If you’re looking for some dividend shares to buy in January, then you may want to look at the ones listed below.

Here’s why analysts rate them as buys:

Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT (ASX: CQE)

The first ASX dividend share to consider buying is the Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT.

As its name implies, this property company has a focus on social infrastructure properties. These are properties such as government facilities, healthcare buildings, and childcare centres.

This is a great part of the market to be in, with these properties in high demand from end users. This underpinned 100% occupancy and a weighted average lease expiry (WALE) in excess of 15 years in FY 2021. And with approximately three-quarters of its tenancies on fixed rent reviews, the company’s future rental growth looks very positive.

Goldman Sachs is a fan of the Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT and has a conviction buy rating and $4.13 price target on its shares. In respect to dividends, Goldman is forecasting dividends per share of 17.1 cents in FY 2022 and 17.5 cents in FY 2023. Based on its current share price of $3.78, implies yields of 4.5% and 4.6%, respectively.

National Australia Bank Ltd (ASX: NAB)

Another ASX dividend share that could be in the buy zone right now is NAB.

It has been tipped as a buy by the team at Bell Potter. It likes the bank due to its strong position in business and commercial banking, which gives some protection from the margin crushing competition for home loans.

The broker currently has a buy rating and $32.00 price target on the bank’s shares. Its analysts are forecasting further earnings growth from NAB in the coming years, underpinning increasing dividend payments.

For example, the broker has pencilled in dividends per share of 132.5 cents in FY 2022 and then 134.5 cents in FY 2023. Based on the current NAB share price of $28.70, this equates to fully franked yields of 4.6% and 4.7%, respectively.
