Jefferies says PayPal more than just Venmo, ups price target to $110

Jefferies analyst John Hecht raised his price target for PayPal Holdings (PYPL) to $110 from $100 saying the company's growth story is more than just Venmo. The stock closed yesterday up 64c to $90.61. While Venmo is an important growth driver, PayPal's core person-to-person business and mobile trends, which have been "impressive," should be followed more closely alongside the Venmo success, Hecht tells investors in a research note. The analyst's updated analysis supports his belief that the eBay (EBAY) migration should be "very manageable" for PayPal. Further, his analysis of app downloads shows PayPal platforms "remain competitive." Hecht reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

MasterCard price target raised to $240 from $215 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey raised his price target on MasterCard to $240 and kept his Buy rating, saying the company is demonstrating expansion of global market share while posting a 14% Q2 volume growth. The analyst adds that while MasterCard has a higher valuation than PayPal (PYPL) and Visa (V) - a 10% relative EBITDA premium - it is justified and may even be too narrow given its superior growth sustainability and margin upside.

Square Cash App surpassed PayPal's Venmo for first time in July, says Nomura
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Square (SQ) to $86 from $82 after his firm's July payments app tracker showed cumulative Square Cash App downloads surpassed PayPal's (PYPL) Venmo for the first time. Cash App downloads in July of 33.5M marked the highest monthly addition on record, Dolev tells investors in a research note. The analyst says the Square Cash App is growing three times faster than Venmo. He keeps a Buy rating on Square shares.

Baird raises PayPal price target to $99 on favorable Venmo outlook
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian raised his price target for PayPal (PYPL) to $99 from $96 to reflect a favorable view of Venmo's monetization opportunity. The shares closed yesterday up 43c to $87.38. A survey of 1,500 Internet users spotlights PayPal as the "clear and dominant digital wallet," and serves as a positive leading indicator for "Pay with Venmo" adoption, Sebastian tells investors in a research note titled "Beyond the Pizza Emoji: Assessing Venmo's Profit Potential." He believes Venmo may be approaching native wallet levels like Apple's (AAPL) ApplePay. While still early, PayPal's dual-brand strategy could reasonably contribute $150M-$300M incrementally to 2021 operating profit and potentially more, Sebastian contends. He believes Venmo is on track to become a billion-dollar business. Sebastian says that while Venmo may not fully replace the lost contribution profit from eBay (EBAY), investors are likely to put a premium on Venmo-generated incremental revenues. The analyst envisions Vevmo generating $2.5B in revenue and $1.3B in EBITDA by 2025. Sebastian upped his 2020 earnings per share estimate for PayPal to $3.36 from $3.20 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. SUNTRUST UPGRADES NETFLIX TO BUY: SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton upgraded Netflix (NFLX) to Buy from Hold while lowering his price target to $410 from $415, saying the pullback after the Q2 subscriber miss was driven in part by the interest in World Cup viewing. The analyst stated that his Q3 domestic and international Tracker through July suggest subscription gains are "solidly in line or ahead" of expectations. MONNESS CRESPI UPGRADES CHILDREN'S PLACE TO BUY: Monness Crespi upgraded Children's Place (PLCE) to Buy from Neutral with a $165 price target. Analyst Jim Chartier said the modest sell-off in shares following strong Q2 results provides a buying opportunity. The analyst believes Q3 guidance is conservative given positive LDD comp sales to date, and declining investment that provides good visibility into 20%+ earnings growth over the next two years. Children's Place is up 2.2% in late morning trading. MORGAN STANLEY CUTS L BRANDS TO EW: Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger downgraded L Brands (LB) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered her price target to $32 from $56, telling investors the Victoria's Secret turnaround is taking longer than anticipated and she now sees greater risk to 2019 estimates. Greenberger added that L Brands is a "wait and see" stock and she struggles to identify a catalyst to take shares higher despite an compelling valuation and she is moving to the sidelines. L Brands is trading down 2.3% in late morning trading. BAIRD RAISES PAYPAL TARGET TO $99: Baird analyst Colin Sebastian raised his price target for PayPal (PYPL) to $99 from $96 to reflect a favorable view of Venmo's monetization opportunity. He believes Venmo is on track to become a billion-dollar business. Sebastian says that while Venmo may not fully replace the lost contribution profit from eBay (EBAY), investors are likely to put a premium on Venmo-generated incremental revenues. Sebastian kept an Outperform rating on the shares. ALIBABA PRICE TARGET CUT AT MULTIPLE FIRMS: KeyBanc analyst Hans Chung maintained an Overweight rating on Alibaba (BABA) and cut his price target to $220 from $235. Nomura Instinet analyst Jialong Shi lowered his price target for Alibaba to $224 from $231 following the company's Q1 results, but kept a Buy rating on the shares. Argus analyst Jim Kelleher lowered his price target on Alibaba to $235 from $275 after its Q1 earnings miss, but kept his Buy rating on the stock. SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali lowered his price target on Alibaba to $205 from $215, and Jefferies analyst Karen Chan lowered her price target for Alibaba to $225 from $242.

As previously reported, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt upgraded eBay to Buy from Hold as he believes the selloff following the company's Q2 earnings report is overdone.

Etsy price target raised to $55 from $50 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine raised her price target on Etsy (ETSY) to $55 and kept her Buy rating after its Q2 earnings beat and raised guidance. The analyst notes that while the stock price has already doubled year-to-date, its positive momentum is likely to continue after another update forecasting continued revenue growth. Champine also believes that her revenue growth forecasts may prove to be conservative, as Etsy's holiday promotional activity later this year is likely to increase seller count. The analyst contends that Etsy's seller fees at 5% are also an "excellent value" relative to eBay's (EBAY) 10% and Amazon's (AMZN) 15%.
