A Nomura note predicting higher card fees for PayPal (previous) helped eBay (EBAY -0.6%) make fresh 2013 lows. "Payment networks are taking the gloves off," writes Nomura. With PayPal's rapid growth and offline expansion efforts making it a bigger rival to Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), "the incumbents will do everything in their power to prevent PayPal from riding on their rails without extracting a toll."
