Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest offloaded more Tesla Inc. TSLA shares on Friday even as it amassed this crypto-linked stock for a second straight day.
Tesla Selling Spree: Ark, through its Ark Innovation ETF ARKK and Ark Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW, sold 27,841 shares of Tesla. The sale would have fetched the fund $7.14 million, based on the $256.60 at which the stock closed on Friday.
On Tuesday, Ark offloaded $8.67 million worth of Tesla, as it took some profit off the table following the stock’s run-up.
For the week, Ark’s cumulative sale of Tesla was at $15.81 million.
Tesla has been volatile in recent sessions after a strong rally led it to an intraday high of $276.99 on Wednesday. The stock has come off this high since then. The downside was in part due to back-to-back downgrades the stock suffered this week.
Ark’s major disposals Friday included:
- Canadian e-commerce retailer Shopify Inc. SHOP: 78,676 shares valued at $5.02 million
- Sports betting company DraftKings Inc. DKNG: 122,556 shares valued at $3.07 million.
