Ark Invest’s Cathie Wood on Friday picked up a chunk of shares in legacy automaker General Motors Corp. GM.
What Happened: Ark Invest, through its Ark Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF ARKQ, bought 70,226 shares of GM, valued at about $2.89 million at Friday’s closing price of $41.12.
After being a skeptic of legacy automakers, Wood initiated a position in GM in May by buying 158,187 shares, valued at $6.05 million at that time. As recently as Sept. 20, her firm bought 120,004 GM shares.
With this buy, ARKQ now holds about 252,342 GM shares, valued at $10.03 million. The shares make up 1.09% of the ETF’s portfolio. Tesla Inc TSLA is the top holding of the ETF, with nearly a 9% weighting.
Other Transactions: Friday, Ark Invest divested about one million shares of autonomous trucking company TuSimple Holdings, Inc. TSP, valued at about $2.8 million.
It also sold 370,568 shares of Materialise NV MTLS, a provider of additive manufacturing and medical software, and 3D printing services.
Incidentally, the stock market has been on a two-session rebound since Thursday following the release of tamer-than-expected inflation data, which gave investors hope of an inflection higher.
