11:14 EDTEBAYIcahn posts another letter to eBay shareholders, says eBay prefers passive model
Carl Icahn posted a new letter to eBay shareholders to his "Shareholder's Square Table" website. In the letter, Icahn writes: "For many years I have been a proponent of active participation by stockholders in public companies...Sadly, in the case of eBay, it is abundantly clear that management favors the passive stockholder model...The eBay annual meeting is a tremendous and completely appropriate opportunity to turn the tide – for stockholders to show the management of a large, underperforming technology company with what I believe are obviously self-interested board members, that we are paying attention and will demand accountability."

12:12 EDTEBAYOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session in positive territory after Greece's Parliament approved austerity measures that should pave the way for the country to receive a new bailout package. With earnings season gaining steam and the situations in Greece and China appearing more stable in recent days, the S&P and Nasdaq are back within striking distance of their all-time highs. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped to 281,000 in the week ended July 11, versus expectations for 285,000 first-time claims. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index for July came in at 60, a point better than forecast. The Philly Fed business outlook index dropped 9.5 points to 5.7 in July, falling short of the 12.0 reading that was expected. In Europe, Greek lawmakers passed the country's austerity agreement and Euro-area finance ministers also reportedly agreed in principle to extend a $7.6B bridge loan to Greece. The loan, which will come from the European Financial Stabilization Mechanism, should help keep Greece afloat while Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras negotiates the details of the country's three-year bailout. COMPANY NEWS: Netflix (NFLX) rallied 16% and hit a split-adjusted all-time high of $114.45 per share after the streaming service operator reported stronger than expected second quarter results, including higher than expected Q2 subscriber metrics, prompting a large number of research firms to raise their price targets on the stock... The third-largest U.S. bank, Citigroup (C), posted second quarter profit, excluding adjustments and one-time items, of $1.45 per share, beating the $1.34 average estimate of analysts. Goldman Sachs (GS) reported Q2 earnings per share of $1.98, which fell far short of the consensus forecast of $3.89. However, the firm recorded $1.45B in net provisions for litigation and regulatory matters, which reduced EPS for the quarter by $2.77. Goldman Chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein said the bank was "pleased" with its quarterly performance, adding that while "uncertainty in the EU" weighed on investors’ conviction, many of its businesses continued to benefit from generally improving economic conditions. Citi shares rose 3.5% following its report, while Goldman shares slipped a bit more than 1.5%... eBay (EBAY), which is set to split from PayPal (PYPL) in just a few days, reported better than expected earnings for the still-combined company. eBay also announced an additional $1B stock repurchase authorization, bringing its total buyback allowance to $3B, and confirmed it reached a deal to sell eBay Enterprise to a consortium consisting of Sterling Partners, Permira Funds and others for $925M. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amira Nature Foods (ANFI), which advanced 16% after the company reported earnings and said it sees "double-digit" revenue growth in its new fiscal year. Also higher was Philip Morris (PM), which gained 3% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue, excluding certain items. Among the noteworthy losers was Rovi (ROVI), which dropped 16.5% after Netflix was granted a motion of summary judgment invalidating all five of the remaining Rovi patents that were being contested in litigation between the companies. Also lower was Garmin (GRMN), which fell 9% after reporting preliminary Q2 earnings that fell short of expectations, citing the negative impact of currency movements and a "more promotional pricing environment" in the fitness segment. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 35.47, or 0.2%, to 18,085.64, the Nasdaq was up 54.08, or 1.06%, to 5,153.02, and the S&P 500 was up 14.10, or 0.67%, to 2,121.50.

07:53 EDTEBAYeBay CEO says PayPal, eBay both delivered 'strong Q2 results'
"We are very pleased with our overall Q2 performance. PayPal and eBay both delivered strong Q2 results and have strong momentum. Dan, Devin and their respective teams are executing well and are prepared to create the next great chapter for PayPal and eBay," said eBay Inc. President and CEO John Donahoe. eBay gross merchandise volume, or GMV, growth on an FX neutral basis accelerated 1 point over the prior period to 6% and net total payment volume growth accelerated 3 points to 28%. On a year over year basis, foreign currency movements continued to have a negative effect, impacting the revenue growth rate of the eBay Marketplaces business by 8 points and the revenue growth rate of PayPal’s business by 3 points, with benefits from currency hedging partially offsetting the impact at PayPal. Additionally, weaker local currencies in some markets led to reduced demand for goods in export-oriented markets like the United States, impacting the growth of its cross border trade for eBay Marketplaces and PayPal, the company said.
