PayPal to buy iZettle for $2.2B, Bloomberg reports

PayPal (PYPL) is acquiring Swedish small-business platform iZettle for $2.2B to expand in Europe and Latin America and bolster its presence in brick and mortar stores, Bloomberg reports. "Small businesses increasingly want a full suite of capabilities across channels, a one-stop stop," Dan Schulman, chief executive officer of PayPal, said in an interview. "iZettle was the perfect fit in many ways." The deal, the largest ever for PayPal, will help the company compete with Square (SQ), the report notes. Reference Link

PayPal assumed with a Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Eric Wasserstrom assumed coverage of PayPal Holdings and upgraded the shares to Buy from Neutral. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $90 from $83. PayPal will benefit from sustained volume growth given the growing engagement from merchants and consumers, Wasserstrom tells investors in a research note. He sees these trends driving positive revisions to consensus earnings.

PayPal investor day to serve as positive catalyst, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Bill Carcache expects PayPal's upcoming investor day to serve as a positive catalyst for the shares. The stock has range bound most of this year, as the benefit of positive earnings revisions has been largely offset by multiple compression that started when the company announced its eBay (EBAY) breakup at the end of January, Carcache tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for PayPal shares to $100 from $98 and thinks the investor day will reignite investor enthusiasm. Carcache keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Square app downloads growing faster than PayPal, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev says his firm's monthly app tracker shows Square (SQ) Cash App downloads are growing faster than PayPal's (PYPL) Venmo, with growth accelerating in recent months. In bitcoin, while Coinbase downloads are slowing versus peak, Square "remains balanced," Dolev tells investors in a research note titled "Tracker Shows SQ Cash App Is Surging." The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Square with a $65 price target.

Amazon poses a long-term risk to PayPal, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Harshita Rawat notes that Bloomberg reported that Amazon (AMZN) is offering discounts to merchants to adopt Amazon Pay. While the analyst sees limited "new news," he believes that Amazon poses a long-term, risk to PayPal (PYPL). Regarding impact on Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), Rawat does believe Amazon brings some risk of brand obfuscation, pricing pressure and yet another formidable payment wallet to contend with. However, the risk is more contained than is often perceived, he adds.

Square for Restaurants may be 'missing ingredients,' says Citi
After Square earlier today unveiled Square for Restaurants, a fully integrated point of sale system for the industry, Citi analyst Peter Christiansen said that it appears Square will have some hardware gaps or need to reply on third parties for some functionality. The analyst, who added that food and drink is likely Square's most important vertical, said that multi-vendor support for food delivery "could be the killer app for many independent restaurants," while noting that Square remains exclusive on delivery integration with Caviar. Christiansen keeps a Neutral rating on Square shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tableau (DATA) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at MUFG with analyst Stephen Bersey saying the company made "material progress" in its subscription transition during the first quarter, which depressed revenue and earnings in the quarter. 2. XO Group (XOXO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Sameet Sinha saying the company's "solid" Q1 results indicate an acceleration in revenue growth. 3. Square (SQ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying he views last night's Q1 results as "impressive," highlighting the 31% gross payment volume growth versus last year. 4. Yum! Brands (YUM) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird. 5. 3M (MMM) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying the 4-month decline in the stock price has taken its valuation to its historical relative PE support level.

Square should be bought on earnings selloff, says Jefferies
While lower margins is pressuring the shares, reinvesting in the business to drive "this magnitude of growth" is the right long term strategy for Square, Jefferies analyst Ramsey El-Assal tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He recommends buying the dip in Square shares following last night's Q1 results and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $60 price target.
