Cathie Wood's Ark Invest Sells Coinbase Shares As Bitcoin Hits Yet Another All-Time New High, Buys Stock Of This Social Media Company

On Wednesday, Cathie Wood-led Ark Invest made significant trades involving Coinbase Global Inc COIN and Pinterest Inc PINS.

The Coinbase Trade

Ark Invest decided to offload a substantial number of shares in Coinbase, despite Bitcoin BTC/USD reaching new all-time highs on the same day.

According to the data, Ark Invest sold a total of 10,995 Coinbase shares through its ARK Innovation ETF ARKK, ARK Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW, and Ark Fintech Innovation ETF ARKF. The transaction was valued at $2.8 million. For the day, Coinbase shares closed 1.7% lower at $251.73.

This move comes amid a surge in investments into U.S.-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) associated with Bitcoin, which saw the digital currency soar to a new peak of $73,709 on Wednesday morning. Bitcoin’s surge coincided with a total net inflow into Bitcoin spot ETFs reaching an unprecedented $1.05 billion on March 12.

The Pinterest Trade

On the other hand, Ark Invest increased its stake in Pinterest, buying a total of 34,653 shares through ARKK and ARKF. The transaction amounted to $1.12 million. Pinterest shares closed 0.8% lower at $34.60 on Wednesday.

This move comes as Pinterest continues its efforts to monetize its platform, enlisting the help of Google in a partnership similar to its existing Amazon partnership. Pinterest’s shares surged 53% last year and rose 9.5% since the beginning of 2024, despite a revenue miss that saw its stock falling about 20% after-hours before recovering.
