Why This Dot-Com Stock Is STILL A Good Investment

For example, PayPal will be facing intense competition from Checkout, the Internet payment system of Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN).

Action to Take--> From its beginnings as an online auction hub 17 years ago, eBay has morphed into one of the world's largest, most successful e-commerce companies. During the next three to five years, analysts project annual growth rates of 15% for sales and 18% for EPS. They also expect the stock to gain between 175% and 270% from the current price of around $31 per share.

I think these estimates are feasible because of eBay's size (it has a market capitalization of $39.8 billion), strong brand and reputation, global presence and demonstrated willingness to evolve. The stock doesn't pay a dividend and it can be very volatile, so be prepared for a bumpy ride. But if you're patient, you may have a chance at reliving the '90s by enjoying several years of good returns from this stock.
