Are you looking to add to your income portfolio in the near future? If you are, then you might want to look at the ASX dividend shares listed below.
Here’s what you need to know about them:
National Storage REIT (ASX: NSR)
The first ASX dividend share to look at is National Storage. It is one of the ANZ region’s largest self storage operators with over 200 centres. From these centres, it tailors self-storage solutions to residential and commercial customers.
Thanks to its centre development and acquisition plans and the favourable housing cycle, National Storage looks well-placed for growth in the coming years.
For now, in FY 2021, the company expects to report underlying earnings per share of 7.7 cents to 8.3 cents. From this, it plans to pay 90% to 100% out to shareholders as distributions.
Based on the current National Storage share price and the middle of these guidance ranges, its shares offer investors a 3.8% dividend yield.
Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)
Another ASX dividend share for income investors to consider is Telstra. After a few years of struggles, this telco giant’s outlook is improving greatly.
This due to rational competition in the telco industry, the easing NBN headwind, its T22 strategy, its leadership position in 5G internet, and its plan to split into three separate businesses. The latter is expected to simplify its operations and allow Telstra to take advantage of potential monetisation opportunities for non-core assets.
Goldman Sachs is positive on Telstra. It recently retained its buy rating and $4.00 price target on the company’s shares.
The broker also continues to forecast the company paying a 16 cents per share fully franked dividend for the foreseeable future. Based on the current Telstra share price, this will mean a very attractive 4.6% dividend yield over the next 12 months.
