Ebay is one of those survivors from the “dotcom” era that has thrived during some turbulent times and as competition from other ecommerce companies – Amazon, Alibaba, Apple, and even Facebook and Google – has heated up. Yet Ebay continues to evolve and dominate its space. (It’s worth noting that their PayPal unit is considered the gem, and many analysts expect Ebay to spin off PayPal sooner rather than later.)
From a chart perspective, Ebay’s relative strength is quite notable. We like companies that not only outperform the market but its competitors as well. Recently, the stock powered through tough resistance in the $60 area on some very impressive volume. On Monday, June 1 the stock accelerated with some strong turnover, breaking levels not seen in years. We expect to see this trend continue as the stock makes its way toward $70.
