4 fast-growing dividends for income investors

One concern that investors have about investing in bank shares such as Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ASX: ANZ) and Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX: CBA) is that the new bank levy may mean a cut to their dividends.

So for investors that want to avoid the banks this year, here are four fast-growing dividend shares to consider snapping up today:

Amaysim Australia Ltd (ASX: AYS)

This fast-growing telco company’s shares currently provide a trailing partially franked 4.5% dividend. Thanks to its expansion into offering low-cost NBN plans, I believe Amaysim is well-positioned to grow both its earnings and this dividend at a strong rate over the next few years.

Baby Bunting Group Ltd (ASX: BBN)

While this baby products retailer’s trailing 4.3% fully franked dividend is unlikely to grow this year, I believe that in the following years it has the potential to grow strongly. This year the closure of competitors and their subsequent clearance sales is expected to weigh on its performance and result in flat earnings. But when this short-term headwind passes, Baby Bunting will be free to gain even more market share.

Blackmores Limited (ASX: BKL)

Another company which I think has the potential to grow strongly over the coming years is Blackmores. The health supplements company may have been forced to cut its dividend in FY 2017, but I expect it will return to growth again this year. While a trailing fully franked 1.6% dividend may not be appetising to income investors, in time I expect the yield on cost to widen considerably.

Helloworld Ltd (ASX: HLO)

This travel company’s shares currently provide a trailing fully franked 2.8% dividend. Like Blackmores, this isn’t the biggest yield on the market at the moment. But in time I expect its dividend will grow strongly as demand for its integrated service offering continues to develop and grow. This year the company expects earnings to increase by upwards of 21% year-on-year.

Here's a fifth dividend share not to be missed out on this year.
