If you’re looking for blue chip ASX 200 shares to buy, then you may want to check out the two listed below that brokers are particularly positive on.

Here’s what you need to know about them:

Goodman Group (ASX: GMG)

The first ASX 200 blue chip share to buy could be Goodman. It is a leading industrial property company with a world class portfolio of assets spanning the globe.

It has been growing at a strong rate for years and shows no signs of slowing. In fact, management recently upgraded its earnings guidance for FY 2023. This has been driven by ongoing tailwinds for industrial property underpinning strong market rent growth.

This went down well with Citi, which responded by retaining its buy rating with an improved price target of $24.30. Citi commented:

The update highlighted ongoing tailwinds for industrial with strong market rent growth improving the future rental upside on GMG’s book. Record low vacancy has driven ongoing development demand resulting in a strong development workbook with $13bn in WIP, with near-term growth in developments from less time taken to develop (which will boost annual earnings).

Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)

Another ASX 200 blue chip share that is rated highly by analysts is telco giant Telstra.

Morgans is very positive on the company due to favourable industry conditions and the potential for value to be unlocked from asset divestments. Its analysts currently have an add rating and $4.70 price target on its shares. The broker commented:

Telco has the strongest tailwinds in a decade with an increasingly rational market, price rises across the majors and the criticality of telco increasingly recognised. The last major mobile operator Vodafone/TPG increased mobile prices by ~$5 per month in January 2023 and all key players are behaving economically rational. This combines with catalysts including the potential for InfraCo value release following the legal restructure.
