Cathie Wood Continues Booking Profit In Tesla As Stock Shoots Up, Loads Up On These 2 Stocks Instead

Cathie Wood’s Ark Investment Management on Monday sold more shares in Tesla Inc TSLA, starting the new year with more profit booking in the electric vehicle stock as it jumped higher after reporting fourth-quarter delivery volumes that far surpassed expectations. 

The popular asset management firm sold 39,262 shares — estimated to be worth $47 million — in Tesla.

The Elon Musk-led company’s stock soared 13.5% on Monday to close at $1,199.8 a share. The stock rose about 50% in 2021.

Wood’s firm has exposure in Tesla via three of its exchange-traded funds — the Ark Innovation ETF ARKK, the Ark Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF ARKQ and the Ark Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW.

The three ETFs held about 1.75 million shares worth $1.84 billion in Tesla, prior to Monday’s trade. 

Tesla on Sunday smashed fourth-quarter delivery records, posting its biggest quarterly and full-year delivery volume.

A Tesla super-bull, Wood has long favored the Musk-led company and set a $3,000 price target for the electric vehicle stock for 2025.

The St. Petersburg, Florida-based Ark has recently also begun buying shares in the U.S.-listed Chinese electric vehicle maker Xpeng Inc XPEV.
