12:30 EDTEBAYeBay price target raised to $57 from $55 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank estimates a value of $29 per share for PayPal and $28 for the rest of eBay based on a sum-of-the-parts analysis to arrive at its new $57 price target for the combined company, which is up $2 from its prior target. However, the firm believes the two segments have been valued separately by investors since 2013 and that the benefits of its spin plans are not as clear as with similar moves by other companies in the past. Deutsche maintains its Hold rating on eBay.

09:43 EDTEBAYeBay, PayPal split puts both in play, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes the unexpected split-up of eBay (EBAY) and PayPal puts both businesses in play, which could create substantially more value than the firm's $67 sum-of-the-parts value for the combined company. The firm also believes the company reaffirming its Q3 guidance will come as a relief to shareholders who were concerned over the impacts of its credit breach and Google's(GOOG) algorithm changes. Wells maintains its Outperform rating on shares of eBay.

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.

Devin Wenig, currently president of eBay Marketplaces, will become CEO of the new eBay (EBAY) company. As CEO of eBay, Wenig will lead the eBay Marketplaces and eBay Enterprise businesses. Revenue over the last twelve months1 for these two businesses grew approximately 10% year-over-year to $9.9 billion, with eBay Marketplaces accounting for about $8.7 billion. eBay Marketplaces and eBay Enterprise collectively handled approximately $85 billion of gross merchandise volume and gross merchandise sales, which grew 13 percent year over year. Scott Schenkel, currently the CFO of eBay Marketplaces will become the CFO of the new eBay company. Concurrent with the announcement of the business separation plan, the company also today announced the appointment of Dan Schulman to be President of PayPal, effective immediately, and CEO-designee of the standalone PayPal company following separation. Schulman joins PayPal from American Express (AXP), where he was president of the company’s Enterprise Growth Group. A seasoned leader in multiple industries, Schulman has held senior executive and CEO roles at AT&T, Priceline and Virgin Mobile, prior to joining American Express. Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Allen & Company LLC are serving as financial advisors and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz is serving as legal counsel to eBay Inc.

07:01 EDTEBAYeBay to separate eBay, PayPal into independent publicly traded companies in 2015
eBay Inc. said its Board of Directors, following a strategic review of the company’s growth strategies and structure, has approved a plan to separate the company’s eBay and PayPal businesses into independent publicly traded companies in 2015, subject to customary conditions. Creating two standalone businesses best positions eBay and PayPal to capitalize on their respective growth opportunities in the rapidly changing global commerce and payments landscape, and is the best path for creating sustainable shareholder value, the company said. “eBay and PayPal are two great businesses with leading global positions in commerce and payments,” said eBay Inc. President and CEO John Donahoe. “For more than a decade eBay and PayPal have mutually benefited from being part of one company, creating substantial shareholder value. However, a thorough strategic review with our board shows that keeping eBay and PayPal together beyond 2015 clearly becomes less advantageous to each business strategically and competitively. The industry landscape is changing, and each business faces different competitive opportunities and challenges. In its recently completed review, the board concluded: A changing competitive landscape creates enormous opportunities for eBay and PayPal; separation will create sharper strategic focus and better position each business to capitalize on those growth opportunities as independent companies. The benefits of the existing relationships between eBay and PayPal will naturally decline over time and can be optimized in arm’s length operating agreements between the two entities. This is the best path for delivering sustainable shareholder value. The company expects to complete the transaction as a tax-free spin-off in the second half of 2015, subject to market, regulatory and certain other conditions. eBay Inc. President and CEO John Donahoe and company CFO Bob Swan will be responsible for leading the separation of each business, with board oversight. This includes determining appropriate management and capital structures for eBay and PayPal, and putting in place appropriate operating agreements. Neither Donahoe nor Swan will have an executive management role in the new eBay and PayPal companies. But to provide continuity, they each expect to serve on one or both of the boards of the two companies.

11:00 EDTAMZNBed Bath & Beyond climbs after Q2 earnings beat expectations
Shares of home decor retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) are rising after the company's second quarter earnings per share and revenue surpassed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Bed Bath & Beyond's Q2 EPS was $1.17, which was 3c higher than analysts' consensus. The company's Q2 revenue of $2.95B topped analysts' consensus of $2.89B. Same-store-sales for the quarter were up approximately 3.4%. The retailer sees Q3 EPS in the range of $1.17-$1.21, compared with analysts' consensus view of $1.20. Bed Bath & Beyond expects fiscal year 2014 EPS to be between $5.00-$5.08, compared to analysts' view of $5.03. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's conference call, Bed Bath & Beyond said that it was investing "significantly" in its business. It expects FY14 capital expenditures of approximately $350M. The retailer is opening a new distribution facility and is working on a new point of sale system. Bed Bath & Beyond said it is "cautiously optimistic" on its balance for the rest of the year. Next quarter, the company is expecting SSS growth of 2%-3%, and for Q4 it foresees 4%-5% of same-store growth. ANALYST REACTION: Yesterday morning, prior to the release of Bed Bath and Beyond's Q2 earnings report, William Blair analyst Daniel Hofkin downgraded the stock to Market Perform from Outperform. Hofkin cited his continued worries regarding the retailer's above-average exposure to e-commerce competitors. He feels that Bed Bath & Beyond waited too long before developing a strong multichannel platform and that competition from other e-commerce rivals will continue accumulating. He noted that while the company's price premium relative to Amazon (AMZN) has gotten smaller in the past few years, it still is material. Today, UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on the stock to $68 from $62 after Bed Bath & Beyond reported sales that surpassed expectations. Still, he felt that the good sales numbers occurred at the expense of its margin. He expects the retailer's operating margin decrease to impact the company's PE multiple. Lasser believes that the retailer's Q3 and Q4 comp outlook could be "aggressive," but he noted that he won't have much of an idea about those numbers until early January. He keeps a Neutral rating on the stock. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the home furnishings space include Williams Sonoma (WSM), Pier 1 Imports (PIR) and Restoration Hardware (RH). PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, Bed Bath & Beyond rose $3.99, or 6.4%, to $66.68.
