What are analysts saying about PayPal Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PayPal Holdings stock:

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We believe management recognizes the drawbacks of Credit and is working toward a risk-reducing transaction. While the deal could take many forms, we think the most likely case is a JV whereby PYPL can sell a minority stake for a gain, still recognize 100% of the revenue, and take only a limited earnings hit (est -6% impact to 2018 EPS)." (2/17/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Earlier, PayPal announced the planned acquisition of TIO Networks, a Canadabased bill payment processor. The purchase price is $233M USD ($2.56 USD/ share), a 7% premium to today's closing price, with no expected impact to PYPL's guidance. We believe the acquisition is consistent with PYPL's plan to surround their core wallet with leveragable assets, and another example of strategic M&A driving increased user engagement/cross-sell." (2/15/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "PayPal is a worldwide online payments system operator. The company delivered decent fourth-quarter 2016 results, matching the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts. Results were driven by continued strong performance in global payments, both online and mobile. Currently, the company is riding high on partnerships and mobile centrism. PayPal’s ongoing strategic partnerships with Visa and MasterCard offer great flexibility and choice to consumers.  Partnerships with Facebook, Google, and Alibaba are also delivering positive results. Venmo continues to contribute significantly to the company’s mobile payment volume. However, continuous exposure to foreign exchange and interest rate risks is a concern. Over the last one year, the stock has underperformed the Zacks Internet - Software industry." (2/1/2017)

  • Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "PayPal delivered solid 4Q results that came in line with our and consensus estimates and were driven by robust growth in TPV and strength in key user metrics. Importantly, mgt's commentary suggests cost pressures from the rollout of the "Customer Choice" initiative are tracking within expectations with a higher-than-expected lift in engagement, which we view as a net positive for PayPal. We also view raised revenue growth for 2017 as a sign of management's growing confidence in its ability to sustain growth momentum in core registered in the last several quarters, buoyed by product extensions/introductions and partnerships. We remain constructive on PYPL and are maintaining our $48 PT." (1/23/2017)
  • Wedbush analysts commented, "We are assuming coverage with an OUTPERFORM rating and $54 PT (26x consensus CY18E adj. EPS). From a 'big-picture' perspective, we point to a host of growth/scale catalysts, including explosive transaction growth in the mobile payments space, incremental revenue growth from Xoom, and the ability to monetize its popular P2P engine (Venmo). We also believe that over time, given the recent agreements with Visa and MasterCard, PayPal will be able to scale and expand margins. We believe PYPL is well positioned to post 15-20% and 10-15% in revenue and adj. EPS growth, respectively, during the next few years." (1/20/2017)
