eBay Inc. (NASDAQ:EBAY) is an American multinational e-commerce corporation that facilitates consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer sales through its website. EBAY connects millions of buyers and sellers around the world through its online auction and shopping website making it one of the world's largest marketplaces. At last glance, EBAY was trading down 0.8% at $63.84.

Regarding the stock, eBay has increased about 14% year-over-year and is trading up 23% since its 52-week low of $51.51. However, shares of eBay stock have declined 3% year-to-date and are currently down 21% from its record high of $81.19. eBay also offers a forward dividend of $0.72 with a dividend yield of 1.08%.

EBAY is slated to release earnings on Tuesday, Feb. 1, with Wall Street analysts projecting that the ecommerce giant will report earnings $1.00. Moreover, eBay’s fundamentals offer investors a mixed bag. eBay stock has a decent forward price-earnings ratio of 15.11, but EBAY currently trades at an elevated price-sales ratio of 3.92, seemingly indicating that the ecommerce company’s biggest issue is its top line.

EBAY also holds a relatively good balance sheet with $14.56 billion in cash and $9.31 billion in total debt, making eBay stock a decent option for value investors, with the ecommerce company seemingly placing its efforts on increasing profits margins.

From a contrarian point of view, eBay stock looks ripe for upgrades. Heading into today's trading, 12 of the 18 covering brokerage firms sport a tepid "hold" recommendation.

 What's more, EBAY's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at a high 91 out of 100. In other words, the security has exceeded options traders' volatility expectations over the past year.
