The analysts wrote, “The long-term winners in eCommerce will likely be those that can leverage both a high-traffic destination site with a global fulfillment network. The quest for eCommerce GMV should have multiple winners, Amazon.com ($212.89) and eBay ($40.35) being two of them, in our view. Raising eBay PT to $49 and reiterate our OW rating.”
