If you want to know who really controls Onewo Inc. (HKG:2602), then you'll have to look at the makeup of its share registry. And the group that holds the biggest piece of the pie are public companies with 56% ownership. In other words, the group stands to gain the most (or lose the most) from their investment into the company.
And last week, public companies endured the biggest losses as the stock fell by 5.5%.
Let's delve deeper into each type of owner of Onewo, beginning with the chart below.
What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About Onewo?
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.
Onewo already has institutions on the share registry. Indeed, they own a respectable stake in the company. 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. 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 Onewo's earnings history below. Of course, the future is what really matters.
Onewo is not owned by hedge funds. The company's largest shareholder is China Vanke Co., Ltd., with ownership of 56%. With such a huge stake in the ownership, we infer that they have significant control of the future of the company. With 1.0% and 1.0% of the shares outstanding respectively, China Asset Management Co. Ltd. and Chengtong Mixed Reform Private Fund Management Co., Ltd. are the second and third largest shareholders.
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. Quite a few analysts cover the stock, so you could look into forecast growth quite easily.
Insider Ownership Of Onewo
The definition of an insider can differ slightly between different countries, but members of the board of directors always count. Management ultimately answers to the board. However, it is not uncommon for managers to be executive board members, especially if they are a founder or the CEO.
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 most recent data indicates that insiders own less than 1% of Onewo Inc.. Keep in mind that it's a big company, and the insiders own HK$8.8m worth of shares. The absolute value might be more important than the proportional share. Arguably, recent buying and selling is just as important to consider.

General Public Ownership
The general public, who are usually individual investors, hold a 37% stake in Onewo. 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.
Public Company Ownership
We can see that public companies hold 56% of the Onewo shares on issue. We can't be certain but it is quite possible this is a strategic stake. The businesses may be similar, or work together.
