Elon Musk is the richest man in the world! Overcome Jeff Bezos thanks also to the Tesla title

Elon Musk has regained the title of the richest person in the world, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He also surpassed Jeff Bezos, the Amazon captain, so far in first place on the list. His wealth also increased thanks to the surge in Tesla’s shares. The latter in fact closed at 843.03 dollars per share last Friday, with a 3% increase compared to the day. This brought Elon Musk automaker’s year-to-date earnings to around 20%. This too has therefore helped to increase Elon Musk’s net worth which thus reached $ 236 billion, eclipsing the $ 196 billion fortune of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Elon Musk is the richest man in the world

Musk responded to a Twitter user stating that his fortune now stands at 861 billion dogecoins and that is worth more than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined. Tesla’s owner is therefore the richest man on the planet with a net worth increased by $ 60 billion this year alone, driven by the solid performance of its electric cars and a recent sale of shares in SpaceX which brought its valuation to over $ 100 billion.

The aerospace manufacturer is now the second most valuable private company in the world and a SpaceX deal with investors added $ 11 billion to Musk’s wealth, at least according to Bloomberg. Bezos, whose personal wealth is primarily dictated by Amazon shares, has often switched places with Musk in the billionaire index this year, depending on the stock’s performance. And Tesla’s CEO addressed a joke to Bezos last week, responding to a tweet about Amazon’s success with an emoji featuring a silver medal. Elon Musk, told Forbes, that he will send Bezos a real silver medal and a giant statue with the number 2.

Looking at the ranking we find out how the CEO of LVMH, Bernard Arnault, and the co-founder of Microsoft Bill Gates are in third and fourth place, respectively, with net worth of $ 164 billion and $ 130 billion, respectively. The Chief of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett, instead he is now ” alone ” at number 10 with a net worth of $ 103 billion.

Tesla it is expected to report its third quarter earnings on Wednesday of this week. And strong success is expected with Wedbush analyst Dan Ives saying “an evolving wave of green tide” that will push Tesla shares higher despite a short-term chip shortage.
