Institutional ownership of AVX Corporation
Given the considerable sums of money that institutions invest, it is not surprising that they tend to be much more knowledgeable than the average investor when it comes to the companies and industries in which they have invested.
Institutional portfolio managers often meet personally with a company's top executives, and in many cases the research they conduct is further supported by equity analysts who evaluate prospective companies and industries in great depth before making specific investment recommendations.
