This week both Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ASX: ANZ) and National Australia Bank Ltd (ASX: NAB) released their full year results and announced final dividends that were in line with the prior corresponding period.
I suspect that this may be the case again in FY 2019 due to the difficult trading conditions that the banks are facing.
So if you’re on the lookout for dividends with strong growth potential, then the three shares below could be the ones to consider. Here’s why:
Collins Foods Ltd (ASX: CKF)
Although this operator of KFC and Taco Bell restaurants doesn’t offer the most generous yield on the local market, I believe the international expansion of its KFC network and the roll out of Taco Bell in Australia could lead to above-average earnings and dividend growth over the next decade. Collins Foods shares currently offer a trailing fully franked 2.6% yield.
Rural Funds Group (ASX: RFF)
Rural Funds is a real estate investment trust which owns a total of 44 properties across six different sectors including wine, cattle, and almond production. These properties have a weighted average lease expiry of 12.3 years, which provides income stability and long-term rental growth through indexation mechanisms. In FY 2019 the Rural Funds board intends to lift its distribution to 10.43 cents per unit, equating to a forward yield of 4.9%.
Super Retail Group Ltd (ASX: SUL)
This retailer’s shares currently offer a generous trailing fully franked 6.7% dividend. The good news is that I believe this dividend can grow further thanks to the positive start it has made in FY 2019. Last month Super Retail advised that all its businesses had delivered solid like for likes sales growth year to date. The Macpac business was the star of the show with like for like sales growing 8.4% and total sales climbing 17.6% on the prior corresponding period.
And don't miss out on this dividend share which has been tipped to deliver strong long-term growth.
You might not know this market leader's name, but it's rapidly expanding into a highly profitable niche market here in Australia. Even better, the shares boast a strong, fully franked dividend that should balloon in the years to come. In other words, we're looking at the holy grail of incredible long-term growth potential AND income you can watch accruing in your account in real time!
