Skyrocketing Tesla stock may soon make Elon Musk the richest person in the world
2 days ago - By RT
Tesla CEO Elon Musk may finally get his huge paycheck by mid-spring if shares of the electric carmaker stay stable and the company manages to keep its average market cap above $100 billion.
Tesla stock has rocketed nearly 250 percent in six months and hit a benchmark $100 billion market capitalization for the first time in its history in January. The stock rally even allowed the company to break the $150 billion threshold earlier in February, before the prices settled to around $800 per share on Friday.
