If you’re looking for some investment options for April, then you might want to take a look at the mid cap space.
At this side of the market, there are a number of companies with the potential to grow materially over the next decade or two. This could lead to their shares generating outsized returns for investors if everything goes to plan.
With that in mind, here are two mid cap ASX shares to consider buying:
Nearmap Ltd (ASX: NEA)
The first mid cap ASX share to look at is Nearmap. It is a $990 million aerial imagery technology and location data company with operations in Australia and North America.
Nearmap’s leading products give businesses instant access to high resolution aerial imagery, city-scale 3D datasets, and integrated geospatial tools. The beauty of this, is that users can undertake virtual site visits anywhere there is coverage without leaving the home or office. The company notes that this enables informed decisions, streamlined operations, and meaningful cost savings.
Another positive is that Nearmap has recently bolstered its offering with the launch of several new products and add-ons. This includes an artificial intelligence product which has significant potential.
Goldman Sachs is positive on the company and believes Nearmap can grow its revenue by a CAGR of 15% per annum between FY 2020 and FY 2023. In light of this, the broker has placed a buy rating and $2.95 price target on its shares.
Nuix Limited (ASX: NXL)
Another mid cap ASX share to consider is Nuix. It is a growing provider of investigative analytics and intelligence software.
The company’s Discover, Workstation, and Investigate platforms allow users to transform huge amounts of data from various sources (such as emails, social media, and communications) into actionable intelligence. This is proving particularly important in investigations where there can be hundreds or thousands of files to comb through.
One broker that believes Nuix has a bright future ahead of it is Morgan Stanley. As a result, earlier this month the broker put an overweight rating and $10.75 price target on its shares.
