Many of Australia’s top brokers have been busy adjusting their financial models again, leading to the release of a large number of broker notes this week.

Three broker buy ratings that have caught my eye are summarised below. Here’s why brokers think these ASX shares are in the buy zone:

Altium Limited (ASX: ALU)

Analysts at Citi have upgraded this electronic design software company’s shares to a buy rating with an improved price target of $33.50. According to the note, while the broker sees risks to the company achieving its full year guidance, it believes COVID-19 headwinds are easing and demand is improving. It expects this to result in an acceleration in its earnings growth in FY 2022. Citi also believes recent weakness has left its shares trading at an attractive level. The Altium share price is trading at $28.98 today.

Breville Group Ltd (ASX: BRG)

According to a note out of Morgan Stanley, its analysts have retained their overweight rating and increased the price target on this appliance manufacturer’s shares to $35.00. The broker notes that Breville delivered a first half result ahead of its expectations. Looking ahead, Morgan Stanley believes that Breville’s guidance for the full year is conservative and expects it to outperform it. Especially given the strong demand for kitchen appliances. The Breville share price is trading at $30.81 this afternoon.

ELMO Software Ltd (ASX: ELO)

Another note out of Morgan Stanley reveals that its analysts have retained their overweight rating and $9.70 price target on this human resources and payroll platform provider’s shares. This follows the release of its half year results, which were largely pre-released in January. Looking ahead, the broker believes that ELMO is well-placed to achieve the top end of its annualised recurring revenue (ARR) guidance range. The ELMO share price is fetching $6.11 on Wednesday.
