Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys for 9/29

Wednesday night futures were green after a somewhat mixed day on Wall Street. Tech stocks were mixed overall but semiconductors took a hit. ARK Funds didn’t fare any better and each saw losses on the day. ARKX performed the best out of the group, down 0.5%, while ARKK did the worst, down 2.2% on the day. 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.
