All except eBay Inc....

The only measure of a listed company’s success is its share price; Johnny Ho is now into the seventh year of his “three-year turnaround” of eBay; he’s expended a whole lot of shareholders’ funds, and still there is little sign of improvement.

So, what does the “smart money” on Wall Street think about the progress of Johnny Ho’s dream of converting eBay into the “Westfield Mall” of online shopping? Well, in late 2007 both eBay’s and Amazon’s stock prices were ~$40; now, with the US stock market at an all time high, eBay is still only ~$54 and Amazon is ~$399. What more telling data does anyone need to know that Johnny Ho has been an unmitigated disaster for all concerned—except for himself, of course?

Since the Ho arrived on the scene, eBay’s long-suffering long shareholders have, relatively speaking, been effectively going backwards—at a quite steady rate of knots—notwithstanding the nonsense that constantly spews from the eBay Dept of Spin …

The only people making any money out of eBay are Johnny Ho and the gaggle of like-bodied headless turkeys that he has surrounded himself with, and with whom he apparently spends all day blindly running around in circles in the eBay executive suite, as they dream on about how they are going to re-invent the eBay marketplace as the “Westfield Mall” of online commerce for every leading retailer, brand and manufacturer across the world … Dream on, Johnny Ho …

The real question is, just how much longer are eBay’s major institutional investors going to let the Ho turkey survive with such continuing poor results and increasingly bad consumer responses in the media, about which not even all the hot air generated by the eBay Dept of Spin can counteract?

I also have to wonder if Pierre Omidyar has ever thought about just how much more fabulously wealthy he might now have been had he not ok'd the handing over of the control of eBay to this incompetent, destructive, unscrupulous, narcissistic sociopath—Johnny Ho?

Clearly, the message from the smart money on Wall Street is that eBay Inc. is a "dog" and Johnny Ho is an utterly incompetent dog handler ...
