What are Wall Street analysts saying about PayPal stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PayPal stock:
  • 1. 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." (5/28/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PayPal’s top-line is likely to get hurt as a result of eBay’s partnership discontinuation and selection of Adyen as its new primary payment processor. Notably, eBay accounts for 13% of PayPal’s total payment volume (TPV), thereby contributing a major portion to its total revenues. Moreover, continuous exposure to foreign exchange rate fluctuations and interest rate risks remain a concern. Further, rising competition in the global payment industry might affect the market position of the company. However, ongoing strategic partnerships of PayPal with Visa and MasterCard offer great flexibility to the customers and this remain positive. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (4/20/2018)
