UPDATE: Jeff Bezos has now sold nearly $3.5 billion in Amazon stock over the past week

CEO has sold off more than 1.7 million shares in recent days

Jeff Bezos has sold nearly $3.5 billion in Amazon.com Inc. stock in the past week, according to new financial filings.

On Tuesday (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/jeff-bezos-just-sold-18-billion-in-amazon-stock-2020-02-04), filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission disclosed that the Amazon founder and CEO had sold 905,456 shares on Friday and Monday for a total of $1.84 billion. According to new SEC (https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1018724/000089924320003505/xslF345X03/doc4.xml)filings (https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1018724/000089924320003503/xslF345X03/doc4.xml) Thursday, Bezos sold an additional 810,912 shares Tuesday and Wednesday for around $1.65 billion. That brings his nearly weeklong total to more than 1.7 million shares sold for about $3.49 billion.

The four-day selloff equates to about 3% of his total Amazon (AMZN) stake.

The sales were pre-arranged, though they coincided with Amazon becoming just the fourth U.S. company to reach $1 trillion in market cap (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/amazon-is-officially-worth-1-trillion-joining-other-tech-titans-2020-02-04)earlier this week. Last Thursday, Amazon blew away fourth-quarter earnings expectations, posting a holiday-season profit of $3.3 billion (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/amazon-earnings-return-to-growth-in-holiday-season-sending-stock-soaring-toward-1-trillion-valuation-2020-01-30)on record quarterly sales of $87.4 billion.

Bezos typically sells off large chunks of his Amazon shares throughout the year, at pre-arranged times. Last August (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/jeff-bezos-has-sold-almost-3-billion-in-amazon-stock-over-the-past-week-2019-08-05), he sold nearly 1.5 million shares for about $2.84 billion, during a time when Amazon stock was suffering its worst losing streak in 13 years.

Bezos is the world's richest individual, by a comfortable margin. His $126 billion fortune is about $9 billion more than the runner-up, Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) co-founder Bill Gates, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index (https://www.bloomberg.com/billionaires/).

In 2018, Bezos said he was putting about a billion dollars a year of his own money (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/jeff-bezos-thinks-his-fortune-is-best-spent-in-space-2018-05-01)into his private space venture, Blue Origin. He and his then-wife, Mackenzie, were also named the country's top philanthropists of 2018 (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/americas-biggest-philanthropists-cut-their-giving-in-half-last-year-2019-02-12), giving $2 billion that year to fight homelessness and improve preschool education.

Amazon shares are up 11% year to date and 27% over the past year, as compared to the S&P 500's gains of 3.6% and 24%, respectively, over those spans.
