Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys Over 325,000 More Shares of DraftKings

In the wake of a big buy on Tuesday, a couple of the ARK Invest exchange-traded funds run by ETF star Cathie Wood made additional huge purchases on Wednesday. These funds bought over 325,000 shares of DraftKings Inc. (NASDAQ: DKNG) altogether, as the price of these ETFs lost around 2% on Wednesday. Note that these funds are up handily in the past year.

ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKK) bought 184,805 more shares of DraftKings and ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKW) acquired 158,095 shares. At Wednesday’s closing prices, this would have valued these purchases at roughly $16.6 million altogether. Even though this is a small fraction of the total holdings, every little bit counts. Both funds are up more than 40% in the past 52 weeks.
