Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth jumps $5 billion to start 2017 — faster than any other billionaire

In the first two weeks of 2017, Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth swelled by some $5 billion, a faster gain than rival billionaires, according to Forbes, and enough to recoup the losses that the Facebook founder suffered in the immediate wake Donald Trump’s election win.

The resurgence in net worth comes as higher Facebook revenues and a flurry of mostly bullish analyst reports lift the social media site’s FB, +1.36% shares closer to a test of October’s all-time high above $133. Shares closed Friday at $128.34. Zuckerberg owns 410 million company shares.

Share declines that coincided with the November 8 surprise presidential election win shaved some 7% from Zuckerberg’s Facebook-linked net worth.
