Analysts at Credit Suisse have high expectations for eBay Inc  heading into the company's second-quarter earnings report on July 20. The firm's Paul Bieber maintains an Outperform rating on eBay's stock with an unchanged $44 price target, saying the company is a "rare value story" with multiple paths toward value creations.

EBay is expected to earn $0.45 per share in the second quarter on revenue of $2.30 billion, which is mostly in line with the Street's consensus estimate of $0.45 per share and $2.31 billion, Bieber noted in a research report .
