ARK Invest has been one of the most popular themes of late in the markets, outperforming many other funds and solidifying its place among the big players in the investments world. Practically all of these exchange-traded funds have more than doubled since this time last year, and this incredible performance has been on the back of Cathie Wood’s stock picking.
Cathie Wood is the founder and head of this investment house, and many have compared her rising star to the likes of Warren Buffett. Unlike Buffett, though, Wood has been primarily focused on the tech sector and its explosive growth over the past few years.
The ARK Invest fund family includes ARK Fintech Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKF), ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKG), ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKK), ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKQ), ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKW) and Ark Space Exploration & Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKX).
24/7 Wall St. has looked over each of the ARK Invest ETFs and we have highlighted the top holdings in each of the funds. Although each fund has a different direction, some stocks span these themes.
Perhaps the biggest theme across these funds has been Tesla, which comes in as no surprise to anyone who has been following Wood over the past few years. More recently, Wood issued a call on Tesla suggesting that the price could reach upward of $3,000 per share — about four times the current share price. Making this big of a bet on Tesla has definitely paid off, and investors seem to be in agreement.
