The ratio of foreign ownership in the Thai stock market as of June is estimated at 29.9 per cent, valued at Bt5.15 trillion, according to the Securities Exchange of Thailand (SET).

 

SET researcher Sumitra Tangsamavorapong said the ownership ratio is obtained from the corporate action registrar and trading information within the SET.

 

She said up to 50 per cent of ownership is in the banking, energy and utility sectors, as well as IT and communications.

 

“Investors in 114 countries own stocks in Thailand, four more than last year,” she said.

 

The top foreign investors are in Britain, Singapore and the United States, followed by Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland, Mauritius, France, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. 

 

In total they own a combined Bt4.59 trillion worth of stocks in the SET.

It is interesting that foreign investors have sold $5.7 billion more than they have bought since 1995 on the SET and still they own nearly 30%.

Good investors or just normal profits from the market?

And you need baht to buy those stocks, hence foreign investors have been buying baht, yes? So that's where it's been flowing to. Chinese buying the companies, then it's easy enough to gain the upper hand of the economy and enslave (again) Thailand. In the meanwhile, farangs can't even put up a mom&pop shop by themselves.

I guess you missed the part about who the top 3 investors happen to be and it wasn't China.
