Unless you are a devout follower of the InfoWars website, you not only recognize the digital payments revolution but have participated in it. With physical cash becoming increasingly irrelevant in modern society, the long-term thesis for PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL) is abundantly clear. Thanks to an intuitive interface and ease of use, it's not difficult to understand how PayPal stock has dominated the markets.Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com Not only that, the opportunity for digital payments has rapidly gone international. Most notably, China has witnessed a dramatic shift in online and mobile payments, bolstering the case for not only the PYPL stock price but for rival businesses of Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) and Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY). Given the trajectory of this development, it's highly unlikely that it will reverse course.Furthermore, PayPal stock benefits specifically from the underlying company's strong financial performances. In its most recent earnings report for the third quarter, PYPL's per-share profitability exceeded Wall Street's consensus target. Furthermore, the payment specialist beat out covering analysts' revenue target.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNaturally, the Q3 report sent the PYPL stock price higher. It wasn't just the beat on the key metrics that boosted investor confidence. Rather, PayPal demonstrated that more customers were using its platform to make financial transactions. According to a Reuters' write-up of the Q3 results, "Total payment volume (TPV), or the value of payments completed through PayPal's platform, rose 25% to $178.67 billion, beating estimates of $177.32 billion." * 7 Energy Stocks That Are Still Worth Buying In 2020 You couldn't ask for more. Except that the Street did. After a brief run, PayPal stock eventually gave up its post-earnings gains. After incurring some choppy trading, the PYPL stock price is basically back at square one.Although the wildness in shares is distracting, PYPL is built for the long haul. The Only Two Charts You'll Need to Understand PayPal StockTo put it bluntly, PayPal is a no-brainer. At some point, you'll want to have exposure to this organization's equity. About the only thing you'll need to consider is when you believe the PYPL stock price offers an attractive discount.Fundamentally, we discussed the broad catalyst for PayPal stock: the digital payments expansion. But as an investment, these two charts will likely convince you of PYPL's longer-term narrative, if you weren't already convinced.First, let's take a look at PayPal's TPV and its TPV growth rate. As mentioned above, Q3 was a standout quarter, delivering TPV of nearly $179 billion, translating to 25% year-over-year growth. Click to Enlarge Source: Chart by Josh Enomoto But what's truly remarkable here is that PYPL stock is not the newest kid on the block. It was under eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) before spinning off. Thus, the law of small numbers doesn't apply in this case.However, the average growth rate in TPV since Q1 2018 is 25.6%. This rate is actually larger than the average rate of 24.8% registered between Q1 2015 through Q4 2017. In other words, as PayPal's TPV is growing nominally, its percentage gain is likewise growing.According to business mathematics, the relationship should be inverse: as metrics rise nominally, the percentage growth should decline. This is also known as the law of large numbers.Yet PayPal is rewriting the math book, delivering both robust nominal and percentage TPV gains. That's a huge tailwind that should serve PayPal stock well. * 10 Best-Performing Growth Stocks of the 2010s The other chart? Take a look at the correlation between the PYPL stock price and nominal TPV trends. Click to Enlarge Source: Chart by Josh Enomoto Visually, you can see an obvious direct relationship. Statistically, the two metrics share a 98% correlation coefficient. Stated differently, so long as TPV rises -- and it should -- PayPal stock will likely trek upward. Food for Thought on PayPal StockIn the first half of this year, PayPal stock gained 39%. But on a year-to-date basis, shares are up a little over 28%. That means in the second half of 2019, shares dropped over 8%.Moreover, PYPL has been flat since early August. Technically, this suggests that shares are in consolidation mode, with bulls and bears digesting the latest news.In this regard, I believe PayPal stock is setting up a contrarian opportunity. Although Q3 2019 results were impressive, what's more astounding is the company's body of work. This last earnings report was no fluke, although the Street is almost treating it as such. In my view, this moment is an easy buy.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Shareholders in Eddie Stobart Logistics will be given the option to take part in a rights issue early next year to help pay down or to share the proceeds of a high-interest loan used to rescue the haulage group by Dbay, a private equity group. The company has received about £55m of cash from Dbay to fund operations, through a so-called “payment-in-kind” facility that carries an interest rate of about 18 per cent. This sort of financing adds interest payments to the existing loan, which means the heavily indebted company will not need to pay out cash. The haulage group had warned that it was running out of money, and at risk of breaching its banking covenants.

