MDC says, Can you only imagine you’re good friends with Jeff Bezos, and you had a great day, and you can’t wait to tell him about it. So you email Jeff Bezos at Amazon to share the details, and then you ask him, politely: “Enough about me Jeff, how was your day?”
Jeff doesn’t want to upstage you-;but he can’t help it, if he’s being truthful:
“Not bad,” he’ll say. “I made more than $6 billion in five minutes.”
This is no joke. Amazon’s stock jumped 7.1 percent yesterday afternoon, on the news of its amazing third quarter earnings report.
At 4 p.m., as the market closed, it was trading at $972 a share; five minutes later in after hours trading, it popped to $1,041.15. And since Bezos still owns about 17 percent of Amazon’s common stock, if you do the math-;boom, $6.24 billion.
That puts Bezos’s total net worth at about $83.5 billion, and should return him to the top spot on the list of the world’s richest people .
He wasn’t the only master of the universe to see a giant leap Thursday. Larry Page and Sergei Brin picked up $1.2 billion and $1.15 billion each, after Alphabet’s stock surged on an earnings report. And Bill Gates is worth an extra $340 million based on Microsoft’s jump.
In closing; MDC states that Jeff Bezos of Amazon made as much in 5 minutes ,than Donald Trump claims he’s worth.
