Update: Jeff Bezos, 2nd Richest Man in the World

Sneeze...and you missed it.

But just wait..it's a moving target, so his name will float back up.

 

-----------------------

 

"For half a day, Jeff Bezos was the richest man in the world, then the bottom fell out from under Amazon.com Inc.’s stock. Easy come, easy go.

 

Shares of the e-commerce giant AMZN, -0.65% that Bezos founded surged as much as 2.9% to an all-time intraday high of $1,083.31, propelling Bezos’s worth past Microsoft’s Bill Gates become the world’s richest person, according to both the Bloomberg Billionaires Index and Forbes’s real-time ranking of the world’s billionaires.

 

That rally gave Bezos a net worth approaching $91 billion, versus a little over $90 billion for Gates, according to Forbes.

 

Then just after noon ET, the Amazon’s stock reversed course, tracking the broader market’s pullback from record highs. The stock was down 0.7% in afternoon trade. After the close, Amazon is scheduled to report second-quarter results.

 

That brought Bezos worth back down to about $88.5 billion, below Gates worth of about $89.7 billion, according to Forbes."
