Institutions will often hold stock in bigger companies, and we expect to see insiders owning a noticeable percentage of the smaller ones. Companies that used to be publicly owned tend to have lower insider ownership.

NasdaqCM:DSKE Ownership Summary, November 18th 2019

What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About Daseke?

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 Daseke does have institutional investors; and they hold 58% of the stock. This suggests some credibility amongst professional investors. But we can't rely on that fact alone, since institutions make bad investments sometimes, just like everyone does. If multiple institutions change their view on a stock at the same time, you could see the share price drop fast. It's therefore worth looking at Daseke's earnings history, below. Of course, the future is what really matters.

NasdaqCM:DSKE Income Statement, November 18th 2019

Investors should note that institutions actually own more than half the company, so they can collectively wield significant power. We note that hedge funds don't have a meaningful investment in Daseke. Quite a few analysts cover the stock, so you could look into forecast growth quite easily.

Insider Ownership Of Daseke

The definition of company insiders can be subjective, and does vary between jurisdictions. Our data reflects individual insiders, capturing board members at the very least. The company management answer to the board; and the latter should represent the interests of shareholders. Notably, sometimes top-level managers are on the board, themselves.

Insider ownership is positive when it signals leadership are thinking like the true owners of the company. However, high insider ownership can also give immense power to a small group within the company. This can be negative in some circumstances.

Shareholders would probably be interested to learn that insiders own shares in Daseke, Inc.. In their own names, insiders own US$8.9m worth of stock in the US$202m company. This shows at least some alignment. You can click here to see if those insiders have been buying or selling.

General Public Ownership

The general public holds a 37% stake in DSKE. 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.

    Why Airlines Don't Want to Refund Your Flight Tickets

    The world's airlines might have to repay $35 billion in customer cash during the next three months, according to industry body IATA; the largest of these companies each held close to $5 billion in customer advance payments at the end of December, corporate filings show. What happens to this customer money is a hugely important question that could determine whether businesses will remain solvent or will need a government bailout. Tour operator Tui AG, for example, secured a 1.8 billion-euro ($1.9 billion) rescue loan from the German government last month, even though it had taken in about 2.9 billion euros of advance payments from customers — it had spent much of this cash.

    The US Supreme Court just sided with Republicans in the first coronavirus-related election case

    The US Supreme Court had one day to decide the first in what will surely be a slew of coronavirus-related cases. This one concerned the April 7 Wisconsin general and presidential primary elections and an extension for mail-in ballots ordered by a lower court late last week. In a 5-4 decision, with the conservative justices all joining to approve and the progressives dissenting, the high court sided with the Republican National Committee.

With Cohen earning an estimated $1.3 billion in 2019 after the firm's main hedge fund posted a 14.9% gain, it's no wonder market watchers follow his moves religiously.

    Trump’s personal stake in the malaria-drug maker Sanofi could be as small as $99

    As President Donald Trump has persistently discussed the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, critics have wondered about his motivation, given the drug's far-from-certain performance on the global stage as a treatment for coronavirus, and the Food and Drug Administration's refusal so far to approve it as a treatment for COVID-19. The New York Times says Trump has a “small personal stake” in Sanofi, the French drug manufacturer that produces the drug. The report doesn't say how small, but it notes that his three family trusts have investments in a Dodge & Cox mutual fund whose largest holding is Sanofi.

    ‘The worst is behind us’ — the most attractive risk-reward in years means it is time to buy stocks, Morgan Stanley says

    The worst may be very much ahead when it comes to the virus but Morgan Stanley's chief U.S. equity strategist Mike Wilson says that for stocks and investors the worst was behind us. Wilson said Sunday bear markets end with recessions and that stocks had reached a good entry point for investors. “With the forced liquidation of assets in the past month largely behind us, unprecedented and unbridled monetary and fiscal intervention led by the U.S. and the most attractive valuation we have seen since 2011, we stick to our recent view that the worst is behind us for this cyclical bear market that began two years ago, not last month,” Wilson said in a note.

    Coronavirus crisis will leave 3 lasting scars, even if the economy recovers in fourth quarter, Pimco warns

    The U.S. economy is in the midst of one of the deepest, most painful recessions the country has ever seen, but, as long as the pieces fall into place, it could also prove to be one of the shortest, according to a blog post from Joachim Fels, global economic adviser at Pimco. “Unlike previous recessions, usually caused by the interplay of economic and financial imbalances, interest rate hikes, or oil price spikes, the trigger of the present crisis is an exogenous shock,” he wrote. “We are seeing the first-ever recession by government decree — a necessary, temporary, partial shutdown of the economy aimed at preventing an even larger humanitarian crisis.”
