We discussed “The Peter Lynch Methodology? (Not so fast) [1]” in December of last year.

Thanks to the diligent work of Ernie the Attorney [2] (how can you not love a blog with that name?), I was reminded that I needed to finish updating that piece.

Ernie (who has an interesting blog [3]), observes that “eBay is a hot growth company.” Ernie and his wife have discovered how easy it is to post items for sale on eBay, clearing out their old Books, DVDs and CDs. He bought some eBay stock over a year ago, and its up nicely. Since he’s sitting on a nice profit, I hope Ernie won’t mind if I use his comments for instructional purposes.

I expanded this into a full column [4] at The Street.com [5]. . .
