There are a lot of reasons to like eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) today, but perhaps none more so than how well it positioned itself for a mobile world.
While many other tech companies are struggling to make money as traffic shifts from desktops to mobile devices, eBay is thriving. The company has found that mobile users are 3 to 4 times more valuable than their desktop counterparts, and the company's PayPal service is growing like wildfire and could redefine how people purchase goods. The combination of these two mobile-friendly divisions, coupled with a relatively low valuation compared to growth, and it looks like eBay is positioned to drive even higher.
