Stock holdings of Tesla recorded impressive gains on the NASDAQ and it is looking good for Tesla Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Elon Musk, whose fortune has gained $31.6 billion in 2021 alone.
What you should know
Elon Musk, now worth $201 billion, has made more gains in 2021 than Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Bernard Arnault, Mark Zuckerberg, and Warren Buffet combined.
- This takes to account that Jeff Bezos is down by $6.86 billion, Bill Gates’s wealth has grown by only about $712 million, and Bernard Arnault – a french-born billionaire’s wealth is down by $2.25 billion in 2021.
- Facebook’s Founder, Mark Zuckerberg has lost about $10 billion in value this year alone, as investors have reduced their stake in Facebook on privacy concerns and Warren Buffet printed a wealth gain of $1.25 billion.
- Elon Musk, who a few weeks ago, surpassed Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest person, is now the first person in modern history to ever surpass a wealth valuation of over $200 billion.
Specifically, the world’s celebrated engineer and philanthropist had led the revolution of electric cars which is showing great potential to replace fossil-based combustion engine-driven vehicles.
- Electric-car maker, Tesla Inc’s share settled at $845 after the close of its most recent trading session.
- Now worth $801 billion, Tesla has increased the concentration of heavyweight companies within the S&P 500.
Today, Tesla builds not only all-electric vehicles, but also infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products. Tesla believes that the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.
Musk’s wealth gain is largely attributed to Tesla, the electric car automaker, which has gained about 700% in 2020 and has become by far the world’s most valuable automaker in the world, despite producing far less than Volkswagen, Toyota, or General Motors.
What to expect
Stock experts anticipate that a Democratic-controlled U.S Senate is bullish for Tesla, on the bias that there would be more pro-renewable investments, at least for the next few years.
Tesla has gained more than 23,900% since its 2010 initial public offering, including a 5-for-1 stock split in 2020.
