Mffais Sentiment Ranking System

Traditional Institutional Investor Sentiment Analysis:

  • Compares current and previous SEC 13(F) filings (reported institutional holdings) to determine action taken (buy shares, sell shares, no change).
  • Calculates sentiment by amount of change in shares owned, number of institutions owning the stock and holding's total value.
Disadvantages:
  • Unable to compare between stocks (except number of institutions owning - aka most popular).
  • Changes in holding values include two comingled elements: changes in shares (if any) and change in share price.

Mffais's "as-if" Dollar Based Institutional Investor Sentiment Ranking System:

  • Compares current and previous SEC 13(F) filings (reported institutional holdings) to determine action taken (buy shares, sell shares, no change).
  • Calculates sentiment using Mffais Flow: change in shares owned * share price on report date to calculate "as-if" all buys/sells happened then.
Advantages:
  • Removes change in share price element, leaving only amount invested (aka Mffais Flow).
  • Able to compare between stocks using amount invested (aka Mffais Flow) to rank Institutional Sentiment.
