    eBay is one of the net's four horsemen, ushering in a spate of online earnings after the bell today, and coming a week ahead of Yahoo (next Tuesday); Amazon (next Wednesday); and Google (next Thursday.) So eBay's earnings will put the entire sector under the spotlight.

  • AMD Update: Losses Stemmed But It's Still In The Red Thursday, 17 Jan 2008 | 5:14 PM ET

    It's not often that I'm thrown for a loop when a company reports earnings. But when the headline number from Advanced Micro Devices crossed the wires as a loss of $3.06 a share, my eyes nearly popped. Where's the charge coming from? What's the problem here? What did we all miss?
