Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys Over 400,000 Shares of CRISPR

A couple of ARK Invest funds run by ETF star Cathie Wood made a huge buy on Friday. Specifically, these exchange-traded funds bought roughly $40 million worth of CRISPR Therapeutics AG (NASDAQ: CRSP), as the prices of these funds were very mixed on Friday. Note that they are up only slightly in the past year.

ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKG) bought 136,060 shares of CRISPR, and ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKK) bought 268,472 shares. At Friday’s closing prices, this would have valued the sales at roughly $39.9 million altogether. Even though this is a small fraction of their total holdings, every little bit counts. The innovation ETF is up about 12% and the other is up 1% in the past year.
