Stock of the week post-it

Our latest stock of the week poll gave our Twitter followers the choice of some high-profile overseas companies that have reported in the last few days, including Walt Disney, Tencent and Adidas. But they’ve gone for PayPal (PYPL), the digital payments company that has big ambitions in the (you guessed it) crypto space.

Readers of a certain age will remember PayPal as one of the first movers of the Web 1.0 era, and probably first came into contact with the company when they’ve paid (or been paid) for something on eBay, another stalwart of e-commerce’s infancy.
