The results were driven by continued strong performance in global payments, both online and mobile. Currently, the company is riding high on partnerships and mobile centrism. PayPal’s ongoing strategic partnerships with Visa and MasterCard offer great flexibility and choice to consumers.  Partnerships with Facebook, Alibaba’s  AliExpress and Alphabet’s  Google, Intuit and other major retailers and financial institutions are also delivering positive results. However, continuous exposure to foreign exchange and interest rate risks are concerns. For the last one year, the stock has outperformed the Zacks Internet – Software industry.”
