I'm not as proficient as you at finding this stuff. Presumably it's on the internet, have you got a couple of links you could post up to show where you get the numbers on say, Lloyds TSB and Jupiter, which I gather have been buying heavily recently.

Glad to help, the pace of growth in II holding Quindell (LON:QPP) is changing daily, hope this helps you with all your investments, its part of my research on my investments, you have to use historical RNS data and Company websites to gain a fuller picture also.

Interesting to see no mention of the Prudential having any holdings at all! Seems strange to me. Maybe they need a nudge, another few million purchases could push the price up a bit more perhaps. Although I have increased my holdings in QPP it is not by millions like these guys can.
This must explain why such a high volume of shares in QPP are traded daily, or is it from the likes of us as investors as well having a good slice of the shares?
Anyway I am waiting for the share price to go above 45p and then it should start to motor upwards to try and catch up with my Plus 500.
Cheers from Lightningtiger

Buying into a company because Institutions have been buying, is one of the weakest reasons you can come up with, as many are followers. If you think Instis do detailed research and have real insights, then you're living in cloud cuckoo land. They're mostly closet trackers, and are more concerned about not deviating too far from the benchmark Index.

My view, is that Quindell is a thinly disguised fraud. It's all about fake whiplash claims, that's where a lot of their profit comes from. Even Cannacord admit that in their research. If you want to invest in something so weak, then go ahead, but accept the consequences.

This will not end well, in my view. The profits are not real, and they will need continuous injections of cash until the Instis realise they've been sold a pup.

Caveat emptor! You have been warned.

Regards, Paul.

I have not bought or would ever suggest anyone buy into Quindell (LON:QPP) on the activity of Funds and institutional investors, I have spent many months and many hours per day researching this company and others that I invest in, this is an indicator of the city liking this story, I am simply as you refer to me a Bulletin Board Moron that has made over £2m profit on Quindell so far it not been a bad company to invest in and many others have made very significant profit also, maybe your judgement is clouded by the massive losses you incurred in this sector!

Of course time will tell. I see Helphire (LON:HHR) have now purchase a law firm, hmmm copying Quindell (LON:QPP) I wonder.

Kind regards

Institutional buying is another box tick - if I recall, Paul was moaning a few months back there was very little institutional holding, which was of course a huge red flag to him.

....that has made over £2m profit on Quindell...

The SP has gained about 30p in it's lifetime and about 20p since you have been posting. So unless you have been selling down all this time then you must have between 6-10m shares which based on your own data makes you somewhere between the top 20 and 30 biggest shareholders - you are missing yourself from your own list!

The one thing I know is that if I had made £2m I wouldn't be pissing my life away on here.

Agreed retired at 44, posting via mobile next to my pool. Pays to keep an eye on your own investments unless you want to suffer the charges of so called professionals.

Good work on the £2m steamy.

Buying into a company because Institutions have been buying, is one of the weakest reasons you can come up with, as many are followers. If you think Instis do detailed research and have real insights, then you're living in cloud cuckoo land. They're mostly closet trackers, and are more concerned about not deviating too far from the benchmark Index.

In general that's true, but there is a lot of alpha in tracking  a few key things in institutional buying.  1.  Big Bets by conviction funds.  2. Increasing institutional herding. 

Looking at Quindell there have been lots of flags across both.   e.g. It's been the highest risk adjusted conviction bet across a lot of funds - like the Premier Ethical fund and quite a few Investec funds. 

This is part of the key drive for the Smart Money add-on to Stockopedia.  Bring some visibility to these kinds of debates.   We are very delayed in the launch due to data issues, but you'll be able to read up on our ideas very soon when we publish the ebook.   See here

No position in QPP currently. However, what sort of research group calls itself Gotham City? Also their website appears to be a WordPress blog with no contact info such as tel, address etc. Yet, the site has the power to halve the mkt cap of a £2Billion company in half an hour.

It will be interesting to see qpp response
For me I tend to think that given all the red flags that have existed that the deals that have been signed recently would have had a lot of due diligence.
It's not like blnx where it's probably one part of your business stream. With qpp they become integral so you would do a lot of due diligence.
As a holder I hope it gets sorted soon
