Stripe says ending Bitcoin support

Tom Karlo, Stripe's Product Manager, Payment Methods, said in a blog post: "At Stripe, we've long been excited about the possibilities of cryptocurrencies and the experimentation and innovation that's come with them. In 2014, we became the first major payments company to support Bitcoin payments. Our hope was that Bitcoin could become a universal, decentralized substrate for online transactions and help our customers enable buyers in places that had less credit card penetration or use cases where credit card fees were prohibitive. Over the past year or two, as block size limits have been reached, Bitcoin has evolved to become better-suited to being an asset than being a means of exchange. Given the overall success that the Bitcoin community has achieved, it's hard to quibble with the decisions that have been made along the way. This has led to Bitcoin becoming less useful for payments, however. Because of this, we've seen the desire from our customers to accept Bitcoin decrease. And of the businesses that are accepting Bitcoin on Stripe, we've seen their revenues from Bitcoin decline substantially. Empirically, there are fewer and fewer use cases for which accepting or paying with Bitcoin makes sense. Therefore, starting today, we are winding down support for Bitcoin payments. Over the next three months we will work with affected Stripe users to ensure a smooth transition before we stop processing Bitcoin transactions on April 23, 2018. Despite this, we remain very optimistic about cryptocurrencies overall." Reference Link

BTIG says sell Square after 'overdone' bitcoin-fueled rally
As previously reported, BTIG analyst Mark Palmer downgraded Square (SQ) to Sell from Neutral, as he believes the stock's valuation reflects "emphatic and unimpeded growth" but fails to factor in the risks facing the company from increasing competition from First Data's (FDC) Clover, Vantiv (VNTV) and others. Other concerns, such as macroeconomic and credit-related risks, "did not go away when some investors suddenly viewed its shares as a play on a trendy cryptocurrency" following the company's confirmation that it is testing allowing users to buy and sell bitcoin using its app, Palmer tells investors. He has a $30 price target on Square shares, which closed Friday at $48.86.

Standpoint raises 2018 bitcoin price target to $20,000 from $14,000
Standpoint Research analyst Ronnie Moas raised his 2018 price target for bitcoin to $20,000 from $14,000. The current price is around $10,720 and the split-adjusted price is now $12,740 when factoring in Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Diamond, Moas tells investors in an intraday email. There is "no way to justify" gold investments equaling 40 times than that of bitcoin, the analyst argues. He thinks an argument can be made that bitcoin will be equal to gold in 10-15 years. Currently, gold has $7T in investments to bitcoin's $180B, according to Moas.

Morgan Stanley says TD Ameritrade most likely discount broker to embrace bitcoin
Given recent regulatory approval and the upcoming launch of bitcoin futures trading on CME (CME) and CBOE (CBOE), Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys said he expects discount brokers including E-Trade (ETFC), TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Ally Financial (ALLY) to offer bitcoin futures trading within the next few months. Among them, he views TD Ameritrade as most likely to embrace bitcoin and lead the way and Charles Schwab (SCHW) as likely to be a latecomer. Cyprys added that he was surprised, given its status as a "challenger brand," that E-Trade has said it will take "a wait-and-see" approach.

Standpoint raises 2018 bitcoin price target to $28,000 from $20,000
Standpoint Research analyst Ronnie Moas this morning raised his 2018 price target for bitcoin to $28,000 from $20,000. Just over a week ago the analyst raised his 2018 target to $20,000 from $14,000. Moas points out that his longer term public target remains $50,000. He points out in an email that unlike the U.S. dollar, where the government can print money, the supply of bitcoin is capped. We are a couple of years away from being in a situation where hundreds of millions of people around the world are trying to get their hands on a few million bitcoin, Moas contends.

Piper ups Metropolitan Bank estimates on cryptocurrency exposure
Piper Jaffray analyst Matthew Breese raised his earnings estimates for Metropolitan Bank by 6% after the company detailed its exposure to a cryptocurrency exchange. Metropolitan's exposure to a cryptocurrency exchange averaged $245M in Q3, or 16% of total deposits, Breese tells investors in a research note. He estimate these items aggregate to 7% of net interest income and 9%-11% of earnings. Yesterday's disclosure is important on both the impact of earnings, the percentage of deposits tied to one customer, and that the bank has exposure to a "controversial industry," Breese tells investors in a research note. The analyst, despite raising his earnings estimates, keeps a Neutral rating on Metropolitan Bank shares with a $46 price target. He views the company's cryptocurrency exposure as a "double-edged sword for the stock." On the one hand, cryptocurrencies represent a "unique source of potential earnings growth" for Metropolitan, Breese writes. On the other, the volatility and potential regulatory concerns surrounding cryptocurrencies may cause some trepidation for traditional depository investors, the analyst adds.

Piper wonders if Microsoft is better than bitcoin
In a research note titled "Better Than Bitcoin?," Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin updated his investment thesis on Microsoft and formally rolled out estimates for 2019. Azure revenues are still growing close to triple digits and channel checks suggest that the company's pipeline of Office 365 remain robust, Zukin tells investors in a research note. He believes his investment thesis on the shares is resonating and reiterates an Overweight rating on Microsoft with a $115 price target. The software giant closed Friday up $1.08 to $88.19. The analyst calls Azure the "single largest growth opportunity" at Microsoft.
