What is an Investor in Amazon.com Stock Holding?
One of the most compelling arguments in favor of Amazon is that Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, was one of the original shareholders of Amazon. To be fair, Bezos is not actually an investor. He simply gets the bulk of the money and shares of a Amazon.com stock company – but still, a number of people wonder how this is possible. In fact, I’ve seen some technical analysis that suggests that Jeff Bezos may be the only shareholder of Amazon.com.
If you look at the total capital of Amazon.com Stock Company, the corporation is privately held by the Bezos family. The company is a private, unlisted company that operates on the internet. Since the company is privately held, the information regarding the stock company is kept under wraps by the government.
So in simple math equation form, if the company is privately held, then Jeff Bezos is not technically an investor. However, he is the largest shareholder, making up almost half of the stock company. As such, there are only a few restrictions on what investors can do with Amazon.com stock.
There are no specific rules or restrictions on how much money one can buy or sell from the company. Therefore, it would seem as though Jeff Bezos would be free to do whatever he wanted. However, when one considers that the stock company’s shares are held in escrow, the effect is that anyone wanting to buy stock from the company has to purchase stock from someone who holds stock in the company.
In this case, Jeff Bezos would be selling stock to other investors, who would be buying stock from him. However, since he owns so much stock, he’s probably getting a good deal. This means that investors can get a better deal on their Amazon.com stock, which is worth a lot, than they could get by purchasing stocks directly from the corporation.
There are, however, restrictions on the amount of stock that can be bought and sold. For example, a person who wishes to buy five million shares from the corporation has to put down an amount equal to five million dollars. This figure must remain in escrow until such time as the stock reaches this figure.
So Jeff Bezos can’t just go out and buy as much stock as he wants. A number of people who have been looking into investing in Amazon.com stock are shocked to find that they can’t spend as much as they want, yet Jeff Bezos is able to purchase as much as he wants.
There is one restriction to this, though – because of the regulation, investors who want to get the maximum amount of money are told to pay attention to the quarterly reports for the company. If the company does very well, it will likely get its shares valued higher than they were previously.
