Piper Jaffray says it still estimates the total valuation of eBay's two divisions at around $62 per share on a sum-of-the-parts basis. Piper believes Marketplace could be more attractive as an acquisition candidate post separation, which it notes investors have been thinking about since the Alibaba (BABA) IPO. The firm thinks competition from Apple Pay (AAPL) and Google Wallet (GOOG) will likely add some uncertainty to PayPal’s standalone valuation. Piper has a Neutral rating on eBay. The stock is up 9% to $57.25 after announcing it will spin off PayPal into a separate publicly traded company.
