Noted investor Cathie Wood, the founder and CEO of investment management firm ARK Invest, is known for investing in companies capable of disruptive innovation. It's not surprising, therefore, that she's been loading up on shares of Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) in 2023. Wood's combined holding of AMD shares across ARK Invest's portfolios of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) has increased from just under 73,000 shares at the beginning of the year to 268,000 shares, as of this writing.

Shares of Arm Holdings (NASDAQ: ARM) have given up most of their IPO gains as investors cool on the company's long-term prospects. While Arm-based chips are dominant in the smartphone, consumer electronics, and embedded markets, Arm's growth will need to be driven by markets where the company has less of a presence. The cloud data center is one such market.
