Why Wesfarmers and these All Ords shares are flying high this week

James Mickleboro
ASX shares soaring higher

The All Ordinaries index was in fine form on Tuesday. The benchmark index stormed 1.25% higher to finish the day at 6,943.6 points.

Whilst the majority of shares pushed higher yesterday, a few stood out with gains that took them to new highs.

Here’s why these All Ordinaries shares have just hit 52-week highs or better:

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd (ASX: DMP)

The Domino’s Pizza share price climbed to a 52-week high of $55.66 on Tuesday. The pizza chain operator’s shares have been rising strongly over the last four months following the release of its full year results. Although those results were not outstanding, they were better than many expected. Furthermore, investors appear pleased with the company’s global store expansion plans. This is expected to drive strong earnings growth over the next decade. One broker that is confident is Goldman Sachs. On Tuesday it retained its conviction buy rating and lifted its price target to $60.50.

Macquarie Telecom Group Ltd (ASX: MAQ)

The Macquarie Telecom share price hit a multi-year high of $24.50 yesterday. Investors appear to have been buying the telecom, data centre, and cloud services provider’s shares due to its exposure to the cloud computing boom. Also supporting its shares was a recent contract win with the ATO. Macquarie Telecom will provide Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) and cyber security services estimated to be worth approximately $20 million over an initial three-year term.

Wesfarmers Ltd (ASX: WES)

The Wesfarmers share price hit an all-time high of $43.30 on Tuesday. Whilst the conglomerate’s shares have been strong performers over the last 12 months, they have gone up a gear in recent months. This appears to have been driven by investor optimism due to the housing market rebound. As a number of Wesfarmers’ brands have exposure to the housing market and consumer spending, investors appear confident that FY 2020 will be a strong year. In addition to this, demand for blue chip income in this low interest rate environment has supported the buy side.
