eBay to Reveal 2019 Financial Performance in 3 Weeks
By: Ina Steiner
How did eBay perform in 2019? We'll find out on January 28th when the company releases earnings for the fourth quarter (October, November, and December) and full year.
eBay's Scott Schenkel, who took over as interim CEO after Devin Wenig's abrupt departure on September 25th, may have some interesting things to say in light of all the changes at eBay. Here's a look at some questions and issues he may address:
- The progress of eBay's search for a new CEO.
- More color on what eBay will do with the $4.05 billion from the sale of StubHub. (In November, he said the proceeds would be put toward stock buybacks, dividends and M&A investing.)
- Current thinking on the potential sale of eBay Classifieds.
- Progress of eBay's transition to Managed Payments.
If eBay executives don't volunteer much information during the call, will analysts probe?
Sellers look at earnings calls differently than Wall Street and will be looking for signs that eBay is doing something to provide a stable platform that will bring in buyers - with no unpleasant surprises in 2020.
Feel free to post *your* questions for eBay.
