This is the best longterm stock around, hands down. They dominate a huge and rapidly growing market, their overhead can be reduced dramatically any time they want to, and the internet sector cooling off only assures ebay a stranglehold on this market. I love this stock and have made a fortune on it. Long term, you can compare this stock to microsoft, Aol, or Intel. Eventually it will move to vertical markets outside of consumer goods and it will dominate that space too. Ebay is a machine and nobody can compete with it. ITS AWESOME. The shorters are shaking the tree, be smart and double down.
