NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Giving one of the first glimpses into how the consumer space performed during the fourth quarter, eBay (EBAY - Get Report) topped analysts' estimates after Wednesday's closing bell.
During the quarter, the online giant earned 60 cents per share on revenue of $3.4 billion. Wall Street was calling for a profit of 57 cents per share on revenue of $3.32 billion.
There were some areas of softness, as its first-quarter revenue forecast and full-year EPS guidance fell short of consensus estimates. Gross merchandising volume was also a bit light during the quarter.
The stock was last quoted at $31.24, up 4.1%, on after-hours volume of 2.3 million, according to Nasdaq.com.-Reported by Jeanine Poggi in New York. Follow TheStreet.com on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook.
