Rosenblatt analyst Sean Horgan shines a light on each of these payment stocks by claiming they will be top performers in their sector. The analyst goes into detail about why he believes in each of them.

In the case of PYPL stock, Horgan says that its renewed focus on Venmo is a positive for the company. In addition to that, he points toward PayPal’s ever-expanding crypto plans as another reason the stock will perform well.

That makes sense considering new news from PayPal this morning. The company just announced that it’s allowing users of the Venmo app to buy, sell, and trade certain cryptocurrencies. That includes Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD), Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD), Litecoin (CCC:LTC-USD), and Bitcoin Cash (CCC:BCH-USD). Investors can learn more about that here.

Next up is SQ stock, which the Rosenblatt analyst says has potential due to its Cash App app. He’s expecting the service to continue building its user base with low customer acquisition costs. In fact, he says that the company will surpass analysts’ 34 million monthly active users estimate for Q1.

So how much can investors expect these top payment stocks to gain? According to Horgan, both PYPL stock and SQ stock should see gains of more than 30% from their closing prices on Monday, reports Seeking Alpha.

PYPL stock was down 1.4% and SQ stock was up 1.6% as of noon Tuesday. They are also up 13.9% and 12.6% since the start of the year, respectively.
