While reading the comments at the "Why I Own ARK Invest ETFs" at SeekingAlpha I came across some truly "bearish" and even insulting opinions which I tend to dismiss but I got curious about the issue. The Captain's ARK shows these results for the six ARK ETFs:

Ticker 6 M% 3 M% 2 M% 1 M% Company

ARKF 8.8 -14.5 -3.0 -6.9 ARK Fintech Innovation ETF
ARKG 12.0 -25.7 -5.0 -7.8 ARK Genomic Revolution ETF
ARKK 9.2 -26.6 -6.3 -9.2 ARK Innovation ETF
ARKQ 28.4 -15.5 0.4 -4.7 ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF
ARKW 11.1 -21.9 -6.0 -8.9 ARK Next Generation Internet ETF
ARKX n/a n/a n/a -1.8 ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF

ARK is very careful to state that their aim is to achieve better than 15% annual returns which by any measure is great if it is sustained over the long term. Based on the six month returns, the worst performing ETF had over 17.6% CAGR during this "market rotation."

Is it worth adding a one year column to The Captain's ARK?
