A man sees some good news on his phone and gives a little cheer.

Are you interested in adding some ASX growth shares to your portfolio this month? If you are, you may want to look at the ones listed below that have recently been named as buys.

Here’s what you need to know about them:

Breville Group Ltd (ASX: BRG)

The first ASX growth share to look at is Breville. It is a leading appliance manufacturer which has been growing at a consistently solid rate for many years. This has been underpinned by its investment in research and development and international expansion.

The good news is that these drivers are still in place and are expected to support further solid growth over the next decade.

It is partly for this reason that the team at Goldman Sachs currently rate Breville as a buy with a $23.40 price target on its shares.

Goldman commented:

We see BRG as having a three-pronged growth strategy: 1) building on secular growth of the portioned and roast & ground (R&G) coffee market and achieving market share gains; 2) new market entry; and 3) options – ecosystem revenue streams.

Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE)

Another ASX growth share that could be a top option for investors is Treasury Wine. It is one of the world’s leading wine companies and the name behind a range of popular brands including Penfolds, 19 Crimes, and Wolf Blass.

After going through a difficult period due to being effectively kicked out of China, Treasury Wine has bounced back strongly.

The good news is that analysts at Morgans believe the company’s growth is only just beginning. As a result, it has put an add rating and $13.93 price target on its shares.

Morgans explained:

TWE owns much loved iconic wine brands, the jewel in the crown being Penfolds. We rate its management team highly. The foundations are now in place for TWE to deliver strong earnings growth from the 2H22 over the next few years. Trading at a material discount to our valuation and other luxury brand owners, TWE is a key pick for us.

This ASX lithium explorer just had a new find, and its share price rocketed 20%

The drill went into overdrive as the Aldoro Resources Ltd (ASX: ARN) share price jumped up by as much as 34% in intraday trade on Tuesday. 

The ASX lithium share closed at 26.5 cents a share, a 20.45% gain after hitting an intraday high of 29.5 cents apiece.

The rally was likely sparked by the company releasing an update on its drilling programme at the Wyemandoo Critical Metal Project in Western Australia.

Drilling results

Aldoro identified key lithium-rubidium targets after completing a total of 29 RC holes for 3,198 metres that ranged from 84 to 201 metres in depth. These holes intersected pegmatites at a range of intervals, the company said.

Aldoro advised many of these intersections have been interpreted as moderately dipping dykes orientated to the northwest or flat-lying sills. 

Quarterly results 

Aldoro has built solid momentum after releasing its quarterly results for the three months ended June 2022 on 27 July.

This update provided a substantial list of drilling results. One key highlight was the engagement of pegmatite processing expert Professor Zhiguo He.

He is conducting a commercialisation review that’s expected to take eight months. The company said an initial shipment of ~300 kilograms of sample ore has been consigned to Professor He in China.

Also in last month’s update, the company advised it had completed a placement of 9.2 million shares priced at 25 cents, raising a total of $2.3 million. 

The purpose of this capital raising was to provide funds to progress the drill program at the Wyemandoo Rb-Li Project. 

This may be why the Aldoro share price has been on a rally of late.

Aldoro share price snapshot

In the last 12 months, this ASX lithium share has fallen by 51%, shedding 36% year to date.

By comparison, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has dropped 7% in a year and 5.6% in 2022 so far.

Aldoro has a market capitalisation of $26.4 million at the time of writing.

The Pilbara Minerals share price has powered 28% higher in a month. What’s been happening?

A smiling woman holds an arm in the air in triumph while also holding a graphic of a fully-charged battery in her other hand representing the Pilbara Minerals share price

The Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS) share price has been rocketing in the last weeks. Over the past month, it has risen by 27.66%.

It has delivered strong outperformance compared to the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) which has only risen 5.27% over the same time period.

Of course, Pilbara Minerals isn’t the only business that may be viewed as an ‘ASX growth share’ which has seen a strong rise over the past month.

In the last month: the Xero Limited (ASX: XRO) share price has risen 14%, the Temple & Webster Group Ltd (ASX: TPW) share price has gone up 35% and the Altium Limited (ASX: ALU) share price has risen 10%.

