In this article, we discuss the 10 stocks that Cathie Wood doubled her stakes in 2022. If you want to read about some more stocks that Wood is doubling down on, click Cathie Wood Doubled Her Stakes in These 5 Stocks in 2022.

Cathie Wood of ARK Investment Management has seen her growth-heavy portfolio steadily lose billions in value over the past few months as interest rates rise and batter risky stocks. The portfolio value of her equity holdings has dropped from $33 billion at the end of December 2021 to around $23 billion at the beginning of the second quarter of 2022. During the period, Wood made new purchases in 38 stocks, sold out of 46 firms, made additional purchases in 140 equities, and reduced holdings in 167 stocks.

Some of the top stocks in the ARK portfolio at the end of the first quarter of 2022 included Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Sea Limited (NYSE:SE), and Roblox Corporation (NYSE:RBLX). Despite the beating that ARK Investment Management has taken, Wood has doubled down on her growth bets. At a recent appearance on a webinar, Wood attacked the central bank for being “too aggressive” with a hike in interest rates, noting that the global economy had already gone into a recession, with stock market volatility a sign of investor panic in this regard.

Wood highlighted that there were a lot of indicators of a looming bear market, with investors trying to short innovative firms a prime example. Wood claims that these shorts will be forced to cover their positions. The flagship ARK Innovation ETF of Wood, one of the biggest winners of 2020, is down more than 57% this year. Compared to the highs it touched in February 2021, the fund is down over 70%. Despite the losses, Wood continues to attract investor interest, with her fund drawing over $455 million in net inflows in the first week of May.

Cathie Wood Doubled Her Stakes in These Stocks in 2022

10. Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 96

Percentage Increase in Stake During Q1: 80%

Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ) provides payments services. The firm posted earnings for the first quarter of 2022 on May 5, reporting earnings per share of $0.18, missing market estimates by $0.02. The revenue over the period was $3.9 billion, down over 21% compared to the revenue over the same period last year and missing analyst expectations by $180 million. In the first three months of 2022, the Cash App of the company generated $2.46 billion of revenue and $624 million of gross profit.

On May 6, Truist analyst Andrew Jeffrey maintained a Buy rating on Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ) stock and lowered the price target to $165 from $220, noting the firm was approaching a period of higher investment to expand beyond the current market.

At the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, 96 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $5.9 billion in Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ), compared to 98 in the preceding quarter worth $8.8 billion.

Just like Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Sea Limited (NYSE:SE), and Roblox Corporation (NYSE:RBLX), Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ) is one of the growth stocks on the radar of hedge funds.

In its Q1 2022 investor letter, Farrer Wealth Advisors, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ) (formerly Square): We ‘adopted’ Block’s stock after the company bought Afterpay, which we were investors in. We had been trimming the Afterpay position throughout 2021 and trimmed again after the acquisition, so the position was quite small. We held onto that small portion, as we did think the acquisition made sense and were excited to see the two companies integrate and for Block, Inc. (NYSE:SQ) to create a closed loop network between merchants and consumers. However, the market punished most highly valued tech stocks over the last months, and we saw the position move against us by over 50%. We are firm believers that when a stock goes against you by 50%+, you need to do something about it. Either trim/sell and reinvest or buy more. In the case of Block, the original reason for holding was to see how the acquisition and integration with Afterpay panned out. The market did not give us the time to see this play out, thus we were not comfortable adding more to the position. Further for the stock to recover to our purchase price, we felt the company’s valuation would need to command a future exit multiple that the market would be unlikely to pay in this environment. Given this, we exited the remainder of the position.”
