Cathie Wood On Why Zoom Will Overtake Old Telecom Infrastructure

Ark Investment Management Founder and CEO Cathie Wood joined Benzinga’s “Raz Report” last week for an lexclusive interview and  shared her takeson several stocks, including Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ: ZM).

Wood On Zoom: Wood said she was impressed with Zoom’s fourth-quarter earnings report. While many stay-at-home stocks peaked in the summer, Zoom is still seeing strong, triple-digit revenue growth.

“Zoom is playing in the largest part of the technology stack out there,” Wood said.

People don’t understand that Zoom is changing the telecommunications industry, the fund manager said. 

“I think it’s going to usurp a lot of the old telco infrastructure.”

The estimates for Zoom are conservative, she said. 

“It’s going to go much higher than that.”

There is negative sentiment around Zoom right now and questions on the price multiple. Wood views the stock as undervalued and said the multiple will look cheap if the company hits the targets Ark has laid out.

“Stay tuned,” Wood said.
