Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys for 8/25

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq managed to edge out record highs in Wednesday’s session ahead of the Fed’s Jackson Hole Symposium this weekend. ARK funds more or less tracked with the broad markets. ARKX performed the best out of the group, up 0.6% on the day, while ARKK underperformed the rest of the group, closing relatively flat. 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.
