That's one hell of beat down (- 8%), after renewing with EBAY through 2023 and having 24% revenue growth this quarter. I'm still holding, despite the likely drawdown of the ebay relationship around 2020. Paypal needs to get into crypto - now that would surely double it overnight. :)
They might get a short term pop, but it probably would not last. The company is just too big, although I suspect that they will be accepting cryptos at some point.

Was bought in my 401K brokerage account, so I do not believe I have any need to track cost basis, but it is good to know.
