What are Wall Street analysts saying about Paypal stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paypal stock: 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Overweight rating on PayPal and PT of $122. We attended its Analyst gathering in NYC on 4/30 4pm. Our takeaway is PYPL is starting to fire on a lot of cylinders (prob. more new ones to come), as the company is finding a way to expand its avenues of growth while expanding its margins." (5/1/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PayPal’s portfolio strength remains its key growth driver. Venmo’s improving monetization efforts and its increasing adoption rate across various platforms are aiding the company’s user base. Further, strong momentum of the company in international markets, especially in India and Japan remains a major positive. Also, accelerating transaction revenues are driving the top-line growth. Additionally, rising active customer accounts, owing to contributions by acquisitions of Hyperwallet and iZettle continues to act as a tailwind. Also, strategic partnerships are expected to continue aiding business growth of PayPal. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, weak eBay performance and challenging macroeconomic environment in China and the UK induced the issuance of a lower-than-expected revenue guidance for Q1. This remains a concern."
