Is PayPal Stock a Buy After Its 50% Crash?

In this video, I will talk about PayPal’s (NASDAQ: PYPL) first-quarter earnings report and go over some key points management mentioned during the call. You can find the video below, but here are some highlights. 
The company reported revenue of $6.5 billion, up 7% year over year, and earnings per share of $0.88, down 28% year over year.
Venmo ended the quarter with 85 million users and is set to launch Pay with Venmo on Amazon later this year.
Management also reiterated its 50%-plus revenue growth guidance for Venmo. 
PayPal added 2.4 million net new active accounts and ended the quarter with 429 million active accounts, up 9%.
PayPal bought back $1.5 billion in stock year to date. That’s equal to 44% of the whole of last year. 
PayPal ended the quarter with free cash flow of $1.1 billion, down 32%. The company is expecting to end the year with $5 billion in free cash flow, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it repurchased more shares at these prices.
