Three top ASX shares leading brokers have named as buys this week are listed below. Here’s why they are bullish on them:
Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT)
According to a note out of Credit Suisse, its analysts have retained their outperform rating and lifted their price target slightly on this energy company’s shares to $1.57. The broker acknowledges that Beach Energy’s performance has been disappointing this year. However, it believes the pullback in its share price has created a buying opportunity for investors. Credit Suisse also appears optimistic that the company’s production will increase over the next 12 months. The Beach share price is trading at $1.21 today.
Healius Ltd (ASX: HLS)
A note out of Macquarie reveals that its analysts have retained their outperform rating and lifted their price target on this healthcare company’s shares to $5.55. The broker made the move on the belief that Healius will continue to benefit from elevated COVID-19 testing volumes for longer despite the global vaccine rollout. Macquarie also sees opportunities for the company’s margins to improve and boost its profits further. The Healius share price is fetching $5.00 on Monday.
Sandfire Resources Ltd (ASX: SFR)
Analysts at Morgan Stanley have retained their overweight rating and $7.95 price target on this copper miner’s shares. This follows news that the company is acquiring the Matsa mining operations in Spain.
