2 ASX shares rated as strong buys by brokers


There are plenty of opinions out there on different ASX shares. Some stocks are rated as buys by multiple brokers.

If a business is seen as an opportunity by multiple analysts who think there is plenty of upside, then there could be an opportunity there. It is possible that all of those analysts are wrong at the same time though. So, keep that in mind.

As the name may suggest, Tyro is a payments business. Its payment terminals are being used by many thousands of businesses around the country such as cafes.

The Tyro Payments share price has fallen by almost 60% over the past six months, with a 46% drop since the start of the year.

This business is rated as a buy by four brokers, including Ord Minnett and Morgans.

Brokers noted that margins and costs were worse than expected. However, despite the disappointment, brokers are expecting growth from the business.

Tyro is expected to show that transaction volume growth will help the ASX share’s margins.

Management pointed out that the second half is seeing strong momentum. January transaction value was up 35% to $2.7 billion and the February transaction value (to 18 February) was up 50% to $1.8 billion. E-commerce transactions soared 836% to $36.5 million. The payments business gross profit jumped 24% to $11.1 million.

The Ord Minnett price target is $3 on Tyro and the Morgans share price target is $2.68.
