It seems to me that he invests a lot in stocks that sometimes have had it. I don't follow her, I think she's buying unnecessarily shaky stocks.

Agreed, some of the purchases seem completely illogical to me.

It's definitely one to watch, it's not a primary source for me, and I don't invest in Ark (because the risk part is even riskier) but I definitely pay attention when I find out that a company I'm interested in is investing and take that as one of the plus points. Otherwise, I think Ark are high risk but the chances of them going to their new ATH in a few years is more than 50% in my opinion and look at how many percent that is from today's price. No recommendation, just an opinion 🚀/⚰️

As long as there is no prospect of low interest rates these companies will still suffer quite a bit I think.

ARK's philosophy is based on going out on a limb picking gamechanging companies before it's obvious if they will succeed. Whether these companies succeed rather than fail is not, I think, influenced much by economic cycles but rather by how they manage to get their disruptive technologies into production and widespread use. About two years ago, there were a lot of promising companies that ARCs invested in that fell victim to general FOMO and subsequent decline. You can see this in ARK's charts which are basically averages of these promising companies. However, I think their selection is good, obviously continuously corrected, and so their chances of success are high. Some, if successful, will grow not by tens of percentages but by hundreds or even thousands. Of course, the chance of failure is also great. That's why Cathie was once fired by "serious" financiers with this plan and so she founded ARK. Whether her plan is right remains to be seen. So far the funds have only gone through one rise followed by a fall. Of course the chart is crazy compared to other ETFs, but this is just a fund that can go up as fast as it went down, I guess. It's for the person who wants to take risks with potentially disruptive technologies where one company out of ten succeeds and doesn't want to or can't bother with a thorough selection of individual companies. Then he relies on Cathy to pick them and hold the ones that succeed and get rid of the ones that look like they won't. How good will she be at this? It remains to be seen. It is impossible to conclude from this slump that ARK suffered, but from which they are recovering well in 2023. It has affected the entire sector from which ARK is collecting.

Not particularly. Sometimes I register her big purchases, but that's more just me wondering if she's going to bend somehow with the price. Otherwise, in general, I'll look at different people in the investment world for inspiration, but then I always tell myself if it's for me or not anyway. 😁

Yeah, that's a good Journey, too.

Yeah so I believe so and what I know the community here, I think we like to get inspired, talk to investors, share opinions and so on but everybody and I always advise everybody has their own head and they have to take responsibility for their money. For example, I will admit that I have a few stocks based on Buffett, but if something happened and it went to shit, I'm not going to call him stupid, but I'm going to take responsibility myself. And I think that's how everybody should approach it. 😊

Occasionally I read something in her investing, but I don't follow it

👍

I think I once had a discussion with a Cathie Wood supporter here. Nothing against anything, but her strategy is not for me either.

Not for me either...

I don't know what the general opinion is, but it is clear to me that this is a road to hell. The speculative path is never a long-term one.

I agree, it feels like shots fired into the unknown.
