The stock’s drop came despite stronger-than-expected earnings reported Wednesday.

As for earnings, in the quarter ended Oct. 31, UiPath posted adjusted profit of zero cents per share, beating analysts’ forecast of a 4-cent loss. And it registered revenue of $220.8 million, topping the analyst consensus of $208.3 million.

Last Friday too, Wood went to catch a falling knife. Ark grabbed 746,964 shares of DocuSign  (DOCU) - Get DocuSign, Inc. Report, as the e-signature company plunged on disappointing billing numbers for the latest quarter.

That stash was valued at $100.9 million as of Friday’s close and $106.8 million in recent trading.

DocuSign tanked 42% last Friday and recently traded at $143.15, down 4%. It is down 36% year to date.

ARK Innovation ETF purchased 461,662 shares of DocuSign, ARK Next Generation Internet accounted for 178,334 shares, and Ark Fintech Innovation snatched 106,968, shares.

Morningstar analyst Dan Romanoff thought DocuSign’s drop was overdone, too. He lowered his fair value estimates to $244 from $290 after the company’s weak guidance.
