Last week saw a large number of broker notes hitting the wires once again. Three buy ratings that caught my eye are summarised below.
Here’s why brokers think investors ought to buy them next week:
Bega Cheese Ltd (ASX: BGA)
According to a note out of UBS, its analysts have retained their buy rating but cut the price target on this food company’s shares to $5.60. Its analysts believe that concerns over its balance sheet are unwarranted and they don’t expect its debt to increase too much this year. Overall, the broker believes its shares are trading at a very attractive level and offer significant upside potential over the next 12 months. Whilst I agree that its shares look decent value, I think there are better options in the industry for investors to choose from.
People Infrastructure Ltd (ASX: PPE)
A note out of Ord Minnett reveals that its analysts have retained their buy rating and lifted the price target on this workforce management company’s shares to $3.74. According to the note, People Infrastructure delivered a full year profit in line with its expectations in FY 2019. The broker expects more growth in the new financial year thanks partly to cross selling opportunities and its exposure to the healthcare sector. I agree with Ord Minnett on this one and feel it could be a great option for investors looking for investments at the small end of the market.
Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)
Analysts at Morgans have retained their add rating but cut the price target on this telco giant’s shares ever so slightly to $4.46. According to the note, the broker has adjusted its price target to reflect Telstra’s EBITDA downgrade for FY 2020 following the NBN’s roll out guidance revision. Regardless of this, Morgans remains positive on Telstra due to the return of rational competition and continues to forecast a 16 cents per share fully franked dividend for FY 2020 and FY 2021. I agree with Morgans on Telstra and feel it would be a good option for income investors in this low interest rate environment.
5 stocks under $5
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!
