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.

PayPal Moves to Cut Off VPN & Smart DNS Services
February 7, 2016

If you are a user of a VPN or Smart DNS service, you will soon have one fewer payment option. PayPal is cutting off all VPN and Smart DNS services from their payment network. If your provider has not been blocked yet, it is likely it will be shortly. Recently UnoTelly made the issue public by releasing the statement that PayPal sent to them:
“Under the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, PayPal may not be used to send or receive payments for items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy, or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction,”

PayPal’s email reads. “This includes transactions for any device or technological measure that descrambles a scrambled work, decrypts an encrypted work or otherwise avoids, bypasses, removes, deactivates or impairs a technological measure without the authority of the copyright owner.”
This is not the first time PayPal has cut off services that could be used for copyright infringement or bypassing lockouts. A few years ago PayPal blocked all file-sharing services from their network.

UnoTelly gave a statement to TorrentFreak and said, “We are disappointed at PayPal’s unilateral action and the way it acted without prior warning. We provide both DNS resolution and secure VPN services. Our services are network relays that connect people around the world.”

Cord Cutters News has heard from several VPN and Smart DNS services that their PayPal accounts have been disabled; however, a few still offer PayPal as an option. We have even heard that at least one has been blocked by Master Card from accessing their payments network.

This is just one more move in an effort to crack down on people living outside of the desired market for each service. Recently Netflix announced they would also be working to block proxy services.

Hopefully this move by content owners to block VPNs and Smart DNS services is also accompanied by a new effort to offer more options for their customers to legally pay for the content they want.

While at Home Depot the other day I noticed Paypal as a payment option on the self checkout screen. I see this type of penetration as a positive - so I'm going to try and buy something using my account. Turns out I use paypal a lot for ebay, but never installed the phone app - have now and it looks like to checkout you use your phone number and a pin. Will report back after I use it - it also showed a list of stores nearby that accepted paypal.

PayPal (PYPL) the best value play right now among payment stocks?

Fwd multiples (Sales, EBITDA & PE) trading at nice discount to MA and V and expecting higher growth.

Keeping an eye on this one...

Lots of insider buys in the last week. I know that should be taken with a grain of salt but still makes me smile.
