+ Watch EBAY
on My Watchlist
Offering a forum for the buying and selling of stuff, eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace.
In it for Paypal
Recent capitulation - stock is down 4% over the last 52 weeks. There's upside here...looks like a good stock for 2014 IMO.
ebay is on the way to extinction. It's lousy customer service, poor leadership, and its disgusting treatment of its small-medium size sellers has finally caught up with it. They have kicked out tens of thousands of sellers who would bring in millions if not billions of revenue for ebay. Doing so, ebay has committed corporate suicide-that is why their revenue is down in every quarter and will continue on the way down. Just look at the numbers. Don't sink with this titanic or you will lose all that you've invested. Get out now!
Internet sales are growing, EBAY is aggressive and looking for now ways to improve their model and I don't get the feeling that the love AMAZON and others enjoy is flowing EBAYS way yet but it will.
cash generating machine and paypal.
The business has matured, and its competition is fierce.
Being an eBay user, as both buyer and seller, for over eight years has given me an insight into one of the most badly run companies on the planet. With the right management, which it doesn't currently have, eBay's stock price could be at least five times what it is today.
eventually they will spin off PayPal to unlock it's value
With ebay's pay pal service recognized world wide I can't see anything but a continuous upward movement. Seems like after buying from e-bay numerous times I noticed that most vendors will only accept Pay-Pal. This of course owned by e-bay.
The market didn't like EBAY's recent earnings report and seemingly negative outlook for the upcoming quarter, but I didn't think it deserved a negative reaction at all. In fact, management has come out and stated that they didn't intend for their outlook to be received in such a negative fashion. PayPal continues to grow at rates above 20% and the rest of the business is also performing quite well. I like the way that management has executed over the past 3-5 years, and the company is set to continue to grow and capitalize on long-term online and mobile commerce trends. I believe that this is an attractive entry point for investors with a long-term focus.
Good in a recession, good for niche items, Paypal juggernaut, buying on a dip
paypal processing will grow
Its a fast way to get what you need.
PayPal spinoff coming
Ecommerce will continue to grow and Ebay will be the leader in payments.
I rate this outperform because of Paypal. I could take or leave the whole eBay business--PayPal is where it's at. I continue to buy eBay dips because of the hope of a paypal spinoff to which I can exchange shares!
Rise of mobile payments and ease of use with this website will help it continue to grow.
