Jerome Dodson Comments on eBay - Nov 01, 2016

eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY), best known for its global online marketplace, soared 40.5% from $23.41 to $32.90, contributing 66 basis points to the Fund’s return. The stock rose after the company reported better-than-expected earnings, driven by strength in its StubHub and Classifieds businesses and a modest reacceleration in its core Marketplace segment. We’re optimistic that the company’s efforts to improve the Marketplace shopping experience will push its earnings, and its stock, even higher.
