Amazon.com founder and Washington Post owner Jeffrey P. Bezos on Thursday briefly became the richest person in the world, displacing Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Bezos’s rise to No. 1 followed a surge in Amazon.com shares Thursday ahead of the online retailer’s earnings report due out later in the day. The company’s shares have been on a tear over the past year, passing the $1,000 mark and hitting $1,082 around noon on Thursday, propelling Bezos, 53, to $90.6 billion compared with Gates’s $90.1 billion. Gates, 61, who built his fortune through Microsoft, has long been among the world’s richest and had held the top spot since May 2013.

By midday, however, Amazon shares gave up much of the gain, and Gates reclaimed the top spot on Forbes magazine’s.

Bill gave half his money or so to charity, knowing it would take him off the top spot. But still he is back to the top spot again!

Bill Gates has stopped trying to become richer and have been slowly selling off his MSFT stock for a while. That was the reason behind dropping off from the richest man list for few hours.
