Gates stays atop Forbes list of America's richest

New York (AP) -- Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates is still America's richest man, taking the top spot in the Forbes 400 list for the 20th straight year, with a net worth of $72 billion.

Investor Warren Buffett, the head of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., remained in second place with $58.5 billion, while Oracle Corp. co-founder Larry Ellison stayed third with $41 billion.

Brothers Charles and David Koch, co-owners of Koch Industries Inc., tied for fourth with $36 billion each.

Forbes said America's super rich continued to increase their wealth during the last year, with the 400 people on the annual list posting a combined net worth of $2 trillion, up from $1.7 trillion a year ago. That marks their highest combined value ever.

Forbes attributed the growth to strong stock and real estate markets.
