Cathie Wood, founder of Ark Invest, yesterday sat down with CNBC's SqawkTalk to talk about the Tesla Cybertruck. Tesla, which is the top holding in several of Ark's funds, has Elon Musk as its CEO, and it's natural the anchor wanted to know about what Wood's thoughts were on the Cybertruck, as well as on other matters such as the defamation trial where Elon was found not guilty
