Barclays analyst Ramsey El-Assal labeled PayPal Holdings Inc. his top pick in payments and processing late Wednesday in initiating coverage of the category. "PayPal remains a scarce asset levered to most dynamic parts of the payments industry," wrote El-Assal, who began coverage of the stock with an overweight rating and $110 price target. He sees PayPal shares as attractive given that the company has a market capitalization of roughly $100 billion but is growing organic revenue by about 20%. El-Assal wrote that PayPal has significant exposure to "tech-enabled" online channels as well as fast-growing international markets. He's also upbeat about opportunities from Venmo. "Given Venmo revenue historically has carried no profit, even modest uptake of monetization should have an outsized earnings impact," he said. El-Assal also assigned overweight ratings to shares of Visa Inc. , Mastercard Inc. , and Square Inc. , among other payments names. PayPal's stock ended Wednesday's regular session up 0.3% and was up 0.4% in after-hours trading. The S&P 500 dropped 0.8% on Wednesday.

The far-right group Proud Boys has been hit with bans from Twitter and Facebook and now it will no longer be allowed to operate on PayPal. The Verge reports that PayPal will be cancelling both the Proud Boys account as well as that of its founder Gavin McInnes. At the same time, it's also continuing to take down accounts belonging to a number of anti-fascist groups, including Atlanta Antifa, Antifa Sacramento and the Anti-Fascist Network.
PayPal has shut down several accounts, including those for far-right group the Proud Boys and their founder, Gavin McInnes, for the promotion of "hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance." Several anti-fascist groups were also banned as part of the same wave of policy enforcement. PayPal confirmed the bans to TechCrunch, which were first reported by BuzzFeed News. The Proud Boys are a right-wing organization that has until recently managed to avoid being labeled a hate group.
