Jeff Bezos Now Worth Over $105Billion As Amazon Hits High

The newly minted richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, is now the wealthiest person of all-time after his fortune soared to new heights.

On Monday, shares in Amazon hit an all-time high, which lifted Bezos’ net worth to a record $105.1billion, according to Bloomberg.

That figure eclipses the $100billion worth that Microsoft boss Bill Gates amassed back in April 1999.

Shares of Amazon hit an all-time high on Monday, which lifted Bezos’ net worth to a record $105.1billion

In the last 12 months, Amazon’s stock has climbed by nearly 57 per cent.

So far in 2018, the e-commerce giant’s shares have jumped 6.6 per cent.

Over the recent holiday period, Amazon continued its dominance, grabbing 89 per cent of the online spending market among retailers.

Bezos’ peak net worth is more than that of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder who crossed the $93billion mark this week.

According to Bloomberg, Gates could easily be worth over $150billion were it not for the hundreds of millions of shares in Microsoft as well as the billions in cash and other assets he has given away to charity.

Aside from Amazon, Bezos is also the owner of The Washington Post.

As of Tuesday, just before noon, shares of Amazon were trading at $1,247.91.

  1. A court has ruled that the building is illegal, and the €57 million ($64 million) Chateau Diter will now have to be knocked down.
    Property developer Pierre Diter, who owns the chateau in the town of Grasse, in Southern France, has 18 months to raze the building and faces a fine of €200,000 ($226,000), Pierre-Jean Gaury, attorney general at the court of appeal in Aix-en-Provence, told CNN.
    “Patrick Diter was accused of having executed important works on a land without authorization,” said Gaury.

  2. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.

  3. Ryska militarfartyg kommer till Filippinerna samtidigt som spanningen okar kring Sydkinesiska sjon. Men framfor allt expanderar nu Kina langt us i Stilla havet. Det vacker oro i USA eftersom Kina anses hota de amerikanska ubatar som ar helt avgorande vid en konflikt.
