Musk’s fortune rose by $6.07 billion on Friday, Bloomberg News said, following a 10.8% jump in the electric carmaker’s stock. According to the Reuters.
Buffett’s net worth dropped earlier this week when he donated $2.9 billion in Berkshire Hathaway (BRKa.N) stock to charity, the report added. Tesla’s shares have surged 500% over the past year as the company increased sales of its Model 3 sedan.
The blistering rally also puts in reach of a payday potentially worth $1.8 billion, his second jackpot from the billion dollar man “Ellon Musk” electric car maker in about two months.
The stock is up about 38% since the close on July 1, a day before the company reported its quarterly delivery numbers.
Tesla’s solid delivery numbers heightened expectations of a profitable second quarter, which would mark the first time in its history that it would report four consecutive quarters of profit.
