    Increasing your net worth 150% in one year is pretty amazing. Increasing it by $1.4 billion is even more so.

    He owns a good bit of Apple stock, I'd think, and that's shot up quite a bit this year. Oh yeah, and it's close to 50%, but not 150%.

    The buyout has only been announced. It will not happen until later this year, which means it has no effect on Steve's current rank. It will play a role in his rank next year.

    He is worth 150% of what he was worth last year, or 50% more than last year. just a matter of how you look at it. Means the same thing though.

    Your statement is true, but the post he was correcting is not. It is either "150% of" or "50% more," but not "Increasing your net worth 150%," which is what Oryan's post said.
