Carl Icahn is rightly getting stuck into eBay
eBays long-suffering shareholders would indeed appear to have some reason to complain about that sweet little Skype deal: a neat little pea and thimble routine that took a great deal of money off eBays shareholders and put it into the pockets of at least one eBay insider; then, I dont suppose it really matters as the shareholders have never had a dividend and dont look like ever getting one while the chief headless turkey, Johnny Ho, and his gaggle of feathers friends are lining their nests
So, what does the smart money on Wall Street think about the progress of Johnny Hos delusion of converting eBay into the Westfield Mall of online shopping? Well, in late 2007, when the Ho was already effectively in control of eBay, both eBays and Amazons stock prices were ~$40; now, with the US stock market at an all time high, eBay is still only ~$56 and Amazon is ~$352.
Ah, but what about all the stock splits, you say? Well, there has not been a stock split by either Amazon or eBay since 2005. But lets then be fair and look at the value of both these entities since their IPOs, taking into account their stock splits:
eBay: 3 x 2:1 and 1 x 3:1; ie 9 x $56; equates to a current sans-splits value of ~$504
Amazon: 2 x 2:1 and 1 x 3:1; ie 7 x $352; equates to a current sans-splits value of ~$2464
The fact is, Johnny Ho has been an disaster for just about all concerned: since the Ho arrived on the scene, eBays long-suffering long shareholders have, relatively speaking, been going backwardsat a quite steady rate of knotsnotwithstanding the nonsense that constantly streams from the eBay Dept of Spin
