Kanye West Gives Kim Kardashian West Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Worth of Stock in Five Major Companies
Kim Kardashian West revealed what husband Kanye West gave her this Christmas: Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stock in major companies including Disney, Apple, and Amazon. In an Instagram story—visible to her 105 million followers—shared on Tuesday, the reality TV star and entrepreneur shared how Kanye delivered the stock-ing stuffer.
“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,” Kardashian says, as her camera pans over the box of gifts. “And I’m like ‘that’s so sweet, thanks!'”
“But then, I open the next box and it is stock to Amazon, where he got the gift cards, stock to Netflix, stock to Apple—hence the little headphones—Adidas stock and Disney stock,” she says in the next installment, revealing stock certificates for the five companies. Kardashian wrote “best husband alert!” as the caption.
While most of the certificates are hidden from the camera, viewers of the Instagram story can see that Kim was gifted 920 Disney (DIS) shares, which the certificate says are valued at around $100,000. The Instagram story also shows that she was given 995 Adidas (ADDYY) shares, which would also have a total value of around $100,000 at current prices.
Several of these companies saw their stocks soar and crush the broader stock market in 2017. Netflix (NFLX) was up 51%, Apple (AAPL) 47%, and Amazon (AMZN) 57% year-to-date, according to CNBC.
