Ark Invest ETF, the top-performing tech fund of the past year, recently released its latest holdings. The fund picked up 497,100 shares of Palantir Technologies (PLTR), increasing its stake to 1.93 million shares.
The ETF has picked up a number of interested traders and investors, given the fund’s incredible performance in 2020, led by the fund’s largest holdings in companies such as Tesla Motors (TSLA) and Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC).
Ark has an excellent long-term track record, but last year’s shoot-out-the-lights performance has turned the long-running fund into an overnight sensation. The fund’s purchase of big data giant Palantir may add to its returns.
- Man Who Predicted 2008 Crash: “The Mother of All Crashes is Coming”
If you've watched the movie The Big Short,you've heard of Michael Burry. He was one of the few who no only predicated the 2008 crash but profited from it.
He made $750 million for his investors and $100 million personally when his bet against the housing market paid off. His next big prediction?
He's warning the "mother of all crashes" is coming.
If you have any money in the markets, I urge you to click here and get the exact day of the next stock market crash.
Palantir shares have been in a holding pattern for nearly two months now, trading in the mid-$20 range. While the news of the Ark buy gave shares a pop, they still haven’t closed over $28, a key closing price for shares to move higher. With technical indicators moving out of overbought territory, the stock has now had a long pause to move higher.
Action to take: The May 2021 $30 calls are a reasonable bet. If shares break higher, they may jump much higher after hitting the old highs in the low $30 range. That could easily move this option trade in-the-money.
Last trading for about $5.25, it’s less expensive than owning shares, but if shares continue in their sideways pattern, the option does stand the risk of gradually losing its value over time.
