eBay now has nearly all of the bugs worked out of its operating system. Although its size is not as important as its rate of growth, both are impressive. Is the stock overpriced now? Probably. Yet its long-term potential is nearly as good as any blue chip. I have a degree in accounting, and as a tax accountant have a lot of time to dabble when it is not tax season. I now prefer eBay to live auctions and other on-line auctions. The potential is tremendous. You need to verify your age to get into certain areas of ebay, so it isn't the wide open market some would have you believe. These guys are going to be real hard to beat. I sure wouldn't bet against them.
