Bezos, Page and Brin just made $8 billion

Bezos, Page and Brin just made $8 billion

From time to time, it's especially good to be Jeff Bezos.

The Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN)CEO made another massive paper gain on Thursday after the company crushed earnings expectations .

With the stock up 10.5 percent in after-hours trading, or $58.97 per share, Bezos' 82.9 million shares showed a gain of about $4.89 billion.

It's not the first time Bezos made a mint on earnings either — in July he posted a paper gain of $8 billion after-hours on another strong report.

But Bezos wasn't alone in having a lucrative night.

Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) beat estimates and announced a significant share buyback , sending the stock 9 percent higher in evening trading.

That was enough to make co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin $1.46 billion and $1.41 billion, respectively.

They also racked up billions in gains after July's earnings report, just as Bezos did.
