Snap’s stock closed 3.84% higher at $43.3 a share on Tuesday. The stock is down about 7% so far this year and about 23.3% in the past year.

Ark Invest sold shares in Snap via the Ark Next Generation Internet ETF (NYSE:ARKW) on Tuesday. It also owns shares in the company via the Ark Fintech Innovation ETF (NYSE:ARKF).

The two ETFs held 1.35 million shares, worth $56.2 million, in Snap, prior to Tuesday’s trade.

Snap generates nearly all of its revenue from advertising, with 88% coming from the United States.

Ark Investment has also been piling up shares in cryptocurrency-related stocks as the digital assets market remained strained after the Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC)-led selloff in cryptocurrencies last week.
