Top UK growth shares to buy if this market bubble bursts

All stock market bubbles pop eventually and I suspect there’s a decent chance this will happen ‘across the pond’ in 2021. Since indexes tend to move in tandem, this may affect share prices here and provide me with a perfect opportunity to buy some of the best UK growth shares at a discount. Here are three I’d definitely be interested in snapping up.

Last Friday’s trading update from music software specialist Focusrite (LSE: TUNE) was more good news for existing holders.

A trusted brand among amateurs and professionals, Focusrite’s products continue to fly out of warehouses. Trading has been so good that revenue, profits and cash are ahead of where management predicted they would be at this stage of the financial year. As a result, the £600m cap suspects it will exceed current market expectations. It also confirmed it has cleared all bank debt.

Naturally, this good news hasn’t gone unnoticed. The valuation is now 28 times forecast earnings. That’s punchy given the global shortage of semiconductors (of which it uses a lot) and the impact this could have on trading. Another thing to consider is whether Focusrite’s existing holders will begin banking profits as restrictions are lifted. So I’m watching from the sidelines for now.

It’s hard to talk about quality stocks and not mention Games Workshop (LSE: GAW). After all, the FTSE 250 member has been one of the best performing UK growth shares over the last five years. Read from source….
