Jeff Bezos just added BILLIONS to his massive fortune — which is nothing new for him, but what’s new this time, it only took a few strokes of the clock to make that increase.
Stock for the Amazon CEO’s company surged 12 per cent in a matter of 15 minutes on Thursday afternoon, which equalled an astounding 11-digit increase to his bottom line.
The astronomical math? Bloomberg says Jeff added $13.2 BILLION just from the surge, which raises his net worth to about $129.5 billion.
Forbes was a wee bit more modest, reporting Bezos added $12.8 billion to his portfolio, with a new net worth of $128.9 billion.
Either way, you get the point. Bill Gates feels like a panhandler right now.
On an even grander scale, the stock boost pushed Amazon’s market cap north of $1 TRILLION!!!
That’s a lot of zeroes.
