07:45 EDTEBAYSell PayPal amid mounting payments competition, Piper says
Shares of PayPal (PYPL) advanced over 5% yesterday in the stock's first day of trading following a split from eBay (EBAY), with the majority of research firms issuing optimistic notes on its prospects. This morning, however, analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray recommends selling the share as competition grows in the digital payments space. BEARS: Munster started shares of PayPal with an Underweight rating, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell," saying increased competition could pressure the stock's multiple over the next 6-24 months. Google's (GOOG) Android Pay and Apple's (AAPL) Apple Pay will give consumers a "real alternative to PayPal" for the first time, Munster tells investors in his research note. In addition, interest in payments from Amazon.com (AMZN) and Facebook (FB) bring potential for more digital wallet offerings, the analyst notes. Munster set a $30 price target for PayPal. Of note, Evercore ISI also started coverage of PayPal shares yesterday with a Sell rating. BULLS: Wells Fargo initiated coverage of PayPal yesterday with an Outperform rating, saying the company's unique assets will enable it to maintain its leadership role in digital payments and benefit from the growth of e-commerce. Also upbeat was Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian, who contends that PayPal has the top pure play online payment system and is continuing to grow its share of the Internet payment market. PayPal should be able to innovate more effectively after its spin-off, added the analyst, who set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Shares of PayPal are pointing toward further gains in their second day of standalone trading, with the stock up about 2.7% to $41.55 in pre-market trading.

12:08 EDTEBAYOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday in the first trading day of a week that will be light on domestic economic data but heavy on earnings reports. Investors will be receiving profit reports from about 25% of the companies on the S&P 500 this week, making this the highest volume earnings week of this season. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major data was released. In Europe, Greece reopened its banks three weeks after closing as the country worked out another bailout agreement. The country announced it has started the process of paying off its creditors, including the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, with a bridge loan it just received. COMPANY NEWS: Lockheed Martin (LMT) agreed to buy the Sikorsky Aircraft business from United Technologies (UTX) for $9B, noting the price is "effectively reduced" to $7.1B after taking into account tax benefits resulting from the transaction. Shares of Lockheed, which also reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance, gained nearly 2% after the Sikorsky announcement and saying it will conduct a strategic review of its government IT infrastructure services business and technical services business... Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) shares were little changed near noon after the bank reported earnings and revenue, excluding certain adjustments, that topped analysts' consensus forecasts... SunEdison (SUNE) announced a deal to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) for approximately $2.2B, payable in a combination of cash, shares of SunEdison common stock and SunEdison convertible notes. In connection with the proposed acquisition of Vivint Solar, SunEdison has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with a subsidiary of TerraForm Power (TERP) which, concurrently with the completion of SunEdison's acquisition of Vivint, will acquire Vivint Solar's rooftop solar portfolio, consisting of 523 MW expected to be installed by year-end 2015, for $922M in cash. Shares of Vivint rose 44% following the announcement, while SunEdison's stock gained 4% and TerraForm dropped 3%. Fellow residential solar installer SolarCity (SCTY), which is backed by Tesla's (TSLA) Elon Musk, rose 7% following the deal in the space. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exelixis (EXEL), which rallied 43% after the company reported that a study of cabozantinib in metastatic renal cell carcinoma met its primary endpoint of significant improvement in progression-free survival. The shares were indicated to rise even more in early pre-market trading, but lost some of their gains after Bristol-Myers (BMY) announced that its Opdivo study was stopped early after showing superior overall survival in a Phase 3 study of previously treated patients with advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Bristol-Myers rose a bit less than 1% to trade near $70 per share after its own announcement. Also higher was PayPal (PYPL), which gained more than 5.5% in its first day of trading after being spun out of eBay (EBAY). Meanwhile, eBay shares rose over 2%. Cal-Maine Foods (CALM) dropped 8% after posting lower than expected sales and profits in its fourth quarter and warning that while it should have an adequate supply of its primary feed ingredients, the company expects that prices will be "volatile" in the year ahead. Also lower were shares of several gold miners, including Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM), which each fell about 11%, as gold prices declined about 2% near midday. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 31.66, or 0.18%, to 18,118.11, the Nasdaq was up 9.81, or 0.19%, to 5,219.96, and the S&P 500 was up 2.82, or 0.13%, to 2,129.46.
09:31 EDTEBAYPayPal completes separation from eBay
PayPal Holdings (PYPL) has completed its separation from eBay (EBAY) and is now an independent public company trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the ticker symbol “PYPL.” PayPal is well-positioned to deliver the benefits of digital money to people around the world. In 2014, PayPal processed $235B in total payment volume and generated more than $8B in revenues. Also last year, PayPal processed $46B in mobile payment volume. The company serves more than 169M active customer accounts in 203 markets around the world. Under the terms of the separation, on July 17, 2015, stockholders who held eBay common stock at the close of business on July 8, 2015 received a distribution of one PayPal common share for every one share of eBay common stock held as of the Record Date. No fractional shares of PayPal were distributed.

