The portfolio value of ARK Investment Management, the New York-based hedge fund led by trailblazing investor Cathie Wood, has decreased by about $12 billion in the third quarter of 2021, according to the latest 13F filings. The growth-heavy portfolio, featuring many healthcare and technology stocks, has taken a beating in the past few weeks as inflation concerns spark an exodus towards value plays. Wood has doubled down on her bets on growth stocks during this period, dismissing predictions of an economic slowdown.

In a recent tweet posted in response to billionaire Elon Musk admitting “strong inflationary pressure”, Wood said that COVID-related supply chain bottlenecks and oil supply constraints were leading to inflation, reminding her followers that deflationary forces associated with artificial intelligence, electric vehicles, robotics, genomic sequencing, and blockchain technology would likely act in opposition to these pressures. Wood was one of the most successful investors of 2020 and her market observations have garnered a lot of interest among analysts.

Wood is also very famous among retail investors since her investing strategy aligns closely with the disruptive ideas of these young enthusiasts. Citing the spending habits of these investors, a great deal of whom are strong believers in the “sharing economy”, and evidence of a mass exodus from expensive cities to cheaper ones across the United States, Wood has outlined that commodity prices will fall in 2022 and innovation will keep inflation at bay over the long-term. Wood had previously announced that she will be shifting her fund to Florida from New York.

As ARK Investment Management invests in firms like Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Coinbase Global, Inc. (NASDAQ:COIN), and Teladoc Health, Inc. (NYSE:TDOC), among others discussed in detail below, Wood had predicted that Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency, will rise to $500,000 in value within the next five years. The price of Bitcoin is presently around $60,000. The investor cited institutional buying and wider international acceptance as some of the reasons behind her bullish view on the new technology.

Wood garnered a lot of fame in the finance world last year when her flagship ARK Innovation ETF returned over 152% to investors. It is quite incredible that Wood has managed to build a portfolio worth tens of billions by focusing on investments in biotech, traditionally considered a highly risk investment domain due to the nature of the industry where the fortunes of even the biggest firms are usually tied to one or two products and where research and development eats up a major chunk of the budget.

The latest 13F filings of ARK Investment Management reveal that the company has increased stakes and made new purchases in several growth equities that are trading at under $10 per share over the past few months. To accommodate for this, Wood has been selling shares in bigger pharma firms like Bristol-Myers Squibb and AbbVie as well as EV maker Tesla. Overall, the fund has bought stakes in 50 new firms compared to the filings for the second quarter and sold out of 36 stocks between June and September.
