Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Sells for 8/6

Broad markets cruised higher for the most part on Friday for the most part with the Dow and S&P 500 hitting record highs. However, the Nasdaq and tech sector lagged which did not prove to be a good day for ARK funds. ARKX performed the best out of the group, with the exchange-traded fund down 0.6%, while ARKG did the worst, down about 2.2%. 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. Wood is the founder and head of this investment house, and many have compared her rising star to the likes of Warren Buffett.

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.
