According to the “Forbes” real-time billionaire list, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Elon Musk’s net worth exceeded $100 billion on Friday , ranking fifth in the list, due to the fact that electric car manufacturers Sla’s stock price has soared 400% this year.
Most of Musk’s wealth comes from a 21% stake in Tesla. Tesla went public in 2010 at a price of US$17 per share, and rose 3.5% in early trading on Friday to a record high of US$2318.49.
Tesla overtook Toyota Motor Corporation on July 1 to become the world’s most valuable automaker, and has made many retail investors millionaires in the past 10 years.
Today, Musk has become an elite club with a twelve-figure net worth. However, his nearly $100 billion net worth is only half of the world’s richest man and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos (Jeff Bezos).
Currently, the top six on the Forbes real-time billionaire list are Amazon CEO Bezos, Bill Gates (Bill Gates), LVMH Group Chairman Bernard Arnault and his family, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Elliot Zuckerberg), Musk and Warren Buffett (Warren Buffett).
