Earnings Outlook: PayPal earnings: Acquisition spree could reshape online-payments giant

Since its last earnings report, the PayPal Holdings Inc. family has gotten a bit bigger.

PayPal PYPL, +2.02% has announced four acquisitions in the past two months, committing more than $2.7 billion in total. The company’s earnings report, scheduled for Wednesday after the bell, will provide investors with their first opportunity to hear from management about how all the new additions fit into the company’s general strategy.

PayPal’s approach to acquisitions these days is intriguing, because the company has opted to go after a number of companies, of various sizes, rather than make a single blockbuster deal.
