Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stocks for Christmas

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is a shareholder of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stocks.

Kardashian shared on Instagram that her hip-hop mogul husband, Kanye West, gave her shares of Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX), Disney (DIS), and Adidas (ADS.DE).

“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!’ Kardashian said in one Instagram video.

In another video, captioned “best husband alert!,” Kardashian 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.”

Kim Kardashian received shares of Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, and Adidas for Christmas.

According to the video clip, Kardashian owns 920 shares of Disney, valued at approximately $100,000. She also holds 995 shares of Adidas. Shares of Adidas last closed at 169.40 euros, valuing her position at around $199,920 USD.

It’s unclear the number of shares she held in the tech stocks as the other certificates covered them. Those three, which are constituents of the so-called “FAANG” stocks, have been on an absolute tear in 2017. Shares of Netflix have climbed 51% the year, while Apple has propelled 47% and Amazon has surged 56%.

Netflix, Amazon, and Apple have been some of the biggest movers in 2017.
