Investors that are interested in boosting their income portfolio with some dividend shares might want to look at the ones listed below.
Here’s what you need to know about these top dividend shares:
Australia and New Zealand Banking GrpLtd (ASX: ANZ)
The first ASX dividend share to buy is ANZ. It could be a good option in the banking sector due to its strong position in commercial banking. This gives it some protection from the margins pressures in retail banking from aggressive competition for mortgages.
It is for this reason that Macquarie currently has an outperform rating and $30.00 price target on the bank’s shares. As for dividends, the broker is forecasting dividends per share of 145 cents in FY 2022 and 150 cents in FY 2023.
Based on the current ANZ share price of $28.39, this equates to fully franked yields of 5.1% and 5.3%, respectively, over the next two years.
Bapcor Ltd (ASX: BAP)
Bapcor could be an ASX dividend share to buy. Through brands including Autobarn, Burson Auto Parts and Midas, it is Australia’s leading provider of vehicle parts, accessories, equipment, service and solutions.
Its shares have come under significant pressure in recent weeks following the unceremonious exit of its CEO. While this is disappointing for shareholders, it could be a buying opportunity for non-shareholders.
That’s the view of the team at Credit Suisse. It recently retained its outperform rating with a trimmed price target of $7.90. The broker remains positive on Bapcor’s earnings and dividend outlook. In respect to the latter, the broker is forecasting fully franked dividends of 23 cents in FY 2022 and 24.6 cents in FY 2023.
Based on the current Bapcor share price of $6.92, this will mean yields of 3.3% and 3.6%, respectively.
