Markets rallied nicely on Tuesday, with the Nasdaq leading the charge higher, up more than 2%. ARK funds were also quite positive during the session. ARKF was the best performer of the group, gaining 5.0% on the day, while ARKX was the worst, up 1.5%. The gains of the past year are slowly receding, but Cathie Wood may have something up her sleeve, as she constantly revamps her ETFs to weather market headwinds.
ARK Invest has been the talk of Wall Street over the past two years, outperforming the market and cementing its place among the big players in the investment world. Wood is the founder and chief executive of this investment house, and many have compared her rising star to Warren Buffett.
