Square stock has crushed coronavirus stars such as Zoom and Netflix, up a whopping 235% during the market's comeback from its March 23 lows. But is it time to buy SQ ahead of its Q2 earnings release on August 5?
Square's (SQ) second-quarter results are likely to reflect strengthening product and services portfolio amid coronavirus pandemic.
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has reportedly acquired a Canadian start-up with technology that could be used to turn every iPhone into a contactless payment acceptance device, directly challenging Square (NYSE: SQ), which is the leading provider of mobile payment hardware and software. Bloomberg says Apple is paying $100 million to buy Mobeewave, a maker of tech that allows mobile devices to accept in-person payments without additional hardware. Once the Mobeewave app is installed on a smartphone equipped with a near-field communication (NFC) chip, a buyer can simply tap their credit card against the back of the phone to make a payment without the need for any dongles, wires, card readers, or other hardware.Buyers can also type in an amount they want to pay on their own phone and tap the recipient's phone to make the payment.
