Tesla’s Elon Musk overtakes Facebook’s Zuckerberg to become the world’s 3rd richest | Companies


Musk’s fortune is currently valued at $ 110 billion (R $ 593 billion), after rising $ 82.2 billion (R $ 443.5 billion) this year alone, the biggest gain seen among the 500 richest people in the world, according to “Bloomberg”.

With the shot, Musk exceeded the amount of Mark Zuckerberg, president of Facebook, which occupied the third place in the ranking. Zuckerberg’s fortune is valued at $ 104 billion (R $ 561 billion).

The first place in the ranking of billionaires of “Bloomberg” is occupied by Jeff Bezos, gives Amazon, with US $ 185 billion (R $ 998 billion). Then comes Bill Gates, gives Microsoft, with US $ 129 billion (R $ 696 billion).

This week, Tesla announced that it will join the S&P 500 stock index in December, and the company’s shares soared 12% on Monday (16). With a market value of more than $ 380 billion ($ 2 trillion), Tesla is one of the most valuable companies on Wall Street.

The inclusion of Tesla in the index means that investment funds indexed to the S&P 500 (ETFs) will have to sell around US $ 51 billion (R $ 275.2 billion) in shares of companies that are already in the index to use the money to buy Tesla shares, so that their portfolios correctly reflect the index, said S&P Dow Jones Indices. Tesla will correspond to about 1% of the indicator.

Also this week, SpaceX sent four astronauts to the International Space Station, the first NASA mission to put a crew in orbit aboard a private company spacecraft. “It was quite a ride,” said Dragon Crew astronaut Mike Hopkins, in control of the SpaceX mission about an hour after takeoff. “There were a lot of smiles.”

The Dragon Crew will gradually lift its orbit over the next 27 hours through a series of propellant shots on board, giving astronauts time to enjoy prepackaged dinners and about eight hours of rest before they dock at the International Space Station at 11 pm Eastern Time on Monday.

An air leak caused an unexpected pressure drop in the capsule less than two hours before departure, NASA officials said, but technicians said they had carried out a successful leak check and the planned launch was maintained.

The crew of ‘Resilience’ includes Hopkins and two more NASA astronauts, the pilot of the mission, Victor Glover, and the doctor Shannon Walker. They were also joined by Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi, who had already traveled on the American space shuttle in 2005 and the Russian Soyuz in 2009.
