Cathie Wood’s flagship exchange-traded fund is down almost 40% this year. Some investors, though, are piling in -- wary of missing out on potential gains should the tide turn in its favor. 

The $11 billion ARK Innovation ETF (ticker ARKK) is on track to see its fifth straight week of inflows totaling roughly $1.3 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Traders have added money to the fund for three consecutive months now, the longest such streak in a year, with a net intake of $965 million for 2022 so far.
