PayPal assumed with a Buy at Jefferies

Jefferies analyst John Hecht assumed coverage of PayPal with a Buy rating and $98 price target. The company is best positioned to benefit from broad e-commerce and increasing mobile payments tailwinds, Hecht tells investors in a research note. He also believes Venmo monetization represents upside to his 2020 revenue and earnings estimates.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. PayPal (PYPL) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Kunaal Malde saying he believes the company's differentiated checkout experience should enable the company to continue taking share. 2. Verizon (VZ) and Charter (CHTR) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. 3. Terex (TEX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Stephen Volkmann saying Terex has underperformed both the S&P 500 Index and machinery peers year-to-date despite improving backlog and visibility into 2019. 4. AMC Entertainment (AMC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Benchmark with analyst Mike Hickey saying he believes the company's new movie subscription service will succeed in driving incremental attendance and EBITDA. 5. Becton Dickinson (BDX) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Robbie Marcus saying he sees a "clear path" for Becton to exceed expectations for the second half of 2018 and fiscal 2019 now that the Bard acquisition is two quarters in. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Equal Weight
Square downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Brett Huff downgraded Square (SQ) to Equal Weight from Overweight, telling investors in a research note that after a "truly remarkable" stock price acceleration over the past two years, he thinks Square is a "special" company, but is taking a breather and prefers PayPal (PYPL). Despite the downgrade, Huff says he "really likes" the business, as it has many growth opportunities including restaurants, larger merchants and growth from emerging products, as well as potential for compelling margins. Huff raised his price target for shares to $65 from $50 given a better growth outlook, as he now sees Q2 adjusted revenue of $361M from $357M vs. the Street's $361M, and raised his adjusted revenue outlook for 2018 to $1.483B from $1.448B and for 2019 to $2.128B from $2.019M.

Buy
PayPal price target raised to $98 from $88 at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Jason Kupfenberg raised his price target on PayPal to $98 and kept his Buy rating, citing his updated analysis of its Venmo business. The analyst notes that his the Pay With Venmo user experience study shows that the browser checkout process remains "somewhat clunky", awareness of the service remains "low", and PayPal users who are logged into the OneTouch setting are not offered PNW at checkout. Kupfenberg contends however that while patience toward a broader use of Venmo is required, he is positive on the company's recently announced new merchants and increased functionality, adding that the PWV adoption is still ahead of Venmo P2P at a similar stage.

Neutral
Square price target raised to $67 from $47 at Citi
Citi analyst Peter Christiansen raised his price target for Square (SQ) to $67 but keeps a Neutral rating on the name. Sqaure's momentum can be validated by PayPal's (PYPL) acquisition of iZettle and First Data's (FDC) emphasis on Clover, Christiansen tells investors in a research note. He believes the opportunity remains large, but thinks competition will begin to intensify as Square continues to push upmarket where distribution remains more relevant. Nevertheless, Square is a category leader in a space undergoing rapid innovation, Christiansen contends. He wants to see evidence of the company's upmarket competitiveness before getting more constructive on the shares.
