What Is The Ownership Structure Like For Park City Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCYG)?

A look at the shareholders of Park City Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCYG) can tell us which group is most powerful. Generally speaking, as a company grows, institutions will increase their ownership. Conversely, insiders often decrease their ownership over time. I generally like to see some degree of insider ownership, even if only a little. As Nassim Nicholas Taleb said, 'Don’t tell me what you think, tell me what you have in your portfolio. With a market capitalization of US$107m, Park City Group is a small cap stock, so it might not be well known by many institutional investors. In the chart below, we can see that institutions own shares in the company. Let's take a closer look to see what the different types of shareholders can tell us about Park City Group. What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About Park City Group? Institutions typically measure themselves against a benchmark when reporting to their own investors, so they often become more enthusiastic about a stock once it's included in a major index. We would expect most companies to have some institutions on the register, especially if they are growing. Park City Group already has institutions on the share registry. Indeed, they own a respectable stake in the company. 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 Park City Group's earnings history below. Of course, the future is what really matters. Hedge funds don't have many shares in Park City Group. The company's CEO Randall Fields is the largest shareholder with 28% of shares outstanding. With 10% and 5.9% of the shares outstanding respectively, Handelsbanken Asset Management and Rice Hall James & Associates, LLC are the second and third largest shareholders. Our research also brought to light the fact that roughly 52% of the company is controlled by the top 5 shareholders suggesting that these owners wield significant influence on the business. While it makes sense to study institutional ownership data for a company, it also makes sense to study analyst sentiments to know which way the wind is blowing. There is some analyst coverage of the stock, but it could still become more well known, with time. Insider Ownership Of Park City Group While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders. 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. 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. Our most recent data indicates that insiders own a reasonable proportion of Park City Group, Inc.. It has a market capitalization of just US$107m, and insiders have US$38m worth of shares in their own names. This may suggest that the founders still own a lot of shares.

General Public Ownership With a 31% ownership, the general public, mostly comprising of individual investors, have some degree of sway over Park City Group. 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.
