NEW YORK ( Minyanville) -- Five years ago, Amazon ( AMZN) stock was worth about $30 per share. Now it's above $190. Five years ago, eBay ( EBAY) shares were a little below $40. Now they trade around $36. You probably know many of the reasons why Amazon is (again) beloved by investors, while eBay is still stuck in a no-man's-land of investor discontent. There's no shortage of investor analysis and chatter about both companies' strengths and weaknesses. But there's one key piece of information that seems to have been overlooked, and to me it seems essential. That is: Which one is a better place to shop?
