PayPal Q4 results mixed, positive fundamentals intact, says Baird

Baird analyst Colin Sebastian kept his Outperform rating and $99 price target on PayPal (PYPL) after its Q4 results, saying that while revenues came in "a touch soft", the slight miss was in line with his checks. The analyst notes that the soft top-line result was driven by " e-commerce slowdown, eBay (EBAY) weakness, and International/x-border challenges", but sees the company's positive long-term fundamentals as intact. Sebastian points to the growth in PayPal's transactions of 28% - up from 27% in Q3 - along with a 9% increase in user engagement, adding that while his price target is based on the 30-times forward earnings multiple, he sees the premium valuation as reflective of the company's scale and innovation pace.

U.K. 'yellow flags' could limit Q4 upside for Amazon and PayPal, says Baird
While e-commerce trends in North America remain healthy, there are enough "yellow flags" in the U.K./Europe data to make risks elevated for e-commerce companies with international exposure, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. Reports and commentary from U.K. online spending sources, retailer Asos, FedEx (FDX), Visa (V), and smaller players suggest December e-commerce spending may be tracking below expectations in the region, says the analyst. He points out that PayPal (PYPL), eBay (EBAY) and Amazon.com (AMZN) are most exposed to European e-commerce among the companies he covers. Sebastian believes the possible U.K. slowdown could limit revenue and margin upside for those companies in Q4.

Green Dot upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer upgraded Green Dot (GDOT) to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $94, saying the recent 20% decline in its stock price from the early November highs has created an "attractive entry point for an evolving fintech story." The analyst notes that the company looks to have "sustainable momentum" after beating on consensus earnings and revenue for the past 12 quarters, also highlighting Green Dot's consistent progress in "repositioning its core prepaid debit card business". Palmer adds that he is positive on the company's "expanding roster of enterprise-level programs", and that its Banking as a Service partnerships now include Apple Pay Cash Card (AAPL), Intuit's (INTU) TurboTax prepaid card, Uber's Instant Pay and PayPal's (PYPL) cash in and cash out money services.

PayPal price target raised to $115 from $110 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Ramsey El-Assal raised his price target for PayPal to $115 and maintains an Overweight rating on the name. The company has released "many important new clues" over the past few months regarding the pace of Venmo monetization, El-Assal tells investors in a research note. He believes Venmo monetization is set to drive "meaningful" upside to consensus earnings estimates in 2020.

PayPal merchant acceptance lead widened in Q4, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said that PayPal (PYPL) widened its merchant acceptance lead in Q4 as it added a net of 8 of the U.S.'s top 500 internet retailers while the next largest accepted digital wallet, Amazon Pay (AMZN), lost 4 net merchants this quarter. PayPal now has acceptance at 82% of the top 500 U.S. Internet retailers, up from 81% last quarter, while Amazon's acceptance rate slipped to 12% from 13%. MasterCard's (MA) MasterPass gained 1 net new merchant, Visa Checkout (V) gained no net new merchants and Bitcoin acceptance remained unchanged at 4 of the top 500, Faucette added. The analyst, who think PayPal's acceptance lead and consumers' shift toward online purchases should support total payments volume growth at or above the rate of e-commerce, keeps an Overweight rating on PayPal shares and raised his price target to $99 from $97.

eBay Q4 mixed with core marketplace 'still struggling,' says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says eBay reported a "mixed" Q4 with revenue and operating margin slightly above the Street, but gross merchandise volume below consensus. Further, the company's fiscal 2019 guidance called for slowing top-line and expanding margins, Olson tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The company also instituted a "major" capital return program for 2019 and 2020 and initiated its first dividend, adds the analyst. While he's encouraged by the capital return, he believes the core marketplace asset "is still struggling to regain growth and momentum." As such, Olson keeps a Neutral rating on eBay with a $32 price target.

eBay initiated dividend, upped buyback amid slower growth, says Citi
Citi analyst Mark May says that while eBay's Q4 results were generally in-line with expectations, the company increased its focus on capital allocation via a dividend initiation share buyback increase given its slowing growth. Management's 2019 outlook indicates slower than expected growth, May tells investors in a research note. The analyst lowered his price target for eBay to $41 from $42 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

eBay becoming income stock with growth 'close to zero,' says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill says eBay is turning into an income stock given its dividend initiation and higher buyback coupled with "close to zero" growth. The analyst says that while an accelerated capital return plan highlights confidence in cash flow generation, he would prefer a greater focus on internal investments to rejuvenate the core business. eBay looks more appealing to value investors focused on income rather than to growth oriented tech investors, says Thill. He sees "much better ways" to play e-commerce and large cap Internet and keeps a Hold rating on eBay despite boosting his price target for the shares to $34 from $32.

eBay price target raised to $43 from $33 at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Shyam Patil raised his price target on eBay to $43 from $33 following Q4 results. The analyst said fundamentals continue to weaken and he believes the company should focus on monetizing Classifieds and StubHub. His price target increase is based on his sum-of-the-parts valuation. Patil reiterated his Positive rating on eBay shares.
