    Is it a possibility that EBay buys LQDT?

    EBay buying LQDT would make them the only player in town, anyone heard of this or think this is a possibility of happening down the road? For me as an investor, this union makes perfect sense.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Wishful thinking. Why did LQDT withdraw from the government auction in early April, citing the price being too high? What's driving the cost up, if not competition?

      • DoD Rolling stock contract refers to end of life Military eqpt on wheels. The parts required by special bases are first stripped and the rest marked for collection. It is a highly specialized market often relying on military retirees. There are restrictions on sales and specialists who know how to circumvent them.

        A killing is made when your client , like a foreign nation , desperately wants certain parts in bulk.This is not a open market . The bidding spiked when the bidder was quietly approached by a buyer and DOD had the parts. Its as simple as that.

        These rolling stock bids are indeed complicated.

    • i had this same idea yesterday morning. Wonder what Ebay is going to do with all their repatriated cash now?
