Is it too late to buy these high-flying shares?

On Wednesday the Australian share market pushed higher and edged ever closer to its 52-week high.

While this was good to see, a few shares went one better and actually reached a new high yesterday.

Three that caught my eye are listed below. Is it too late to invest?

The Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT) share price reached an all-time high of $2.00 on Wednesday. The energy producer has been a big winner from rising oil prices and investors have been fighting to get hold of shares. Last month the company provided its FY 2018 production update which revealed that FY 2018 production came in at the high end of its guidance range and capex at the low end of its guidance. While I think Beach is a quality producer with a great portfolio of assets, I wouldn’t be a buyer unless oil prices climbed notably higher from here.

The LiveTiles Ltd (ASX: LVT) share price surged to an all-time high of 75.5 cents on Wednesday before being placed in a trading halt. The artificial intelligence-focused software company has been on fire this year thanks to the growing popularity of its products and its burgeoning partnership with tech giant Microsoft. While I think that LiveTiles has enormous potential, I wouldn’t be a buyer of its shares until the dust settles on its institutional placement. LiveTiles’ shares are currently halted while it raises $20 million at a discount of 59 cents per share.

The Macquarie Telecom Group Ltd (ASX: MAQ) share price raced to a multi-year high of $24.45 on Wednesday. This week the market responded positively to the data centre, cloud, cyber security, and telecom company’s plans to expand its Macquarie Park Data Centre Campus to 43MW from 10MW. It made the decision in order to meet the growing needs of global hyperscalers and cloud, enterprise, and Government customers. While I think these latest gains make it shares about fair value, I still see a lot of value in a long-term buy and hold investment.
