Cathie Wood's ARK Invest Buys for 1/12

Markets edged higher on Wednesday after a somewhat choppy day on Wall Street. ARK Funds saw losses across the board. ARKF performed the best out of the group, with a 0.6% loss on the day, while ARKG did the worst, down 4.1%. The gains from the 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.
