    Tech: PayPal + Pinterest = PayPin? PinPal?

    Tech: PayPal + Pinterest = PayPin? PinPal?

    We talk about the rumor of the week -- Paypal's late stage talks to acquire Pinterest.
    The move would be a reach outside the payment company's core competency,  but could unlock better monetization opportunities for Pinterest and give PayPal some digital real estate to explore marketplace and commerce activity.
    We're shareholders of both and talk about why the deal makes sense, why it might not make sense, and what to keep in mind if a company you own is getting bought.
    Stocks: PINS, PYPL

    Tech: Informatica, Informally

    We take a listener suggestion and look at Informatica, a company that makes it easy for businesses to use AI to integrate, manage, and parse data so that customers can do something useful with it.
    The name might be familiar to long-time tech investors -- it was public for over 15 years before being taken private. We explain the company's history, transition to the subscription model, and leadership changes as it prepares for a second act on the market.
