If you are looking to strengthen your portfolio with some ASX 200 shares, you may want to look at the two listed below.

Both of these ASX 200 shares are highly rated and have recently been named as buys. Here’s what you need to know about them:

Bapcor Ltd (ASX: BAP)

The first ASX 200 share to look at is Bapcor. It is the Asia Pacific region’s leading provider of vehicle parts, accessories, equipment, service and solutions. It was on form again in FY 2021, delivering a 20.4% increase in revenue to $1,761.7 million and a 46.5% jump in pro forma net profit after tax to $130.1 million. This was driven by growth across the business. Pleasingly, more of the same is expected over the 2020s thanks to its strong market position and bold expansions plans.

The team at Credit Suisse remain positive on its long term growth potential. Its analysts currently have an outperform rating and $9.20 price target on its shares. This compares to the current Bapcor share price of $7.59.

Xero Limited (ASX: XRO)

Another ASX 200 share to look at is Xero. It is a fast-growing cloud-based accounting solution provider to small and medium sized businesses. Xero’s rapid growth in recent years has been driven by the shift to the cloud, its global expansion, and a series of bolt-on acquisitions. The good news is that the company still has a very long runway for growth. At the end of FY 2021, Xero had 2.74 million subscribers. This compares to its total addressable market of 45 million subscribers.

Goldman Sachs believes the company has multi-decade strong revenue growth potential. As a result, the broker has a buy rating and $165.00 price target on Xero’s shares. This compares to the current Xero share price of $149.95.
