hmm... probably not, since ebay has been profitable even before they went public. to be the next AMZN, a company would have to be in the red before doing an IPO, then contiune to burn cash three years after the offering. Let's see now, just how many pure internet companies ARE making money? Well there's let's see there's YHOO, AOL and EBAY... hmm that's it? Not bad company. When you look at it that way, EBAY seems pretty reasonably priced. Could be a bargin. Remember YHOO at $60 in 1997? Didn't seem to be cheap back then either.
