Ark Autonomous Technology and Robotics ETF sold 8,599 American depository receipts of Taiwan’s largest company Friday in its first sale of the stock since the end of 2021, Ark Investment Management LLC data compiled by Bloomberg show. The same ETF sold 2,362 shares of Nvidia the same day.

Wood is trimming her holdings in the global chip bellwethers at a time artificial intelligence frenzy intensifies, with Nvidia’s stellar earnings powering global markets to new heights. Nvidia is up 59% year-to-date and TSMC’s US-traded shares have soared 25%.

Wood was one of the most prominent voices predicting AI would be a game-changer. Despite that, She sold Nvidia shares throughout last year, betting on growth potential in less talked about software companies such as UiPath Inc. and Twilio Inc.

Ark funds had purchased shares of TSMC multiple times in 2023. The autonomous ETF, which focuses on companies relevant to industrial innovation, has missed out on the rally that has given Nvidia a near $2 trillion valuation, surpassing Inc. and Alphabet Inc.
