Wood’s purchases follow Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s sale of nearly $3.6 billion worth of the EV maker’s shares. The billionaire sold 22 million shares of Tesla, according to the filing. The latest sale means that Musk has now sold almost $40 billion worth of the automaker’s stock over the past year.
The share sale comes as Musk-owned Twitter takes extreme measures to cut costs. Musk’s bankers who lent him $13B to buy the platform are reportedly planning to book losses this quarter.
Tesla shares have lost close to 49% since mid-September. The stock has eroded over 19% in the last month itself. Wood’s ARK still seems to hold on to their bullish case. Last week, ARK’s Sam Korus, Director of Technology, Autonomous Technology & Robotics, wrote in a note that if Tesla delivers the Cybertruck with charging power as it disclosed during a recent event, it could reach the EV performance that ARK had projected for 2026 in 2023 — three years ahead of schedule.
In mid-November, ARK had bought over 3,800 shares of Tesla at an estimated valuation of over $700,000.
Major Sale: The Ark Innovation ETF sold over 77,000 shares of Exact Sciences Corp EXAS on Thursday at an estimated valuation of over $3.4 million.
