What are Wall Street analysts saying about Paycom Software stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paycom Software stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Paycom reported strong second quarter 2018 results and raised full year revenue guidance. Revenue growth seems to be steady and was positively impacted by higher recurring revenues and higher traction in cloud-based offerings. Better-than-expected demand for advanced human capital management and payroll software solutions during the reported quarter were the other positives. Going ahead, Paycom might witness long-term growth by successfully cross-selling newer products to the existing client base, which will boost revenues. Shares have outperformed the broader industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, increasing competition from companies like Paylocity Holding Corporation, Intuit and Paychex remains a headwind, which could lead to pricing pressure and affect Paycom’s margins." (8/3/2018)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We remain Overweight PAYC, as a unique cloud asset modernizing the payroll market, which gives the Company the opportunity to double revenue to $1B+ within four years while maintaining a best-in-class EBITDA margin of 40%+." (8/1/2018)
  • 3. Bank of America Corp analysts commented, "CSLT continues to face churn headwinds from legacy transparency customers. Management readily admits the market for standalone transparency solutions has eroded. Transparency-only customers now account for 23% of annualized recurring revenue (ARR). Management’s goal is to reduce that to less than 15% of total ARR by 4Q18. ARR stands at $157 million as of the end of 3Q17 and probably needs to reach about $165 million by the end of 4Q17 in order for the company to achieve our revised 2018 revenue estimate. In 3Q17, CSLT added 26 new customer logos, but lost 11 customers. More than half of new logos came from the Anthem Engage partnership. The company now has over 255 customers, including 80 Fortune 500 customers. Also, Engage is to become available next year to Anthem’s full-risk customers in California and Colorado, as well as to its national accounts business segment." (11/6/2017)
