3 top shares I want in my portfolio

There certainly is a lot of quality to choose from on the Australian share market.

But three shares that are at the top of their game right now and top of my shopping listed are listed below.

Here’s why I would add them to my portfolio:

Aristocrat Leisure Limited (ASX: ALL)

Aristocrat Leisure has had a stunning 12 months and this has been deservedly reflected in its share price gain of 38.5%. As well as a strong performance from its core business, investors appear to have been especially impressed with the success of its digital business. And rightly so. In its half-year results the company advised that the number of daily active users had grown to a staggering 8.3 million. The recurring revenues that these users generate is highly attractive in my opinion and makes it a standout pick. I’m not the only one that thinks this. Earlier this week Deutsche Bank retained its buy rating and lifted the price target on Aristocrat Leisure’s shares to $41.10.

BHP Billiton Limited (ASX: BHP)

This afternoon President Trump did what he has long threatened to do and slapped US$34 billion worth of trade tariffs on Chinese goods. This has unsurprisingly led to China hitting back with tariffs of its own, accusing the United States of launching the largest trade war in history. While there had been fears that this could stifle global economic growth and lead to a decline in commodity prices, Goldman Sachs doesn’t expect this to be the case. If Goldman is on the money with this prediction then BHP could be positioned perfectly to continue its strong run in FY 2019.

Bingo Industries Ltd (ASX: BIN)

Bingo Industries is a waste management company that has been kicking goals since listing on the Australian share market last year. The outperformance of its prospectus forecasts and its long-term growth plans appear to have put Bingo on the radar of many investors. In respect to the latter, Bingo intends to expand its predominantly NSW-based business nationwide over the next decade. I believe this and the industry’s high barriers of entry could put Bingo in a position to grow its earnings at an above-average rate for many years to come.
