Bear Case Scenario for Ebay (Nasdaq:EBAY) Consider these issues when listening to management talk to the numbers. Competition from Amazon and Google, with competing marketplaces, online payment services, comparison shopping sites, and ad search engines. This is not going to be easy. Third party market volume trends will drive value. But eBay has little control over this metric. Successful businesses have their hand on the steering wheel.
