Inflation Proof Plays

$EBAY had been a somewhat stagnant player in the e-commerce realm for the past few years, but it sprang back to life this past year amid a sudden interest in e-commerce during the coronavirus pandemic and a new CEO that took over in April 2020. The share price doubled from around $30 to $60.

On Feb. 3, 2021, eBay released its fiscal fourth-quarter 2020 results for the quarter ending December 2020. The Company reported earnings-per-share (EPS) profit of $0.86 excluding non-recurring items versus consensus analyst estimates for a profit of $0.83, beating estimates by $0.03. Revenues rose 28.3% year-over-year (YoY) to $2.87 billion versus $2.71 billion. The Company raised its quarter dividend to $0.18 per-share and expanded its share buyback program by an additional $4 billion.

Upside Guidance eBay also issued upside guidance for Q1 2021 with EPS in the range of $1.03 to $1.08 versus $0.86 consensus analyst estimates. The Company guided Q1 2021 revenues in the range of $2.94 billion to $2.99 billion compared to the $2.54 billion consensus analyst estimates.

Despite the strong seen in recent quarters the company still trades at a of 15 P/E and fwd PE of 13. But what I find most compelling about this company is the amount of value they return to shareholders in the form of buybacks with the share count coming down from 1.1bn to under 700m. This frantic buyback program is sustianable given the P/E and allows for a great return to investors.

In this current enviroment of inflation having a % fee is a powerful tool in order to sustain the business in the long term.
