Let’s jump into that news below to see what’s going on here.

  • According to these reports, Paypal is looking to acquire Pinterest in a $45 billion deal.
  • The insiders with knowledge of the deal claim that this will have Paypal acquiring PINS stock for $70 per share.
  • Reports of the deal broke on Wednesday and the offer from Paypal is nothing to sniff at.
  • Based on PINS stock’s closing price on Tuesday, the offer is a close to 26% premium.
  • Of course, neither Paypal nor Pinterest has confirmed the acquisition news.
  • Even so, the idea of Paypal picking up Pinterest makes sense.
  • Paypal has been picking up other companies since being spun off of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) in 2015.
  • Specifically, it’s had a focus on companies tied to e-commerce.
  • Considering that PINS allows for purchases through its app, it’s a believable target for PYPL.
  • Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like investors in either company are excited about the deal.
  • Both are seeing their shares fall on Thursday with heavy trading.
  • In the case of PYPL stock, shares are down 5.2% with some 15 million changing hands.
  • That’s well above its daily average trading volume of 6.4 million shares.
  • PINS stock is slipping 2.5% as of this writing with some 13 million shares on the move.
  • The company’s daily average trading volume is 11.4 million shares.
