Cathie Wood's ARKK is worst-performing US equity fund in Q1 2022: Morningstar

Market watchers were taken aback when Cathie Wood’s ??flagship Ark Innovation fund fell 24% in 2021. This year, the widely popular ETF logged an even bigger loss in just the first quarter alone.

According to financial analytics firm Morningstar, Ark Innovation (ARKK) was the worst performing U.S. equity fund in its universe of coverage during the first quarter of 2022. The exchange-traded fund registered a loss of 29.9% in the three months ended March 31, dragged down by a sell-off in high-growth, technology stocks during the period.

U.S. tech funds bore the brunt of declines last quarter at an average loss of 13.7% — the worst quarter since 2018, per Morningstar data. Still, ARKK fared worse than its stylistic peers. By comparison, the QQQ Nasdaq 100 ETF, used as a proxy for tech stocks, was down roughly 9.7% through the same period, and the Russell Midcap Growth Index registered a 12.6% drop.

ARKK was dragged down by sharp losses in some of its biggest holdings: streaming company Roku (ROKU), which represented 6.5% of the fund as of March 30, lost more than 45% for the year-to-date; Zoom Video Communications (ZM), a 6.3% holding, fell more than 40%; and Shopify (SHOP), comprising a 2.7% stake, was down more than 50%, per Morningstar.

Tesla Inc. (TSLA), which at 9.8% makes up ARKK's biggest position, has been a relative outperformer, closing the quarter out only 1% lower year-to-date as of March 31, though holding onto gains from 2021 and masking the performance of some of Ark Innovation's smaller components. The picture could have been much worse without ARKK's stake in Tesla.

Inflationary pressures, subsequent Federal Reserve interest rates increases, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine weighed more broadly on U.S. equities to start the year, but value stocks held up far better than shares of growth companies. The Morningstar US Value Index gained 2.4%, while the Morningstar US Growth Index lost 12.0%, the firm indicated.

On top of its struggling performance, Morningstar last week, citing issues with the fund's risk management and ability to navigate the space it aims to explore.

“The firm favors companies that are often unprofitable and whose stock prices are highly correlated,” Morningstar strategist Robby Greengold . “Rather than gauge the portfolio’s aggregate risk exposures and simulate their effects during a variety of market conditions, the firm uses its past as a guide to the future and views risk almost exclusively through the lens of its bottom-up research into individual companies.”

The top collegiate rodeo athletes in the west coast will compete at the 80th annual Poly Royal Rodeo Finals, held at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 at the on-campus Cotton Rosser Rodeo Complex.

Participants will compete for championship titles in several events, including barrel racing, team, breakaway and tie-down roping, saddle bronc, bareback and bull riding, and steer wrestling.

The event will also feature a concert by country music duo Thompson Square.

The Poly Royal Rodeo is one of the largest on-campus attractions during Cal Poly’s Open House, according to a press release from Cal Poly News. This year’s rodeo will be the first since the pandemic began in 2020, the last rodeo being hosted in 2019.

The first Poly Royal Rodeo was held at the same on-campus rodeo complex in 1942. The event has been held at Spanos Stadium in recent years, but will return to its original location while the stadium is closed for turf replacement.

“It’s exciting to be back at the practice arena and get a super personal feel with the crowds,” Cal Poly rodeo team member and agriculture senior Tyree Cochrane said. “The stadium is amazing and loud and super fun, but there’s nothing better than getting back to our start at the rodeo grounds.”

The first round of competition will take place Friday, April 8, also at the on-campus rodeo complex. Attendance for the first round of competition will be limited, but the finals are open to the public, with tickets on sale now.

ASI will host an additional student night, also at the rodeo complex, at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6, with gates opening at 4:30 p.m.

The Cal Poly rodeo team also worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to ensure 12-year-old Maddie Owens of Winton, California could participate in the competition. She will make an appearance at the Poly Royal as a barrel racer and a special guest of Cal Poly.

Maddie was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer, at age 10. She has since undergone treatment and surgery, and is now preparing for the Poly Royal.

Maddie met the Cal Poly rodeo team in early February for her first training session. She also met Oscar, the horse she will be competing with at the Poly Royal.

Maddie will return to Cal Poly in March, when she and Oscar will be running their first competition together at the Cal Poly rodeo team’s weekly barrel racing jackpot series.

“We had an absolute blast with Maddie,” Sierra Spratt, a Cal Poly rodeo team member and an agricultural education graduate student, said. “At the end of the trip, she gave us yellow bracelets that said ‘#TeamMaddie, Ewing Sarcoma sucks and Jesus heals.’ We’re all still wearing them.”

Gavin Newsom calls omicron’s California arrival ‘predictable,’ encourages COVID vaccinations

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said he wasn’t surprised about the confirmation of California’s first case of the omicron variant of COVID-19, saying officials were able to identify the case due to the state’s “aggressive” testing protocols.

Newsom made the comments while speaking at Frank Sparkes Elementary School in the Merced County community of Winton.

State and San Francisco Department of Public Health officials confirmed the case was a traveler who returned to California from South Africa on Nov. 22.

