Shares of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) took a hit today, selling off by 5% after the company reported a first-quarter earnings loss because of a tax charge this quarter. However, in this segment from Wednesday's MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Simon Erickson discuss the one part of eBay that they truly love.
The company's PayPal segment has shown transaction volume growth above 20% year over year every single quarter for the past 17 quarters. The guys discuss what they love about this business despite some competitive threats to PayPal that have been in the media recently, and they also talk about why the rest of eBay isn't nearly as thrilling.
