I generally prefer to invest in ASX growth shares rather than their dividend-paying cousins. As a long-term shareholder, ASX growth shares enable me to benefit from tax-free compounding over many years. With dividend shares, however, you are required to pay tax every time you receive a dividend. So even if those dividends are reinvested, this occurs using after-tax dollars.
With this in mind, below are 3 exciting ASX growth shares I believe to be buys next week.
Avita Medical Ltd (ASX: AVH)
Avita Medical develops and markets a range of respiratory and regenerative medical products. The first product Avita brought to market was a spray-on skin treatment used for burns victims named ‘Recell’. In addition to being TGA approved in Australia, Recell is FDA approved in the USA and CE-marked in Europe.
Avita recently released results for the March quarter, which were its strongest since launching in the US. This quarter saw its total revenue jump 67% over the prior corresponding period. This is boosted to an 84% revenue increase when the time frame is extended to the 9 month period ending 31 March 2020.
Avita has largely been insulated from the coronavirus-led economic fallout. This is predominantly because treatment for burns patients tends to be neither elective or deferrable. Furthermore, the company is looking to use the Recell system to treat vitiligo and has plans to submit an application to the FDA in June 2020.
Nearmap Ltd (ASX: NEA)
I can’t go past Nearmap when it come to ASX growth shares. The Aussie aerial imagery and data insights company has been consistently growing its subscriber base, particularly across its North American segment. It has also been steadily improving its average revenue per subscription. Furthermore, the company recently launched another new product with Nearmap AI.
On Tuesday this week, I wrote that I believed Nearmap’s shares were still a buy, despite having risen more than 100% over the past 2 months. Since then, they have jumped again following a positive market update. The update stated that the company’s churn had dropped and its annualised contract value (ACV) has continued to grow. Nearmap’s ACV now exceeds $102 million. Additionally the company advised it is on track to be cash flow breakeven by the end of June. No doubt, all this good news put some investors’ fears to rest. This resulted in Nearmap’s share price surging by a further 16.67% on Thursday.
Despite the current price gains, I still see the potential for ongoing value with Nearmap shares. The world is a big place, and I believe Nearmap has plenty of runway to expand its current market segments and break into new ones.
Audinate Group Ltd (ASX: AD8)
My 3rd pick of ASX growth shares to buy next week is Audinate. This company develops an audio-visual, industry-leading, media networking solution, called Dante. A mouth-full, I know! But what Dante allows audio professionals to do is use standard Ethernet networks to deliver uncompressed, multi-channel, low-latency audio. This removes the need for expensive cabling and more rigid and complicated networks.
The solution’s wide-spread adoption by manufacturers has meant that more and more Dante devices are now able to be connected together. Additionally, a Dante network offers superior flexibility, with changes able to be made with the touch of a button.
As social distancing restrictions were implemented throughout the world, Audinate was wary of possible impacts to its revenue resulting from reduced demand. However, the company’s strong balance sheet and recent revenue growth have ensured its resilience through the worst of the pandemic’s economic fallout so far. As economies around the world begin to open up, I believe strong demand for Audinate’s product will deliver continued company and share price growth.
