Cathie Wood Says Burry Doesn’t Get Fundamentals of Innovation


Cathie Wood has responded to Monday’s news that famed investor Michael Burry has placed bets against her firm’s flagship fund.

In a Twitter thread on Tuesday, Wood laid out the thinking behind Ark Investment Management’s approach and called out Burry directly.

He made a “great call” in the mortgage market, she said, but she doesn’t believe he understands the fundamentals that are creating “explosive growth and investment opportunities” in the innovation space.

Burry was made famous after his successful bets against mortgage securities during the financial crisis were portrayed in “The Big Short” movie. Wood’s public rebuke followed the revelation in a quarterly filing that Burry’s Scion Asset Management owned bearish put contracts against 235,500 shares of the ARK Innovation ETF (ticker ARKK) at the end of the second quarter.
