Here’s why brokers think investors ought to buy them next week:

Aristocrat Leisure Limited (ASX: ALL)

According to a note out of Citi, its analysts have retained their buy rating with a slightly trimmed price target of $40.20. Citi notes that US casino industry revenues are sustaining at much higher levels than history but higher supply-chain costs are impacting margins.

Particularly given that Aristocrat holds five of the top 10 premium/leased titles by installed base and has newer machines growing rapidly in popularity. The Aristocrat share price ended the week at $32.88.

Coles Group Ltd (ASX: COL)

A note out of Morgans reveals that its analysts have retained their add rating and $20.00 price target on this supermarket giant’s shares.
