Spaceport America and Richard Branson are taxing one of the poorest counties in New Mexico to finance their billionaires playground in the middle of nowhere. I’ll pass on this one.

I need to start an ETF.... any fool can put together a collection of losers and get paid to babysit it while it collapses. Look at the ARKK, it's a basketcase and no one calls this lady out.

That said, even a stable full of dog ex-momentum stocks has it day, and ARKK is getting set to be the best short squeeze play very soon.

ARKK sucks
They hoodwinked a bunch of millenial dumb money to buy in at the top.
The average investor in ARKK has lost money .
ARK performance is due to Tesla call. And, they seem irrational in their continued bullishness of Musk. I have to question all their investment decisions. Much success up to this point, but they are going further and further out on the ledge. We have seen this before, with tech mutual fund in the late 90s. On the cover of every business magazine, buying heavily into increasingly risky markets, then pop. FoMO creates very bad hangovers.

I'll wait to see if republicans recover control of our national purse strings in 2022 before I invest in space exploration and space tech.

Democrat control of our government is hostile toward funding for space exploration and space tech, and would rather flush trillions of dollars down the cash drain of socialist programs and environmentalist hysteria.

I suspect Cathie Wood has been completely unable to recognize this dismal truth.

When Biden took office, this ETF was doomed.

I own ARKX and VTI mainly because I'm a little bit Country and a little bit RocknRoll. Btw, VTI's expense ratio is 0.03%, not 0.09%. You may have been thinking of SPY which I also own.

@budcorona Fellow owner of both ARKX and VTI. Two funds that are absolutely perfect in a Roth IRA and a 15+ year horizon.

Thanks for the Q Catduck, I choose to invest in a fairly concentrated portfolio and only update quarterly at most, I think this suits my own investment strategy and goals. ARKX is definitely on the watch list but no trade for now!

Why is the author not invested in ARKX if they believe in it?
