Yes, this mini-bubble.

It seems that eBay has announced a stock split.

EBay's stock has one of the highest valuations of any company in the United States -- far greater than Microsoft Corp. and other technology titans -- and it has remained impervious to the dot-com stock market bust. The stock's ascent this year, 71 percent, prompted eBay's board to announce a two-for-one split effective Aug. 28, for stockholders of record on Aug. 4.

Here we go again...

Sorry, I guess I really ought to explain myself. IBM (as well as many other companies) have recently decided to ship a fair amount of work overseas to places like Russia and India. Considering the "No Talking" email that was supposedly circulated earlier by eBay management, I only surmized that the above question was probably going through more than a few minds at the executive level.

Any hostility on my part would be directed to those who would make such a decision to abandon the people responsible for getting them to the position they're at today.
