eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY) is in the news again, and not because of Carl Icahn or Marc Andreessen.

This time Colin Sebastian, analyst at Baird, points out potential accretive benefits of a deal between eBay and Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) in the range of 40 to 50 percent.

Sebastian believes a eBay/Google deal would be a better strategic alternative to Icahn's proposed PayPal spinoff.

Google could secure a leadership position in commerce and payments by purchasing eBay, said Sebastian.

Baird has an Outperform rating on both eBay and Google with $65 and $1350 price targets respectively.

Shares of eBay are up 0.78 percent to $57.20 while shares of Google are 1.3 percent to $1189 in Monday's trading.
