This field is getting crowded with Apple Pay coming, though PayPal is a good business. People are using their phones to pay more and more, especially in China which has its own digital payments systems. PayPal's best growth is behind them.

He sold it to start the year to buy more ETFs. It's pricey now. His price target is $100.65, and it's close to it now. Buy this below $85, but this is volatile. PEG ratio is only 1.47.

They're getting into emerging markets by buying Venmo. Not cheap though. Price target of $97.85.

Nice sideways motion. Big trading range. The longer a stock goes sideways, the bigger the breakout, and he'd play this as a breakout above $90 (long position) or below $75 (short position). He wouldn't buy until it gets above $90. Wait until something happens, and be patient.

He likes it. It is a fin-tech. It is expensive, but for a good reason. He struggles with buying it when markets are vulnerable. The growth numbers are good and the platform is good. All the boxes are checked, but it will not be immune in a downturn.

Trading at 32x earnings with a 20% growth rate. The 200-day is trending higher. A really nice trend. A solid stock. $82.50-83.00 is where he'd buy.

He is neutral to positive on the name. You could look at a V-N or MA-N, which are better valued. It has really appealing moats. Valuation takes his view lower. He is picky in this area. Tech as a sector is a neutral.

Chart shows a long upward move in 2017, but starting to get volatile. This year the market might do some chop (see comments under "Market"), and the stock is already seeing some chop. You have to be careful. It’s not necessarily bearish, because it could break out. If it took out the old high, that would be bullish. If it goes into a choppy period and then breaks down through the support of about $67-$68, he would probably make for the exit. Let it play out to see if it can break its old high.

Making money hand over fist in a big way, because everybody has basically gone to digital payment. The issue he thinks about is that there are no barriers to entry. This is how Visa (V-N) is trying to get into China right now.

This has been in an upward trend, but struggled a little recently, and has been underperforming the market. It's in a trading range of between $67.50 and $80. If you own this, you should probably continue to hold it. If it breaks below its support level of around $67.50, that would complete a double top pattern. If it moves above its previous high, of about $78, that would be quite encouraging.

A beautiful, beautiful stock. Went from about 190 million accounts to 220 billion accounts, with 70% of them active. A lot of those active accounts, are doing 30 transactions a year, whereas 2 years ago they were doing 20 transactions. All the metrics are pointing in the right direction.

There are lots of options in the market for mobile pay. Lots of things are coming to market that are merging technology with the convenience of our money. With all these choices, we have to look at the business plan. Using PayPal is a very convenient method. However, it is a very, very expensive stock. Trades well over 40X earnings.

Prefers Visa (V-N) and MasterCard (MC-N). The biggest difference is that PayPal is not in stores. It has a pretty significant market share of mobile payments and online payments. They have some agreements with merchants that will hopefully allow them to walk into stores and use “near field communications” on their mobile device. Looking at the valuation, you are better off with Visa and MasterCard. What binds all these companies together is that 85% of global transactions are still conducted in cash.

Thin tech is a massive part of the service industry. It is a growth sector. He bought in April. He is reluctant to buy today given the big jump. It is still 90% cash in the emerging markets world. This is a pure play in the on-line space.
