Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paylocity stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Paylocity is benefiting from higher recurring revenues. For the last few quarters,clients moving from traditional payroll service providers to the company’s SaaS based services contributed significantly to its revenues. Also, higher adoption of Paylocity’s ACA dashboard application, specializing in tracking employee count, employee status and health care plan affordability, is a tailwind. Shares have outperformed the industry in the year-to-date period. However, SaaS network infrastructure, which Paylocity mainly operates on, is prone to cyber threats and security breaches. Moreover, estimates have been going down ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release. The company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Also, competition in the payroll processing sector from new entrants as well as existing players remains a concern." (10/10/2018)

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.
