Today, shares of monday.com (NASDAQ:MNDY) stock are in the spotlight after Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest reported buying shares on May 2 and May 3 through one of its exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Essentially, MNDY operates as a collaboration and communication platform for business users.
Shares of MNDY stock have fallen over 58% year-to-date (YTD) in light of the challenging macroeconomic environment, which has been exasperated by rising interest rates and inflation. However, Cathie Wood remains unfazed in her conviction about the company.
Here’s what investors should know about monday.com and Ark’s share purchases moving forward.
Cathie Wood Buys MNDY Stock
Looking forward, monday.com has confirmed that it will report first-quarter earnings on May 16. Accordingly, it seems that Ark Invest believes the company will post impressive results.
On May 2, the Ark Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSEMKT:ARKW) reported purchasing 25,566 shares of MNDY stock. The next day, the same ETF purchased an additional 2,041 shares. Interestingly enough, monday.com was the only company that Ark ETFs transacted with on May 3.
After the purchases, MNDY stock accounts for 1.56% of ARKW, making it the 20th largest position in the ETF. In all Ark ETFs, the company also holds a 0.17% allocation, making it the 78th largest position.
Besides the purchases on May 2 and May 3, the last time Ark Invest purchased shares of MNDY stock was on March 28. On that day, ARKW purchased 43,638 shares.
All told, monday.com does not account for a significant percentage of ARKW. However, it still seems Wood is building up her position before the company’s earnings date. As such, investors should keep their eyes peeled for further buys prior to the results.
