Our market is expected to open on a positive foot on Tuesday and Morgans is recommending these ASX shares to buy if you want to make the most of the next leg in the market rally.
The futures market is tipping a more than 1% gain for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (Index:^AXJO) cum Tuesday after Wall Street hit another record high.
Don’t be put off by high valuations. Morgans is urging investors to maintain an overweight position on equities.
Best ASX investment strategy
The global roll-out of COVID-19 vaccinations paint a bright picture for risk assets. The broker is pro-risk for the next six to 12 months.
“Ultimately, we think investors need to be nimble across multiple themes (value, growth, yield, commodities, tech) as a bumpy road to recovery is likely to see valuations move through over-valued and under-valued territory,” said Morgans.
“Equity investors need to consistently review their exposures, and to not be afraid to re-cycle profits into relative cheaper opportunities which we are finding are regularly presenting in the current climate.”
ASX financial shares to bank on
The broker believes that ASX domestic cyclical shares and those most beaten down by the pandemic represent the best opportunity.
Why you should buy ASX commodity shares
Resources and agriculture shares are also favoured by the broker. Morgans is bullish about commodities due to improving demand, supply-side constraints, inflation worries and expected weakness in the US dollar.
“Our Best ideas profile several domestic cyclicals and small caps supported by their lower relative valuations and leverage to domestic activity,” added the broker.
Other ASX shares on the buy list
Finally, another thematic to watch is market volatility. The broker noted that some “high-quality names” have been sold-off recently and the dip represents a buying opportunity as well.
