Stellar Tech Stocks: eBay Inc (EBAY)

The raw growth from eBay Inc (EBAY), which just recently spun off its payments business PayPal Holdings Inc (PYPL), admittedly wasn’t as impressive as many names on this list. In the most recent quarter, eBay’s revenue expanded by 6% while its earning barely nudged higher.

But considering so many companies aren’t posting any growth at all, that’s still a promising foundation — especially since eBay outlined a shift in focus that could pay off down the line.

More specifically, eBay highlighted its “structured data initiative.” Much like search is a huge part of the game for Facebook, eBay is working to improve the search experience on its site with the hopes it will drive more sales.

In the Q2 presentation, eBay noted its “new browsing modules” are indeed performing and converting better than those without such modules. Thus, as the initiative continues, sales should continue to grow.

Ultra-Cheap Value Stocks to Buy Now: eBay (EBAY)

by Lin Cheong

EBAY P/E: 5.4

Some value stocks become cheap because investors believe that a competitor is about to eat (or already is eating) its lunch.

For eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) — the auction site that was one of the first true e-commerce success stories — that competitor is Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN).

The assumption that eBay is always about to be trampled by Amazon is a big reason why shares are trading at less than 6 times earnings while the market continues to set new records.

However, Christmas of 2016 was very, very good for eBay, with earnings of $601 million on revenues of $2.4 billion. The site consistently delivers operating margins of 25%, and its $7.5 billion in long-term debt is nearly equaled by the $7.13 billion of cash and short-term securities on its books at the end of 2016.

eBay is no longer just an online garage sale. It includes StubHub, the ticketing site, a host of local classified ad sites and an open source platform that lets merchants access its application program interfaces directly.

The company continues to open new markets, like wine, and the stock has advanced 13% since the start of 2017.

The success of eBay continues to create successful businesses like eDropOff, a consignment shop founded in 2004. Conscious that not all eBay sellers are honest, the company has launched an authentication program for luxury goods.

I don’t think eBay is going to be a high-flyer again, but neither do I think Amazon is about to kill it, if only because the risks of dealing with, and accounting for, fraud are costs a company like Amazon is just not interested in facing.

If you believe in the second-hand market, then, you can buy eBay with some confidence. It’s a tech stock that should do well when the next recession hits. And given that the current recovery is now 8 years old, wise investors should be ready for a recession.

eBay is also heading back to China. And instead of doing things alone, they have chose to partner with Ningbo

About a decade ago, EBay Inc. made a legendary retreat from the Chinese auction business in the face of growing local competition. It was a defeat so humiliating that it became a business school case study. Since then, however, the Chinese e-commerce market has changed drastically -- and so has EBay. As the company makes its return to the mainland, it may be at the forefront of an important trend in online trade.

EBay recently announced that it's partnering with Ningbo, a major port and manufacturing hub, to help boost the city's e-commerce with the rest of the world. That's a farsighted move. In 2016, Chinese shoppers made a whopping $86 billion in online purchases from vendors in other countries. Globally, such trade was just as healthy, adding up to $300 billion in 2015 and growing at nearly 25 percent a year -- faster than domestic e-commerce. At a time when globalization otherwise seems to be in retreat, companies taking advantage of this kind of trade are looking like the future of retail.

1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

THE ONLINE-RETAIL BOOM CONTINUES...

Today, we'll check in with an online-shopping leader...

We've highlighted problems at many brick-and-mortar retailers in the past. With falling sales, shares of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (SKT), Signet Jewelers (SIG), and L Brands (LB) have struggled this year. But online retail is thriving...

Some forecasts expect online holiday sales to jump 12% from last year. We can see this idea at work in shares of Internet retailer eBay (EBAY)...

As one of the world's largest online marketplaces, eBay is a one-stop shop for anyone looking to buy or sell anything from a tennis racket to a pickup truck.

With more than 171 million active users on the site and around 1 billion items listed for sale at any given time, it's no wonder business is booming today... The company's revenue reached a massive $2.3 billion in the second quarter.

As you can see in the chart below, eBay shares are soaring. The stock is up around 30% since January... And it's now trading at all-time highs. If the upcoming holiday season is strong, this uptrend is likely to continue...

eBay posted mixed Q2 results after the close, with a 2-cent beat on the bottom line to 53 cents per share.

Revenues of $2.64 billion missed the Zacks consensus $2.67 billion, but were still up double-digits year over year.

The earnings beat is the first time the company didn't come in exactly in-line with estimates over the past 5 quarters.

But while full-year guidance remained steady, Q3 EPS and sales guided down slightly in the report.
