Cathie Wood’s ARK trades Shopify and Block stock, buys Roblox

Cathie Wood’s ARK ETF published their daily trades for Tuesday, May 14th, 2024, revealing a series of significant transactions across various sectors. In a notable move, ARK Invest’s exchange-traded funds (ETFs) executed their largest dollar-value trade by selling shares of Block Inc (NYSE:SQ), a financial services and digital payments company, amounting to a hefty $14,686,615. This sale is part of a recent trend, as ARK has been reducing its position in Block over the past few days.

ARK’s buying activity was led by a substantial investment in Shopify Inc (NYSE:), the e-commerce giant, with a purchase totaling $6,173,898 across three of its funds—ARKK, ARKW, and ARKF. This acquisition continues a pattern of accumulation, indicating ARK’s growing bullish stance on Shopify’s stock.

Another significant buy was Roblox Corp (NYSE:RBLX), a platform for user-generated gaming content, with ARK adding 55,710 shares worth $1,724,781 to its various ETFs. This follows a consistent interest in Roblox, as evidenced by ARK’s purchases over the previous week.

In the biotech space, ARK showed confidence in Intellia Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:), a genome editing company, buying shares totaling $898,037. This move aligns with ARK’s known focus on innovative and disruptive healthcare technologies.

The ARKX ETF, dedicated to space exploration and innovation, increased its stake in Iridium Communications Inc (NASDAQ:), a satellite communications firm, by purchasing 24,234 shares valued at $734,047.

On the sell side, besides the large divestiture from Block, ARK sold shares of Global-E Online Ltd (NASDAQ:GLBE), Kratos Defense (NASDAQ:) and Security Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:KTOS), Verve Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:VERV), and Velo3D Inc (NYSE:NYSE:), with the latter’s sale amounting to a relatively minor $56,528.
