PayPal to invest $500 million in Uber
cnbc.com
A financial services component is important to Uber as it works to expand into a “superapp” of logistics and transportation services.

Superapps are applications where customers go for a range of services, such as transportation, shopping and payments. Such companies can be much more lucrative than those that offer just one core business or service.

Looks like someone screwed up

yeah it was short lived. My guess is a developer messed up and it took them about 30 - 40 minutes to correct the problem.

The issue is, if one has a big public market and with hacking so rampant, one should test software before going live in production.

What caught my attention was when I went to login, it wasn't what I expected to see. Which made me then go back and examine all sorts of stuff to make sure I wasn't about to lose my user/password to a hacker.

Once I figured out the mistake was just making mexico the default connection page I realized Paypal was the one with the problem. Not a hacker per se or so i thought.

The antitrust probes just opened up by the EU against Apple ( AAPL) - Get Report probably won’t do enormous financial damage to the tech giant. But companies such as Netflix ( NFLX) - Get Report, Spotify ( SPOT) - Get Report, Amazon.com ( AMZN) - Get Report, Match Group ( MTCH) - Get Report and PayPal ( PYPL) - Get Report are still likely pleased to see them announced.

I have no holding in PayPal at the moment.

I was researching it this weekend to consider for a buy and found out about WireCard.

I've never heard of Wirecard but apparently Wirecard is now closed because 2 billion euros are missing?
then the article goes on to say that the missing money was never there.

I probably got that wrong. But what I was wondering is why did a news report get issued somewhat recently that talked about PayPal buying (potentially) some of the assets of wirecard?

a little further digging suggests paypal possibly had some deals with wirecard
a post
and a bunch of posts

apparently the wirecard issue goes further back

whats your current feel on the buy worthiness of paypal and where does wirecard fit into the equation?

PayPal is expanding, and I assume they would be looking to get some assets cheap. It's possible, but I don't have any info that I could say for certain.

PayPal is my first investment into financial stocks, over a year ago. . It has been a great investment for me so far.

Not much action on this board. If you get any info about this subject I would be happy to hear what you have found.
Good luck.
John
