Facebook cryptocurrency would be 'positive' for PayPal, says Craig-Hallum

Craig-Hallum analyst Brad Berning tells investors in a research note that a Facebook (FB) cryptocurrency would be a "positive" for Buy-rated PayPal (PYPL), as it could drive higher adoption of Braintree merchant acceptance and the Facebook marketplace, which according to CFO John Rainey, could dwarf eBay (EBAY).

PayPal price target raised to $125 from $105 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Tien-tsin Huang raised his price target for PayPal (PYPL) to $125 from $105 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares after meeting with management. The analyst says he gained a better appreciation of the positive momentum and strategy surrounding marketplaces and Venmo. Both of these are important revenue sources to replace the eventual run-off of eBay (EBAY), Huang tells investors in a research note.

Square's Cash App downloads accelerated in May, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev says his proprietary Cash App versus Venmo tracker points to an improvement in Cash App downloads in May. Square's (SQ) Cash App downloads grew by 2.2M in May, with growth accelerating from 2.0M in April, Dolev tells investors in a research note. For PayPal's (PYPL) Venmo, 1.7M downloads in May was similar to April, adds the analyst. He says that after falling below average for two months, Cash App returned to its average of 400,000-500,000 more downloads than Venmo in May. The "upbeat" May download data bodes well for Square, contends Dolev, who reiterates a Buy rating on the shares with a $90 price target.

Facebook crypto, Marketplace could drive growth for PayPal, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Brad Berning notes that investors have been worried about the impact of PayPal (PYPL) losing eBay (EBAY) and missing out on market share opportunities by not participating in Amazon's (AMZN) platform. However, the analyst points out that Facebook's (FB) crypto currency may be coming sooner than expected, which will have large implications for the payments industry as Facebook looks to co-op partners for loading payments, processing FX settlements, and providing exit points to spend the money in cash, crypto, digital wallets and cards networks. Additionally, Berning believes Facebook's Marketplace initiative could be a large positive for PayPal, with the potential to sustain its strong TPV growth rate in the 2021/2022 timeframe, despite eBay unwinding starting in the second half of 2020. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating and $125 price target on PayPal's shares.

BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on TSYS (TSS) to $121 after its merger-of-equals with Global Payments (GPN) announcement. The analyst is also keeping his Market Perform rating after the 20% deal-related run-up in TSYS shares which demonstrated the "attractiveness of merchant acquirers and the benefits of scale." Fotheringham notes that from current levels, there is greater potential in other financial technology names under his coverage like Visa (V) and Paypal (PYPL).

Facebook Watch sales can top $5B in next few years, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley says he's encouraged by stats released from Facebook yesterday showing "strong" improvements in audience and engagement at Facebook Watch. The analyst increasingly sees Watch as a scalable long-term revenue source. However, most investors view Watch as "meh" to the investment case, skeptical it can scale despite some solid numbers released in December, Walmsley tells investors in a research note. Nonetheless, the analyst believes yesterday's stats can start to bring Watch "back to the fore among investors as an emerging part of the medium-term bull case." Walmsley sees a path to Watch becoming a greater than $5B annual business for Facebook in the next few years. With that said, Watch could be a drag on overall revenue in the short term to the extent that time spent cannibalizes core Facebook newsfeed and caries 55% revenue-sharing with content creators, he adds. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Facebook shares.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MoffettNathanson. 2. Red Rock Resorts (RRR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Stephen Grambling saying he sees 35% total return potential in the stock as he believes a successful Palms ramp and free cash flow "inflection" in 2020 can drive a "sustained re-rating." 3. JetBlue (JBLU) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Kevin Crissey saying JetBlue has positive catalysts to support incremental buyers with a range of time horizons and investment styles. 4. Lyft (LYFT) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna. 5. Dollar Tree (DLTR) resumed with an Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Matthew Boss saying he expects an inflection to high-single net income growth and low-double-digit consolidated earnings growth beyond fiscal 2019 as the Dollar Tree offers stability and Family Dollar improves. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Google has most antitrust risk, but still a buy on pullback, says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Aaron Kessler noted that Alphabet (GOOG) shares fell 6%, Facebook (FB) declined over 7%, and Amazon (AMZN) dropped nearly 5% on Monday due to concerns around investigations from the Department of Justice and FTC and news after the close that House Antitrust Subcommittee Chairman David Cicilline announced a bipartisan investigation into competition in digital markets. While he believes Google has the most antitrust risk among the group given the history of fines by the European Commission, Kessler also noted that European fines have been relatively immaterial to Google's market cap and fundamentals. He views the pullback as a buying opportunity given that core fundamentals remain solid for Google, Facebook, and Amazon, calling the valuations of Alphabet and Facebook "particularly" attractive.

PayPal price target raised to $125 from $110 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Bradley Berning raised his price target for PayPal (PYPL) to $125 form $110 as network effects continue to pay dividends, driving a slight beat despite headwinds from FX and eBay (EBAY). Additional Venmo metrics such as revenue run rate commentary ahead of expectations, active user color and successful Venmo use case adding 1M Chipotle (CMG) rewards customer sign ups in a week should help investors' confidence in the company's ability to monetize the user base, he contends. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on PayPal's shares.

Overweight
eBay price target raised to $49 from $46 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler raised his price target for eBay to $49 from $46 saying the shares offer more upside following the company's Q1 results. While the core marketplace gross merchandise volume growth continues to decelerate as expected, the take-rate improvement from lower contra marketing and adoption of promoted listings delivered revenue upside, Sandler tells investors in a research note. At current share values, investors are paying eight times for core marketplaces, "which is arguably still too cheap," adds the analyst. He keeps an Overweight rating on eBay.
