The eBay Shorting Consortium announced today that
it was abandoning its plan to declare this day --
September 20 -- as �National Bash eBay Day.� The intent was
to commemorate the founding of the eBay Shorting
Consortium on September 20, 1999. However, the plan
backfired when today � September 20, 2000 � eBay�s stock
September 20, 2000 marks the one year anniversary
of an historic event � the founding of the eBay
Shorting Consortium on September 20, 1999 (see message #
73487). It was on that day that several of eBay�s most
persistent bashers pooled their resources to short ONE share
of eBay at 69-1/16 (pre-split @138-1/8). On that
day, the Consortium founders announced that, after
months of relentlessly criticizing eBay, it was time to
act. Since then, the Consortium has waged an on-again
off-again bashing campaign in an attempt to bring respect
to the eBay shorting posting community and increase
the value of its ONE share short position.
Stock scientists have noted recently that in the one
year since its founding, eBay�s stock has had an
uncanny tendency to gravitate towards the very price at
which the Consortium established its ONE share short
position (69-1/16). It has been hypothesized that somehow
the Consortium has, unwittingly, cast a spell over
the stock. Whether the stock rises to 120 or falls to
40, it always seems to return to the Consortium�s
The Consortium�s leader,
Backwards_Thinker, declined to comment. Meanwhile, the eBay
investment community anxiously awaits eBay�s stock price on
Wednesday, September 20, 2000.
Do you still have or added to your EBAY Oct 95
OT: Your NITE ran up pretty good today
and tomorrow is a critical day to hold its gains and
support. My guess is, 30 will be tested along with 29
You seem a smart guy. Obviously you think time is
on the long side. Why? What makes EBAY worth
Just some perspective. In 1992, Microsoft had earnings
of 15 cents. EBAY this year has maybe 12 cents.
Microsoft sold for a high of $6, a high PE of 39. If
Microsoft in 1992 sold at the same PE that EBAY sells for
today, it would have cost $187. What did MSFT close at
today, about $97?
So, apply EBAY's PE to MSFT in
1992 and you would have had to pay $187 for a share of
MSFT in 1992. Today, the greatest growth stock in
history closed at $97 and you would have lost almost half
your money. Do you understand?
So, what makes
EBAY worth $150?
