Another richest man emerges, replaces Bill Gates

Amazon Chief Executive Officers, CEO, Jeff Bezos is now the richest person in the world for the second time.

Amazon stock opened up more than 8% higher than Thursday’s close, adding nearly $7 billion to Bezos’ net worth overnight.

According Forbes, Bezos had a net worth of $89.7 billion, as of the start of trading on Friday.

Bill Gates has a net worth of $90.1 billion, up $550 million from yesterday.

Then by 10:15 a.m. by Friday, Amazon stock had climbed nearly 2% since the market opened, adding $900 million to Bezos’ net worth and putting him in the No. 1 spot with a net worth of $90.6 billion versus Gates’ $90.1 billion at that time.

Amazon stock surged in after-hours trading on Thursday after the company reported strong third quarter earnings.

Amazon reported $43.7 billion in revenue, well above the $42.1 billion analysts expected.

Bezos became the richest person in the world for the first time three months ago as Amazon stock hit an all-time high on July 27, just before Amazon reported its second quarter earnings.

But Bezos’ first time at the top of Forbes’ Real-Time Billionaires List only lasted a few hours.

Bezos first joined the Forbes 400 in 1998, one year after Amazon went public, with a net worth of $1.6 billion.

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be
    running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this
    is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue
    fixed soon. Kudos

  2. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much
    the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!

  3. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the plan of a user in his/her mind that how a
    user can understand it. Therefore that’s why this paragraph is perfect.
    Thanks!

  4. I think what you said made a ton of sense. But,
    what about this? what if you added a little information?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a
    title that makes people desire more? I mean Another richest man emerges, replaces Bill Gates is kinda
    vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they
    create post headlines to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    might bring your posts a little livelier.

  5. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have
    no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  6. Good day I am so happy I found your blog page, I really found you by accident,
    while I was searching on Yahoo for something else,
    Regardless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for
    a incredible post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I
    don’t have time to browse it all at the minute but
    I have saved it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I
    have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the fantastic
    jo.
