Fintech is an interesting area. A good company, but the price is discounting things far into the future, priced for perfection. So, he's very leery of this, fintech and the wider "innovation" space. He recalls the dotcom bubble 20 years ago--we're not there yet, but there are whiffs of it.

Great company. One of his favourite names. The concern is valuation. It's beyond priced for perfection. He's looking for a better entry point. Moving into e-commerce. Caters to both consumers and businesses. Expect continued rapid growth in 2021 and beyond.

A very attractive sector with secular growth. People are moving away from cash. Visa would be a better choice. There are better opportunities out there since the stock has run up so much.

They have made a very big impression through their cash-app. It gives users the ability to transact smaller amounts. No one wants to touch cash during COVID which has helped them do well. The POS side of the business has not done as well, but the stock has still done well. A great deal of the benefit of the future is already priced in. Many of the fintech stocks are a little over-valued.

It has been hot during Covid. Their peer-to-peer payments app is arguably better than PayPal's. It's up 185% in the last 6 months and is now pricey. If the stock pulls back after it reports in 2 weeks, buy some.

Fintech continues to be attractive. Pay a premium, at 206x forward earnings, but a very strong growth rate. 20% growth longer term, and earnings are starting to accelerate. Looks attractive.

Is one of 7 growth stocks where investors don't care about earnings during this pandemic, so buy them: Square empowers the little guy, small business. Investors worship this stock more than SQ's actual users. The closures of its clients during Covid didn't turn out to be a problem. In fact, the stock keeps roaring. It's a non-bank alternative to banks.

With a high multiple you're asking if the market is anticipating too rosy a future for this company, does the market have it right, or should it be more expensive? Transactions are down. It is the future, but pricey. Might buy it on a general market pullback of 10-25%.

SQ-N vs. PYPL-Q. The broader payment processing space is great but he prefers V-N. These are expensive stocks. PYPL-Q has abroad offering so probably the better one to buy. He would say that you should look at the best-of-breed, V-N. Paypal would be the preference between the two, however.
