There are few institutional investors who are willing to take risks on high growth stocks because of the price volatility and the nature of the business where innovation rules the day. However, Cathie Wood, the chief of ARK Investment Management, has become one of the few on Wall Street who seem to have mastered the art of using investments as a tool for change and making handsome returns in the process. Wood manages over $53 billion in assets at her hedge fund with the top 10 holdings comprising 35% of the portfolio.

These holdings are concentrated in high-growth domains like technology and healthcare. This is also one reason why Wood has become a champion of retail investors, an increasingly important market force in recent months, who also prefer investments similar to those made by Wood. In 2020, the flagship ARK Innovation ETF of Wood returned more than 152% to investors. Though the value of the ETF has hit some roadblocks in recent weeks, Wood has refused to back down from her strategy, instead doubling down on growth-related investments.

Some of the top holdings in the investment portfolio of ARK Investment Management at the end of the second quarter of 2021 were Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA), Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), Square, Inc. (NYSE: SQ), Roku, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU), and Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP), among others. Wood founded ARK Investment Management in 2014 after a long career in finance. Her fund has now become one of the most elite ones in the US. The success of Wood is an exception in the wider finance world that is reeling from tech-enabled disruption.

In its Q1 2021 investor letter, Polen Capital, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and LendingTree, Inc. (NASDAQ: TREE) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“We also exited our position in LendingTree. LendingTree is a two-sided marketplace in the consumer financial services vertical that connects borrowers with lenders. The company has built a brand over more than 15 years that offers savings to borrowers by having banks compete. The company had been acquired by IAC before the financial crisis and then was spun out in the worst of the global financial crisis (GFC). The company had a resurgence following the GFC by adding value in the mortgage market. The company used the strong cash flow generation in the model to expand into adjacencies and diversify the revenue base. The product offering has expanded over the years mostly through acquisition and includes credit cards, personal loans, and insurance. This diversified strategy had paid dividends amid demand shocks, like the decline in demand for mortgages 18 months ago and then the demand destruction caused by the pandemic. However, diversification has some downsides. While it protects the company from major demand destruction shocks, in our opinion, it has made it hard to drive consistent long-term compounding as products have come in and out of favor due to macro factors. While we think that LendingTree has solved a unique problem, we do not believe it has the same compounding potential going forward and have exited the position in accordance with our process.”
