She may have had her start in reality television, but trust that Kim Kardashian West is now a business mogul in her own right what with her many ventures that always manages to generate income, whether you love it or hate it.
Someone handling so many businesses at one time certainly knows the value of stock investments, so imagine Kim’s delight when rapper-businessman husband Kanye West gifted her with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stocks which gave her shares in Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX), Disney (DIS), and Adidas (ADS.DE).
Kardashian shared the present she received on her Instagram stories.
“OK, so for one of my Christmas presents from Kanye he gives me this little box with a Disney Mickey toy, Apple headphones, Netflix [and]Amazon gift cards, and Adidas socks, and I’m like, ‘That’s so sweet. Thanks!’ she said in one Instagram video.
In another video, with the caption “best husband alert!,” she revealed what the first gift box really meant.
“But, then I open the next box, and it is stock to Amazon where he got the gift card, stock to Netflix, stock to Apple, hence the little headphones, Adidas stock, and Disney stock.”
In a report that said based on the video clip, Kardashian now owns 920 shares of Disney, valued at approximately $100,000, as well as 995 shares of Adidas, which closed at 169.40 euros, valuing her position at around $199,920 USD.
The report added that it’s unclear the number of shares she held in the tech stocks as the other certificates covered them.
Those three (Netflix, Apple, and Amazon), which are constituents of the so-called “FAANG” stocks, have been on a ride in 2017.
Shares of Netflix have climbed 51% the year, while Apple has propelled 47% and Amazon has surged to 56%.
