It Ain’t Interest Rates – It’s the Elections Stupid!

Jeff Bezos of Amazon loses about $80 million for every dollar the stock goes down.  No billionaire was hit as hard by the drop this week in the share market than Jeff Bezos. During the Wednesday selloff alone, the Amazon founder and CEO lost more than $9 billion. This is how they measure people’s worth by the value of shares they hold which is NOT cash. If he ever tried to sell everything, the share price would also crash. At the peak, his net worth reached $160 billion, according to Forbes.

 

The Bloomberg Billionaires Index shows Bezos total net worth is $145 billion, comfortably ahead of Bill Gates, who sits second at $96.3 billion. Gates lost more than $2 billion, while Warren Buffett lost nearly $4.5 billion. When we look at the Arrays, the week coming up as a key target has nothing to do with interest rates – it’s the elections STUPID!
