Form N-Q Advisory - Experimental Feature Here!

We have recently started to include coverage of N-Q filers in our ownership database. N-Q forms are unstructured and difficult for machines to parse into accurate financial data.

However, Because of the large number of these institutions and this difficulty in tracking their positions, they represent a significant, yet hidden, market force. In an effort to widen our ownership coverage and provide greater transparency, we are testing various ways to expose these owners in an accurate manner. This early version of the crawler simply identifies mentions of companies in the N-Q forms.

Limitations:

  • We only list underlying securities (the ordinary shares), even though the actual security held might be a derivative or a related bond issue. For example, although the institution is shown on this security page ( BETR / Amplify Snack Brands, Inc. ), the institution may actually own a related security such as a preferred share or a bond. To find out the exact security, click on the institution link and then follow the link to the actual "N-Q".
  • We only list fund sponsors as institutions, even though the security might be held within a fund operated by the listed institution.. For example, the institution listed in the table as the owner is probably a sponsor of a family of ETFs or mutual funds. If so, then this security is owned by a fund or several funds within the family, and not directly owned by the listed institution. The crawler is not yet able to place these holdings within the individual funds. Atain, you must review the actual filing to see the detail.

These limitations are significant but we believe that the increased transparency outweights the limitations. Future revisions of the crawler will resolve these limitations. Use this information at your own risk!
