Jeff Bezos has about 5 crore shares of Amazon Inc. The prices of Amazon shares are increasing rapidly. According to Bloomberg, his plan is to sell these shares gradually within a year. The money coming from this sale can again make him the richest person in the world.
Bezos' wealth increased by 13 billion dollars this week
This revelation came when Amazon has recorded its best online sales since the Covid pandemic. Due to this, the company's shares have jumped by almost 8 percent to reach the rate of $172. Due to the rise in shares, Jeff Bezos's wealth increased by $ 13 billion on Friday. Now he is 5.7 billion dollars behind Elon Musk, who is at number one in the list of the richest.

The decline in Tesla shares continues
A completely different trend is being seen in the shares of Tesla and Amazon. On one hand, Amazon's shares are moving upwards, while on the other hand, Tesla's shares are in a downward trend. Tesla has been receiving bad news one after the other for some time now. This has also had a negative impact on the company's stock.
