Is eBay on the decline?

As Groupon's business takes off, online auction giant struggles to grow revenue

Once companies go corporate, there's usually no turning back.

All that being said, eBay shares (NASDAQ: EBAY) have gained 25 percent this year. However, if you go further back -- to, say, the beginning of 2006 -- you're looking at a 32 percent decline in share value. Not as bad as Yahoo (down 58 percent), but a lot worse than Microsoft, whose shares basically have tread water over the same time period.

Do you think Jackson's assessment of eBay is on the mark? Let me know with a comment below.
