Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest Buys for 8/4 - 24/7 Wall St.

Futures edged higher Wednesday evening despite a mixed trading day. Some analysts believe this is in regards to optimism for the coming jobless claims report Thursday morning and even the July Employment report on Friday. Cathie Wood’s ARK funds were fairly positive on Wednesday signaling optimism in the tech sector going forward. ARKK performed the best out of the group, up 2.6% on the day, while ARKX lagged the rest of the group, down 0.7%. The gains from last 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.
