The creative entrepreneur earned $ 6 billion in one day, following the surge in Tesla stock - bypassing Warren Buffett on his way to $ 70.5 billion
Ranked 7th among the world's richest. Elon Musk
Wealthy Trouble: After years of being on the list, entrepreneur and founder of Tesla automotive giant Elon Musk topped US mogul Warren Buffett in Bloomberg's "Rich List" list.
Yesterday (Friday) a huge profit was recorded for Musk's share, after having shot no less than 11%. Only that profit gave Masek, who holds 20% control of his share, about $ 6 billion in his pocket. After that gain, 49-year-old Musk's fortune is estimated at $ 70.5 billion, making him the seventh richest man in the world.
Despite the Corona crisis, 2020 was a very positive year for Tesla, which is owned by Musk, with a 269% increase in profits.
Buffett's 89-year-old fortune fell after donating $ 2.7 billion from the Berkshire Hathaway stock for charity. Buffett, known as the "Oracle of Omaha" because of its owned industries concentrated in Omaha, has contributed about $ 37 billion in shares since 2006. He promised to donate at least half of his personal fortune to charity during his lifetime, and so after his death.
