Top 40 Billionaires Who Made The Most in 2010

The Forbes‘ list of billionaires is nice if one wants to see who has the highest wealth in the world. However, if one wants to see who made the most money in 2010, then we need to look at the change in wealth during 2010. Insider Monkey, your source for free insider trading data, compiled the list of billionaires and their net worth in 2009 and 2010, and found out the hottest billionaires of 2010. Warren Buffett and Bill Gates couldn’t make the list (see Warren Buffett‘s new stock picks). Here are the top 40 billionaires who made the most in 2010:
