While Quant is gearing up for the open, your Data Miner decided to dig into the Grey Market Reports. I found some interesting information that I wanted to share.
Of the stocks in the S&P 500 Index, Apple is the most widely held based on Long exposure at $394,497,515.89. The second place company is Microsoft with only $169,450,430.68. That's roughly 57% lower than Apple.
Although Apple also has the largest Short exposure at $(521,710,944.73), the stock with smallest (most negative) Net exposure is IBM at $(186,456,941.12).
