The Dow Jones industrials and S&P 500 continued to lose ground on Wednesday, making a three-day losing streak for these major averages. ARK Invest funds followed suit with sizable losses across the board. ARKX performed the best out of the group, down 1.1% on the day, while ARKK underperformed the rest of the group, down 2.8%. 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.
