The fortune of the head of Tesla exceeded 128 billion dollars. All thanks to Tesla
At yesterday’s trading, shares of Tesla broke another historical record, rising by 6.58% to 521.85 dollars per paper. Thanks to this, the main shareholder of the company and its head, Elon Musk, rose from the third to the second line in the ranking of the world’s richest people, which is calculated by Bloomberg.
Musk is not much ahead of the founder and main shareholder of Microsoft Corporation bill gates, who is now only the third. The first place with a large margin and a fortune of $ 182 billion is held by the richest person on the planet, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
It is important to clarify that we are not talking about living money, but about the market value of Musk’s assets, the most expensive of which is just Tesla. If Musk for some reason decides to sell all his shares in a short time, it will inevitably lead to a sharp drop in their value, so that he will not receive his 128 billion for the securities.
Recall that since the summer of this year, Tesla is the most expensive car company in the world. Now its capitalization is 494.66 billion dollars. In second place is Toyota, the cost of which is almost 2.5 times lower.
