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 continues to benefit from growing gross payments volume. The company’s seller ecosystem, which helps in strengthening relationship with sellers, is contributing significantly to the payment volume growth. Further, robust Square Terminal, Instant Deposits, Cash Card, Square Register and Square Capital continue to drive the top line. Further, growing adoption of Cash App in the bitcoin space remains a major positive. We believe the company’s solid momentum across sellers and strong product portfolio is likely to continue aiding performance in the near term. However, higher investments and increasing product development expenses might hurt margins. Further, intensifying competition and foreign exchange fluctuations remain woes. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to in the past year." (1/9/2020)
  • 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)
