    • Replacing Live Nation's Ticketmaster (NYSE:LYV), eBay's (NASDAQ:EBAY) StubHub has won a 6.5 year revenue-sharing deal to resell tickets for the New York Yankees.
    • The move ends a long standoff between the two companies, which had previously been at odds over a price floor for tickets.
    • Reports suggested the deal was worth around $100M, but a StubHub spokesman said the value of the agreement was "definitely not that high."

    • "We think investors often overlook StubHub's potential to unlock or add value," says Benchmark's Daniel Kurnos, reiterating his Buy rating and $29 price target (vs. current $24.60) on eBay (EBAY +0.1%).
    • StubHub, he says, has quietly build a dominant market share position, and is now in process of expanding internationally (just 2% of revenue comes from overseas).
    • Whie TicketMaster could provide a big competitive challenge, it won't matter as much as investors currently expect, says Kurnos, as StubHub will eventually be monetized either through a sale of IPO.

    • "I'd rather have a billion unique items that arrive in three days than a billion commodity items that arrive in an hour."
    • Wenig also added that eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) is looking at opportunities to bring together e-commerce and artificial intelligence.

    • RIght now, the chance of an affirmative vote in the Brexit referendum is looking mighty slim, so it's hard to imagine much of an edge here. Nevertheless, the team at JPMorgan has identified 22 U.S. stocks with the highest U.K. exposure as a percent of revenue. These names would thus theoretically benefit from a "Remain" vote.

    • EBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) is off 2.8% following some cautious rumblings from Morgan Stanley, which has downgraded shares to Underweight amid worries about the company's international marketplaces.
    • The firm trimmed its price target on shares to $22.50; shares closed yesterday at $25.31.
    • The International marketplaces make up about 60% of total gross merchandise value and 44% of total revenues. But Alphawise survey data suggests more than 60% of consumers in the UK and German don't plan to shop on eBay in 2016, vs. about 20% a year ago.

    • Nine days after pricing an offering of 6% notes due 2056, EBAY is selling $750M worth of 2.5% senior notes due 2018, and $750M worth of 3.8% senior notes due 2022. The company only says proceeds will be used for "general corporate purposes, which may include capital expenditures, share repurchases, repayment of indebtedness and possible acquisitions." (Press Release)
    • There's a good chance some of the funds will be deployed towards buybacks: $1.1B was spent on buybacks in 2H15, and eBay had $1.8B remaining on its authorization at the end of 2015.
    • eBay had $8.5B in cash/investments (much of it offshore) at the end of 2015 to go with $6.8B in debt.
