A few weeks ago, I marveled over Elon Musk earning $6 Billion on a Friday. Jeff Bezos this week said “hey, someone hold my beer”… and added $13 Billion to his net worth. That was the largest single-day jump on record thus far. Worth more than Amazon.com in 2006. Personally, he could purchase Exxon, or Nike, or McDonald’s.
Jeff Bezos added $13 billion to his net worth on Monday, the largest single-day jump for an individual since the Bloomberg Billionaires Index was created in 2012.

Amazon.com Inc. shares surged 7.9%, the most since December 2018 on rising optimism about web shopping trends, and are now up 73% this year.
