Cash and Credit Cards Are Dirty. Apple Pay Is Looking Better.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Cash is dirty. Credit cards may be even dirtier. That’s a problem in this new germophobic world created by the coronavirus. There will likely be new winners and losers as consumers shift to products and services that help them keep their social distance even after this outbreak subsides. Is it finally time to embrace the digital wallet?Take Apple Inc.’s Apple Pay, a service that stores your credit-card information and lets you pay for purchases via your iPhone. The tech giant launched the product six years ago, but it didn’t bring about the revolution it hoped it would, where mobile payments lead the move toward a cashless society as it had in China. Here in the U.S., there just wasn’t a compelling enough reason for many consumers to change their entrenched routines. Now, though, Apple Pay’s ability to let customers shop inside physical stores and pay for things without having to make physical contact with a counter or card-reader may be the catalyst it needs to finally disrupt the payments industry.My own habits are noticeably changing on this front. Though I had my card information inside Apple Pay for years, I rarely ever used it. Old habits die hard, and I simply didn’t mind pulling out my credit card and paying for things the usual way. Nowadays? Not so much. Due to virus fears, I would rather not tap on a payment terminal’s numeric key pads or use my finger to sign for purchases when there is a much cleaner alternative. As a result, Apple Pay has now become the main way I pay for things whenever I venture outside.The way Apple Pay works is, you type in your credit card information into the Apple Wallet app. Once entered, you can pay for items at most physical store retailers by double-clicking the power button, authenticating using Face ID or Touch ID and then hovering your iPhone a few inches above the payment terminal. Google Pay and Samsung Pay work similarly on their respective smartphones. This type of proximity-based mobile payment enables consumers to pay for items without touching or handing over anything.  Traditional paper bills and physical card payment alternatives are filthy in comparison. An academic study cited by Mastercard found the average cash note has 26,000 bacterial colonies. And according to LendEDU, a personal finance products comparison website, credit cards contain even more germs than cash or New York City subway poles. It makes sense as cards are often put on tables, inside restaurant bill folders and are rarely cleaned, while cash is constantly circulated by hand.Yes, the credit-card companies are rolling out their own version of contactless or “tap-to-pay” payments. Visa and Mastercard both said in their most recent reported quarters that about one-third of global transactions are now contactless. But the usage rate of the new cards is much lower in the U.S. as many Americans have yet to receive them. Further, it still requires touching the physical card and tapping the terminal (or at least getting the card within a couple of inches). This year, Apple Pay will command 47% of the U.S. proximity-based mobile payment market, with Google capturing 19% and Samsung Pay 17%, according to an eMarketer forecast.Admittedly, the U.S. market is still small, and expectations were relatively muted heading into this year before the pandemic struck. Only about 33 million Americans were expected to use Apple Pay’s proximity-based payment feature in 2020, or 14.5% of smartphone users, according to an eMarketer forecast made in September. But things are a lot different now.If Apple Pay and its brethren do take off, there will be deeper ramifications across the industry. Credit-card companies will do fine because their card networks are still being utilized by the smartphone maker’s service. But it could be a negative for PayPal Holdings Inc., the payments company that dominates the adjacent market of digital checkout buttons for online retailers.PayPal’s e-commerce checkout button enables its users to pay for online orders on retailer websites without having to re-type address or payment information, reducing friction to complete orders. It is a critical cash cow for the company and accounts for nearly 90% of its earnings, according to MoffettNathanson.But Apple Pay also offers a competing digital checkout feature. And if Apple Pay became increasingly used inside physical stores, it seems likely customers will be inclined to use the service for e-commerce transactions as well, eating into PayPal’s business.With new consumer habits being formed in a coronavirus world, Apple’s gain may be PayPal’s pain.This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Bloomberg LP and its owners.Tae Kim is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering technology.

PayPal Co-Founder Chides Virus Skeptics, Hopes Musk Makes Good
(Bloomberg) -- A fellow co-founder of PayPal Holdings Inc. said Elon Musk and others probably regret comments they made dismissing the seriousness of the novel coronavirus, adding that he’s hopeful the billionaire will now help in the relief effort.“Everyone who has made fun of this thing as a tougher flu or a silly problem that is going to go away with the first ray of sunshine is probably slightly embarrassed by those comments,” Max Levchin, who at 23 co-founded a company that would eventually become PayPal, said Monday on Bloomberg Television. “That excludes no one.”Musk, who now runs Tesla Inc. and SpaceX, initially downplayed the virality of the coronavirus and fatality rates related to Covid-19. He called panic over the illness “dumb” and predicted that overreaction would do more harm than the disease itself before starting to help by donating masks to hospital workers and buying ventilators.Musk has told his Twitter followers that Tesla can be most helpful by purchasing ventilators and helping deliver them more efficiently. While he tweeted that he had an engineering discussion with ventilator maker Medtronic Plc on March 21, it’s unclear whether Tesla or Space Exploration Technologies Corp. will play a role in manufacturing the desperately needed medical devices.“You do have this spirit of Silicon Valley, that when given direction or given a good idea, we know how to mobilize and inspire and go through walls and build something,” Levchin, who’s now chief executive officer of fintech company Affirm Inc., said on Bloomberg TV. “And so in that sense, I think if Elon is committing to build ventilators, by god he’s going to build a lot of ventilators, and they’re probably going to be quite good.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

