    • I had a dopey the dwarf hand puppet when I was a
      kid. I feel that way today. After I shorted Ebay @
      242, it shot up 59 in one day and then dropped like a
      rock. Who knows about tomorrow? This is more fun than a
      roller coaster.

    • The market does what the market does. It does not
      have to follow a P/E formula (esp. for a Internet
      stock). The ones who "know what they are doing" are those
      who have bought this stock low and have the chance
      now to sell very high. You should graciously tip your
      hat to their crystal ball skills. They made a nice
      profit on what you said was worthless. Making profit is
      the name of the game. Maybe the Internets will make a
      correction (in years)but in the mean time some longs are
      buying your yacht.

    • You are right on the button, the earnings announcement IS a joke.

    • You see it your way, I see it mine. Anyone can
      open up an online bookstore and be on an equal playing
      field with AMZN. Ebay is a completely different
      environment. Don't know why you don't see that. P.S. I don't
      look to Rosie about getting investment advice,
      however, you may want to talk to the authors of books that
      Oprah plugs. Millions of viewers, millions of $ of free
      plugs, where's the downside. Common sense, guy.

    • you cannot use logic on this stock, only patience. the market has no idea what they are doing, they'll realize that soon enough and things will take care of themselves.

    • Am I missing something or does the very numbers
      used in earnings upgrade justify this stock going
      down? Raised earnings to 22 cents for 1999 and 55 cents
      for 2000. This gives the company an earnings growth
      rate of 150% from 1999 to 2000. Growth rate of 150%
      should equal PE of the same 150. Taking 2000 earnings of
      55 cents (being generous) x 150 = $82.50 share. Even
      if growth rate continues at 150% that would be
      earnings of 83 cents in 2001 and $1.24 in 2002. At the
      price today the stock would still have a PE of aprrox
      245 (305 / 1.24) 3 years from now.

    • "Ebay will not have competitors."

      Wow. I
      wish I had such a clear view of the future. Also, good
      idea about tuning in to Rosie to get investment ideas.
      CNBC is just so "over." Good luck to you down there in
      the trailer park.

    • A service that checks auction site for items for
      sale has been available since 1995. It's called
      BidFind and is located at www.bidfind.com. It came online
      about the same time as Ebay and hasn't really hurt
      their growth. Problem is that no one wants to have to
      register at all of those separate auction sites just to
      bid on a single item.
