Ebay (EBAY) is a California-based digital marketplace that helps connect buyers and sellers.
And the e-commerce company’s efforts to broaden payment options helped it post strong quarterly results…
In the second quarter, EBAY reported earnings per share of $0.99 compared to the estimated $0.96. The company’s revenue came in at $2.67 billion compared to the expected $2.63 billion.
EBAY offered guidance as well. The online marketplace noted that EPS could be in the range of $0.86 to $0.90 versus the anticipated $0.88. The company forecast that revenue may be $2.42 billion to $2.47 billion, in line with the estimated $2.47 billion.
CEO Jamie Iannone explained that EBAY’s moves to add alternate payment methods such as cryptocurrency helped drive the company’s solid financials. He highlighted that because of this, EBAY would further invest in streamlining the payment experience between buyers and sellers.
This prompted investment advisory firm Baird to reiterate an “outperform” rating for EBAY stock. Baird also increased its price target from $75 to $85.
This suggests that even though EBAY is one of the largest e-commerce and payment companies around, it still offers growth opportunities for investors. And as the online marketplace further pursues alternate payment options, it could entice more consumers to use its platform.
