So tell me all the reasons that an investor should avoid SQ.

There would be very few. They have invested heavily in SaaS CRM subscriptions and services so their future is less heavily reliant on (possibly)cyclical pure transactional revenue. Subscriptions and services bucket made up 38.5% of adjusted revenue or $166M. It is growing at 155%yoy. If you exclude recent acquisitions it is $141M and organic 117% growth.

The SQ transactional is old reliable. 30% yoy growth quarter after quarter after quarter.

I don’t see any reason not to have some invested in Square. Been a watcher since $11 and buyer since $24. Long term buy and hold and add holding.
