What are analysts saying about Paycom Software stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Paycom Software stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Provider of cloud-based HCM software as a service solution, Paycom has outperformed the broader market over the last one year. The company reported outstanding first-quarter 2017 results and provided an encouraging second-quarter and fiscal 2017 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. Nevertheless, competition from companies likes Paylocity Holding Corporation, Intuit Inc. and Paychex, Inc. remains a headwind." (5/8/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We're raising our PT from $58 to $69 based on our DCF and expectations for higher FCF growth. In our view, PAYC is one of the best-positioned companies to capitalize on the significant opportunity for HCM/Payroll SaaS solutions (detailed in our separate industry report), given strong execution in its core SMB market, and strong op. leverage and cash flows. Core rev growth, ex. the ACA remains strong; regulatory changes will continue to be a long-term catalyst." (3/20/2017)
