an email update from the investment management firm showed.

The leading technology investor has ditched 46,414 shares, worth an estimated $41.5 million, in the electric-vehicle giant just days after taking a profit with a $200 million disposal. She had signaled at a conference last month that she would be willing to sell down her flagship fund’s stake in Tesla (ticker: TSLA), according to reports.

ARK’s flagship fund, the

ARK Innovation ETF
(ARKK), produced total returns of 152% last year but is down 3.93% year to date, according to FactSet. It has a 10.72% stake in Elon Musk’s Tesla, its biggest holding.

Tesla’s shares were trading up 1.1% to $903.99 on Friday. The stock set an all-time high of $910 earlier in the session. It has risen 115% over the past 12 months.

The ARK daily email disclosure also revealed the firm has bought 2.1 million shares in Skillz, worth an estimated $20.8 million. Skillz rose 2.42% to $10.18 on Friday.

Last year, the technology company went public through a blank-check firm. It was set up to allow users to compete with each other on their mobile telephones. Various third-party games applications can be loaded for a price from the Skillz platform, and it takes a cut from those sales.

Wood’s ARK Invest didn’t respond to requests for comment.
