Ching! Ching! According to @cbsnews, Elon Musk is now the richest man in the world.
The site reports, “Thursday’s increase in Tesla’s share price pushed Musk past Jeff Bezos, who had been the richest person since 2017 and is currently worth about $184 billion.”
Musk’s car company hit $750B for the first time on Wednesday. Tesla is now worth more than Toyota, Volkswagen, Hyundai, GM and Ford combined, BBC.com reports.
When someone mentioned his newly found status on Twitter, Musk responded, “how strange”.
Just last year, Jeff Bezos was crowned the world’s first person to amass a $200 billion fortune.
The founder and CEO of Amazon had a worth of a jaw-dropping $204.6 billion—which is nearly $90 billion more than the world’s second-richest person, Bill Gates, whose own net-worth sits at $116.1 billion.
Also, a few months ago, the Amazon business owner set a new record and made $13B in one day. His net worth is now an estimated $189.3 billion. Jeff had the largest net increase, since Bloomberg started tracking the richest people in 2012.
Jeff experienced the major increase in his net worth after Amazon stock surged during the day, thanks to a positive Wall Street forecast, according to CNBC. Based on reports, Amazon shares increased by 8% after an analyst from Goldman Sachs raised his price target for the e-commerce company.
Jeff’s wealth is tied to his more than 57 million shares of Amazon stock. Naturally when the company’s stock spiked so did his net worth, which essentially means Jeff is well on his way to become the world’s first billionaire
Speaking of making the coinz! Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg could become a trillionaire. As previously reported, his current growth rate is on pace to make him a trillionaire by 2036. He will be 51 years old.
