What are Wall Street analysts saying about Paypal stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paypal stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PayPal reported second quarter results wherein both earnings and revenues have reflected impressive year over year growth. The company continued to witness expanding customer base with help of its robust Venmo, Choice and One Touch. Also, the company’s tie-up with MasterCard aided the adoption rate of Venmo. Further, the company’s ongoing partnership with ShinhanCard remained positive throughout the quarter and aided its presence in South Korea. Also, its extended partnership with Google and eBay will continue to strengthen its customer base further. This will keep adding strength to PayPal’s total payments volume. We believe an expanding product & services portfolio and global presence will continue to benefit the company’s market share. Notably, shares of PayPal have outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, exposure to foreign exchange and intensifying competition are major concerns." (8/7/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "the headline takeaway from PayPal Holdings’ (PYPL, Day held earlier today in San Francisco was management’s call for revenue growth to be sustained at strong levels and for non-GAAP earnings per share growth to accelerate over the next 3-5 years, the company provided plenty of other newsy items during the course of an almost five-hour presentation in support of their bullish forecast. With that said, a modest rally in PYPL shares during today’s trading session that picked up steam after CFO John Rainey announced management’s medium-term forecast sputtered into the close, a lackluster reaction to the bullish commentary. We believe the stock’s tepid response to good news could be attributed in large part to the fact that its shares trade at 16.9x FY20E adjusted EBITDA – a valuation that already reflects lofty growth expectations."
