In the past month, it has been found that individual investors have bought over 2 trillion won of Samsung Electronics, the KOSPI president.
According to the Korea Exchange, individuals net bought KRW 2.143 trillion worth of Samsung Electronics in the securities market from August 3 to September 1.
During the same period, foreigners and institutions net sold Samsung Electronics worth KRW 8784 billion and KRW 1.15 trillion, respectively.
In particular, on August 31, when foreigners threw a'sell bomb' worth KRW 543.2 billion of Samsung Electronics stocks in one day, individuals faced this and net bought KRW 5536 billion.
Individuals have continued their net buying trend for 10 consecutive days from August 19th.
This is the longest record since an individual net bought Samsung Electronics on the 13th (March 5-23) last March, when the stock market fluctuated by the Corona 19 shock.
Due to the recent uncertainty in the semiconductor industry, Samsung Electronics' share price has fallen below the market rate.
Based on the closing price, the KOSPI rose 61.19% from the bottom of March this year to the 1st.
During the same period, the share price of Samsung Electronics rose only 27.53%.
Kim Dong-won, a researcher at KB Securities, diagnosed that "Dram spot prices started to drop from early April, causing uncertainty in performance."
However, even in the process of selling by foreigners and institutions, the share price of Samsung Electronics did not drop significantly as ants actively bought out.
Stock prices moved from 54,000 won to 59,000 won per month.
There is also a prospect that semiconductor stock prices, including Samsung Electronics, may rise if uncertainty over the semiconductor industry is lifted.
Researcher Dongwon Kim said, "Dram spot prices, which have continued to decline since the beginning of April, have continued a slight rebound from the bottom of August 24. Looking at the price trend over the past 10 years, the spot price of DRAM is a leading indicator of fixed prices. It worked," he explained.
In addition, he predicted that "semiconductor makers' stock prices will gradually upward from August, considering that the full-scale rebound of the stock prices of semiconductor makers took place on average six months before the conversion of DRAM fixed prices."
