Why I would buy these mid cap growth stars in October

I think that the mid cap space is a great place to look for ideas on the Australian share market.

In this part of the market I believe there are a large number of shares with strong long-term growth potential that could one day propel them into the large cap space.

Three mid cap shares that I like right now are listed below:

Citadel Group Ltd (ASX: CGL)

This software and services company specialises in IT security and data management. Due to the growing amount of data being generated by businesses and how important it is to keep it secure, I believe Citadel is well-positioned to grow over the long-term. Especially given the popularity of its key Citadel-Information Exchange (Citadel-IX) cloud-based enterprise information management platform. This platform allows users to securely access or transfer proprietary and sensitive information remotely. Ltd (ASX: KGN)

I think this ecommerce company could be a great option for patient investors. Thanks to its fast-growing online retail business and expansion into countless other verticals, I believe can continue growing at an above-average rate for some time to come. Over the last 18 months I felt’s shares were always a touch expensive, but thanks to a recent pullback, I feel they now offer a compelling risk/reward for investors.

Macquarie Telecom Group Ltd (ASX: MAQ)

Although it has the word telecom in its name, Macquarie Telecom is nothing like Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS). Thanks to its fast-growing Cloud Services business the company has been growing its profits at a very strong rate over the last couple of years. This is likely to continue over the medium term due to its plans to expand its data centre capacity significantly. I expect this expansion to put Macquarie Telecom in a position to capture the increasing demand for data centre services brought about by the cloud computing boom.
