There are a few S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) dividend shares that have relatively high dividend yields.

Businesses in the ASX 200 are large enough where they are normally generating high levels of cashflow and can fund sizeable dividends.

These two businesses have high dividend payout ratios and high dividend yields:

Charter Hall Long WALE REIT (ASX: CLW)

This is a real estate investment trust (REIT) which is managed by Charter Hall Group (ASX: CHC).

It aims to invest in high quality real estate assets that are predominantly leased to corporate and government tenants on long term leases. It actually has one of the longest weighted average lease expiry (WALE) in the REIT industry, of 14.1 years.

The ASX 200 dividend share has 459 properties worth $4.48 billion.

Those properties are spread across a number of resilient and defensive sectors. Its income exposure is spread across the following: telecommunications (17%), government (15%), grocery and distribution (14%), fuel and convenience (13%), pubs and bottle shops (12%), food manufacturing (10%), waste & recycling (2%) and ‘other’ (16%). ‘Other’ includes retail, banking, finance and security and defence services.

The FY21 half-year result saw continued growth of the business despite all of the COVID-19 impacts. HY21 saw operating earnings per security (EPS) increase by 3.6% to 14.5 cents. The distribution also grew 3.6% to 14.5 cents because it has a 100% payout ratio. It also grew its distribution during 2020 despite COVID-19.

In FY21, it’s expecting to increase its operating EPS by at least 2.8% to 29.1 cents, which translates to a forward distribution yield of 5.9%.
