| eBay engages in global commerce through its Marketplace platforms which connect buyers and sellers. The platforms include Co.'s online marketplace located at www.ebay.com and its localized counterparts, including off-platform businesses in Japan and Turkey, as well as suite of mobile apps. Co.'s platforms are accessible through an online experience, iOS and Android mobile devices and its application programming interfaces. Co. provides eBay Money Back Guarantee, which allows buyers to receive their money back if the item they ordered does not arrive, is faulty or damaged or does not match the listing. Co. also provides Authenticity Guarantee, which is an independent authentication service. The eBay YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the eBay YTD return page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the total return for a given investment year-to-date for the current calendar year
(up to the end of prior trading session). Arguably, choosing the current calendar year for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand a year-to-date look can be extremely
useful in the context of our country's tax system which taxes gains and income on a calendar year basis.
Thus, researching Year-To-Date Returns is good practice for investors — whether eBay YTD return or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's YTD return is
more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon. Our website aims to empower investors
by performing the EBAY YTD return calculation (with any dividends reinvested as applicable), and to provide a
coverage universe of many stocks and ETFs to be able to compare YTD returns.
