The Wonky Reason the Bezos Divorce Could Shake Up Stock Indexes

Regulatory filings show Jeff Bezos owns almost 79 million shares of the company, worth about $130 billion as of yesterday. If MacKenzie takes a chunk in a settlement -- or either party needs to liquidate their assets to meet divorce expenses -- those could become part of the company’s freely traded stock. In turn, that could boost the company’s weighting in indexes including the S&P 500 -- sending tracker funds on a small Amazon shopping spree.