Part of Pilbara Mineral’s rise may simply be down to the fact that other growth names have also been rising.

Perhaps investors thought that a number of growth names had been sold off too much?

Can strong lithium prices affect the Pilbara Minerals share price?

One of the most important things to remember about commodity businesses is that their revenue, cash flow and net profit after tax (NPAT) are all heavily affected by what the resource price is.

It costs a commodity business roughly the same to produce its resource, whether the commodity price is a bit higher or lower, aside from higher payments to the government when prices are stronger.

Last week, Pilbara Minerals said that it continues to benefit from strong lithium prices.

The ASX lithium share’s eighth Battery Material Exchange (BMX) auction was for a cargo of 5,000 dry metric tonnes (dmt) at a target grade of 5.5% lithia. The highest bid was US$6,350 per dmt, which on a pro rata basis for lithia content (including freight costs) equates to a price of around US$7,012 per dmt.

Pilbara Minerals said:

Strong continues to be received in both participation and bidding by a broad range of qualified buyers with a total of 67 bids received online during the 30-minute auction window.

What do analysts think?

The broker Macquarie has an outperform rating on the Pilbara Minerals share price, with a price target of $4. That implies a possible rise of 33%.

Macquarie thinks that more output from the company’s Ngungaju can help boost sales on the BMX and lead to pleasing cash flow in the coming years.

The broker thinks that profit is going to ramp up over the next couple of years. Its estimates put the Pilbara Minerals share price at 14 times FY22’s estimated earnings and under six times FY23’s estimated earnings.

Ord Minnett also thinks that Pilbara Minerals is a buy, with a price target of $3.50. That implies a possible rise of around 17%.

Pilbara Minerals share price snapshot

Pilbara Minerals shares have dropped by 6% since the beginning of the year, though it has risen around 50% since mid-June.

‘Exciting’ ASX 200 dividend share expected to deliver material returns: expert

Three colleagues stare at a computer screen with serious looks on their faces.

Three colleagues stare at a computer screen with serious looks on their faces.

S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) dividend shares are back in vogue as rising interest rates put the brake on the rapid share price growth investors enjoyed in recent years.

But if you’re on the hunt for dividends from your ASX portfolio you need to do more than simply look at what the companies paid out over the past year.

Investors need to gauge future earnings

Those quoted yields you see on company pages are trailing yields. In other words, backwards looking. And while some ASX 200 dividend shares that offered high yields in FY22 may do so again in FY23, others may not be able to do so.

While gauging future earnings inevitably comes with uncertainties about what the future holds, some research into potential revenue growth, including asset sales, can help investors avoid so-called dividend traps.

With that in mind, we look to one ASX 200 dividend share that Michael Maughan, head of the Tyndall Australian Share Income Fund, believes will deliver “material returns to shareholders” in the year ahead.

ASX 200 dividend share with assets to sell

Asked by Livewire which ASX 200 dividend shares he believes will continue to pay out sustainable yields in the future – from a list that included the big banks and iron ore giants – Maughan singled out Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS).

“The banks are in a period where they do have a positive tailwind,” Maughan said. Adding that, “The more exciting part of that group is Telstra.”

According to Maughan:

It’s had a change in the short term to its core business and it’s returned to growth. The mobile business is growing and the headwinds from the NBN are behind it. And over the medium term, it’s probably one of the few companies we expect will have capital management and material returns to shareholders from asset sales.

Maughan pointed out that Telstra’s recent sale of its Towers business resulted in a billion dollar plus share buyback. And he thinks there’s more to come:

This is because Telstra has fixed infrastructure assets it’s looking to sell. If you go back to when they sold their Towers business, that was a return of over a billion dollars to shareholders. And the fixed assets are more than five times the size of that.

Following Telstra’s half year report in February, the board of the ASX 200 dividend share declared a fully franked interim dividend of 8 cents per share, with a 6 cent ordinary dividend and a 2 cent special dividend. This saw some $940 million returned to shareholders.

Telstra reports its full financial year results this Thursday, 11 August.
