Cathie Wood-led investment management firm Ark Invest on Friday sold 26,932 shares — estimated to be worth $30.62 million — in Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), booking more profit in the electric vehicle stock as it continues to rise after recently joining the $1 trillion market capitalization club.
Tesla shares, which have risen about 55.8% so far this year, closed 3.71% higher at $1,137.06 a share on Friday.
The St. Petersburg, Florida-based Ark Invest has been booking profit in the stock since early September when shares of the Elon Musk-led company started rising after months of sluggish performance.
Including the latest sale, the popular money managing firm has sold about $2 billion worth of shares in Tesla since the start of September.
