Musk's wealth still exceeds that of Arnault, chairman of LVMH, by approximately $33 billion.

Musk was not the only tech billionaire in the United States having a rough day. Inc's. Jeff Bezos, Prophet Corp's. Larry Ellison, previous Microsoft Corp President Steve Ballmer, Meta Stages Inc's Imprint Zuckerberg and Letter set Inc prime supporters Larry Page and Sergey Brin shed an aggregate $20.8 billion in total assets as the tech-weighty Nasdaq 100 fell 2.3%.

Portions of Austin-based Tesla slid 9.7% to $262.90 in New York, the most since April 20, after the organization cautioned of additional hits to its as of now contracting productivity.

Arnault, 74, has seen his total assets ascend by $39 billion this year to $201.2 billion. Portions of Paris-based LVMH have acquired 26% in 2023.
