Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys for 8/30

Markets pushed higher to start out the week and the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Dow Jones industrial average are each looking at a fairly positive August as well. ARK funds have had a fairly positive August with some notching gains as much as 6%, and investors are waiting to see how they close out the month on Tuesday. ARKX performed the best out of the group, up 1.3% on the day, while ARKG underperformed the rest of the group, up 0.1%. 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. 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.
