Inventory for the Amazon honcho’s firm surged 12 p.c in a matter of 15 minutes Thursday afternoon, which equaled an astounding 11-digit improve to his backside line.
The astronomical math? Bloomberg says Jeff added $13.2 BILLION simply from the surge, which raises his web value to about $129.5 billion. Forbes was a wee bit extra modest, reporting Bezos added $12.eight billion to his portfolio, with a brand new web value of $128.9 billion.
Both approach … ya get the purpose. Invoice Gates appears like a panhandler proper now.
On an excellent grander scale — the inventory increase pushed Amazon’s market cap north of $1 TRILLION!!! That is numerous zeroes.
Oh, and Invoice … JK, buddy. The world’s second-richest man continues to be value about $110.eight billion. Stated one other approach … about one Laurene Powell Jobs (Steve’s widow) lower than Bezos.
