Jeff Bezos Is Now Worth More Than Bill Gates Ever Was

Jeff Bezos Is Now Worth More Than Bill Gates Ever Was”

According to Bloomberg's billionaire tracker, Amazon's net worth reached $105.1 billion on Monday courtesy of a 6.6 percent rise in Amazon.com shares. Shares of Amazon (AMZN) climbed 1.4% Monday, adding about $1.4 billion to his net worth. For example, he made roughly $1.4 billion in gains Monday when Amazon stock climbed almost 1.5%. Most of Bezos' wealth comes from his Amazon holdings, tying his net worth to market fluctuations. He lost the title later in the day when Amazon's stock dropped, returning him to second place with a net worth just below $90 billion. The Amazon CEO officially became the first member of the $100 billion club in November, as shares in the company rose significantly during a typically lucrative holiday season. Bezos also owns Blue Origin, a travel business that intends to take tourists to explore space and the Washington Post newspaper. But Forbes reports that Gates' net worth crossed above $100 billion briefly back in April 1999.

Still, of those individuals whose wealth is publicly traceable, Bezos is the richest person alive.
