13:43 EDTECOM, EBAY, GOOG, AMZNeBay slips after May SSS estimate, Amazon payment launch
Shares of eBay (EBAY) are slipping after e-commerce peer Amazon (AMZN) launched a new online subscription payment service and data released late Friday estimated the impact that eBay's recent data breach may have had on its merchandise volume growth. WHAT'S NEW: Reuters reported that Amazon is aiming to begin managing subscription payments for start-ups and other companies with the launch of its new service, which is the e-commerce giant's latest motion into the territory of PayPal, eBay's payments division, over the past twelve months. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Data released late on Friday by ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), a provider of information and research for retailers, estimated that eBay's same-store-sales rose 11.5% in May, which was down from April's 14% growth. ChannelAdvisor noted that eBay had "unusual" events happen during the month, pointing out that on May 21 eBay announced they were dealing with a data breach from hackers and, the next day, reports said that Google's (GOOG) Panda 4.0 release caused anywhere from 40-80% of eBay's pages to be de-indexed. ANALYST REACTION: Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said that ChannelAdvisor's May SSS report for eBay and the disclosure of the before and after breach impacts to gross merchandise volume growth show that eBay decelerated from about 13% before the breach to about 8% after the breach. Munster feels that this implies U.S. GMV growth was in-line with the firm's lowered estimate. Piper Jaffray anticipates that June data will see a similar affect from the security breach. While Munster says his long-term view of eBay is intact, he feels that Wall Street consensus expectations for eBay's June performance are likely still too high given the chances for lower GMV growth. The firm keeps an Overweight rating on eBay. PRICE ACTION. During afternoon trading, shares of eBay slipped 8c, or 0.2%, to $49.62.
