Growth is what drives up stocks! Amazon and many many other sites are taken biz away from ebay and that is what is driving them. Most people who sell on the net know this. Wall st. in the past year has started to figure out that the seller issues are not just noise. The movement away from ebay is very real for buyers and seller! As a buyer.... don't you think you should know who you are bidding against?.... I do! Ebay encourages sellers to be dishonest.....let your seller buddies bid on your items and run it up....seller makes out and ebay makes out..... all in the name of security...Right! The general public is not buying it anymore. The growth in core markets is headed down. Paypal is making money.... the rest of ebay is in slow decline. Since they do not pay a dividend.... why be here?
