Cathie Wood targets Game Changers
The ARKK fund’s huge gain in 2020 resulted from big stock success stories in cutting-edge tech areas: DNA sequencing, robotics, artificial intelligence, energy storage and blockchain technology.
“Disruptive innovation is often not priced correctly by traditional investment strategies because people may not understand how big the ultimate opportunities are going to be. They aren’t sizing the opportunity and they aren’t analyzing the disruption,” Wood commented on the company’s website.
ARK Invest tickers to watch:
Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase debuted on April 14, pricing at $250 a share. Coinbase stock closed its first day of trading 328.28, up 31.3%, for a valuation of $87.3 billion. Investors should wait for an IPO base to form before jumping into the hot IPO stock.
The new stake in Coinbase represents another one of the Ark Invest stocks that offers more exposure to cryptocurrencies. COIN stock dived nearly 4% Tuesday.
DraftKings is an online betting platform that allows users to play daily fantasy games and win cash prizes. The company is poised to take advantage of the expanding legalization of digital sports betting across the U.S.
DraftKings stock is below its 50-day moving average. It could form a base once the stock can recover from its downtrend. There is no buy point at this time, but a decisive retake of the 50-day line would be bullish for the stock’s prospects.
The sports-betting leader is one of the newest ARK Invest stocks. On March 8, ARK Invest disclosed a new position of 748,000 shares for the ARKK ETF.
Sea says it has both the largest digital entertainment platform and the largest e-commerce operation in the Southeast Asia region, comprised of Indonesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. Its market reach extends to Latin America.
