The Interactive Big Whales Report!

A Big Whale is a large investor. We get data of investors who own a large stake (greater than 1%) in listed companies. We accumulate this data, and list the top investors of the lot in the Big Whales Report, with the companies they have invested in, and what they are buying or selling.

We have for you created a curated report on the holdings of 35 Big Whales in the Indian Stock Market. These investors consist of both individual and investment management firms.

What’s New?

Our earlier reports had 20 Individuals and 11 Investment Firms. This time we have added 4 New Big Whales to the report. They include:

  1. Equity Intelligence headed by the Smallcap czar Porinju Veliyath
  2. Multiples Equity headed by Renuka Ramnath – a seasoned entrepreneur
  3. SAIF Partners – helping Asia’s exceptional companies grow from concept to IPO.
  4. The Fundoo Professor Sanjay Bakshii’s ValueQuest India Moat Fund.

We call these investors Big Whales (there is no pun intended with reference to their girth) as a general comparison to whales which are the largest sea creatures. These investors have substantial exposure to the market such that their trades results in stocks getting locked in upper circuits and rallying on their entries and also drop dead when these investors feel the dry growth from the investments.

This is the 7th edition of the Big Whales Report. Unlike the previous editions (PDF) wherein the search functionality was very limited, this web based report allows the user to pivot the information to their liking (You can read more about these here). Remember though that this is not complete or exhaustive – a person may hold less than 1% in a company (in which case his shareholding information is not public) or may have positions in futures, options or other equity related products which we cannot track.

Our View

These shareholding patterns are about six weeks old and things do change over time. But since the Big Whales have such large positions, the very fact that they are adding or removing stocks from their portfolios can give you an indication of what they favor or do not. Typically such individuals have enough wealth to not need to exit stocks for liquidity – it’s usually their need to exit a stock or sector that drives sales. A similar argument can be made for entries as well.
