PayPal Falls On Q2 Sales Miss, Lower Guidance


PayPal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: PYPL) shares are dropping after reporting a second-quarter sales miss.

Second-quarter adjusted earnings came in at 86 cents per share, which may not compare to the 73 cent estimate. Sales came in at $4.31 billion, missing estimates by $20 million.

The company also issued 2019 sales guidance below analyst estimates. It now sees sales of $17.6 billion-$17.8 billion versus the $17.99 billion estimate.

"PayPal delivered another solid quarter, and consequently we are raising EPS guidance for the year. Net new active accounts increased by a record 41 million over the last 12 months, and engagement per active account once again increased by 9% to 39 times a year. Venmo's momentum continues, with 70% growth in total payment volume to $24 billion. Earlier this month, Xoom expanded to 32 new send markets throughout Europe," said Dan Schulman, President and CEO of PayPal.


  • Revenue increased 12%
  • 9 million net new active accounts
  • 3 billion payment transactions, up 28%
  • Venmo processed $24 billion of TPV, growing 70%
