Here’s how much a $1,000 investment in Amazon stock in 2010 is now worth

In the wake of a tumultuous 2022 marked by challenging global economic conditions, Amazon‘s (NASDAQ: AMZN) stock has staged a remarkable rally, reaffirming its status as one of the world’s largest companies by market capitalization.

However, what is truly captivating is Amazon’s awe-inspiring growth journey spanning the last decade or so alongside its tech peers Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT).

Since September 20, 2010, the company’s share price has surged by an astonishing 1,770%, from $7.57 to $139.98 on September 19, 2023.

Amazon forays into carbon removal technology

While Amazon continues to take advantage of the strong demand for its AI and cloud offerings, the tech giant made forays into another emerging technology. 

After the US government made hefty investments into the technology that sucks carbon out of the air, big businesses, including Microsoft and now Amazon, followed suit.  

Notably, the company announced last week it would help fund the largest deployment of direct air capture technology by buying 0.25 million metric tons of carbon removal over the following 10 years, from STRATOS, a $1 billion project aimed at removing carbon from the atmosphere. 

The dollar value of Amazon’s investment remains undisclosed.
