America Movil, S.A.B. de C.V. NYSE:AMX, Amazon.com, Inc. NASDAQ:AMZN - Jeff Bezos Tops Carlos Slim As The Fourth-Richest Person In The World Again

It's a head-to-head race between Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN 9.57%'s Jeff Bezos and America Movil SAB de CV (ADR) AMX 1.29%'s Carlos Slim Helú for the world’s fourth-richest person spot. And it looks like, once again, Bezos is ahead.

Following Amazon's top and bottom line beats, Bezos' net worth ascended to roughly $60 billion. On the other hand, Slim's wealth fell to $55 billion this week, after shares of his company tumbled on an earnings miss, shrinking profit margins in Mexico and declining EBITDA.

While Bezos made about $6 billion on his firm's earnings call, Slim lost about $3.4 billion, which helped the former beat the latter in terms of net wealth. The chart below illustrates the year-and-a-half long race the two billionaires have been running. Bezos' fortune passed Slim's for the first time in November 2015; however, in February, the Mexican businessman displaced him once again.

Another tech entrepreneur who saw his wealth spike recently was Mark Zuckerberg, who made $3.6 billion off Facebook Inc FB 0.73%'s financial results. Zuckerberg is now the eighth-richest person in the world with $51 billion.
