Since November 2012, eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) stocks have wavered between an approximate 20% range, which indicates that there has been a relatively stable amount of buying and selling activity.

Even though 2014 had some difficulties for eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY), during the fourth quarter, things picked up for the company, allowing it to end the year in an excellent way with mobile continuing to be a major contributor to the company’s volume of commerce.
“In a year of unexpected events and distractions, we ended 2014 with double-digit revenue growth, solid earnings growth and strong cash flow, reflecting the fundamental strengths of our company. PayPal had another strong quarter, finishing an excellent year,” said John Donahoe, president and CEO of eBay Inc.
In the fourth quarter, PayPal’s revenue rose 9%, as it managed to add 5 million users during the holiday season and now has approximately 162 million active users, with eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) having 155 million active users of its own.
“We are on the right strategic path, and we’re acting decisively and aggressively as we position eBay and PayPal for success. We’re sharpening our strategic focus and streamlining our cost structure and our portfolio, and we’re creating operating agreements that preserve both synergies and strategic flexibility,” John Donahoe stated during the company’s 2014 fourth quarter earnings conference call.
