Why isn’t there an ETF of stocks our congressional representatives and members of the executive branch hold or have relations with?

Seems like a no brainer. Halliburton when Chaney was VP comes to mind.

take my money!

I am reminded of paraphrasing an old axium, a bull market can make anyone look like a genius...

got utterly destroyed when that type of stock fell out favor

Legendary fund manager goes from penthouse to outhouse

Kenneth Heebner ranked as America’s No. 1 stock picker before losing his touch and most of his main fund’s assets. The 71-year-old manager, at the bottom of his peer group for the fourth year in five, hasn’t lost his swagger.

Heebner, whose CGM Focus Fund (CGMFX) topped all diversified U.S. stock mutual funds in the decade through 2007, lost an annual average of 6.3 percent in the five years through June 26, trailing 96 percent of the same group, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. CGM Focus has been in the bottom 6 percent of the large-cap growth category every year since 2008, with the exception of 2010, when it beat 66 percent of peers.

all high beta stocks are story stocks -- ALWAYS have great stories

high beta as a sector = epic booms and busts - the 'rockstar' of the day is just the manager that takes the most risk - they always pay the price on the downside

it's a great sector for multi-decade investing -- add on the crashes, cut back when the things go stupid high

ARK Innovation Falls 23% In Two Weeks

It’s been another bad week for investors in ARK exchange-traded funds. The flagship and largest of the seven—the $21 billion ARK Innovation (ARKK)—is down 25% from its peak on Feb. 12. It dropped 20% in just 12 trading days

.....Morningstar vice president of research John Rekenthaler.......“These are highly aggressive, high-beta stocks.”

the 'flagship' fund down approx 29 percent over last 15 trading days

from here, it will have to increase approx 50 percent to recoup the losses

ARKX to begin trading tomorrow. (Nutz... I am completely tied up in PSLV at the moment.) Probably going to be a rocket ride before the price settles down to something reasonable (if that even exists anymore in this market).

Buying this SPAC today, highly likely it will be included in ARKX.
Since it's trading just above $10 SPAC floor, there is very little risk and could get a big pop when ARKX goes live.

OK, so I decided to eat my PSLV loss on 50% of my position in order to go into ARKX this morning. If there is a decent pop I might roll some of it back into PSLV since silver is getting crushed. I still believe the silver short will have to unwind with enough demand for delivery.

BTW... I SUCK at market timing. Economics is completely counterintuitive, and fundamentals mean nothing in this market. DYODD.

Cathie Wood really seems to know how to pull money in to help prop up her old investments. Seems like there was a name for that type of system. :ponder:

How much Tesla will ArkX buy? Just 5% of the assets, 10%, or more? I'll bet 10%.

No Tesla in ARKX.
But one of largest positions in ARKX is PRNT, her 3d printing etf, so your point is on target.
TSLA likely to miss on deliveries this quarter, reporting soon.

Tesla would actually make some sense. Although, I guess Tesla owns nothing of Space X other than some name recognition.

Yeah, no ownership. SpaceX do share talent, engineering and materials, for example the specific steel alloy designed for SpaceX rockets is used in Cybertruck.
One of the 3D printing companies actually does make parts for Spacex.

Basically in Europe automakers pay a penalty if they don't make enough "clean" cars, according to whatever bureaucratic standards they set. Don't want to make electric cars? Pay somebody else to make electric cars.
FIAT-Chrysler is the primary source of those regulatory credits for Tesla, maybe under $2B for 2020, while total revenue was over $30B (rising at close to 30% a year), so it's not insignificant, but also not make-or-break issue for Tesla. Will be less and less important over time.
The way I figure, "hey, you want to pay me $2B a year to build factories because you don't want to invest in new tech? show me the money"

Also worth noting that most other automakers get $7500 federal credit for electric vehicles in US, which Tesla has not gotten for some time - though that may change under Bidet's infrastructure plan.

So, everybody still on board with this lady? I hope not. Her ties to the Hedge Fund that blew up, Bill Hwang, as he helped her seed the ETF's. Then after watching someone like UTube "star" Meet Kevin all over in a weird worship of her I am even more worried.

Very weird trading today and I think (just complete speculation) but it seems to center on this lady and her funds. The DOW is up huge and the Nasdaq is down big. ARKK is down 4+% and every one of the largest holdings is starting to tank. I think there are problems here, be very careful.

Ooff ta. If she really was in the "know" she'd have been selling some of her stocks. If TSLA tanks this is going to be really ugly.

Tesla is around $1015... More than 15% off the $1200+ highs. But still hasn't filled the gap up at $900 after last quarters earnings.

as expected -- cathie wood is the new ken heebner

utter destruction in less than a year - the 'flagship' fund has been cut in half while the market has risen in same time frame
