Elon Musk is about to get a lot more richer on 2022

Elon Musk

It’s been a rough start to 2022 for the world’s richest person (Elon Musk). He’s not too worried, though. Elon Musk’s holdings of Tesla stock have lost about $30 billion this year through Monday’s close, as the stock slid 12%. But the next 12 months could be the most lucrative ever for Musk. If analysts are correct, Tesla will report strong financial results this year that will net Musk billions of dollars in stock awards. Musk doesn’t receive any base salary or cash bonus from Tesla. Instead, he receives stock options based on the company hitting certain financial and market value targets. His 2018 pay package allocated 101 million split-adjusted shares that would be awarded to Musk in 12 equal tranches, as the company hit those benchmarks.

The market value benchmarks have all been achieved, even though Tesla’s recent slide has removed it from the list of companies with a trillion-dollar market cap. And seven of the financial targets have been hit so far, with two being reached in 2019, two more in 2020, and three in the first nine months of 2021. So he’s already received 59 million of the 101 million options in that package.

Analysts expect Tesla to hit the remaining five financial targets this year to give Musk all the options he possibly could get under that 2018 package. If they’re right, he’ll qualify for four of the tranches this year — a record for him — and one more in early 2023 once fourth quarter 2022 results are officially in the books. “With Tesla’s growth trajectory, I’d be surprised if he doesn’t get all five tranches this year based on hitting all the triggers,” said Dan Ives, tech analyst for Wedbush Securities.

Each of the tranches of options would give him the right to purchase 8.4 million shares of stock for the bargain price of $70.01 a share — the price of the stock when the options were first granted in 2018. At Monday’s closing price of $930, that means each tranche of options would be worth $7.3 billion, and all five tranches would total $36.3 billion. He’s very likely to qualify for at least one tranche of options, perhaps two, when Tesla reports fourth-quarter results on Wednesday. He should have at least three tranches in hand once the first-quarter results are reported in April and a fourth tranche by mid-year.

Elon Musk’s big tax bill … in 2027

However many options Musk receives in the next 12 months, he probably won’t have to pay any taxes on them for about five years. That’s because he’ll only have to pay taxes on the options once he exercises the options and buys additional shares. And he’s only likely to do that when the options are about to expire. He did that last year when he exercised 22.9 million options that had been due to expire in August of 2022, leaving him with a record $11 billion tax bill for last year. These latest options won’t expire until January 2028, so he probably won’t exercise them until 2027. He hasn’t yet had to pay taxes on the 59 million options he’s already received as part of that 2018 pay package. And he likely won’t be paying taxes on any of the 42 million additional options he is likely to receive over the course of the next 12 months, no matter how much they are worth.

Sinking stock

The biggest problem for Musk is that Tesla shares are having a particularly bad year. He owns 177.7 million shares, in addition to the options he already holds to buy an additional 59 million shares. That’s the reason for the massive hit to his net worth in 2022. Still, Forbes’ real time billionaire tracker puts Musk’s net worth at $241 billion. Investors have grown worried about riskier tech stocks, such as Tesla, as the Federal Reserve moves to quash inflation with higher rates and less stimulus. Tesla is worth more than the 10 largest automakers in the world despite posting significantly smaller sales than each of them. That makes it the poster child for a stock with a questionable valuation. “As you’re seeing investors heading for the hills on risk, Tesla shares are caught in storm,” said Ives. During a deep sell-off in US stocks on Monday, Tesla shares were down as much as 10% for the day at one point. But they rallied back along with the rest of the market to close down only 1.5%. Still, that was enough to shave $3.3 billion off of Musk’s net worth. Many analysts see the recent slide in Tesla shares as a temporary setback. Tesla shares reversed a similar slide in early 2021 to end the year up 50%. Of analysts surveyed by Refinitiv, 18 have a buy or strong buy recommendation on the shares, compared to 10 with a sell or strong sell recommendation.

Elon Musk

Ives said the recent sell-off in Tesla shares, down 25% since its record high in early November, makes Wednesday’s earnings report particularly important for investors. They’ll want more information about plans to ramp up production at two new factories and when it plans to roll out the Cybertruck, its pickup truck, which will be facing competition from pickups offered by established automakers like Ford (F) and an upstart EV maker, Rivian.

A disappointing report could feed into the sell-off, while a strong earnings report could turn around shares, Ives said. “We think strong Tesla earnings could be a life raft for its shares,” he said.
