## DLJ comments, bet they get sued over it.

EBay has 645,000 users (each valued at
\$6,500).

Consider that statement. With a maximum fee of 5% and net
income of 15%, you would have to first take the \$6500 x
20 for the gross value of the products sold \$130,000
and then gross up a factor of six to reflect cashflow
and net income.

Therefore, DLJ is predicting
that each of these 645,000 users will be selling
(ready) \$780,000 worth of stuff between now and the end
of 1999.

For those with calculators too
small, that's \$500 BILLION in gross sales.

Figure
it out \$500 billion x 5% = \$25 billion.

\$25
billion x 15% (net) = \$3,750,000,000

Or,
approximately \$6500 per user for all 645,000
users.

Think about it, \$500 BILLION !!!!!!

What the

Never mind him,
what were the people who bought this \$17 stock doing
paying \$74 a share for it?

eBay, earned \$750,000
(that's thousand) in the last Q.

If they have a
ten-fold increase in net income in this Q and report \$7.5
million. This stock is overpriced by about
90%..

Amazing . . .

Last stat, \$500 BILLION between now
and 1999 is \$15,500 per second. Every second, for the
next fourteen months.
