Could these 3 small cap share ideas juice your ASX portfolio?

Credit: Didriks

Catapult Group International Ltd (ASX: CAT), Gentrack Group Ltd (ASX: GTK) and Austock Group Limited (ASX: ACK) shares look like long-term winners.

But, can they juice the returns of your ASX portfolio?


Catapult is a Melbourne-based sports analytics and technology business. The company is the market leader of GPS technology for professional sporting teams. You may have noticed the small GPS units that sit between the shoulders of football, cricket or NBA players.

The company is somewhat speculative, with a valuation to match. However, following a recent fall in its share price; some long-term, enterprising investors may think it is an opportunity for an outside shot at success.


Gentrack is a Kiwi software business, which specialises in services for airports and utility companies. Gentrack has wasted no time swooping in on the UK water market, which recently deregulated.

While the company’s share price has shot up and I wouldn’t call it a ‘bargain’ in a conventional sense, I think it holds long-term slow-growth potential.


This small financial company is relatively unknown but it has been a long-term success for its loyal shareholders – its share price is up 530% in five years. Austock is one of the leaders in Insurance/Investment Bonds. These products might seem like a complicated investment at first, but I believe more investors will be taking advantage of Austock’s tax-effective products in the future.

Foolish Takeaway

These small cap companies could add some fuel for your portfolio’s mule. Some pep in your step. And some gas to your…asymmetric return profile.

However, these companies should be considered ‘higher risk’ at today’s prices, so approach them with your eyes wide open.
