北京时间5月17日上午消息,比尔-盖茨再次从卡洛斯·斯利姆手中夺回世界首富头衔,再次成为全球最富有的人。

根据彭博社亿万富豪指数,现年57岁的微软创始人比尔-盖茨15日再次荣登全球富豪榜的榜首。得益于微软股价上扬,盖茨自2007年以来再次获此殊荣。盖茨拥有的财富大约为727亿美元,较一年前增长了16%。

Bill Gates back on top

Bill Gates has reclaimed the title of world’s richest person, for the first time since 2007. His fortune was valued at $US72.7 billion ($74 billion) overnight, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Mr Gates, 57, was more than $US550 million ahead of Mexican Carlos Slim, who has a $US72.1 billion net worth. The co-founder of Microsoft has seen his fortune climb about $US10 billion this year.

The software maker’s shares hit a five-year high of $US34.08 overnight, and have advanced 28 per cent year-to-date.

The company said overnight that US retailers had sold 130,000 Xbox 360 game consoles in April, helping it retain the top-selling spot for the 28th straight month.

Mr Gates’ fortune has also benefited from a rally in stock holdings that include the Canadian National Railway Co and waste-collection company Republic Services.

Most of Mr Gates’ fortune is held through Cascade Investment, a holding entity through which he owns stakes in more than a dozen publicly traded companies and several closely held operations, including Four Seasons hotels and Corbis Corp.

Less than a quarter of Mr Gates’ fortune is held in Microsoft. He’s donated $US28 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Mr Slim’s fortune has dropped more than $US2 billion this year as Mexico’s Congress passed a bill to quash the market dominance of the 73-year-old billionaire’s America Movil SAB.

“When they’re talking about reform in a country that’s generally poor, and the guy shows up No. 1 on the list - not a good thing,” said Greg Lesko, managing director at Deltec Asset Management. “He’s had a pretty good monopoly situation in Mexico, and the Mexican cellphone user has been paying more than he should. We applaud it for the country.”

Earlier this month, a group of kazoo-playing protesters confronted Mr Slim when he appeared at an event at the New York Public Library, denouncing him for overcharging consumers to enrich himself. He denies the accusation.
