This paper is an extension of our previous research done for National Stock Exchange of India on the determinants of corporate performance. It looks at the managerial (investment) implications of the above study. We conclude that investors should avoid investing in stocks wherein dispersed Retail Investors and/or Domestic Financial Institutions hold a large amount of stock, since, good monitoring by these stakeholders is not visible in our study. In other words, one should prefer those stocks in which owner-managers having good management record have invested more of their time and money and also hold a larger stake in the firm. In addition, care should be taken to see that one avoids investing in firms wherein owners having highly diversified interests are avoided.
