EBay higher with Icahn rumors in the background

Shares of ebay (EBAY +4.6%) move higher on a volume spike.

Idle chatter linking Carl Icahn to the tech giant appears to have tempted some buyers.

No stake by Icahn has been reported yet.

    Let me guess, Icahn tweeted that he bought something off ebay?

    lol Probably was tweeting that he bought something on EBay but his iPhone auto corrected it to say he bought EBay. Anyway I went long EBay, sure hope he confirms he bought a ton of shares.

    Icahn figured out he can get his depends undergarments cheaper on eBay. Too bad he doesn't know the Chinese knockoffs will leak leading to a huge public humiliation

    Icahn used Siri on his Iphone (Nuance software) to buy something off Ebay, most likely some Geritol

    After you're done making jokes at Icahn's expense, let's compare your and his net worth really quick. We'll see who'll be laughing last ....

    One thing all Icahn's money CAN'T buy is the 40+ years I have on him in terms of youth. I'm sure he'd fork over anything to be in his 30's again.
