Will Paypal share price explode ?

Following persistent rumours about Paypal Holdings Inc, being a potential acquisition target, its share price is expected to jump from 37,07 $ to 50 $ in the next 30-60 days.

Paypal has split from eBay and can now be acquired.

MasterCard could make a move in the coming weeks and is said to be in advanced negotiation stage to offer 50 dollars per share. (Paypal valuation would therefore be 61 billion $). With 1.3 billion cards in circulation, MasterCard remains confronted with very strong competitor (VISA), who have made lots of strong investment recently.

Apple-payment-square

Such an acquisition would enable MasterCard to make a big jump in the payment services, e-commerce services (Alibaba, Amazon and the likes) and to operate some of the largest sharing economy unicorns (AirBnB, Uber…). Merchant services, one of Paypal’s strenghts, would also be a way for MasterCard to acquire a dominant position in a strategic market, where Paypal dominates the world. As this is probably the quickest and easiest way for MasterCard to enter in this highly lucrative market, MasterCard is prepared to pay a substantial premium.
