If You Invest $1000 In Cathie Wood's Ark Innovation ETF, Here's How Much Tesla, Zoom, And 32 Stocks You're Buying

Exchange-traded fund (ETF) investors generally see ETFs as safer investments over individual stocks because of their exposure to numerous stocks, sometimes spanning multiple sectors.

The Cathie Wood-led ARK portfolio made its mark in 2020. Her flagship fund, Ark Innovation ETF (NYSE:ARKK), bet on “disruptive innovation,” which beat massive conglomerates like BlackRock Inc (NYSE:BLK) and others, delivering returns of more than 150%.

Led mostly by Telsa Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), which boomed more than 696% in 2020 — Wood built an almost cult-like following on Reddit’s r/WallStreetBets for her stock-picking skills.

2022, however, has not been so kind to Wood and her various ARK ETFs, take a look.

According to Y-charts, the flagship ARKK fund is down 48.24% this year as compared to the S&P 500 which has crept out of the bear market territory, shedding 15.42% in the same time frame.

In an early-June interview with Bloomberg, Wood blamed inflation and high interest rates for ARKK’s sour performance, saying, “Innovation solves problems, we had a lot of problems during the coronavirus — we were rewarded accordingly. Since then, we’re down 75% – why? Inflation and interest rates.”

Steep declines of pandemic favorites like Tesla, and Zoom Video Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:ZM) which are down 32% and 42% in 2022, — two of ARKK’s largest holdings — are partly to blame for the losses in her portfolio this year.
