Cathie Wood’s Ark Increases Tesla Stake with M Stock Purchase During Recovery, Also Boosts Holdings in Online Gaming Platform

Ark Investment Management, led by Cathie Wood, continued to buy Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares on Monday, even though the stock had already rebounded and outperformed the broader market. 

What Happened: Through its two ETFs, Ark Innovation ETF (NYSE:ARKK) and ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSE:ARKW), Ark bought 163,421 Tesla shares, valued at $28.21 million. 

Tesla ended the day up 1.05% to $172.63, while the S&P 500 fell 0.31%, according to Benzinga Pro data. 

This gain came despite a downgrade from Mizuho Securities Vijay Rakesh, who switched the stock from Buy to Neutral due to concerns about the near-term electric vehicle market. Some Tesla bulls, including Gary Black, have also expressed concerns about a potentially weak first-quarter deliveries report.

They’ve been on a Moderna buying spree since March, anticipating upcoming catalysts for the COVID-19 vaccine maker.

  • Roku: 76,893 shares ($4.97 million)
  • Roblox: 740,115 shares ($27.13 million)
