Cathie Wood's ARK Invests Buys for 5/17

ARK investors had a slow start to the week—along with the broad markets—sliding on Monday. ARKG performed the best out of the group with the ETF down 0.2%, while ARKW did the worst down around to 1.1%. The gains from last year are slowly sliding away, but Cathie Wood may have something up her sleeve as she is constantly reshuffling her ETFs to stand up to market headwinds.

ARK Invest has been the talk of Wall Street over the past couple of years, outperforming the market and solidifying its place among the big players in the investments world.

Many traders are looking to mirror the plays of famous investors and huge brokerage firms to capitalize on the gains that the big dogs are making. Lucky for us, ARK Invest releases a list of its trades at the end of each trading day.
