In a salvo aimed at Amazon and shipping partner UPS, eBay (EBAY) is teaming up with FedEx (FDX) to give merchants the ability to print FedEx labels at home at rates discounted as much as 37%. eBay is also partnering with Pitney Bowes (PBI) to provide international tracking and duty rate estimates. 40% of eBay sellers already use its label-printing services, and 50% of Q3 sales involved free shipping - any cost savings for such deals will boost a seller's bottom line. eBay's Q3 sold items were up 19% Y/Y, lifted by growing mobile activity.

    I thought Wall Street had decided that PBI was dead, buried and had already had a funeral?

    Hey Mike,

     

    Wall Street may feel that way ..... but PBI has been transitioning to advanced digital services for the past several years. Its in their 5 year strategic plan. With their 10+% dividend, which PBI has been increasing their dividends for 30 consecutive years, their strong cash flow and a great management team , in my opinion its a hidden gem .
