Elon Musk lost over $100 billion in a year – Forbes

The world’s richest man has reportedly shed a third of his wealth since November 2021

Tesla CEO Elon Musk lost more than $100 billion in less than a year, Forbes magazine reported on Friday.

Musk’s fortune has fallen nearly 35%, from $320.3 billion on November 4 last year to $209.4 billion on Thursday, mainly due to a sharp drop in the price of Tesla stock, Forbes explained, citing its calculations. This month alone, Musk’s fortune is down $28 billion, the magazine added.

“He sells high priced cars, so a recession will not be good for his business,” Matt Maley, chief market strategist at investment consultancy Miller Tabak + Co., said in an email to the magazine.

Not to worry, though, he’s still the wealthiest person in the world.
