Ebay will open down but not by much, as most
investors do not trust their own judgement. People will
take a wait and see attitude. With buyers on the
sidelines the smart investors who trust their judgement
will have already begun to sell , thus as the stock
drops the uneducated investors will start selling and
so goes the day. Unlike the outages this is a
problem that cannot be fixed by a repair company nor can
be wrote off as an act of God.
Posted Sat. night - about 9:00 p.m. Pacific
Attempts to explain eBay's thinking behind new reserve
policy. Says the policy is not written in stone, but that
he hopes all will try it.
Go to "HELP" and
then "ANNOUNCEMENTS" to read in its entirety.
>>>$3-$4 earnings = 100 Billion
That's not true at all. I guess all you did is figure
that they make pennies now and in order to make 100
times that they would need to up their auctions by 100
times. Great analysis. DO you really invest in companies
based on this knowledge that you have.
advertising costs and software costs are fixed so once they
cover those, then the additional auctions are all
Next time you write something like that maybe
you should think about what you are saying or better
yet take a course on economics so you can understand
how a business works..
your bitching will have no efffect on ebay's
this latest bounce and stock price
run has been all technical.
outages and ecommerce rise towards xmas ebay will,
will retest it all time high again. Just ride it and
be happy, ebay is the one and only legit auctioneer
and growing by leaps and bounds, so stop the crying
and support this stock, you will not be sorry by
EBAY boards, cause no one is buying your crap
here on the YHOO boards ( your competition). You can
not quiet down people here or on other none EBAY
I have never seen such a strenght of
negativity and hatred being formed towards a company. A 23
point drop on Monday won't surprise me.
EBAY is on
it's own, even if there happens to be an internet
rally. EBAY has singled itself out of anything positive.
I am a very active seller of middle to upper
Ebay needs to handle this new reserve
price Gouge and handle it quick. Don't down play your
customers dis-satisfaction. Ebay customers are it's
sellers. Ebay's bidders are it's sellers customers. Ebay
needs to figure that one out.
company is this 16 billion dollar EBAY that a one
day outage will hurt their 4.6 million quarterly
For all I know this outage might have been done
PURPOSELY to have another excuse for one more quarter of no
growth. I don't think this excuse will fly again. EBAY's
days are counted.
I am still willing to put my money where my mouth
is. I will go long again at $135 even if I have to
wait a year to get there. I am not crazy, you know. I
absolutely would not take any position between 95 and 135.
This is much too dangerous at the moment according to
the chart. We can trade anywhere in that range with
just a slight breeze in the markets. However, there is
some nice support building at the 120 level now. Very
strange for a stock that has fallen so far out of favor.
Oh well, who can argue with what Wall Street has
1. You believe onefloortrader's posts will "stir
up trader's emotions..." , hate to say this, but
that tells me YOU ARE A BIG LOOSER! If any trader's
emotion can be influenced by anyoneelse' posts, take my
advice, get out of this Market, don't play this game
since you don't know how to play this game. If you want
to learn how to be a good trader, pay me first,
althrough I am an investor, not a trader like you.
Shame on you even mentioning try to use your IRA
account to short EBAY! When you opened your IRA, did your
broker tell you short selling is not allowed? You are
not even supposed to use your IRA account to buy
EBAY!!!!! And I hope you didn't, otherwise, you are going
to lose all your life savings. According to your
post, you were trying to use your IRA account to short
EBAY (and perhaps you are a trader yourself), you are
deadly wrong man!
3. How many times did you post that
you were leaving this board and how many times you
came right back after you said you were going to
leave? It's a joke that a man can not keep his own words
for such a simple thing like this and you expect
anyone to believe your BS?
I have nothing furthur to
say to you,
Good luck on your IRA account!
how come ebay with such a high p/e are you all
concerned about a 1/4 point rate hike? If the rate hike
went up 2 points it still would not matter for ebay
with its sky high p/e, what makes this stock move are
retarded people trading it.
