Keefe, Bruyette & Woods’s latest investment report indicates that Square is presently valued “above the market” and its price target has risen to $250. Experts say its advantage is a growing ecosystem centered on the popular platforms known as Seller and Cash App. They now provide a wide range of tools for carrying out financial and other transactions. For instance, using the Seller app, stores can run the store’s administrative activities as well, such as processing payments, creating online storefronts, managing social networks, scheduling work, paying salaries, and handling other tasks required to run a business.
Additionally, Cash App is being used for obtaining financial services, from paying bills to investing in securities and digital currencies.
Despite its recent acquisitions, Square Inc.’s (SQ) position is expected to strengthen as a consequence of Credit Karma Tax and Tidal. Square will have many options for social commerce, such as Tidal’s music platform.

Meanwhile, payment services are being expanded by new customers as well as by the growth of the existing ones.
