Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest Capitalizes on Tesla’s Decline, Purchases Exciting M Worth of Shares Prior to Q1 Results—Zoom Stocks Offloaded

On Monday, Cathie Wood-led Ark Invest made significant trades involving Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Zoom Video Communications Inc (NASDAQ:ZM).

The Tesla Trade

Ark Invest purchased a total of 122,752 shares of Tesla across its ARK Innovation ETF (NYSE:ARKK), ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (BATS:ARKQ), and ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSE:ARKW). The Ark trade was valued at $17.44 million. Tesla shares closed 3.4% lower at $142.05 for the day.

Tesla shares have fallen over 40% since the year began and over a longer 12-year period they have declined more than 12%.

Significantly, this purchase comes on the eve of Tesla’s first-quarter financial results announcement. Analysts expect Tesla to report first-quarter revenue of $22.34 billion, a slight decrease from the $23.33 billion reported in the same quarter of the previous year. This move by Ark Invest could be seen as a vote of confidence in the EV manufacturer, despite the cautious stance of analysts.

The Zoom Trade

Conversely, Ark Invest sold a total of 334,290 shares of Zoom Video Communications across its ARKK and ARKW ETFs. The value of the Zoom shares sold on April 22, based on the closing price of $59.54, is approximately $19.9 million.
