She coulda taken 1% and still walked away with over a billion lol.

All the stuff i read before this gave me a 50/50 vibe so i'm surprised she settled for 25%. Guess Jeff did way more work later on?
Either way seems she's fine with only getting ~$35 billion

Don't think this'll affect the stock price much unless she decides to start dumping her shares.

Owning stocks really takes you to weird places. Its a strange feeling to feel happy that Bezos divorce is amicable and he's only giving up 25%. Its probably good for the stock price...

Hi guys, miss me. Just kidding, I know no one misses me.
it's been a while ride down and up. I managed to pick up around 10 more shares of AMZN on the way down.

@crazycoward, someone dumping massive amount of Amazon shares will affect the price in the short term. I doubt the affect will last for a whole year though.
Anyways, people are way too focus on the short term prospect of any company, and lose sight of things that really matter.

Again, turn off your TV, and stop visiting stock discussion websites and you will do fine. If you don't like AMZN, then just buy BRK.B. If you don't like BRK.B, then just buy VOO.
Buy and sit there for 10+ years and see what happens. You will be amazed at how much your life is better off without worrying about this stock going up/down tomorrow.

Yeah, AMZN did well, but MSFT did better.


Edit: To be fair, your AMZN is still down around 2% from the time you switched your relative's portfolio. After the switch, the only stocks that's down are BRK.B and AMZN. As a result, you helped your relatives earned ~6% during this time period. Since you didn't switch and remained invested in AMZN 100%, you are down about 2% from September 2018 to now.

Come visit us when AMZN is up another 50% lol.

Almost back to where I bought in at! Of course wishing I bought more at $1600 now. Amazon is going to run the world.

CollegeGraduate must be very happy right now that Amazon is back to $2,000.
A great recovery.

I own some Amazon too, just not as crazy as him. That must be some nerve of steel.
