2014 was already going to be a transition year for eBay. The online auction service fended off Carl Icahn's attempt to force it to sell its key Paypal asset.

The stock is down nine percent this year, and nearly four percent over the last 12 months, making our Chart of the Day one that aspires to a better future.
