A lot of ‘mum and dad’ investors like to scour the internet for news as to what to shares some of Australia’s best professional fund managers are buying for their investment portfolios.
After all if the professionals do the most research, have the most experience, and hire the smartest stock pickers going, then they should own the best stocks right?
It doesn’t quite work that way in practice as no one has a market-beating magic wand, but it’s still worth knowing what some of Australia’s leading small-cap investors are buying.
Clime Asset Management today revealed four fast-rising businesses it’s bought recently, so let’s take a look at them to consider why the pro fundies might like them and whether they have more gas in the tank.
Afterpay Touch Group Ltd (ASX: APT) is the buy-now-pay-later business that has nearly tripled in value over just the past year largely on the back of its rapid growth in the U.S. market. Clime bought into it at $3.43 and reckons “web analytics data” suggests its U.S. growth is set to “beat expectations’ for FY 2020, but it doesn’t rule out capital raisings in the “medium term”.
Bravura Solutions Limited (ASX: BVS) shares lost 7.3% today, but are still up 66% over the past year. Clime likes the software business due to its quality, offering, and large global market opportunity.
Navigator Global Investments (ASX: NGI) is the parent company of US-based hedge fund Lighthouse Investment Partners, according to Clime it has a monster 6.9% dividend yield and “abundance” of growth opportunities. Sounds good.
Jumbo Interactive Ltd (ASX: JIN) stock lost 6.3% today, but has still more than tripled over the past year. Clime likes the online lottery operator due to its strong balance sheet, high levels of profitability and margins. It’s also a beneficiary of the ongoing migration of lottery ticket sales over the internet, rather than over-the-counter at your local shop.
One ASX Stock For An Estimated $US22 Billion Marijuana Market
A little-known ASX company just unlocked what some experts think could be the key to profiting off the coming marijuana boom.
