Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys for 10/27

Although the Dow Jones and S&P 500 pulled back from record levels there was a strong push from big tech that ultimately helped lift the Nasdaq. While there was strength in big tech, it was selective and ARK Funds missed out on it. ARKQ performed the best out of the group, down 1.0% on the day, while ARKF did the worst, down 2.4%. 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.
