Cathie Wood just called out the Fed’s biggest blind spot and warns of significant ‘price deflation in the pipeline’ — here are the top 3 stocks she likes right now
It’s no secret that the Federal Reserve is committed to getting inflation back under control.
The central bank raised its benchmark interest rates by 75 basis points last week, marking the third such hike in a row.The central bank raised its benchmark interest rates by 75 basis points last week, marking the third such hike in a row.
Ark Invest’s Cathie Wood points out the potential problem of the Fed’s hawkish stance.
“None of those voting on the Federal Reserve is focused on the significant price deflation in the pipeline,” she tweeted last week. “The Fed seems to be making decisions based on lagging indicators and analogies.”

The super investor also points to the inversion of the yield curve, which can be a leading indicator of an impending recession.
It’s a scary picture, especially since the economy isn’t firing on all cylinders. Real GDP in the U.S. for both Q1 and Q2 showed contractions.
But Wood is sticking to her guns. Here’s a look at the top holdings at her flagship fund Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK).
The electric vehicle maker is currently the largest holding at ARKK, accounting for 10.7% of the fund’s weight.
The stock delivered astronomical gains in 2020 and most of 2021, but has pulled back substantially in 2022.
Year to date, Tesla shares are down nearly 30%.
But business remains on the right track. In Q2, deliveries of the Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y totaled 254,695 vehicles, up 27% year over year.
Ark Invest also sees a game-changing product coming for the company — robotaxi.
“Tesla’s prospective robotaxi business line is a key driver, contributing 60% of expected value and more than half of expected EBITDA in 2026,” wrote Ark analyst Tasha Keeney in a report in April.
In that report, Ark expects a share price of $4,600 (pre-split) for Tesla by 2026. On a split-adjusted basis, that represents a potential upside of around 450% from where the stock sits today.
Zoom Video Communications (ZM)
When meetings and classes moved online due to the pandemic, Zoom’s business flourished.
But as the economy reopened and employees started going back to the office, there have been concerns about the growth potential of this video communications company.
In 2022, Zoom shares have fallen a staggering 60%.
But Wood continues to see opportunity in the stock. In fact, Zoom is currently the second-largest holding at ARKK, accounting for 8.4% of the fund’s weight.
In June, Ark Invest released a research report showing how Zoom shares could see a glorious revival in the not-too-distant future.
“According to ARK’s open-source research and model, Zoom’s share price could approach $1,500, compounding at a 76% annual growth rate, in 2026,” Wood’s team wrote.
Since Zoom shares trade at around $73 a piece right now, that price target implies a potential upside of over 1,900%.
The secular trend of on-demand video streaming has created several winners in the tech space.
Roku is one of them. Since going public in September 2017, the stock has returned more than 120%.
The company’s platform gives users access to streaming services such as Youtube, Netflix and Disney+. Roku also offers its own ad-supported channels featuring licensed third-party content.
The company added 1.8 million active accounts in Q2, bringing its total active accounts to 63.1 million. Revenue rose 18% year-over-year to $764 million.
Although Roku’s business is growing, investors have been bailing in rapid fashion. The stock is down a staggering 82% over the past 12 months.
But Ark Invest is not giving up on Roku. In fact, Roku remains the third-largest holding at ARKK, accounting for 7.0% of the fund’s weight.

(Bloomberg) — US dollar strength has been “devastating to the rest of the world and should come back to bite” the country’s competitiveness and economic activity, eventually “forcing the Fed to pivot” away from its restrictive monetary policy, Ark Investment Management CEO and Founder Cathie Wood said in a series of tweets on Monday.

Anyone following stock market trends in 2022 will be well aware of the widespread drawbacks; apart from some outliers such as energy, most corners of the market have been beaten to a pulp. The main culprits are easily identified by now; a combination of a slowing economy, rampant inflation, rates hikes to halt it, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the global implications are all responsible factors. Stock market giants have not been immune either and many have seen huge chunks of their valuat
Barring selected periods of relief, the inherent trend of the stock market has been resolutely negative in 2022. For investors searching for ways to boost the portfolio’s performance, there have generally been slim pickings. But if you look on the bright side of a market situation where stocks are continuously pushed further down, what you get are some low and enticing entry points.

Earlier this week, the Dow Jones joined the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ in bear market territory. It marks the first time this year that the Dow has dipped below a 20% loss from peak – but it also marks a turning point in investor sentiment. A mood of doom and gloom is setting in. A change in times and a change in mood requires a change in outlook, a shift in perspective, for investors to succeed. With all three main indexes so far down, it’s clear that the last year’s modes of trading aren’t going t
Such has been the force of the cumulative headwinds in 2022 that trying to make headway in this year’s downtrending market has been a struggle for most. A slowing economy, decades-high inflation and the accompanying rate hikes in the attempt to tame it, not to mention Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the impact on energy prices have all played their part in souring sentiment. The result has been widespread share losses. The good news is that those with a strong stomach could use the opportunity
The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates expeditiously to address very high, persistent inflation, and will likely get U.S. short-term borrowing costs to where they need to be by early next year, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans said Wednesday. Most Fed policymakers are penciling in a top Fed policy rate of 4.5% to 4.75% by end of next year, based on their projections published last week, and “by March we will be at that point,” Evans said at an event on current economic conditions hosted by the London School of Economics. Benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury yields rose to their highest level in about 12-1/2 years on Tuesday as investors girded for higher interest rates that could possibly remain for longer than anticipated as Federal Reserve officials held firm in their hawkish stance.
