PayPal Q3 results could be positive catalyst, says Jefferies

Jefferies analyst Jason Kupferberg believes PayPal's Q3 results on October 20 would be a positive catalyst for the shares. The analyst expects a "solid" quarter and still views PayPal as the best way to play digital/online payments. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $48 price target.

PayPal downgraded to Hold from Buy at Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Michael Graham downgraded PayPal (PYPL) to Hold following the sharp rally in shares following the Visa deal in July. The analyst expects TPV growth to remain solid driven by Venmo and One Touch, but said these factors are well understood and reflected in estimates. Graham expects higher funding mix-driven transaction expenses from the Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) deals to pressure margins and earnings growth modestly and lowered his price target to $40 from $45 on PayPal shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. PayPal (PYPL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Canaccord with analyst Michael Graham saying he expects TPV growth to remain solid driven by Venmo and One Touch, but said these factors are well understood and reflected in estimates. 2.

Caterpillar (CAT) downgraded to Mixed from Positive at OTR Global with the firm saying third quarter global new heavy equipment orders are down 8%-11% year-over-year on weakness in North American. 4. Western Union (WU) downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he is concerned about downside risks given the company's high multiple, increased regulatory scrutiny, and the lack of improvement in its Middle East business. 5. Campbell Soup (CPB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Market Perform
Bernstein lays out six possible strategic outcomes for PayPal
After hosting a call to discuss PayPal's (PYPL) strategic options following its recently announced deals with Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), Bernstein analyst Lisa Ellis laid out the potential strategic outcomes for PayPal that she foresees. In order from most to least likely: the most likely outcome PayPal's business model remains but that it shifts to debit centric vs. ACH; it is less likely, but a risk, that PayPal becomes a merchant acquirer; even less likely is that PayPal becomes a closed-loop. The chance that PayPal is acquired is "unlikely but less so" after the deals with the card majors, Ellis added. Lastly, she sees a "low probability" PayPal withers away or that it morphs into something else via acquisition. The firm has a Market Perform rating on PayPal shares.
