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 is currently suffering from intensifying competition and changing technology in the online payment space. Further, higher investments and increasing product development expenses pose serious risk to the company’s profitability. Also, the company has large amount of accumulated deficit which is a major concern and poses threat to its margin expansion. However, its entry into bitcoin space remains positive for the business growth. Further, strengthening relationships with existing sellers along with growing number of larger sellers on the platform with the help of Square Register are expected to gross payment volume of the company. Notably, shares of Square have outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. But, Square remains highly exposed to foreign exchange fluctuations." (7/3/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Overweight rating on Square and raise our 12-month PT to $69 from $51. 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 updated guidance for the projected impact from the recently acquired the recent issuance of convertible debt. We expect rapid growth to continue and foresee further margin expansion going forward, driving stock performance." (6/1/2018)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Threat, Weak 2Q18 EPS Guidance and Lofty Valuation While Square (SQ) today after the market close released a 1Q18 report featuring the company’s latest quarterly adjusted EBITDA beat and full- year guidance raise in terms of net and adjusted revenue and adjusted earnings per share, the initial reaction of SQ shares was to move lower. We believe that apparent disconnect can be attributed to three primary factors, with a fourth factor perhaps having some impact as well.   First, less than two hours before SQ released its 1Q18 report the payment space was shaken by a media report that Amazon (AMZN, Not Rated) in an effort to expand adoption of its online payments service, Amazon Pay, had offered to pass through the discounts it receives on credit-card swipe fees to other retail merchants. The report emerged just days after SQ announced its acquisition of Weebly, a website creation platform, which the company framed as part of its effort to push from in-person payments to omnichannel commerce. In that regard, a more robust push by AMZN into the online payments space is bound to be viewed as a potential headwind for SQ, in our view." (5/3/2018)
