Alibaba is talking IPO for Alipay, as per reports this am, at a price of $60. Wouldn't you think that Paypal should be worth more than Alipay?
Floated just to goose up the price. After finally becoming independent why would PayPal want to sell? Makes little sense, now a partnership would seem to be beneficial but that is very different.
Amazon? That is irrelevant, Staples is the issue because they were to remain #1 after the merger of Depot and Max, Amazon is a smokescreen, the proposed Staples merger results in an almost 80% market share without any company being a clear #2.
