One of the biggest movers in today’s market is Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD). Unfortunately for investors, that’s because DBD stock has plunged more than 55% in today’s session.
As fellow InvestorPlace contributor William White pointed out in a recent piece, this decline is tied to the release of the company’s annual shareholder letter. In this letter, the company outlined various liquidity concerns that have investors hitting sell today.
Additionally, the company filed a proxy statement ahead of its shareholder meeting. This statement indicates that the company could look to raise its authorized share count in a bid to shore up liquidity.
As a company with close ties to the banking sector, any discussion around liquidity isn’t a good thing. Indeed, over the past week, we’ve seen some rather notable banks collapse. Accordingly, expectations that smaller-cap companies could see a similar fate have shares of DBD stock sinking in today’s session.
With that said, let’s dive into which institutional investors may have the most exposure to this company right now.

That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
