Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Dumps Over 165,000 Shares of Iridium Communications Stock

A couple of ARK Invest exchange-traded funds run by ETF star Cathie Wood made a huge sale on Friday. Specifically, these funds sold over 165,000 shares of Iridium Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: IRDM) altogether, as the prices of these funds were relatively flat on Friday. Note though that the ETFs are up a fair amount in the past year.

ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKQ) sold 150,400 shares and ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKX) sold 17,017 shares of Iridium. At Friday’s closing prices, this would have valued the sales at roughly $7.5 million altogether. Even though this is a small fraction of their total holdings, every little bit counts. The robotics ETF is up about 45% in the past year, but the other one is up only 1% since it came public.
