Joy of the Trade’s Jeff Zananiri and I talk a lot about what’s actually moving the stock market behind the scenes. And one of the major fundamentals that’s been driving the market of late are Cathie Wood’s stock picks.
Jeff and I just can’t seem to figure out whether she’s just extremely ballsy, or if she’s one of the most brilliant investors ever. Either way, from what we’ve seen, there’s no inbetween with her.
She is essentially violating every rule that traders religiously follow every day. Cathie Wood’s stock picks aren’t diversified in the slightest, and the stocks carry far too much volatility and risk — in Jeff’s opinion.
And this method of trading could either blow up in her face, or it could turn her into the next Warren Buffett.
There’s no denying that Wood has a brilliant mind and is one heck of a fundamental analyst. Her knack for identifying long-term trends makes her the perfect private equity manager or venture capitalist.
She’s a visionary…
However, she has also got to be one of the worst tactical stock trading fund managers we’ve ever seen in our lives.
What Wood is currently doing with her ETFs could lead to a disaster. And not just for her Ark Investment Management company, but for the entire stock market — and no one’s talking about it.
How Cathie Wood’s Stock Picks Could Derail the Entire Market
The fact that Wood has shares in all of the high-growth and high-beta tech names — while the Nasdaq 100 is up 7% to 8% this year and her fund is down 6% in those names — shows us she’s trying to be a market timer.
And she’s doing a terrible job at it…
First off, it’s near impossible to time the market correctly. Market timing is a strategy in which a trader tries to beat the stock market by predicting where it’ll go, and buy and sell based on these predictions.
The way ETFs work is there is a continuous stream of money flowing into them every day. Smart investors will try to piggy-back off of those institutional flows throughout the month.
But Cathie Wood’s stock picks violate the norm we’re used to seeing in the market. You’ll see her buying out entire blocks of shares from companies within hours — like buying $246 million worth of Coinbase Global Inc. (Nasdaq: COIN).
And her portfolio has been under performing even while her fund has had a nice flow of capital coming into it. The fund has grown from 140 million shares to around 190 million shares this year… and it’s still down…
So what’s going to happen when a mom-and-pop shop opens an account with diversified ETFs with Morgan Stanley, see they’re placed with Ark and notice their account is down 10% while the market is up 5%?

P.S. I’m finally pulling back the curtain on a group of stocks poised for enormous gains this summer…
In case you haven’t heard, three major events might have set off the biggest market triggers we’ve seen in decades!
But the traders who can correctly identify where the money is headed have the chance to collect massive gains on the stocks as they rise.
In fact, I’ve already snagged a 414% winner in one week using this strategy…
And luckily for us, I’m an expert at finding trades like these. So I’m ready to reveal my secret — and the No. 1 stock that’s likely to do it again!
