Cathie Wood Sells Another $4.9M In Tesla Stock On Thursday — Buys Shares In Palantir And This Chinese E-Commerce Giant

By Rachit Vats

Cathie Wood’s Ark Investment Management on Thursday booked more profit in Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), selling 4,620 shares — estimated to be worth $4.9 million based on the latest closing price — in the electric vehicle maker.

The Elon Musk-led company’s stock closed 2.15% lower at $1,064.7 a share on Thursday.

Tesla stock posted significant gains on Monday as it reported fourth-quarter delivery volumes that far surpassed expectations; the gains have been since erased. The electric vehicle maker’s shares had advanced about 50% in 2021 and are down 11.3% for the year so far.

Ark Invest owns shares in Tesla via three of its exchange-traded funds — the Ark Innovation ETF (NYSE:ARKK), the Ark Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (NYSE:ARKQ) and the Ark Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSE:ARKW). 

The three ETFs held about 1.61 million shares worth $1.75 billion in Tesla, prior to Thursday’s trade.

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

The St. Petersburg, Florida-based Ark has also been recently loading up shares in the U.S.-listed Chinese electric vehicle maker Xpeng Inc (NYSE:XPEV).

Here are some other key Ark Invest trades from Thursday:

  • Bought 430,339 shares — estimated to be worth $7.2 million — in Palantir Technologies Inc (NYSE:PLTR). The stock closed 1.3% lower at $16.7 a share on Tuesday.