“This was predicted and it again is not surprising in the state of California because of its sequencing and because of it’s aggressive testing protocols, including by the way, creation of our own state testing lab and the work we continue to do to lean in and not be shy, in terms of being led by science…and mindful that we all need to be humble in the face of these mutations and variants and this disease,” Newsom said.

Officials did not confirm what city or region the case was found in. The person fit in the 18-49 demographic.

The infected person is fully vaccinated and has mild symptoms that are improving, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention release said.

Newsom said the message for his visit was not changed by the news of the omicron variant, saying he was in the central San Joaquin Valley to promote vaccines and boosters.

“North of 60 million Americans have not received that vaccine, life-saving vaccine. Millions here in California still have not received it,” he said. “We’re here to highlight the importance particularly as we enter into the holiday season.”

The rate of people with boosters in Merced County is 19.4%, which is better than the lowest rate in Colusa County (15%) but far below a county like Marin (39.9%), Newsom noted.

Of the 700 partnerships with community-based organizations working to educate people on vaccines, 142 are in the central San Joaquin Valley.

“The longer we live with this virus, the more variation, the more mutations we have to face,” he said. “One thing lacks any real controversy — for those that are of sound mind (and) actually objective — that vaccines are a pathway out of this pandemic.”

The Winton elementary school was the site Wednesday of what is believed to be the first vaccine clinic for children 5 to 11 in the central San Joaquin Valley, according to Merced County Superintendent Steve Tietjen.

Educating students has a significant impact on the future of schoolchildren, he said. “We know that happens best when kids are in school with a caring, devoted, prepared teacher,” he said. “So please get your children vaccinated and keep them in school.”

The San Francisco omicron case was the first of that variant in the United States, which restricted travel from South Africa and eight other nations on Monday as details about the variant emerged from research there.

The World Health Organization previously identified and named omicron a “variant of concern” on Nov. 26.

“We knew that it was just a matter of time before the first case of omicron would be detected in the United States,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading health official, in announcing the case Wednesday at the White House.

To ensure detection and to prevent the spread of the virus and its variant, California is increasing COVID testing spots at airports across the state.

“We recognize that everyone is exhausted, and the news of a new variant can be overwhelming,” the CDPH and San Francisco Department of Public Health said in a joint statement. “It is important that we collectively focus on the things we know prevent the spread of COVID-19, and its variants.”

Health officials are urging people over 5 years of age to get their vaccinations and booster doses. They also advise masking in indoor public spaces, social distancing and staying home if you’re sick.

Why We've Downgraded ARK's Disruptive Innovation Strategy

ARK Disruptive Innovation (ARKK) shows few signs of improving its risk management or ability to successfully navigate the challenging territory it explores. Its Morningstar Analyst Rating drops to Negative from Neutral as its People and Parent ratings both drop to Below Average from Average.

Since its meteoric rise in 2020, the strategy's exchange-traded fund (ETF) has been one of the worst-performing US-sold funds, as the aggressive-growth stocks it held fell back to earth. Its wretched 45.5% loss over the trailing 12 months through February 2022 significantly lagged the 7.9% decline of the average fund in the technology Morningstar Category and the Russell Midcap Growth Index’s 4.3% loss. (The strategy behaves more like a tech fund than its own mid-growth category.)

For UK readers, this is relevant because of the way ARKK has been distributed. London-listed ETFs Leverage Shares offer exposure to the strategy, though it's not clear entirely how many UK investors put money in. Some Europeans also invested directly in the US iteration of the ETF when it was "hot" back in 2020/21.

Manager Cathie Wood has since doubled down on her perilous approach in hopes of a repeat of 2020, when highly volatile growth stocks were in favor. She has saddled the portfolio with greater risk by slashing its number of stocks to 35 from 60 less than a year ago--thereby amplifying stock-specific risk--and growing its aggregate exposure to companies in which ARK Investment Management is a large shareholder. The strategy has effectively become less liquid and more vulnerable to severe losses. Wood runs a variety of exchange-traded funds that often make shared bets on stocks and can’t close to new investors--an option open-end mutual fund rivals can use to preserve their liquidity and investment opportunity set. The firm has no risk-management personnel.

Wood’s reliance on her instincts to construct the portfolio is a liability. This is a high-risk, benchmark-agnostic portfolio that invests across technology platforms the team thinks will revolutionize how sectors across the globe operate. The firm favors companies that are often unprofitable and whose stock prices are highly correlated. Rather than gauge the portfolio’s aggregate risk exposures and simulate their effects during a variety of market conditions, the firm uses its past as a guide to the future and views risk almost exclusively through the lens of its bottom-up research into individual companies.

ARK has in place a poor succession plan for the 66-year-old Wood, who is essential as the firm's majority owner and lone portfolio manager. Director of research Brett Winton would succeed her if needed, but his 15 years of industry experience include none as a manager. Exacerbating that key-person risk is the firm’s inability to develop and retain talent: Many of its analysts have come and gone, and most of the nine remaining lack deep industry experience.

Wood has suggested that risk management lies not with her but with those who invest in ARK’s funds. It’s tough to see why that should be so. ARK could do more to avert severe drawdowns of wealth, and its carelessness on the topic has hurt many investors of late. It could hurt more in the future.
