eBay stock (NASDAQ: EBAY) has gained 3.4% in the last week, outperforming the S&P 500 (up 0.4%). However, the opposite trend was observed over the last ten days (-1.9% vs -1.8%) and one-month period (-8.7% vs -6.2%). Notably, the recent stock volatility was due to a drop in online sales because of the normalization of consumer behavior and tough macroeconomic conditions.

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 posted mixed results in the third quarter of 2023, with revenues topping the estimates but earnings missing the mark. The top line decreased 5% y-o-y to $2.4 billion, mainly due to an 8% decrease in international revenues. Further, the gross merchandise value (GMV) fell by 11% in the quarter. That said, the drop in GMV was somewhat offset by a 0.96% increase in the take rate (net transaction revenues divided by GMV). Overall, the net income decreased from $264 million to -$69 million.
