PayPal price target raised to $54 from $45 at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Jason Deleeuw raised his price target for PayPal (PYPL) to $54 saying easing currency headwinds will complement "continued solid" U.S. and international digital payment volume trends. The bar for the company's Q2 results has been raised given PayPal's "significant short-term share outperformance and premium valuation" to Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), Deleeuw tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on PayPal citing long-term competitive risks.

PayPal price target raised to $70 from $54 at Monness Crespi
After conducting checks, Monness Crespi analyst James Cakmak raised his price target on PayPal (PYPL) . He says that the market is failing to appreciate the boost to PayPal's margins that its Pay with Venmo product will bring. The analyst also expects PayPal to make an international deal with Alphabet's (GOOG,GOOGL) Android and he thinks that its newly announced deal with Apple (AAPL) "diminishes competitive risks."

Apple adding PayPal as payment option is significant, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Tien-tsin Huang says Apple (AAPL) adding PayPal (PYPL) as a payment option, as announced last night by PayPal COO Bill Ready in a blog post, is significant as it provides "yet another example of a payment foe," in this case Apple Pay, choosing to work with PayPal as a payment partner. The analyst admits that it is difficult to size the deal. He has an Overweight rating on PayPal. The stock in premarket trading is up 63c to $55.39.

PayPal should acquire Square, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Joseph Vafi believes PayPal (PYPL) over the next several years should look to maximize Venmo monetization opportunities, extend its reach in brick and mortar retailers and stem transaction margin deterioration. An acquisition of Square (SQ) helps check all of the boxes, Vafi tells investors in a research note. Such an acquisition also fits with PayPal's vision of transforming itself into a "true, two-sided network," the analyst adds. He believes the company can offer to buy Square at a greater than 30% premium "without too much stretch to its balance sheet." Vafi has a Hold rating on PayPal with a $49 price target and does not formally cover Square.

Deutsche Bank raises price targets for Visa, MasterCard
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Keane raised his price target for Visa (V) to $122 from $103 and for MasterCard (MA) to $150 from $124. The analyst believes push payments have the potential to contribute an incremental 5% to net revenue growth for both companies over the next five years and help drive 20%-plus annual earnings growth. He reiterates Buy ratings on both stocks with a preference for Visa over MasterCard. Push payments, also known as buyer-initiated payments or straight through processing, "ride the network rails and hence offer all the benefits of card payments with more security as the payer pushes funds instead of the payee pulling funds from an account," Keane explains.

Oppenheimer bullish on Visa, MasterCard ahead of results
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene reiterates Outperform ratings for MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) and $120 and $95 price targets, respectively, heading into results. The analyst is encouraged by "solid" January intra-quarter volume growth, improving gas price trends, strong retail sales growth, and broadly positive card issuer trends. Further, Greene continues to believe that MasterCard and Visa are attractive at current levels, given their defensible market positions and strong long-term prospects. Nonetheless, he prefers Visa relative to MasterCard at present given the continuing U.S. volume boost from the Costco (COST)/USAA wins and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) Sapphire Reserve momentum, apparent conservative guidance, and Visa Europe accretion benefits.
