Eric Jackson, manager of technology-focused hedge fund EMJ Capital, tells Ronald Orol on Activist Investing Today he thinks eBay should use cash on hand — and proceeds from expected unit sales — to make its own acquisitions.

"If we learned one thing out of the 2008 financial crisis as we look back, it's that even in the grips of the worst parts of that crisis, say spring of 2009, and even after that, that nadir in the stock market, what it did is it froze up a lot of company boards that didn’t want to do M&A," he says.
