Coinbase Surge Tempts Wood to Earn Profit From Stock Sale

The trade notification indicates that the sale of 135152 Coinbase shares yielded a $12 million inflow to the ARK. The offload occurred within one of the exchange-traded funds (ETF) identified as the ARKInnovation ETF. Nonetheless, the units sold only constitute 0.14% of the ARK holdings. 


On Tuesday, July 11, the ARK sale coincided with the Coinbase stock price rally to realize $90 from $82. The price would rally further to realize a day’s high of $90.9, per TradingView data. The stock would close the day at $89. A review of TradingView data shows that Coinbase stock has surged by 60% in the past month. The bullish momentum leaves the Coinbase stock with a year-to-date growth surpassing 140%.

The July 11 sale is the second instance that Wood is reaping profits from offloading a portion of the Coinbase stock in 2023. A revisit of the first quarter illustrates that ARK offloaded 160887 shares at $84 per unit from the ARK Fintech Innovation ETF, translating to $13.5 million in earnings. 

Before the second sale from Coinbase holdings, Wood actively accumulated the stock using various ARK funds. A revisit of April and May activities saw the investment firm spend $33 million in acquiring shares. ARK had topped up the holding a month earlier with $117 million worth of shares. The Coinbase shares’ acquisitions in June amounted to $40 million.

Wood’s ARK Replicate Sale Initiated by Coinbase Executives

Wood’s sale of the Coinbase shares replicates the recent moves by various Coinbase executives. Brian Armstrong is leading fellow executives in selling Coinbase shares. On Thursday, June 6, the chief executive offloaded 88058 shares yielding $6.9 million.

Armstrong echoed the move by Coinbase chief accounting executive Jennifer Jones who on June 29 realized $5,2 million from selling 74,375 shares. Consequently, Wood’s decision to sell the Coinbase stock portrays a need to profit from the recent rally.
