Jeff Bezos Is the World’s First $200 Billion Man
Jeff Bezos is doing pretty well in the pandemic … he just became the first person to be worth $ 200 billion.
The Amazon honcho saw his net worth reach an incredible milestone on Wednesday, as his company’s shares continue a steady climb that began when the pandemic first hit the United States.
As Amazon’s share price climbed 2.3% on Wednesday to $ 3,423 per share, Bezos’ net worth broke the $ 200 billion mark.
It’s amazing … Jeff himself is worth more than huge brands like McDonald’s, Nike, and Pepsi. These companies are valued between $ 139 billion and $ 191 billion. Chump changes to Bezos.
Jeff is really cleaning up thanks to the coronavirus … Amazon shares have risen more than 100% since March 16, when COVID-19 turned American and global life upside down and steered more people into online shopping.
Bezos puts more distance between him and Bill Gates, who is the second richest man in the world with a net worth of $ 123 billion. Bill looks a bit like a beggar next to Jeff. Sorry, Bill.
Jeff would have crossed the $ 200 billion mark sooner without last year’s $ 137 billion divorce from his ex-wife, MacKenzie … but this feat is definitely better late than never.
Our sincere thanks to