There are Better Choices Out There Than the QQQ ETF
The Invesco QQQ Trust (NASDAQ:QQQ) ETF looks like a mixed bag at this point. Some of its top holdings should perform very well in the coming weeks and months, while others are likely to struggle. Therefore, I believe that investors should avoid the QQQ ETF at this point.Source: Shutterstock To be sure, the ETF has some very good components. Two of the exchange-traded fund's top holdings --Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) which accounts for 10.7% of its assets and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) which is 8.14% of its assets -- should perform pretty well going forward. The companies are the leaders of the cloud transition.The fund tracks the Nasdaq-100 index, which includes 100 of the largest domestic and international non-financial companies listed on the Nasdaq exchange, based on market cap.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAs I've noted previously, multiple analysts have said that firms are unlikely to stop transitioning to the cloud. That's because the change is core to their IT strategies and it's expected to occur over a period of many years, making it unlikely to be derailed by the relatively short-term outbreak of the coronavirus from China. And of course, Amazon's results will be boosted tremendously by the ongoing e-commerce surge that's occurring amid the coronavirus.Also likely to get a boost from the pandemic are Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which accounts for nearly 2% of the ETF's assets, and PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL), with a weighting of about 1.5%. Netflix should benefit from increased subscriptions as quarantined people around the world look for more TV options, while PayPal should be helped by the increased utilization of e-commerce. Yet… * 7 Stocks Insiders Are Buying Big Amid the Market Panic QQQ ETF Has Some Real DudsWith its very expensive products and its high leverage to Chinese consumers who are angry at Americans, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is not a good stock to own now. It accounts for 11.6% of the ETF's assets. Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Charter (NASDAQ:CHTR) -- huge cable companies that make up 2.1% and 1.2% of the ETF's assets, respectively -- are being disrupted by cord cutting. As I've written in the past, cable companies' one remaining strong business -- providing internet broadband -- could be totally decimated by Elon Musk's SpaceX which is looking to provide fast internet with satellites. Finally, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), 4.25% of the ETF's holdings, has massive regulatory problems and has been badly hurt by a change that Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) made to Chrome's privacy standards. Further, Facebook's ad business will be negatively affected by the recession. Two Much-Better ETFs to BuyThe Global X E-commerce ETF (NASDAQ:EBIZ) "focuses on companies positioned to benefit from the increased adoption of e-commerce as a distribution model," according to the fund's sponsor. Among the portfolio's largest components are e-commerce website Etsy (NASDAQ:ETSY), Canada's Shopify (NASDAQ:SHOP) which enables small businesses to easily launch e-commerce websites and up-and-coming Chinese e-commerce company (NASDAQ:JD). Not surprisingly, the ETF has outperformed tremendously during the coronavirus crisis; it's little changed since March 12. As hundreds of millions of people globally continue to stay at home much more than before the outbreak, the ETF's outperformance is likely to continue in the coming days and weeks. * 7 Stocks to Buy Once the Market Bottoms Another good fund to buy at this point is the Kraneshares CSI China Internet (NYSEArca:KWEB). China is reporting that it has almost no new cases of coronavirus brought about by contagion within the country, i.e., community spread. Meanwhile, signs continue to mount that the country's economy is rebounding. Among the ETF's largest holdings are several companies likely to benefit from increased e-commerce, including giants Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) and Tencent (OTC:TCEHY), along with iQIYI (NASDAQ:IQ), the company that has been called "the Netflix of China," and video game maker NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES), two other companies that should benefit from the stay-at-home trend, are also among the fund's largest holdings.The Global X E-Commerce ETF and Kraneshares CSI China Internet have much more exposure to strong, positive trends than the QQQ ETF.

Fintechs Seek U.S. Government Funds to Help Make Business Loans
(Bloomberg) -- Financial-technology firms including PayPal Holdings Inc. are lining up to help speed lending to small businesses during the coronavirus crisis -- and are pushing for a slice of emergency U.S. government funding.Industry group Financial Innovation Now urged Congress in a letter to provide capital to online lenders including PayPal and Square Inc., and to permit the firms to disperse Small Businesses Administration loans. The group’s members also include Inuit Inc. and Stripe Inc.“Any federal small-business loan program must leverage digital advances in the marketplace to ensure that stimulus can reach those business most in need,” Financial Innovation Now said in its letter. “Millions of truly small businesses, those most likely to fail in the coming weeks, will not be well-served by loan guarantees made available exclusively through financial institutions.”Last week, President Donald Trump said the SBA would provide low-interest loans in affected states and asked Congress to boost funding for the program by $50 billion. Small businesses are losing 80% to 100% of their revenue amid the pandemic, according to another fintech trade group, Innovative Lending Platform Association.“If they all go out of business, we can’t serve them in the future,” Scott Stewart, chief executive officer of ILPA, said in an interview. “We don’t care about making any money on this, but we want to keep them alive so that when this is all wrapped up we can be lending to them in the long term.”Many small businesses have only 10 days of cash on hand or less, according to Sam Taussig, head of global policy at Kabbage Inc., an online lender. While SBA loans can take as long as 90 days, fintech firms are touting their ability to process loans in days or weeks.A Square spokeswoman declined to comment. PayPal didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

PayPal stock gains after Macquarie starts coverage with a 'high-conviction' outperform rating
PayPal Holdings Inc. shares are up 4.4% in Thursday trading after Macquarie analyst Dan Dolev began coverage of the payments provider with a "high-conviction" outperform rating and $112 target price. He wrote that his recent survey of consumers found that PayPal's usage trends are improving more so than trends for mobile wallets like those made by Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s . While younger millennials showed the least improvement in terms of PayPal engagement in his survey, Dolev is upbeat that Venmo and the recent acquisition of rewards-platform Honey will help PayPal's standing with this demographic. "When the virus dust settles, long-term growth potential will be back in fashion," he wrote. The stock is off 24% over the past month as the S&P 500 has lost 28%.
