What are Wall Street analysts saying about eBay stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about eBay stock:
  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain NEUTRAL and could look to potentially become more constructive with our views if signs of GMV growth acceleration materialize. In 3Q, U.S. Marketplace GMV growth slowed +2%, below our expectation for +MSD-HSD% growth. PayPal’s 3Q18 report on 10/18 suggested eBay’s growth decelerated QoQ (Exhibit 3), and eBay’s result today confirmed this decelerating trajectory. In terms of new product-based experiences on the site, new users continue to respond well (improved conversion), but conversion gains have not materialized among existing eBay users. This has limited the company’s ability to scale new experiences. Increased marketing in 3Q also had a mixed impact, and coupled with the negative impact of a strong USD on the U.S. export business, growth decelerated." (10/30/2018)
  • 2. Aegis analysts commented, "We reduced our 3Q18 revenue and EPS estimates and our price target following comments from PayPal (PYPL-$84.78:NR) that eBay’s growth had slowed. More specifically, PayPal noted that its on-Bay TPV has slowed to 3% in 2Q18. PayPal’s on-eBay reported growth rate has closely tracked eBay’s actual reported GMV growth rate for several quarters. For instance, the ex-FX reported Marketplace GMV growth in 2Q18 was 7% vs the 6% from PayPal we noted above. PayPal also cited negative seller feedback (reduced sales) for those who switched to intermediated payments, which began on September 25th. While we have not spoken to eBay, given the tight historical correlation, we reduced our Domestic GMV growth estimate to 5% and reduced our FX neutral International GMV growth to 6% YoY from 7% YoY." (10/23/2018)
  • 3. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We maintain our Hold rating. How much does PayPal see on eBay? We believe PayPal intermediates the vast majority of payments on eBay (>80% of Marketplace GMV, by our estimate). While eBay is slowly intermediating payments themselves, the company 1) did not announce that they began intermediating payments on its Marketplace platform in the U.S. until 9/25 (i.e. very end of 3Q) and 2) eBay can only intermediate up to 5% of GMV until June of 2019. Additionally, previous earning reports show PayPal can be a good read through to eBay. PayPal reported 6% Y/Y FXN growth for 1Q and 2Q volumes on eBay vs. eBay’s actual report of 7% and ~6% (excluding Giosis) Y/Y FXN Marketplace GMV growth for 1Q and 2Q, respectively. What does this mean for consensus estimates? We believe estimates will need to come down for 2H18/2019." (10/19/2018)
  • 4. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We expect Forrester to report Q3/18 total revenue of $83.5 million, which is 1% less than the FactSet consensus of $84.7 million. Our forecast represents year‐over‐year growth of 4% and a sequential decline of 13%. Revenue tends to be seasonally weak in the third quarter due to the impact of vacations. While we expect Research Services (RS) revenue, 64% of trailing twelve months’ (TTM) revenue, to grow 3% YOY, we expect Advisory/Event Services (AES) revenue, 36% of TTM revenue, to grow 5%." (10/16/2018)
  • 5. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We believe the eBay / Square partnership will benefit both companies as the collaboration will enhance the financing process for eBay’s sellers as well as help Square expand its reach in non-Square merchant lending." (7/19/2018)
