GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on eBay Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on eBay Inc - Oct 17, 2014

On the final day of the quarter, eBay (EBAY) announced its intention to separate into two separate publicly-traded companies – PayPal and “new” eBay – during the second half of 2015. Despite some initial excitement, investor sentiment remains lukewarm and the stock undervalued.

From Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s Value Fund Q3 2014 Commentary.

Weitz Investment Management Comments on eBay Inc. - May 06, 2014

Finally, eBay Inc. (EBAY) made its return to the Value Fund after a relatively brief period of ownership during 2008/2009. The company recently concluded a public battle with billionaire activist Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) over whether to separate its namesake online commerce platform eBay.com from PayPal, its rapidly growing mobile payments platform. We saw merit in both sides of the argument, but believed the two businesses were worth considerably more than where they were trading regardless of outcome. Both Marketplaces and PayPal have strong competitive positions and are reinvesting heavily to protect and extend their advantages. We believe EBAY shares are worth roughly $70 today

The Top Net Buys Of The Hedge Fund Gurus
Now that the second quarter portfolios have been filed with the SEC, I used the GuruFocus S&P 500 Grid to get a look at what the hedge fund gurus have been buying. I prefer to use “net buys” over “buys” because it also factors in what the hedge fund gurus have been selling. When using the S&P 500 Grid, I adjusted the settings to only include the hedge fund gurus and examined the results for both S&P 500 and non-S&P 500 companies. The top results were MasterCard (MA), eBay (EBAY), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Ally Financial (ALLY), Actavis (ACT), and Allergan (AGN). Read more...

EBay Inc was formed as a sole proprietorship in September 1995 and was incorporated in California in May 1996. In April 1998, it reincorporated in Delaware, and in September 1998, it completed the initial public offering of its common stock. The Company is a technology company that enables commerce through three reportable segments: Marketplaces, Payments and GSI. These segments provide online platform, services and tools to help individuals and small, medium and large merchants around the globe establish online and mobile commerce and payments. Its Marketplaces segment brings buyers and sellers together through fully automated and easy-to-use online websites and mobile applications that are available throughout the world at any time, including through localized eBay.com sites in many countries. The Company's payments segment provides efficient payment and settlement capabilities for consumers and merchants on and off eBay websites and other merchant websites. It has three main payment brands: PayPal, which enables individuals and businesses to securely, easily and quickly send and receive payments online and through a broad range of mobile devices in approximately 190 markets worldwide; Bill Me Later, which enables U.S. merchants to offer, and U.S. consumers to obtain, credit at the point of sale for ecommerce and mobile transactions through Bill Me Later's relationship with a chartered financial institution; and Zong, acquired in August 2011, which enables users with a mobile phone to purchase digital goods and have the transactions charged to their phone bill. It also recently acquired BillSAFE, a provider of payment services for online merchants in Germany who offer their customers the ability to pay for purchases upon receipt of an invoice. Its GSI segment is a provider of ecommerce and interactive marketing services to enterprise clients that include some of the world's premier brands and retailers. It offers a suite of solutions designed to power merchants' online businesses and effectively integrate with their other sales channels. Its advanced technology, fulfillment, customer care and interactive marketing services are designed to enable its clients to elevate the consumer experience and cost-effectively sustain it over time. GSI operates two business units: Global eCommerce Services, or GeC, and Global Marketing Services, or GMS. Each business unit offers products and services that complement the other, which allows for cross-selling opportunities. The Company encounters vigorous competition in its businesses from numerous sources. The Company is subject to laws relating to the collection, use, retention, security and transfer of personally identifiable information about its users.
