These dividend shares have recently been rated as buys and are tipped to provide above average yields in the coming years.
Here’s what you need to know about these dividend shares:
Aventus Group (ASX: AVN)
The first ASX dividend share to look at is Aventus. It is a fully integrated owner, manager, and developer of large format retail centres with a portfolio of 20 centres valued at $2.3 billion. At the end of FY 2021, the company had 593 tenancies and a sky high occupancy rate of 98.8%.
This went down well with analysts at Goldman Sachs. They currently have a buy rating and $3.40 price target on its shares. This compares to the current Aventus share price of $3.21.
Goldman is also forecasting dividends of 17.8 cents per share in FY 2022 and then 19.4 cents per share in FY 2023. Based on the its current share price, this will mean generous yields of 5.5% and 6%, respectively, over the next two years.
Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC)
Another ASX dividend share to look at is this banking giant. It could be a good option for income investors that don’t already have meaningful exposure to the sector. This is due to its improving performance, cost cutting plans, and strong balance sheet.
The team at Citi are very positive on the bank. The broker currently has a buy rating and $30.00 price target on Westpac’s shares. This compares very favourably to the latest Westpac share price of $25.17.
In addition, Citi is forecasting fully franked dividends of $1.16 per share in FY 2021 and then $1.30 per share in FY 2022. This represents yields of 4.6% and 5.1%, respectively.
