5 top shares that I would buy in April

With the Easter break within sight, today marks the last day of trade in the first-quarter of 2018.

When the market resumes trade in April, here are five shares that I would be interested in buying.

A2 Milk Company Ltd (ASX: A2M)

This infant formula and dairy company’s shares have come under significant pressure this week after Nestle announced plans to launch an a2 protein-only infant formula product under its Illuma brand in China. I believe the a2 brand is strong enough to fend off this challenge and continue its growth, but it certainly will be worth keeping a close eye on market dynamics.

BHP Billiton Limited (ASX: BHP)

Concerns over global trade wars and the negative impact they could have on economic growth have weighed heavily on the resources sector over the last couple of weeks. This has led to the BHP Billiton share price giving back a good portion of its recent gains. I think this has created a buying opportunity for investors.

Bingo Industries Ltd (ASX: BIN)

Although its shares have bounced back strongly from a sell-off last week brought about by the Queensland government introducing a waste dumping levy, I still think they are great value. Especially considering the waste management company’s strong long-term growth prospects and the fact that this levy has actually been deemed a net positive for Bingo by Goldman Sachs.

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd. (ASX: DMP)

In the short-term I think that an investment in this pizza chain operator could be reasonably volatile and prone to swings to both the upside and downside due to negative investor sentiment and heavy insider selling. But in the long-term I believe its expanding margins and sizeable store roll out plan will lead to strong earnings growth that takes its shares notably higher again. This could make it worth considering a patient investment.

Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)

With its shares close to a multi-year low, I think Telstra could be a great option for investors. This is because I don’t believe its future is as bleak as many think. The arrival of 5G internet and the potential write down of the NBN by the Federal Government, could lead to the telco giant enjoying a meaningful lift in margins over the coming two years.
