After successfully acquiring Twitter in a $44 billion deal, Elon Musk has taken to the platform to openly contemplate which companies he should buy in his next spending spree. Musk is the richest person in the world with an estimated fortune of $219 billion.
Musk specifically set his sights on two major companies – McDonald’s and Coca-Cola.
On Wednesday night, Musk tweeted, “Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in.”
Shortly after, Musk shared a satire tweet that read, “Now I’m going to buy McDonald’s and fix all of the ice cream machines…” and replied by saying, “Listen, I can’t do miracles ok.”
Meanwhile, Coca-Cola is at $65.56 per share and has a brand value of approximately $87.6 billion.
In order to buy just one of the companies, Musk would need a lot more cash than he offered to acquire Twitter. While another spending spree is completely possible due to his record wealth, it is highly unlikely we’ll see the billionaire take over another major company in the immediate future… or so we think!
