PayPal Holdings Inc
Ideas, Updates & Analysis
Despite the website paypalsucks.com, PayPal seems to be hitting a new high every day.
Since breaking away from eBay in 2015, this stock has been a big winner.
It has almost doubled in less than 3 years.
I finally gave in and bought some shares at around $76.
After all, this is one of the main ways I accept payments from my customers.
I think one of the stock market gurus said something like "Buy stock in companies that you use."
I wish it paid a dividend but when there is stock performance, who needs a dividend?
By the way, is there a way to receive a credit card payment without paying a 3% fee?
Hopefully, PYPL will continue to climb.
