More than others, the billionaire Warren Buffett lost $ 5.3 billion in a few hours of black Monday. Mark Zuckerberg lost $ 3.6 billion, Jeff Bezos - $ 3.2 billion


Ten of the richest Americans were impoverished on Monday immediately by $ 20.3 billion amid a record-breaking fall in the history of the Dow Jones and other major US stock indices.

The most famous American investor, the head of the company Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett, suffered more than others  . His condition declined for the evening of February 5 to $ 5.3 billion (6%). Nevertheless, with a fortune of $ 84.6 billion, he kept the third line in the ranking of the richest people in the world of Forbes in real time. 

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg lost 4.7% of his fortune during the day. In a few hours, he was impoverished by $ 3.6 billion, shares of Facebook Inc. fell in price by 5%. The current state of Zuckerberg Forbes estimates at $ 73.1 billion, he takes the sixth place in the Forbes ranking.  

The richest man in the world - the head of Amazon Jeff Bezos  - was among the three most affected by the fall of the Dow Jones index. His losses amounted to $ 3.2 billion. These losses "offset" the growth of Bezos's welfare last week, when for one day his fortune increased by $ 3.2 billion against the background of the company's quarterly financial report. 

In general, over the past 4 months - before the "black Monday" on February 5 - Bezos has become richer by $ 28 billion, Amazon shares have grown by 30% over this time.

The state of Bezos is currently estimated at $ 115.7 billion, and it is almost $ 25 billion ahead of the second richest billionaire planet - the founder of Microsoft Bill Gates ($ 90.5 billion). 

The daily losses of Gates from the fall of US stock indices were "modest" compared to other richest American billionaires, $ 1.5 billion. 

The first ten of the richest Americans are also co-founder of Oracle Larry Ellison, former Mayor of New York and founder of Bloomberg agency Michael Bloomberg, head and vice president of the second largest US company Koch Industries brothers Charles Koch and David Koch and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin No. 13).

Of these, only Bloomberg and the Koch brothers came out unscathed from the collapse of the US stock market. The condition of the former mayor of New York remained at $ 51.9 billion (he remains No. 9 in the global ranking of billionaires Forbes), and Charles and David Kochov - $ 48.8 billion (No.10-11 in this rating).

Larry Ellison lost 3.5% of his fortune in a few hours of "black Monday" (overall losses were $ 2.2 billion). Larry Page impoverished by $ 2.3 billion (minus 4.4%). And the state of Sergei Brin decreased by $ 2.2 billion (minus 4.3%).

The state of Ellison currently equals $ 58.8 billion, he has kept # 8 in the ranking of the world's richest billionaires Forbes. Page's condition fell to $ 49.5 billion (No. 12), and the state of Bryn - to $ 48.1 billion. 

Following the results of Monday, February 5, the main US stock indices collapsed by 3.8-4.6% against expectations of a decrease in the yield of US bonds. The fall in the indices of the Dow Jones and S & P 500 canceled thus the entire growth of shares for 2018.

The Dow Jones index fell below the mark of 25,000 points. In the course of trading, he dropped more than 1500 points. The decrease at the end of the day was 1175 points (minus 4.6%) - this is the maximum drop in the history of the index.

The S & P 500 index fell by 4.1%, to 2648.96 points, Nasdaq - by 3.78%, to 6967.53 points.
