CEO Jeff Sprecher is a visionary—but his latest move was rebuffed by the market, which isn’t as farseeing as he is. How to play the disconnect with options.
The New York Stock Exchange has told the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission it does not believe it legally needs to make public the fees for a new high-speed connection to the exchange, questioning the scope of the regulator's authority. The issue is part of a decade-long dispute between stock exchanges and brokerages, banks and asset managers over what the financial firms see as excessive fees for market access and essential data charged by the bourses, which became for-profit companies in the early 2000s. The SEC has in recent years challenged the exchanges' ability to raise those fees if they do not adequately explain why increases are justified.
Intercontinental Exchange’s attempt to buy eBay confounded Wall Street and also provided a good entry point for investors wanting to buy into the stock.
MIAX Pearl, one of three options exchanges run by Miami International Holdings Inc, said on Monday it plans to launch stock trading in September, adding to a growing list of firms looking to take market share from incumbents like the New York Stock Exchange. MIAX said in a statement its plan to begin trading shares was still subject to approval by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and provided a link to a filing it made with the agency on Thursday. "The entry of an innovative, cost competitive market such as Pearl Equities will promote competition, spurring existing exchanges to improve their own executions systems and reduce trading costs," MIAX said in the filing.

The news first hit the internet on February 4. The Wall Street Journal reported that Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE:ICE), the owners of the New York Stock Exchange, had made an offer of more than $30 billion for eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY). EBAY stock jumped by more than 8%. Source: Mano Kors / Shutterstock.com For eBay shareholders, it was good while it lasted. ICE Threw Cold Water on eBay StockTwo days later, ICE CEO Jeff Sprecher announced that the company had broken off talks with eBay. As I write this, eBay is down almost 7% in pre-market trading Feb. 7, 2020. That downward trend is likely to carry into Friday's trading. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhen I first saw the news fly across my screen that ICE was making a play for eBay, much like the news Kobe Bryant had died, it took me a few seconds to process. * 7 Utility Stocks to Buy That Offer Juicy Dividends Why on god's green earth would the owner of the NYSE want to buy a company that helps people sell stuff? Many of ICE's investors felt the same way, voicing their concerns to Sprecher directly. "Based on investor conversations following today's ICE earnings call, ICE has decided to cease exploring strategic opportunities with EBay," the exchange said in a statement.From ICE's perspective, its obvious how the attributes of its business of running marketplaces on a large scale could be helpful to big companies looking to reinvigorate their operations or small ones trying to scale up. Sometimes, the unconventional works; this time, it didn't. If you own ICE stock, I wouldn't be concerned about its outside-the-box play for eBay. It shows how management is always considering ways to make ICE better while delivering value to shareholders; that's gold.But as for eBay, it demonstrates how rudderless the company is at the moment.If you own eBay stock, you better hope that some other buyer comes along in the not-too-distant future that is a more conventional fit because there appears few if any catalysts to it higher. Signs eBay is FalteringCNBC reported February 5 that eBay had ended its employee shuttle service for commuters in the San Francisco Bay Area. That comes after laying off 102 employees in San Francisco and Seattle. The company says not enough people were using the service, but it appears the real reason was to satisfy activist investors Elliott Management and Starboard Value. According to Bloomberg, Starboard is pushing the company to jettison its classifieds business while also setting loftier expectations for itself, including doing more with less. Hence, the cuts mentioned above. "In order to achieve the optimal outcome, we believe classifieds must be separated, and a more comprehensive and aggressive operating plan must be put in place to drive profitable growth in the core marketplace business," Peter Feld, the head of research for Starboard Value, stated in a letter to the company.Just as it had no interest in selling out to ICE, eBay appears to have little desire to meet the demands of the activists. At least not to the extent Starboard would like.Frankly, even though I believe that eBay is not a stock worth owning given its lack of direction, I find it amazing that