Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys for 10/4

The second trading day of October was marked with a huge sell-off in tech stocks, much of which stemmed from Facebook’s outage. ARK Invest exchange-traded funds got the worst of this sell-off, as they are mostly comprised of tech stocks. ARKQ performed the best out of the group, down 2.1%, while ARKG did the worst, down 4.0% on the day. The gains from past 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.

While some companies would require a subscription service or monetary fee to see what makes ARK Invest tick, here at 24/7 Wall St. we would rather give you the data for free.
