Yaaaawn! Aug 27th and ebay is deader than sullied's social life. No matter how hard it manipulates a pump it's always followed by a very predictable dump. Long bagholders will never figure out they are simply Aphids to be milked by the slimy ebay insider ants, who, facing ever less listings and sales, have taken to milking the long investors a little rise on a pump, then turning around trying to profit on the dump. Let's just solve the mystery right now: ebay is not going to $60. It should really not even be $50. Or $40 for that matter. A stalled stock with no dividends and seldom any held gain? Puleeeeze people. Learn to invest.
It's only August 27th. That is why it is so quiet for your September 1st sales. Check back with us on September 2nd. Hope this helps.
That hard shell toughness that eBay seems to dictate, possibly has a few Security Law violations
that come with it. eBay users call it a Spring Newsletter, Lawyers call it Insider Trading.
eBay is making it tough on the unique seller. If you sell drop ship item or in bulk, no problem, you sell collectibles, high-end fashion, etc. eBays policies are becoming crushing. A ton of fraud. I see bid shilling weekly, and buyers are drying up. I have a consistent following but traffic is down 40 - 70% since 3 years ago. I still sell well, but fewer, higher margin, and see the writing on the wall. In next 16 months 25% of the small sellers who are there now will be gone. Most people shrug and say so what.... they may be 5% of what eBay sells / carries. The difference? there 25% of the small sellers are the ones who carry UNIQUE and hard to find items. People go to eBay because they can't find these things anywhere else. When those sellers are gone, more people will be going to the non-eBay sites with or without brick and mortar presence.
I have zero position in EBAY, but only trying to share information with all the investors on this board. Before of this investment because I see it to go sour and down below $50 as the target price.
It is very important for all the investors to keep up its knowledge of all the competitions. Pay Pal is the only thing now making EBAY profit, but Pay Pal is facing stiffer and increased competition in its industry rapidly. Get out of EBAY because it will be a dead money and even bring you big loss down in the road. Consider the jump as a blessing and get out.

You shouldn't be searching for dolls anyway, it will take away from your time to post #$%$ stuff on this message board.
Some arachnids babies eat their mother from inside out - I could think of a few ways that Paypal is much like a spider.
Keep pumping. pump, pump, pump. Maybe sooner or later you'll find you've spent a decade and a half on this board, end up living with your 80yo mother-in-law, collecting food stamps, etc.
hey flunkie, you might realize at some point, some of us are neither short or long. Just people who know the in's and out's of eBay, far more than your Icahn adoration.
