It has been another busy week for Australia’s top brokers. This has led to the release of a large number of broker notes.

Three broker buy ratings that you might want to know more about are summarised below. Here’s why brokers think these ASX shares are in the buy zone:

Breville Group Ltd (ASX: BRG)

According to a note out of Macquarie, its analysts have retained their outperform rating and $34.37 price target on this appliance manufacturer’s shares. This follows management comments at its annual general meeting this week which revealed that the company is performing in line with expectations. Macquarie also notes that demand remains solid, particularly for coffee machines, and supply chain issues have largely been avoided. The Breville share price is trading at $29.74 this afternoon.

Hipages Group Holdings Ltd (ASX: HPG)

A note out of Goldman Sachs reveals that its analysts have retained their buy rating and lifted their price on this tradie services marketplace provider’s shares to $4.95. The broker notes that Hipages is evolving from a lead-sourcing service for tradies to a comprehensive trade services platform. It believes this leaves it well-placed for grow over the long term. Particularly given the highly supportive macro environment, tailwinds from digitisation and a shift to online, early signs of execution on a solid adjacency strategy, and growth in its total addressable market beyond residential trade services. The Hipages share price is fetching $3.99 today.

Xero Limited (ASX: XRO)

Analysts at Credit Suisse have retained their outperform rating and $160.00 price target on this cloud accounting platform provider’s shares following its half year results. While Xero’s result fell short of the market’s expectations, it was actually ahead of Credit Suisse’s estimates. All in all, the broker remains positive on the future and expects its average revenue per user metric to be a key driver of growth. The Xero share price is trading at $140.29 on Friday afternoon.
