PayPal may get a sympathetic bounce from the Square filing:

Square Reportedly Filing for IPO in Next 2 Weeks

The payment-processing startup is said to be filing its S-1 form with the SEC very soon.

Staff reporter, Inc.com

Square is expected to publicly file for IPO within the next two weeks, sources tell Fortune. The reportedly imminent S-1 filing with the SEC would follow news earlier this summer that the payments startup had confidentially filed.

The news matters not just to Square and other payments industry players, but also to Twitter, where Square CEO Jack Dorsey has been moonlighting as interim chief executive. The filing could mean Dorsey will soon be be tasked with running two public companies--or it might put pressure on Twitter to replace Dorsey sooner rather than later.

While Twitter investor Chris Sacca recently tweeted his belief that Dorsey is “the leader that will take [Twitter] to the next level,” the social media company’s current head hasn’t yet been able to turn around the declines in user growth that have made investors queasy. That Dorsey is doing double duty doesn’t help allay concerns.

Going public may not be a victory lap for Square, analysts have cautioned. Rather, it will lead to the company face more direct competition with other payments processors, including large credit card companies. In addition, the payments industry itself is evolving with the rise of electronic wallets in place of plastic.
“They’re a very creative company but we have to see more when they disclose their filing,” Kathleen Smith, principal of Renaissance Capital, a manager of IPO-focused Exchange Traded Funds, told Inc. in July.

Even with plans apparently in place, Square could still put the IPO on hold if concerns about the Chinese economy or higher interest rates arise, according to Fortune. The startup reportedly put off an IPO last year in response to revenue problems.

$PYPL looks like a topping tail @ a pivot point, IF the 10 day moves over the 30 day, we are going higher.

PayPal Shares Up On Earnings; Revenue Rises 17%

by Katie Roof ( @Katie_Roof)
TechCrunch
January 27, 2016

PayPal reported earnings after the bell Wednesday, and the stock quickly ticked up 6% in after hours trading.The payments company authorized a $2 billion stock repurchase program and reported revenue and earnings that exceeded the company’s full year guidance.

PayPal’s fourth quarter adjusted revenue came in at $2.56 billion, up 17% year-over-year. Adjusted net income was $443 million or 36 cents per share, showcasing 27% growth since the same quarter last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were forecasting 35 centers per share on $2.51 billion in revenue.

Spun off from eBay last July, PayPal has fallen 22% since its high last summer. PayPal is the bigger of the two companies, with a market cap of $39 billion. eBay stands at $32 billion

While some people view PayPal as the digital payments platform of yesteryear, they often don’t recognize that PayPal owns Braintree, the mobile payments system that powers scores of apps, ranging from Uber to Airbnb. In other words, every time you take an Uber, PayPal makes money!

PayPal is also the owner of Venmo, a peer-to-peer mobile payments app that is very popular with Millennials. Venmo has done little to monetize, but it is expanding these initiatives.

Yet it is a competitive landscape for digital payments, as Apple, Square and Android continue to make strides in this space.

James Cakmak, analyst at Monness Crespi Hardt, wrote in a research note on Monday that “PayPal’s competitors function on a far leaner basis and we believe the company can operate with significantly more efficiency.”

On the investor relations call Wednesday, PayPal CEO Dan Schulman said “payments is a hard business to crack,” adding “our biggest competition is our ability to execute against our game plan.”

PayPal also acquired Xoom last year, a company that specializes in overseas transfers.

PayPal closed Wednesday at $31.59.