12:12 EDTEBAYOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session in positive territory after Greece's Parliament approved austerity measures that should pave the way for the country to receive a new bailout package. With earnings season gaining steam and the situations in Greece and China appearing more stable in recent days, the S&P and Nasdaq are back within striking distance of their all-time highs. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped to 281,000 in the week ended July 11, versus expectations for 285,000 first-time claims. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index for July came in at 60, a point better than forecast. The Philly Fed business outlook index dropped 9.5 points to 5.7 in July, falling short of the 12.0 reading that was expected. In Europe, Greek lawmakers passed the country's austerity agreement and Euro-area finance ministers also reportedly agreed in principle to extend a $7.6B bridge loan to Greece. The loan, which will come from the European Financial Stabilization Mechanism, should help keep Greece afloat while Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras negotiates the details of the country's three-year bailout. COMPANY NEWS: Netflix (NFLX) rallied 16% and hit a split-adjusted all-time high of $114.45 per share after the streaming service operator reported stronger than expected second quarter results, including higher than expected Q2 subscriber metrics, prompting a large number of research firms to raise their price targets on the stock... The third-largest U.S. bank, Citigroup (C), posted second quarter profit, excluding adjustments and one-time items, of $1.45 per share, beating the $1.34 average estimate of analysts. Goldman Sachs (GS) reported Q2 earnings per share of $1.98, which fell far short of the consensus forecast of $3.89. However, the firm recorded $1.45B in net provisions for litigation and regulatory matters, which reduced EPS for the quarter by $2.77. Goldman Chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein said the bank was "pleased" with its quarterly performance, adding that while "uncertainty in the EU" weighed on investors’ conviction, many of its businesses continued to benefit from generally improving economic conditions. Citi shares rose 3.5% following its report, while Goldman shares slipped a bit more than 1.5%... eBay (EBAY), which is set to split from PayPal (PYPL) in just a few days, reported better than expected earnings for the still-combined company. eBay also announced an additional $1B stock repurchase authorization, bringing its total buyback allowance to $3B, and confirmed it reached a deal to sell eBay Enterprise to a consortium consisting of Sterling Partners, Permira Funds and others for $925M. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amira Nature Foods (ANFI), which advanced 16% after the company reported earnings and said it sees "double-digit" revenue growth in its new fiscal year. Also higher was Philip Morris (PM), which gained 3% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue, excluding certain items. Among the noteworthy losers was Rovi (ROVI), which dropped 16.5% after Netflix was granted a motion of summary judgment invalidating all five of the remaining Rovi patents that were being contested in litigation between the companies. Also lower was Garmin (GRMN), which fell 9% after reporting preliminary Q2 earnings that fell short of expectations, citing the negative impact of currency movements and a "more promotional pricing environment" in the fitness segment. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 35.47, or 0.2%, to 18,085.64, the Nasdaq was up 54.08, or 1.06%, to 5,153.02, and the S&P 500 was up 14.10, or 0.67%, to 2,121.50.

07:53 EDTEBAYeBay CEO says PayPal, eBay both delivered 'strong Q2 results'
"We are very pleased with our overall Q2 performance. PayPal and eBay both delivered strong Q2 results and have strong momentum. Dan, Devin and their respective teams are executing well and are prepared to create the next great chapter for PayPal and eBay," said eBay Inc. President and CEO John Donahoe. eBay gross merchandise volume, or GMV, growth on an FX neutral basis accelerated 1 point over the prior period to 6% and net total payment volume growth accelerated 3 points to 28%. On a year over year basis, foreign currency movements continued to have a negative effect, impacting the revenue growth rate of the eBay Marketplaces business by 8 points and the revenue growth rate of PayPal’s business by 3 points, with benefits from currency hedging partially offsetting the impact at PayPal. Additionally, weaker local currencies in some markets led to reduced demand for goods in export-oriented markets like the United States, impacting the growth of its cross border trade for eBay Marketplaces and PayPal, the company said.

14:02 EDTEBAYeBay technical notes ahead of earnings, levels to watch
The shares broke out of a long base in April of this year that had begun forming in January 2013. The breakout level was at $60. If the news continues to be bullish, a projection forward of the bullish price channel suggests a move to $70 would be possible. If the news is a bearish surprise, the $60 level is the first big test of support. A breakdown back below that area would put an end to the current breakout. Next support below would be at $57.59, which is the 10-month moving average and a good proxy for the low of the current bullish price channel.
