What are Wall Street analysts saying about Paylocity stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paylocity stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Paylocity’s fiscal fourth quarter top-line was driven by 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. Hence, regular investments in SaaS technology, technological upgrades, and 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, 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. Also, competition in the payroll processing sector from new entrants as well as existing players remains a concern." (8/14/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect total revenue around $111-113mm (+23-25% Y/Y) vs. guidance of $110-111mm and consensus of $111mm. 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.
