What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About eBay?


Many institutions measure their performance against an index that approximates the local market. So they usually pay more attention to companies that are included in major indices.


As you can see, institutional investors have a fair amount of stake in eBay. This implies the analysts working for those institutions have looked at the stock and they like it. But just like anyone else, they could be wrong. 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 eBay's historic earnings and revenue below, but keep in mind there's always more to the story.

如您所见,机构投资者在eBay中拥有相当多的股份。这意味着在这些机构工作的分析师已经看过这只股票并且他们很喜欢。但是就像其他人一样,他们可能错了。当多家机构拥有一只股票时,他们总是存在处于 “拥挤交易” 的风险。当这样的交易出错时,多方可能会竞相快速出售股票。对于没有成长历史的公司来说,这种风险更高。你可以在下面看到eBay的历史收益和收入,但请记住,故事总会有更多。

Institutional investors own over 50% of the company, so together than can probably strongly influence board decisions. Hedge funds don't have many shares in eBay. The Vanguard Group, Inc. is currently the company's largest shareholder with 11% of shares outstanding. For context, the second largest shareholder holds about 8.5% of the shares outstanding, followed by an ownership of 4.3% by the third-largest shareholder.

机构投资者拥有公司50%以上的股份,因此合在一起可能会强烈影响董事会的决策。对冲基金在eBay的股票不多。Vanguard Group, Inc. 目前是该公司的最大股东,拥有11%的已发行股份。就背景而言,第二大股东持有约8.5%的已发行股份,其次是第三大股东持有4.3%的所有权。

Looking at the shareholder registry, we can see that 50% of the ownership is controlled by the top 21 shareholders, meaning that no single shareholder has a majority interest in the ownership.


While studying institutional ownership for a company can add value to your research, it is also a good practice to research analyst recommendations to get a deeper understand of a stock's expected performance. There are a reasonable number of analysts covering the stock, so it might be useful to find out their aggregate view on the future.


Insider Ownership Of eBay

eBay 的内部所有权

While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders. Company management run the business, but the CEO will answer to the board, even if he or she is a member of it.


I generally consider insider ownership to be a good thing. However, on some occasions it makes it more difficult for other shareholders to hold the board accountable for decisions.


Our information suggests that eBay Inc. insiders own under 1% of the company. It is a very large company, so it would be surprising to see insiders own a large proportion of the company. Though their holding amounts to less than 1%, we can see that board members collectively own US$62m worth of shares (at current prices). In this sort of situation, it can be more interesting to see if those insiders have been buying or selling.

我们的信息表明,eBay Inc. 内部人士拥有该公司不到1%的股份。这是一家非常大的公司,因此看到内部人士拥有该公司的很大一部分股份会令人惊讶。尽管他们的持股量不到1%,但我们可以看到董事会成员共同拥有价值6200万美元的股票(按当前价格计算)。在这种情况下,看看这些内部人士是在买入还是卖出可能会更有趣。

General Public Ownership


The general public-- including retail investors -- own 11% stake in the company, and hence can't easily be ignored. 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:


I find it very interesting to look at who exactly owns a company. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too. Take risks for example - eBay has 1 warning sign we think you should be aware of.

我觉得看看究竟是谁拥有一家公司非常有趣。但是,要真正获得见解,我们也需要考虑其他信息。以风险为例——eBay 有 1 个警告标志 我们认为你应该知道。
