Weitz Investment Management Comments on eBay Inc.

May 06, 2014 | About:

Finally, eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: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

From Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s first quarter 2014 report.
