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 delivered better-than-expected Q4 results on the back of new business wins for HCM software solutions. The company is gaining from steady revenue growth which is positively impacted by higher recurring revenues and higher traction in cloud-based offerings. Higher retention rate aided by mobile app adoption is a tailwind. 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 industry in the past year. Nevertheless, increasing competition from companies like ADP, Paylocity, Intuit and Paychex remain a headwind, which could lead to pricing pressure and affect Paycom’s margins. Moreover, higher R&D spends and longer sales cycle associated with the company's plan to move up-market is a concern." (2/7/2019) 2.