these two investors -- Starboard own a little more than 1% and Elliott owns 1.4% -- who combined have less than half the ownership stake of founder Pierre Omidyar, dare to push their weight around like they own the place. They might have a lot of good points to make, but activism of this kind illustrates how the deck is stacked in favor of the 1%. But, I digress. Competition is Hurting BusinesseBay continues to fall behind its eCommerce rivals and the addition of sales taxes is only going to make its recovery that much more difficult. As the Financial Times reported in late January, a total of 33 states, including three biggies: California, Texas and New York, have already implemented internet sales taxes and more are expected to follow. "This rollout happened faster than anticipated and affected small businesses and consumer sellers requiring marketplaces to collect and remit on their behalf," said Scott Schenkel, eBay's interim chief executive. eBay believes a national internet sales tax makes sense to reduce the burden on small businesses. The reality is that eBay's revenue grew by just 2% in 2019, excluding currency, a figure that hardly instills fear at Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) headquarters. Shareholders can be thankful that it still managed to pull in $2.4 billion in non-GAAP profits from its ongoing operations. So, even though it's broken, the lights aren't about to go out in San Jose. The Bottom Line on EBAY StockIn fiscal 2019, eBay had $2.6 billion in free cash flow. Based on a current enterprise value of $30.0 billion, it has an FCF yield of 8.7%. Anything above 8%, I consider value territory. From this perspective, I can see why Starboard and Elliott are interested in eBay stock. It's a value play for sure. But as I said in November, I would still rather own its former stablemate, PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL). Its future is much clearer.

EBay Inc. shares declined in after-hours trading Thursday after Intercontinental Exchange Inc. said that it was no longer interesting in acquiring the company. "Based on investor conversations following today's ICE earnings call, ICE has decided to cease exploring strategic opportunities with eBay," the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange said in an announcement after trading closed Thursday afternoon. ICE's potential interest in buying eBay emerged Tuesday, and eBay shares had gained while ICE shares had declined in reaction. In the extended session Thursday following ICE's statement, eBay stock declined about 6% while ICE's stock increased more than 3%.
Days after it emerged that Intercontinental Exchange pursued eBay—and its stock took a beating for the deal—the New York Stock Exchange parent is calling the whole thing off.
(Bloomberg) -- Intercontinental Exchange Inc. Chief Executive Officer Jeff Sprecher spent almost 40 minutes explaining why the firm was interested in a tie-up with EBay Inc. Investors weren’t persuaded. Late Thursday, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange said it’s giving up the pursuit.“Based on investor conversations following today’s ICE earnings call, ICE has decided to cease exploring strategic opportunities with EBay,” the exchange operator said in a statement.EBay “was not interested” in a deal, Sprecher had told analysts on ICE’s earnings call earlier in the day. “Curiosity, and the fact that we know people there, led us to open a dialogue. And that’s kind of the end of the story.”Analysts spent most of the call’s Q&A portion asking Sprecher about ICE’s broader deal strategy in light of its interest in EBay. He said a press report about talks with EBay prompted speculation about an imminent deal, spurring his company to clarify that EBay hadn’t engaged “in a meaningful way” and the companies weren’t in negotiations.ICE shares fell 3% during regular trading Thursday, a decline that followed the 7.5% slump two days earlier, when its EBay approach was reported. They gained 2.7% at 4:41 p.m. in after-hours trading.Sprecher, on Thursday’s call, said that ICE, which owns the New York Stock Exchange, saw similarities in the two businesses as marketplaces that collect and organize data.“ICE has a long history of creating shareholder value and we’ve done so by thinking outside the box and by engaging in value-accretive transactions,” he said. Looking ahead, it’s most likely to consider deals for large, complex companies that can be reinvigorated, or small firms that would benefit from ICE’s larger platform.The EBay approach had many analysts scratching their heads. The potential link-up has no clear rationale, Piper Sandler Cos. said, while Oppenheimer & Co. voiced a widespread reaction when headlines about the talks first appeared: EBay is not a “conventional” M&A target for an exchange.To contact the reporter on this story: Lananh Nguyen in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Michael J.
