eBay stock (NASDAQ: EBAY) has lost 7.8% in the last week, underperforming the S&P 500 (down 6.2%). Further, the same trend was observed over the last ten days (-16% vs -11%) and one month period (-18% vs -13%). Notably, the recent stock market volatility was due to high inflation levels, aggressive interest rate hikes, and geopolitical tensions. The Fed has increased the interest rates five times in the year, with more hikes to follow. While it is aimed at taming inflation, it also has the potential to push the economy into recession.

The company operates an online marketplace “eBay.com”, where third-party buyers and sellers can transact in a variety of products (both new and used goods). It neither owns the inventory nor handles the shipping & handling of goods, making the business model asset light. While the firm’s net transaction revenues decreased 8% y-o-y in Q2 due to a drop in website traffic, it is to be noted that web traffic volume was at very high levels in 2021. We expect the revenues to continue to suffer over the subsequent quarters.

Now, is eBay stock set to drop further, or could we expect some recovery? We believe that there is a 73% chance of a rise in eBay stock over the next month (21 trading days) based on our machine-learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last ten years.
