Elon Musk's Wealth Declines By $15B As Tech Stocks Plunge

The stock market saw an overall plunge on Friday after a discouraging November jobs report coupled with Covid Omicron variant concerns. 

Technology stocks were among the most notable losers on Friday as Tesla Inc TSLA fell 6.4%. 

With that, Tesla CEO Elon Musk's net worth fell by $15.2 billion. That leaves Musk's fortune at $268.9 billion. 

Last month Bloomberg ranked Musk as the wealthiest person in the world. 

Most of Musk's wealth is credited to his stake in Tesla and his holdings in the space transportation services company SpaceX, which Musk founded.

The plunge in technology stocks also led to big losses for other industry titans. Jeff Bezos's net worth dropped by $2.7 billion as shares of Amazon.com Inc AMZN declined 1.4% in New York. 

Oracle Corporation ORCL co-founder Larry Ellison saw his fortune fall $2.6 billion. 

Also, the Meta Platforms Inc FB CEO Mark Zuckerberg's wealth dropped $1.3 billion to $114.7 billion.
