UBS analyst Kunal Madhukar downgraded eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY) from Buy to Neutral with a price target of $48.00 (from $60.00).

The analyst comments "We are downgrading EBAY to Neutral from Buy and lowering our price target to $48 from $60 previously. Expectations are low, with non-Focus categories declining and with Focus categories, which are doing better, comprising purely discretionary spend which could be disproportionately impacted in a downturn. Based on our analysis, we expect 2022 GMV to decline ~(17)% y/y below the guide of (16)-(14)% and Street at (15)%, and we think the buy side may already be lower than the Street. YTD, the stock has been one of the better performers within the eCommerce space, benefiting from both a ~2% dividend yield and aggressive share repurchases. However, when the market rebounds, we think EBAY shares could lag smaller cap peers (which are likely to grow much faster in a recovery) until investors have better visibility into organic growth at eBay. Consequently, we think the shares likely will remain range-bound until visibility improves."
