This is kind of interesting. You know how Cathie Wood always goes on and on about how she outperforms because of “innovation“?

Well, here is the boring old SPDR® S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY) compared with her hot-to-trot fund, ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (NYSE:ARKG), over the past eight years. The same $1 put into SPY and ARKG would be almost exactly the same profits eight years later.

the s&p is better because it is well diversified and owning its etf will result in very low expense ratio. also u would be down by a lot if u bought arkg on the high lol

90 percent of the stock move in the same directional as SP500.  When someone tell you to diversify buying basket of stock, this is very risky when you run into Covid19 or 2008 or any medium size correction you are not achieve any diversify at all.  The best way to do it is to diversify your model.  Maybe having one account buy and hold index, another doing short term both long and short.  At least your capital is protected!!!!
