Inflow and performance

The largest Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK) from Woods has dropped by 50% this year due to a decline for technology companies and is down 70% from its February 2021 peak.

Wood has brushed off the declines, claiming that her investment focus is five years. But Ark Innovation has outperformed the S&P 500 in the last five years.

According to Morningstar, the ETF had a total return of 15.5% on April 29, compared to 13.7% for the S&P 500.

According to Bloomberg, investors have apparently not been given up on Wood. Ark Innovation saw an investment inflow of $790 million every year.

Morningstars View

On March 29, Morningstar analyst Robby Greengold issued a sluggish critique of Ark Innovation.

ARKK signs of improving its risk management or the ability to navigate the difficult territory it explores, according to a director.

The strategy, which improved dramatically since its arrival in 2020, has been one of the worst-performing U.S.-sold funds. Woods is a liability because to her instincts to build the portfolio.

In a recent interview with Magnifi Media by Tifin, Wood defended Greengolds. I do know there are individuals like that one [Morningstar] who do not understand what we''re doing, she said.

We do not incorporate into their style boxes. I think style boxes will become a thing of the past, as technology blurs the lines between and among sectors.
