Did Bezos Just Drop?! The Recently Declared Richest Man Just Went 2 Spots Behind On Forbes’ List- See The Newest!

After a brief stint as the richest person in the world last week, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has now dropped two spots on Forbes’ real-time billionaire rankings to third place behind Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates and Spanish retail tycoon Amancio Ortega.

Bezos started this week as the world’s second richest person behind Gates, but dropped behind Ortega by the end of the day on Monday. At that point, Bezos had an estimated $84.1 billion fortune, $200 million less than Ortega’s $84.3 billion fortune. Bezos reclaimed second place during the day on Tuesday but dropped to third again when markets closed, with an estimated net worth of $84.6 billion. Amazon stock is down nearly 5% since Thursday, the day it missed quarterly earnings estimates; Bezos’ net worth is down $4.1 billion over the same time period.

Ortega’s net worth, meanwhile, has climbed $1.2 billion since Thursday.
