Is eBay Stock a Buy Today?

Shares of online auction dynamo eBay , although still ahead of the market over the past year, have cooled somewhat in the past few months. Have the company's still-impressive growth prospects cooled?

Not exactly. As Andrew Tonner argues in the following video, eBay remains poised for long-term success. He says the company has a number of attractive tailwinds that should help it keep delivering solid, if not strong, returns for years to come in its robust online auction platform and through its PayPal subsidiary that's an absolute powerhouse in its own right. Although it's not cheap by strict value definitions, Andrew says, eBay still has plenty of tricks up its sleeve to keep investors happy for years to come.
