3 outstanding blue chip ASX shares to buy in October


Are you looking for some blue chip ASX shares to buy in October? Well, the three listed below could be great options for a balanced portfolio.

Here’s why I think these are blue chip ASX shares to buy:

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd (ASX: DMP)

I think Domino’s Pizza could be a great blue chip option for investors. Domino’s was a very strong performer over the 2010s and looks well-placed to repeat its heroics over the next decade. This is thanks to its strong brand and management’s long term growth targets. In respect to the latter, Domino’s is aiming deliver same store sales growth of 3% to 6% per annum over the coming years. And longer term, it is looking to grow its store network to a sizeable 5,500 stores by 2033. This is more than double the 2,668 stores it had at the end of FY 2020. If it delivers on this, then it should underpin strong earnings growth over the 2020s.

REA Group Limited (ASX: REA)

Another blue chip share I would buy is REA Group. It is the dominant property listings company in the ANZ region and has a number of growing businesses in other regions. While there’s no doubt that its performance in FY 2021 is likely to be impacted meaningfully by a reduction in listings because of the pandemic, I’m confident that this is just a short term headwind and its growth will accelerate once the crisis passes. This could make it worth considering a long term and patient investment in REA Group shares.

SEEK Limited (ASX: SEK)

A final blue chip share to consider buying is SEEK. This job listings giant is one of my favourite blue chips due to its very positive long term outlook. This is thanks to its domination of the ANZ market and the incredible growth potential of its China-based Zhaopin business. Over the last few years Zhaopin has established itself as one of the leaders in the massive Chinese online job listings market. Combined, I believe SEEK can deliver strong earnings growth over the next decade and beyond.
