(A Top Pick March 15/16. Up 9%.) Financial technology is a group he has been invested in for 3-4 years. Payment technology is really attractive because volumes are growing really dramatically. He is now more focused in Visa (V-N) than he is in this company, but it is a great company and a great space.

There was a lot of concern because of V-N and MA-N and their one click check out. But PYPL-Q came to agreements with them. Even with Apple pay you are seeing a slower ramp up than they had hoped for. It is fairly valued. It should do better as the world slowly turns over to a digital economy.

Spun off from Ebay. They recently announced deals with Visa to integrate platforms. They are trying to become best in breed. They are at the crossroads where they will either be necessary or completely unnecessary. He will want to see the fundamentals continuing to grow. He would like to see them acquired by a credit card company.

He focuses on secular or long-term themes. There is probably no bigger theme than e-commerce and online transactions. Some estimate that by 2023 there will be $50 trillion transactions online. This is one of the big leaders in the group, and have a number of different pieces of their business that are attractive. Their total payment volume in the 1st quarter this year is likely to be up 32% year-over-year. One of their pieces of business is Venmo, which is peer-to-peer transactions, where money can be sent from person-to-person. It will get a transaction fee on the way through. Also, has a business called Zoom which allows customers to very inexpensively send money from one country to another. These are all businesses that are upsetting existing industries. This company has $6 billion in cash and are growing very, very rapidly.

This has a narrow focus and a short operating history as a public company. With consumers increasingly going towards a mobile payment system, and with Google and Apple having pretty rigorous technologies and teaming up with the banks, he can see companies like this struggling.

There is not a lot of data to work with because it has only been trading for a couple of months. It would suggest the support is $30 and if it bounces off that you could see the high end of the range.

An intriguing company. An interesting infrastructure play on e-commerce. If you believe that there is going to be more and more online purchases, and people are going to pay for things electronically, this is going to be a big winner in that space. Not a cheap stock, but one that has big growth opportunities in front of them.

This has moved up. Visa (V-N) and MasterCard (MC-N) have done wonderful. He owns Visa. Hasn’t been educated enough on this company’s business and whether it is better to own that or Visa. Prefers Visa, which is a much better moat dollar for dollar.
