PayPal medium-term guidance removes overhang, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian noted PayPal reported Q3 results largely in-line with Street expectations, which reflected continuing positive trends driven by secular e-commerce growth and increasing market share. The analyst noted PayPal provided updated three-year financial targets that reflect efforts to gain incremental revenues and cost efficiencies to offset margin headwinds. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $48 price target on PayPal shares.

PayPal upgraded on growth outlook, multiple catalysts at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded PayPal to Buy from Hold.

He thinks that the risk facing the company has dropped significantly recently, and he has become more upbeat on its longer term outlook in light of recent events, including its deals with credit card networks. Devitt recommends aggressively buying the stock. Target $49.

Jefferies sees attractive entry points for Payments stocks
Payments stocks Visa (V), MasterCard (MA), PayPal (PYPL), Global Payments (GPN), Vantiv (VNTV) have been big underperformers since Election Day as investors rotate into core Financials, Jefferies analyst Jason Kupferberg tells investors in a research note. The corrections of up to 10% are not warranted fundamentally, the analyst contends. Kupferberg sees attractive entry points at current levels and highlights PayPal and Visa as his top picks.
