Cathie Wood-led ARK Investment Management added to its stake in Disney (DIS), as its theme parks reopen fully and ahead of the long-anticipated theater debut of Marvel’s “Black Widow.” Disney stock dipped.
ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (ARKW) on July 6 added 108,653 shares of the media and entertainment conglomerate to its holdings.
That brings its total holdings in Disney stock to 260,134 shares worth $45.18 million. ARKW first opened its position on May 14, when it bought 150,556 shares worth $26.15 million.
Still, Disney stock accounts for just 0.73% of ARKW’s holdings, a minuscule amount vs. top holding Tesla (TSLA) (9.9%), Shopify (SHOP) (5.5%) and Twitter (TWTR) (5.2%).
ARKW also owns 115,270 Netflix (NFLX) shares worth $62.43 million. Netflix accounts for just over 1% of holdings.
Meanwhile, “Black Widow” is set to hit theaters on July 9. The blockbuster movie will also be available on Disney+ on the same day through Premier Access for an extra $29.99 one-time fee.
Subscriber growth at Disney+, which largely helped shore up revenue losses during the pandemic, has reportedly slowed sharply in recent months, as consumers head out more and spend elsewhere on travel and entertainment.
