What we think are PROs of PAYPAL Holdings:

  • Paypal experienced 8.7% year-over-year revenue growth and saw adjusted EPS increase from $1.24 to $1.48.
  • Current valuation ratios are significantly lower than historical averages, signaling substantial undervaluation.
  • Based on DCF simulation, PYPL is projected to be valued at $100 billion, indicating the stock is approximately 49% undervalued, presenting a compelling investment opportunity.
  • Recent developments have further strengthened the management’s ability to sustain revenue growth and enhance profitability.

What we think the RISKs of PAYPAL Holdings:

  • The market is still very cautious about PYPL’s ability to return to its lower levels.
  • The market is currently driven by “Extreme Greed,” fueled by AI’s rapid adoption. So, any potential pullback, not due to PYPL-specific reasons, could offer an excellent buying opportunity amidst market softness.
  • Investing in PayPal carries risks including bearish sentiment, legal and regulatory challenges, competition, and cybersecurity threats.

FUNDAMENTALS:

Market Cap. = 67.35B

P/E Ratio = 16.37

52-week Range = 50.25 – 77.95

Revenue = 29.77B

EPS = 3.85

  • Technical Analysis:
    • – Stock is trading at its 7 years low levels and preparing for a bounce.
    • – Volumes are constantly increasing on the weekly charts which shows the accumulation of this stocks by institutional investors.
    • -It is very far away from its moving average and it may give a good bounce towards its higher levels near EMA resistance.
    • – There is also a trendline breakout on the daily charts and weekly charts as well.
    • – Our First Target will be 85 and then price will jump towards 122.
    • – RSI is also trading flat and now it is preparing for good bounce towards 70 or 80 levels.

Entry: 65

Target: 85 / 100 / 122

Stoploss: 50

  • Our Final Thought: I think that the company will see a lot of moves to the upside for the next couple of quarters because the recently announced initiatives will take time to show results, whether positive or negative. I also don’t think the company will see much more downside risk, and it looks like the company is trading at a bottom.
    Management’s emphasis on enhancing profitability and investing in innovation supports the optimistic outlook for the stock. Paypal Holdings is progressing well towards a turnaround, with a strong financial position improving through debt payments.
