Where I would invest my ANZ Bank and Westpac Banking Corp dividends

Yesterday the shares of Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ASX: ANZ) and Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC) went ex-dividend, which means shareholders that owned their shares prior to yesterday’s market open can now look forward to a generous payout in December.

ANZ will pay a fully franked 80 cents per share final dividend and Westpac will pay a fully franked 94 cents per share.

Whilst some income investors will live off these dividends, others may wish to reinvest them in the market. These three shares are where I would reinvest these dividends:

Mayne Pharma Group Ltd (ASX: MYX)

Mayne Pharma is an Adelaide-based pharmaceutical company with extremely strong growth ahead of it in my opinion. On top of its existing drugs, the company has a pipeline of generic drugs with estimated annual sales potential in the US market of greater than US$7 billion. Whilst it is currently being investigated by the US Department of Justice regarding price-fixing, management doesn’t believe any penalties imposed will be material to earnings.

Webjet Limited (ASX: WEB)

With Webjet’s shares down around 16% in the last 30 days, this incredible growth share is starting to look like a bargain in my opinion. Concerns over short term weakness in the travel industry appear to be the cause of the online travel agent’s drop. But in the medium term I believe that things will return to normal. This makes now an opportune time to buy. Especially because as more consumers switch to online travel bookings, Webjet stands to benefit greatly.

WiseTech Global Ltd (ASX: WTC)

I believe this cloud-based supply chain management software provider could be a fantastic buy and hold investment. WiseTech Global has over 6,000 customers using its software, including some of the world’s largest logistics companies. This strong demand led the company to upgrade its full year guidance in August. Management now expects EBITDA in the region of $50 million to $53 million in FY 2017, which will be approximately 59% to 68% higher year on year.

Finally if you're looking at reinvesting for more income then I would highly recommend this top dividend share. A strong yield and potential share price gains make this a great investment idea in my opinion.
