Why #Squarepocalypse Isn’t a Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is part of planned sales by the billionaire co-founder. He began the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. sixteen. Since then, he has sold 700,000 shares through the newest divestiture of his on Jan. four.
To estimate the entire sales, he likely generated $160 million in pre tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
When you’re considering selling based on these planned sales, do not. Square’s got plenty of room to run in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is right now trading at at least $240. Since Jan. one, the stock is up over 10 %.
And that is along with the 245 % gains it achieved in 2020, something I’d a suspicion would occur. Here’s what I published on Jan. three, 2020:
Since Q3 2017, Square’s GPV [gross transaction volume] from sellers with an annual GPV of over $500,000 grew 700 basis points to twenty seven %. Meanwhile, those sellers with a yearly GPV of less than $125,000 dropped 700 basis points to 45 %. At exactly the same time, sellers with between $125,000 and $500,000 in GPV increased by 100 basis points to 28 %. Precisely why is it important? It demonstrates the company’s revenue has grown to be a lot more diversified; it today benefits from payment processing across companies of all sizes.
How’s it doing a year later on this front?
In the third quarter of 2020, sellers with annual GPV greater than $500,000 accounted for 30.6 % of the $28.8 billion in seller GPV. That is up 270 basis points from the preceding 12 months. Sellers with annual GPV between $125,000 and $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or maybe 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier. These 2 groups accounted for sixty one % of seller GPV within Q3 2020, 500 basis points higher than the prior 12 months.
Sure, sellers with annual GPV below $125,000 still accounted for 39 % of general seller GPV, however, it shows larger companies’ acceptance rate, that is important to its constant development.
To get to $300 sooner in 2021, two things have to keep growing: Cash App, the finance app of its, and then Square Capital, its lending platform.