The Trump administration has agreed to drop a footnote from the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal that would have let it lower the $800 tax-free threshold for imported goods, easing concerns of small business owners who buy overseas materials in small batches, said sources familiar with the matter. The measure had sparked opposition from technology groups and a bipartisan group of 150 lawmakers, who warned U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer about any effort to override Congress, which had raised the threshold in 2016. While some businesses have complained that the level is too high and allows Chinese sellers an unfair pricing advantage on Amazon, eBay and other internet sites, small business owners argued that lowering the tax-free level could raise their costs and hurt their ability to compete globally.
Polish online marketplace Allegro abused its dominant position by using its technical know-how to favour its own shop over other sellers, competition watchdog UOKiK said on Tuesday, threatening the company with a fine of up to 10% of revenue. Allegro, a Polish equivalent of eBay which allows both professional retailers and members of the public to sell on its platform, used an algorithm not available to other sellers to favourably position offers from its own shop, UOKiK said. "In our opinion, Allegro used information it had gathered, including an algorithm for deciding on the relevance of items, to favour its own shop," UOKiK president Marek Niechcial told reporters.

(Bloomberg) -- OYO Hotels, the SoftBank Group Corp.-backed startup that’s built up a large chain of branded hotels and vacation homes around the world, has elevated a key executive to the board to help it focus on profitability and quality control.Aditya Ghosh, who had served as OYO’s chief executive officer for India and South Asia, is stepping up to a board position and will be succeeded by Rohit Kapoor, the company’s current new real estate businesses chief. On the board of directors, Ghosh joins founder and group CEO Ritesh Agarwal, SoftBank Vision Fund Managing Partner Munish Varma and recent addition Betsy Atkins, an early investor in Yahoo and EBay Inc, among others.Before joining OYO a year ago, Ghosh headed up India’s leading budget airline Indigo. He is now set to focus on sustainability and the path to profitability, OYO said in a statement on Monday. Ghosh will oversee a wide portfolio of business areas, spanning safety and security, customer experience, corporate governance, revenue management and stakeholder communications. OYO has been growing at a rapid speed, but its reputation has been tarnished along the way by customer complaints about bad experiences and grievances about poor or unfair treatment from several of the over 20,000 hotel owners in its chain.Citing Ghosh’s strong business acumen and track record, OYO group CEO Agarwal said he is “the perfect choice for this larger and more strategic role, at a global level.” Ghosh said he would further build OYO as a global brand “by not just growing fast but growing right.”OYO, based in Gurgaon in the suburbs of India’s capital New Delhi, was founded six years ago by then-teenager Ritesh Agarwal. For India’s budget travelers, OYO’s promise of standardized and predictable quality stays was a breath of fresh air from a hotel-booking market that was rife with misleadingly pretty online photos that bore little resemblance to the decrepit rooms found upon arrival. The company’s staff help hotel owners upgrade everything from linen to bathroom fixtures to toiletries, with a bright red OYO sign acting as a seal of approval, encouraging travelers to book on its website. OYO takes a cut of roughly 20%.SoftBank’s Vision Fund has so far invested approximately $1.5 billion in OYO pushing its valuation to $10 billion. Other investors include Airbnb Inc., Sequoia Capital and Lightspeed Venture Partners. OYO is the first Indian startup to achieve global scale, growing quickly in major markets like China and the U.S.Earlier this year, Agarwal, now 26, announced that he was borrowing about $2 billion to buy back a 20% OYO stake from other investors, with help from financial institutions. SoftBank Group founder Masayoshi Son personally guaranteed the loans to Agarwal, according to one person familiar with the matter, and among the institutions funding the buyback was Japan’s Mizuho Financial Group Inc., other people familiar with the matter have said. Mizuho has declined to comment.To contact the reporter on this story: Saritha Rai in Bangalore at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at email@example.com, Vlad SavovFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
