ARK Invest profits from Coinbase stock investment.

Ark Invest, led by Cathie Wood, has sold 149,780 Coinbase shares, worth $24.2 million, as the stock reached new yearly highs. This includes 132,782 shares, worth $21.5 million, from their Innovation ETF and 16,998 shares, worth $2.7 million, from their Next Generation Internet ETF.

The sale is part of Ark Invest’s strategy to rebalance their fund weightings due to the surge in COIN’s price. They have sold over $200 million worth of Coinbase stock in the past month. This move aligns with the expectation of a Bitcoin ETF approval by the SEC before January 10, 2024. The recent selling could be seen as a profit-taking strategy.
