Founded by Jeff Bezos in 1994, the company has evolved from selling just books to also offering movies, games, music, electronics, clothing, auto parts, home furnishings, health and beauty aids, toys, household products and cleaning supplies, and groceries. The company has also branched out to offer services such as self-publishing, an e-commerce platform, and a co-branded credit card.

The formula has made Amazon.com one of the largest retailers in the world and shareholder a fortune. AMZN stock had its initial public offering at a split-adjusted price of $1.73 per share in May of 1997. As a June 2016, Amazon stock trades at over $700.00 per share. A $1,000 investment back then would be worth over $400,000 today.
