What's Going On With PayPal Stock Today?

PayPal Holdings Inc PYPL shares are trading lower Thursday amid overall market weakness as investors continue to digest inflation concerns, Fed rate hikes and macro uncertainty. Concerns surrounding a potential economic slowdown have also weighed on growth stocks.

U.S. household spending, measured by the personal consumption expenditures index, cooled off in May. Seasonally-adjusted spending was up just 0.2% last month, representing a slowdown from the revised 0.6% jump in April, according to Bureau of Economic Analysis data.

Personal income increased $113.4 billion or 0.5% in May, which was unchanged from April. The combination of relatively flat personal income growth and slowing consumer spending has added to inflation concerns.
