Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paylocity stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Paylocity’s Q3 top and bottom line surpassed the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate and marked year-over-year improvement as well. Outlook for Q4 and FY18 were also encouraging. We remain positive about Paylocity’s regular investments in SaaS technology. For the last few quarters, clients moving from traditional payroll service providers to the company’s SaaS-based services contributed significantly to its revenues. Hence, regular investments in technological upgrades, along with product innovation, will continue to boost the company’s top line. Also, higher adoption of Paylocity’s ACA dashboard application, specializing in tracking employee count, employee status and health care plan affordability, will act as a tailwind. Paylocity has outperformed the industry in the year-to-date period. However, competition in the payroll processing sector from new entrants as well as existing players remains a major headwind." (5/10/2018)

Recurring revenue (just subscriptions) could print ~$106-108mm, or up 24-27% Y/Y. We see ongoing conservatism in adj. EBITDA guidance; results could come in ~$33-35mm vs. consensus of $33mm and guidance of $32.3-33.3mm. We expect upside to EPS guidance of $0.45-0.47 as well.
