    Motley fool: growth rate: ebay 21% amzn 24%, but ebay 89% cheaper than amzn by P/E

    Third, eBay's core growth rate is second only to Amazon. When comparing companies, I use a measure called core operating cash flow. Core operating cash flow is simply a company's net income plus depreciation. Using this measure eliminates some of the non-cash adjustments companies make to their cash flow.

    Using this measure, only Amazon showed a faster core operating cash flow growth rate of 23.69% over the last year. eBay came in second showing 21.02% growth, compared to 18.22% growth at Google, and 7.01% growth at Walmart. Given the fact that investors can buy eBay for a P/E ratio 89% cheaper than Amazon, and get almost the same cash flow growth is impressive

      "PayPal is posting impressive growth in accounts, but the number of payments is going the other direction. In fact, in the last five quarters, active account growth has increased from 12% to 16%. In this same timeframe, net payments have decreased almost sequentially from 31% to 23%. With more members and less net payments, PayPal's growth seems to be slowing down."

      Paypal is 40% of eBay's income.
