Last Wednesday Amazon’s capitalization for the first time reached 900 billion dollars. This allowed the corporation to join the race for the title of the world’s first trillion-dollar company. Earlier, experts predicted that such an honor will be awarded to Apple.
The capitalization of the “apple” corporation is about $ 940 billion, and it is still the first candidate for a “trillion” company. At the same time, Amazon is gaining momentum much faster: if this year the capitalization of Apple grew by 13%, then Amazon – by as much as 58%.
Also recently it became known that the founder and head of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, was recognized as the man with the greatest fortune since the introduction of the Bloomberg rating (1982). His wealth is estimated at $ 150 billion.
