Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys Over $44 Million Worth of Roku Shares

A couple of the ARK Invest exchange-traded funds run by ETF star Cathie Wood made a sizable purchase on Friday. The fund bought over 125,000 shares of Roku Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU) altogether, as the price of these ETFs were relatively flat on the day. Note that these funds are up significantly in the past year.

Specifically, ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKK) bought 103,098 shares of Roku and ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKX) bought 25,766 shares. At Friday’s closing prices, this would have valued these purchases at roughly $44.1 million altogether. Even though this is a small fraction of the total holdings, every little bit counts.
