Berkshire Hathaway landed on millennials’ top 10 list of investments in the fourth quarter of 2019, according to new research.
Mastercard's (MA) Q4 performance is likely to have benefited from increase in gross dollar value, owing to rise in spending across various geographical markets.
Square (SQ) has an impressive earnings surprise history and currently possesses the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely beat in its next quarterly report.
Mastercard's (MA) Q4 earnings are likely to have benefited from higher switched transactions, increase in cross-border volume and gross dollar volume, and gains from acquisitions.
Nextdoor, a ZIP code-curated and vetted social network, does not allow discussions about U.S. politics — even during an election year. Here's why.
American Express' (AXP) Q4 earnings are likely to have benefited from strong billings growth and accretive effect of share buyback partly offset by increase in card service costs.
Discover Financial's (DFS) fourth-quarter results are likely to reflect solid gains from card sales, which in turn, might have boosted its top line.
(Bloomberg) -- Shares of PayPal Holdings Inc. and Square Inc. gained Tuesday after separate analysts boosted their ratings on the stocks.Square has a “favorable setup,” as sentiment on the company is mixed at the moment and it can beat expectations, BofA’s Jason Kupferberg wrote in a note raising his rating to buy from neutral.“Following significant underperformance in 2019, we see an attractive entry point,” Kupferberg said. He flagged “quarterly execution” and the company’s March 18 analyst day, its first since 2017, as potential catalysts, adding that Square’s 2020 revenue guidance “looks conservative.” Square rose as much as 3.7%, its biggest gain since Dec. 16.Expectations regarding PayPal have been “reset,” Sanford C. Bernstein’s Harshita Rawat wrote in a note upgrading the stock to outperform. She flagged PayPal’s “negative revisions” in the past year, intensifying competition and “execution hiccups” related to partnerships and its Venmo payments app. Paypal gained 29% in 2019, lagging the 44% advance in the S&P 500 Data Processing & Outsourced Services Index.Now, however, Rawat sees a “compelling one-year bull case,” driven in part by higher expectations from those partnerships, such as with MercadoLibre Inc. and Uber Technologies Inc., along with PayPal’s pricing, Honey online coupon transaction and Venmo monetization. She also sees “sustained potential” for margin expansion and a “palatable” valuation. PayPal rose as much as 1.3% to its highest since September.Separately, MoffettNathanson’s Lisa Ellis wrote that --with “resignation” -- she has decided to cut Fidelity National Information Inc., Fiserv Inc., ADP, and Accenture PLC to neutral as those stocks are “likely to take a breather in 2020.”At the same time, she expects payments industry-wide volume growth of 11% in 2020 as her economic outlook for the year remains “healthy.” Payment sector operating metrics, from credit card volume growth, to enterprise IT budget growth, to U.S. employment growth, are all strong, she said.“In a sector with many strong companies and stocks, we maintain a high bar for a buy rating: An expectation of 20%-plus stock upside over the following year, with specific catalysts,” she said. Four stocks currently clear that bar: Square, PayPal, Mastercard Inc., and Visa Inc., in that order of preference, she said.Accenture slipped as much as 2.5%, its biggest drop since Oct. 22, to extend a six-day losing streak.(Updates shares in third, fifth and ninth paragraphs.)To contact the reporter on this story: Felice Maranz in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Catherine Larkin at email@example.com, Scott SchnipperFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Dressed down, bearded, often wearing a wooly hat and speaking in a slow, quiet voice, you might even call Dorsey the anti-CEO. In November 2019, Dorsey's itchy feet took him to Africa, where he visited Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa and Ethiopia on a listening tour. If you have ever spoken to Dorsey — or more likely read an interview with him — you'll note that he can be somewhat oblique.
