EBay (EBAY) is in no hurry to spin off Skype. Speaking Thursday morning at Sanford C. Bernstein's Strategic Decisions confab, eBay CEO John Donahoe said that while the IPO's stated timing is still on track, a delay would likely only benefit eBay and Skype. In a new research note, Bernstein analyst Jeffrey Lindsay agrees, saying "Skype is now worth more than it was a year ago, and will be worth more a year from now than it currently is."
