If you have room in your portfolio for a few growth shares, then I think the three listed below could be top options.
I believe all three are well-positioned to deliver above-average earnings growth over the next few years and could generate strong returns for investors. Here’s why I’m positive on them and would invest $3,000 across their shares:
Bubs Australia Ltd (ASX: BUB)
The first growth share to look at is Bubs. It is a goat’s milk-focused infant formula and baby food company. Whilst I’ve been a fan of Bubs for a while, it is only really now that I think it is investment grade. This is because for a long time its strong sales growth was coming with significant losses. This led to the company burning through cash at a rapid rate. However, Bubs recently reported positive operating cashflow of $2.3 million on record quarterly revenue of $19.7 million. I’m optimistic the company has now reached a scale which will make its operations more and more profitable over the coming years. As a result, I think it could be a good long term option for investors.
Pro Medicus Limited (ASX: PME)
Another growth share that I think has a lot of potential is Pro Medicus. This healthcare technology company provides radiology IT software and services to hospitals, imaging centres, and healthcare groups. The product in its portfolio that I’m most excited about is the popular Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform. It delivers fast, multi-dimensional images which are streamed via an intelligent thin-client viewer. Demand for Visage 7 has been strong and the company recently announced a major new contract with one of the highest rated hospitals in the United States. In addition to this, it revealed that it has a number of sales opportunities in its pipeline that it is working on. I believe this bodes well for its future growth.
A final ASX growth share I think investors ought to consider buying is Xero. I think the provider of cloud-based business and accounting software is arguably one of best growth shares on offer on the ASX. This is due to the increasing demand for its platform from small businesses and the stickiness of its product. Combined, they are resulting in significant recurring revenues which I feel are only likely to grow larger in the coming years as more and more businesses move over to the cloud.
