PayPal Holdings, Inc. enables digital payments for consumers and merchants worldwide. Shares fell on quarterly financial results and guidance that were below investor expectations due to a faster roll-off of eBay business, which should only be a temporary headwind. PayPal also announced the acquisition of Paidy, the leading buy-now-pay-later provider in Japan, which expands PayPal’s addressable market into a fast-growing category. We remain investors because we believe PayPal is a prime beneficiary of the secular growth of e-commerce and digital financial services.”
