Jeff Bezos, Amazon Chief Executive Officers, CEO, has recently emerged as the richest person on the planet for the second time.

Amazon stock miraculously opened up more than 8% higher than Thursday’s close, adding nearly $7 billion to Bezos’ net worth overnight.

According Forbes, Bezos had a net worth of $89.7 billion, as of the start of trading on Friday.

Bill Gates currently has a net worth of $90.1 billion.

Amazon stock had climbed nearly 2% since the market opened, adding $900 million to Bezos’ net worth and putting him in the No. 1 spot with a net worth of $90.6 billion versus Gates’ $90.1 billion at that time.

Bezos debuted as the richest person in the world three months ago as Amazon stock hit an all-time high on July 27, just before Amazon reported its second quarter earnings.
