FYI, a key double bottom would occur if this stock hit fifty which occured around the middle of Dec. Usually there is a bounce off these double bottoms that you might want to watch for. Stock is a definite hold, possibly add more if you are the type that buys while the stock is falling. Some people won't do this. Good Luck.
One thing I've learned after 25 years experience in the market is no pattern is predictable. You've got to roll on gut instinct. Mine tells me eBay is overvalued and we're more likely to see $40 than $60 in the near future.
EBay's stock/investor reaction to earning is (my view) unexpected. 8% retraction from $58 on same forecast from 3 weeks ago -- seem strange (the same 17% - 20% growth) 3 year growth forecast.
I expected Ebay stock to creep up to $60 after earnings and drop $6. 14 - 19% growth is not bad.
Ebay stock is not predicatable Although the trend for last 9 months has been up until last week.
