The relation between institutional investors’ trading persistence and stock returns is still not clear. Despite the fact that previous studies have demonstrated the persistence of institutional trading can be short-term positively correlated with following stock returns, some empirical studies show that this short-term positive relation holds only under particular circumstances. Recently, Dasgupta et al. (J Finance 66:635–653, 2011) have even found that the persistence of institutional trading is associated with reversals in stock returns. To fill the gap in the literature, I use a unique monthly institutional ownership data to present new empirical evidence showing that institutional trading not only has a short-term positive impact on stock returns but can also have a long-term negative effect. Moreover, I find that stocks with the lower accumulated growth of institutional ownership tend to have greater momentum than stocks with higher such growth. A zero-investment strategy of buying stocks with ‘LOW’-decile institutional ownership and selling ‘HIGH’-decile ones can outperform the market and generate significant abnormal returns.
