Retail FX success story Plus500 (LON:PLUS) continues to court the attention of large international financial institutions, the latest development being depicted in today’s filing by the company that JP Morgan Chase & Co has crossed the 15% mark in its shareholding of the company, which became a publicly listed entity recently after a very high value IPO.
In addition to JP Morgan’s continued interest in acquiring incrementally higher stakeholdings, Odey Asset Management now holds above 10% share in Plus500. These two institutions alone now own more than 25% of the company.
The optimistic outlook from industry experts has been backed up by Plus500’s stock having had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by research analysts at Liberum Capital in a report released on Tuesday.
Liberum Capital currently has a GBX 750 ($12.77) price objective on the stock, which in turn serves to indicate a potential upside of 68.01% from the stock’s previous close.
