Last quarter, EBAY traded lower post its Q2 earnings announcement owing largely to slow growth. And analysts are now expecting a sluggish Q3 results. Though the organic growth is disappointing, EBay has a loyal user base to keep it going. EBAY has made 6 acquisitions in 2016, out of which 4 are software startups.
