What are Wall Street analysts saying about Square stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Square stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Square reported impressive first quarter results wherein both earnings and revenues have reflected year over year growth on the back of strengthening gross payments volume. Moreover, strengthening relationship with sellers contributed well to the payment volume growth. Further, contributions from Weebly and Zesty buyouts continued to aid the top-line growth during the quarter. Also, product lines such as Square Terminal, Square Stand, Instant Deposits, Square Invoices, Cash Card, Square Register and Caviar performed well during the quarter. Further, growing adoption of Cash App in the bitcoin space remained a tailwind for Square’s business growth. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, higher investments and increasing product development expenses might hurt margins. Further, intensifying competition and foreign exchange fluctuations remain headwinds." (5/7/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Overweight rating on Square and our 12- month PT of $91. We are attracted to the company’s increasing market penetration, end-user growth and improving margin profile, driven by SG&A leverage and an increasing margin contribution from other services. Square reported results above expectations and issued 2019 revenue guidance below guidance. Gross Payment Volumes continued to have outsized growth in the period. We expect rapid growth to continue and foresee further margin expansion going forward, although our margin expectations have moderated. We expect these factors to drive the stock’s performance as the company continues to build out its ecosystem." (2/27/2019)
