. Elon Musk’s fortune surges $36 billion in only one day after Hertz’s Tesla order « JO LEE MAGAZINE

National Post – Elon Musk’s personal fortune jumped by US$36.2 billion Monday after Hertz Global Holdings Inc. placed an order for 100,000 Teslas and filings showed a fresh tranche of options in his moonshot pay package vested.

It’s the biggest one-day gain in the history of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, eclipsing Chinese tycoon Zhong Shanshan’s US$32 billion surge last year when his bottled-water company, Nongfu Spring Co., went public. Musk’s net worth of US$288.6 billion is now greater than the market value of Exxon Mobil Corp. or Nike Inc.
