Top broker thinks G8 Education Ltd shares are worth $5.10

Although the G8 Education Ltd (ASX: GEM) share price has risen an impressive 22% during the last three months, one leading broker believes that it can still keep climbing higher.

According to a note out of Ord Minnett this morning, the broker has retained its buy rating on the childcare centre operator and increased the price target on its shares to $5.10.

With G8 Education’s shares finishing the day at $4.58, Ord Minnett’s price target implies potential upside of over 11%.

Ord Minnett believes that the industry outlook is positive, with supply moderating and occupancy improving.

Furthermore, favourable changes to funding are expected to make childcare more affordable next year.

G8 Education was recently named as one of three dividend shares to buy by one Motley Fool contributor.

We hear it over and over from investors, "I wish I had bought Altium or Afterpay when they were first recommended by The Motley Fool. I'd be sitting on a gold mine!" And it's true.

And while Altium and Afterpay have had a good run, we think these 5 other stocks are screaming buys. And you can buy them now for less than $5 a share!
