Ratio call spreads in Ebay ahead of earnings

Ratio call spreads in Ebay ahead of earnings. The stock up 41c to $34.13 and 10K Apr 30 calls sold at $4.70 to buy 15K Apr 35 calls for $1.50. Apr 30 calls are $4.13 in-the-money and represent the largest open interest block in Ebay, with 41.2K open. Therefore, the sale today probably closes some positions opened in November or December (notable buying on 12/21 for $1.28 to 1.48 with shares $26.40) and now a new position opened in upside Apr 35 calls. In other words, long calls rolled up five strikes to OTM from ITM, while increasing position size, and the vote of confidence comes ahead of a profit report tomorrow afternoon. Shares saw a large move in the year earlier period, gaining 13.8% to $46.19 on 2/1/18 - average daily earnings move over the past eight quarters is 6%.

Outperform
eBay should consider going private, says Baird
As previously reported last night, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian kept his Outperform rating and $39 price target on eBay after the announcement of an activist stake by Elliott Management, saying the main points of the fund's letter are "worthy of the board's review". In addition to considering unlocking the value of StubHub/ Classifieds, refocusing the core marketplace, and reallocating expenses, the analyst contends that the company should mull "go-private options" to help execute a restructuring without the scrutiny that comes with being a public entity. Benedict further states that eBay has "enormous opportunity outside of retail" to differentiate itself, adding that the review could provide further potential catalysts. This note corrects a prior version that incorrectly listed Peter Benedict as the analyst who covers eBay at Baird.

Outperform
eBay price target raised to $44 from $40 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on eBay to $44 and kept his Outperform rating ahead of it s Q4 results, saying that he expects sales to come in line and for the management to focus on the latest proposal from Elliott to review its StubHub/Classifieds businesses. The analyst is also concerned that adverse FX environment may result in gross merchandise volume underperforming expectations, but remains positive on eBay's "fundamental story" and expects "revenue growth to outpace GMV growth driven by Promoted Listings, Payments, and Classifieds."

Hold
Elliott plan for eBay would be hard to achieve, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill says that while he agrees with the Elliott Management proposals for eBay, he believes the plan will be hard to achieve as revenue acceleration will take investment. Investors are looking for more, particularly what it would take to become a strong number player and whether eBay can catch up with growth leaders, Thill tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Hold rating on the shares with a $32 price target.
