13:09 EDTEBAYEarnings Preview: eBay to report Q3 earnings after PayPal spin-off announcement
eBay (EBAY) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, October 15 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. eBay is a technology company that enables commerce through Marketplaces, Payments, and GSI. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 67c on revenue of $4.37B. The consensus range is 65c-72c for EPS, and $4.33B-$4.43B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: eBay reported second quarter EPS of 69c against estimates of 68c on revenue of $4.37B against estimates of $4.38B. The company gave Q3 EPS guidance of 65c-67c and Q3 revenue guidance of $4.3B-$4.4B as well as FY14 EPS guidance of $2.95-$3.00. It narrowed FY14 revenue guidance to $18B-$18.3B from $18B-$18.5B. eBay said Google search algorithm change slowed traffic in June. The company confirmed the Q3 guidance during a conference call in September. NEWS AND STREET RESEARCH: eBay announced in late September that it will separate eBay and PayPal into two independent publicly traded companies, set to be completed in the second half of 2015. eBay Marketplaces President Devin Wenig will be the CEO of the new eBay company and Dan Schulman will become CEO of the new PayPal company. The cost of the transaction has yet to be determined, and the split is not designed to position either business for sale. During its conference call to discuss the split, the company said PayPal is on track to process 1B mobile payments this year and added that Apple (AAPL) could help speed NFC adoption and would be good for PayPal. eBay adds that it has "never been more bullish" on PayPal's prospects. Following the announcement, there were rumors that Google (GOOG) was looking to acquire eBay. Piper Jaffray said the press reports of the talks between the two companies are "largely unsubstantiated." The company was downgraded at JPMorgan, JMP Securities, Jeffries, and Wedbush after the announcement of a split due to increased uncertainty. Investors say the benefit of the spin-off plans are not as clear, unsure if a standalone PayPal is in a better position to compete in the quickly changing digital payments space. Wedbush analysts say a spin-off will not boost the payment processor's business and may have negative consequences for both companies. Investors were also split on how Apple's mobile payments platform will affect eBay and PayPal. RW Baird said Apple iWallet will pose a threat to PayPal, particularly to its opportunities at point-of-sale and Piper Jaffray said the new payments system will further weigh on eBay's multiple over the next six months. JPMorgan, however, said iWallet will be a net positive for payment networks and Citigroup believes the risks from Apple are likely overstated. PRICE ACTION: eBay shares have dropped more 2.21% since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Wednesday midday trading ahead of its earnings report, eBay shares are trading down 2%.

We’re known for assortment and we will be in the future.” Discussing price and experience, McMillon went on to say, “At Walmart, we serve value-conscious customers that come from all walks of life and all income levels. Price matters to our customers and it always will. As a company, being a low cost operator is in our DNA. This will never change and we will be the price leader, across a broad assortment, everywhere we operate." McMillon continued, “To capture the upside of our strategic advantages, we need to develop a more seamless relationship with our customers. We won't just be a store on the street." McMillon outlined what the company is doing to win now, noting that improving the company’s short-term performance is a priority across all of Walmart’s segments and markets. “Our supercenters in the U.S. should be delivering positive comps consistently. Our combination of pricing, in stock, service levels and merchant skills will generate improved performance in our supercenters. Our Neighborhood Markets continue to be a bright spot in terms of comp sales.” McMillon highlighted three key points that will drive the business going forward: “First, we're going to position ourselves to do a better job serving customers. We can create a next generation customer proposition through the combination of what we do with price, assortment, access and experience. We will save them money and time. Second, our priority is growth. Driving demand is the only sustainable way to deliver returns over time. Finally, we’ll manage capital in a disciplined, thoughtful manner.”
