more important.

    At Tesla, another quarterly loss is likely, but Wall Street is hoping demand remained intact

    Tesla Inc. is expected to report second-quarter results after the bell Wednesday amid a rally for its battered stock fueled by better-than-expected quarterly sales. Investors will zero in on Tesla's (TSLA) outlook for the year and whether the company will continue to say it will sell 360,000 to 400,000 vehicles this year as promised. Tesla earlier this month reported second-quarter sales that were above Wall Street expectations (and a record for the company, it said.) That has buoyed the stock in recent sessions and primed investors to expect a smaller quarterly loss next week.

    At least two natural gas producers cutting back in Appalachia

    At least two Marcellus and Utica shale natural gas producers have announced plans in recent weeks to cut back on drilling amid a sustained drop in commodity prices, Sewickley-based JKLM Energy, which is owned by Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula, told stakeholders last week in Potter County that it would be temporarily halting its drilling rig due to the low price of natural gas. A spokesman for JKLM Energy confirmed the pause in development in Potter Township, where its drilling operations are based and said it was due to low commodity prices.

    Record Sales Lift Sherwin-Williams Despite Tough Conditions

    Sherwin-Williams (NYSE: SHW) is best known for its paint and coatings in the U.S., and with the housing market remaining favorable domestically, it seems natural to think that the company would be doing well. Coming into Tuesday's second-quarter financial report, Sherwin-Williams investors expected that the paint company would be able to keep generating solid growth. Sherwin-Williams' bottom-line results were even better than many had expected, and the company seems optimistic about its prospects for the remainder of the year and beyond.

    ‘Enough is enough’: Warren officially introduces bill to cancel student debt

    Warren first pitched a student debt plan as a presidential candidate in April, and then started discussing the upcoming legislation in June. Taken together, Warren's plans attack student debt in three ways: Cancelling debt, reforming the predatory — or “lousy” — student loan system that's in place, and making college free for all. I was shocked when I woke up one morning … and saw that student loan debt had eclipsed credit card debt,” Rep. Clyburn said at a press conference to unveil the legislation.
