bearish
In eBay CFO Bob Swan's words "The combination of the cyberattack and the Google SEO had an immediate and dramatic impact on GMV growth. June GMV growth was 7% driven by slower active buyer growth and lower conversion." which means earnings was not good enough. Also eBay was not hit by Google Panda but by a manual update... Is payapal growth alone good enough for ebay??
