Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos total 2020 pay stays at $1.7 million, with most representing security costsAmazon.com Inc. Chief Executive Jeff Bezos base salary for 2020 remained at $81,840, the same as 2019 and just a little more than double the median total compensation U.S. full-time employees of $37,930. In the ecommerce and cloud giant's 2020 proxy statement filed late Wednesday, Amazon disclosed that Bezos total 2020 compensation was $1,681,840, also the same as the year before, as he again received no stock awards and "all other compensation" remained at $1.60 million. For Bezos, all other compensation represents costs to the company for security arrangements for Bezos, which the company said it believed was "reasonable" in light of Bezos' "low salary." But despite the low salary, Bezos acknowledged in a letter to shareholders that he was "wealthy," as recent filings show he owned 53.21 million Amazon shares, representing 10.57% of the shares outstanding, and valued at $180.1 billion at current prices. The stock, which rose 1.6% in morning trading, has rallied 46.7% over the past 12 months while the S&P 500 has advanced 49.2%.

Amazon's recent stock surge has helped fend off bearish 'death cross' pattern, for nowAmazon.com Inc. stock's recent surge, in which it has shot up 9.3% this month toward a six-month high in afternoon trading Monday, as helped stave off an impending bearish "death cross" pattern, at least for now.

The 50-DMA was declining at an average daily rate of $2.167 per day over the 30 days to April 8, falling to $3,169.008 on April 8, while the 200-DMA was rising at an average daily rate of $2.989 to $3,160.075 on April 8.

The last time the 50-DMA was below the 200-DMA was Feb. 4, 2020. The stock's rally so far this month has outperformed the S&P 500's month-to-date gain of 3.7%.

Shopify stock gains after Stifel says it's a buyShares of Shopify Inc. are up 4% in Wednesday morning trading after Stifel analyst Scott Devitt initiated coverage of the e-commerce company with a buy rating and $1,200 price target.
