3 growth shares at the top of my shopping list

The ASX is full of great businesses and sadly I don’t own some of them.

Here are three shares that I really want to own in the future if I can buy them at a good price:

REA Group Limited (ASX: REA)

REA Group has stakes in several leading property websites around the world. It currently has a market capitalisation of $8.3 billion.

The owner of has a great competitive advantage over its rivals having built up the site to have the most houses on offer which attracts the most prospective buyers. This virtuous circle helps it remain the number one property site in Australia.

I really want to own REA Group because it has great financial metrics, a great balance sheet, an impressive growth runway and would give good exposure to the property market without owning property.

REA Group is trading at 31x FY18’s estimated earnings with a grossed-up dividend yield of 1.94%. I will be very interested in buying REA Group shares if the price goes under $50 again.

MFF Capital Investments Ltd (ASX: MFF)

MFF Capital is a listed investment company run by Magellan Financial Group Ltd (ASX: MFG). It currently has a market capitalisation of $928 million.

Most Australians don’t have much exposure to overseas-listed companies. MFF Capital is a great way to get that exposure, particularly with its impressive performance. Over the last five years it has returned an average of 24.1% per annum.

MFF is currently trading with a grossed-up dividend yield of 1.48%.

Crown Resorts Ltd (ASX: CWN)

Crown Resorts is one of Australia’s largest entertainment companies with a market capitalisation of $9.2 billion.

There is a growing tourism boom, particularly from Asia. Australia and some companies can significantly benefit if they take the right action. Crown Resorts has a number of projects planned over the next decade that could give a major boost to revenue and profit.

Crown is currently trading at 21x FY18’s estimated earnings with a partially franked dividend yield of 4.7%. I will be looking at Crown shares if they go under $12 again.

Foolish takeaway

I want to buy all three of the above companies, but it has to be for the right price. MFF Capital looks the most attractive to me at the current prices.

Top 3 ASX Blue Chips To Buy In 2017

For many, blue chip stocks means stability, profitability and regular dividends, often fully franked..

But knowing which blue chips to buy, and when, can be fraught with danger.

The Motley Fool's in-house analyst team has poured over thousands of hours worth of proprietary research to bring you the names of "The Motley Fool's Top 3 Blue Chip Stocks for 2017."

Each one pays a fully franked dividend. Each one has not only grown its profits, but has also grown its dividend. One increased it by a whopping 33%, while another trades on a grossed up (fully franked) dividend yield of almost 7%.

If you're expecting to see the likes of Commonwealth Bank, Telstra and Wesfarmers shares on this list, you'll be sorely disappointed. Not only are their dividends growing at a snail's pace, their profits are under pressure too due to the increasing competitive environment.

The contrast to these "new breed" blue chips couldn't be greater... especially the very real prospect of significant share price gains, something that's looking less likely from the usual blue chip suspects.

The names of these Top 3 ASX Blue Chips are included in this specially prepared free report. But you will have to hurry. Depending on demand - and how quickly the share prices of these companies moves - we may be forced to remove this report.
