MasterCard, Visa among best stocks to play fintech boom, Barron's says

The fintech units within large banks still play second fiddle to rate-sensitive lending, Ben Walsh writes in this week's edition of Barron's. The best way to play fintech boom is through the MVP stocks - MasterCard (MA), Visa (V) and PayPal (PYPL) -, the author contends. Reference Link

PayPal price target raised to $127 from $120 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Keane raised his price target for PayPal to $127 from $120 saying commerce platform expansion is positive for sustaining the company's growth. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares. He also increased his Q2 earnings per share estimate to 82c from 69c to account for the benefit from unrealized gains in minority investments.

Outperform
PayPal's low end of guidance 'highly achievable', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Daniel Perlin kept his Outperform rating and $120 price target on PayPal, saying the company's Q2 and FY19 revenue guidance implies organic acceleration of 1%-4% in the second half of 2019. The analyst contends that while the low end of that range is "highly achievable", the high end could prove "aggressive". Perlin remains positive on PayPal's Venmo monetization, continued new marketplace growth, and increased consumer engagement, but believes that acceleration in organic growth is needed to drive the valuation on its stock higher in the near term.

PayPal price target raised to $140 from $125 at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Moshe Katri raised his price target for PayPal to $140 from $125 and maintained an Outperform rating following details from an industry journal related to ongoing efforts for monetizing Venmo. In a research note to investors, Katri says that beyond ongoing revenue generation at Venmo from Instant Cash, Pay with Venmo and The Venmo Card, the article points to ongoing plans to integrate Venmo into PayPal's Hyperwallet, which helps organizations manage payments/payroll to freelancers, as well as into Xoom, PayPal's money transfer service. Katri says he continues to see multiple potential avenues for significantly expanding Venmo's user base and ongoing run rate while improving profitability levels.

Visa, MasterCard disruption threat from Libra 'fairly low,' says Morgan Stanley
After Facebook (FB) unveiled its cryptocurrency Libra yesterday, Morgan Stanley analysts led by Brian Nowak highlighted six "key questions" they still have about the impact on Facebook, commerce and the overall global banking and payments system from the social media giant's offering. The team, as previously stated, believe that Instagram commerce could be a greater than $4B annual opportunity for Facebook and even larger over the long term across Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp and the core app. However, they also think costs may rise as they believe Facebook is likely going to have to fund rewards to drive Libra adoption. Libra's real-time aspect largely already exists in the banking system, except for in real-time cross-border payments, which is a challenge that Facebook could address, though it won't be alone there as JPMorgan (JPM) is also working on its own s Interbank Information Network blockchain, the team noted. The team believes Libra's threat of disruption to Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) is "fairly low" as the major networks have a significant scale advantage, low costs, mature fraud detection abilities and they are both also founding members and investors, Nowak and the analysts also noted.
