Cathie Wood Buys the Coinbase Dip
In the wake of Coinbase (COIN) share prices falling 26% to $53.72 on Wednesday, three funds under Cathie Wood’s Ark Investment Management acquired a combined total of 546,579 COIN, worth approximately $2.94 million at the time.
Deep Value Territory
Following the decline of share prices spanning across disruptive tech companies, Cathie Wood has stated that she believes the shares of blockchain firms to be “seemingly in deep value territory.” She tweeted:
Thank you @freshjiva. Stocks sold off after the tech/telecom bubble because the "dream" would not become reality for 20-25 years. Genomic sequencing, adaptive robotics, energy storage, AI, and blockchain technology are realities, their stocks seemingly in deep value territory. https://t.co/RyhWF8hLLI— Cathie Wood (@CathieDWood) May 12, 2022
Cathie Wood, whose Ark Invest became popular for actively buying shares into beaten-down companies, also oversaw the acquisition 563,322 shares of Velo3D (VLD), a metal 3D printing solutions provider valued at $1.4 million.
On the Flipside
- Ark funds also sold 455,972 shares of digital entertainment company Get Sea Ltd, reportedly valued at $26 million.
