    "Stocks are really attractive right now," says Oakmark's Bill Nygren. Investors are significantly overpaying for safety and income, and that is giving us value where investors are willing to step up and take some risk. The companies he likes are focusing on investment to grow EPS faster than they grow earnings - largely through stock buybacks - rather than paying out cash flow through higher dividends. Some favorites of his: Capital One (COF), Comcast (CMCSA), Oracle (ORCL) and Ebay (EBAY). (video)

    What's the best offense in this kind of market? A cyclical defense, says Baker Avenue's Doug Couden. Rather than sticking to the traditional favorites like consumer staples or utilities, which in the present environment are exposed to currency risk and higher input costs, he recommends looking at technology and oil service sector names where profit streams are more defensible. His picks: Ebay (EBAY +0.9%), Qualcomm (QCOM -0.4%), Schlumberger (SLB -0.7%) and Haliburton (HAL -0.6%). ( Video )

    Groupon (GRPN +8.3%) and eBay (EBAY +2.7%) rally in the wake of Amazon's market-pleasing Q2 report. Amazon's strong sales of 3rd-party merchandise, much of which is sold by small businesses, might be especially going over well. Groupon is heavily shorted, and has been bludgeoned in recent weeks on a litany of worries, as well as poor analyst commentary.

    An upgrade to Overweight from JPMogran is helping eBay (EBAY +2.7%) rally on a down day, and add to yesterday's big post-earnings gains. Though eBay is up 45% YTD, JPMorgan sees additional gains thanks to growing retail partnerships for all 3 of the company's main businesses - Marketplaces, PayPal, and GSI Commerce -  and its strong mobile footprint.

    A modest Q2 beat and in-line guidance are enough to send eBay (EBAY +8.5%) to 6-year highs. PayPal's performance is in focus, as is eBay's growing mobile presence: The company predicts both PayPal and Marketplaces will handle $10B in mobile transactions this year, above prior estimates of $7B and $8B. Needham is pleased with eBay's rising margins and strong merchandise volumes, and thinks guidance could be conservative. AMZN +3.1%. OSTK +2.3%. MELI +1.5%. (transcript)

    While eBay (EBAY) reports another strong quarter for PayPal, David Pogue reports Square, whose mobile card readers have become wildly popular, has convinced 75K merchants to support an app-based payments solution called Pay With Square. PWS allows a user to pay for an item by opening a tab using a phone app, and then simply stating his/her name to a cashier using the Square Register iPad app. PayPal has announced something similar, but it's still in the early stages, and is aimed at larger businesses.

    Is eBay (EBAY +2.8%) setting up for an earnings beat when it reports after market close today? ChannelAdvisor thinks it's a distinct possibility as it notes that Wall Street analysts may have missed a key point from eBay marketplace president Devin Wenig when he said back in mid-June that eBay's active user growth was accelerating in double digits in Q2.

    PayPal (EBAY) has acquired card.io, provider of technology that allows developers to scan credit-card info using a phone's camera. Card.io's solutions have gained a following due to their ease-of-use relative to manually inputting CC data on a phone - Google can vouch for consumer unease with the latter. PayPal, which recently launched a mobile card reader, handled nearly $4B worth of mobile payments last year, and is shooting for $8B this year.

    Groupon (GRPN) CEO Andrew Mason moonlights as a maitre d' at a Chicago Japanese restaurant. The reason? Mason wants to understand the challenges Groupon's thousands of daily deals partners face, and in doing so help his company develop what he calls an "operating system for local commerce," one that covers a variety of sales, booking, marketing, and payment-processing services. Google has similar ideas, and there's also PayPal (EBAY) and Square to contend with.

    Six states presently collect sales taxes on Amazon (AMZN) purchases, and another seven plan to begin within the next few years. Many more could soon announce plans, as Republican governors looking to balance budgets join Democratic counterparts in supporting the concept. Four states with Republican governors - New Jersey, Nevada, Virginia, and Texas - have struck tax-collection deals with Amazon, and other such as Florida could soon be on the way. (also)
