While rates are rising, they’re still a long way from normal levels. In light of this, if you’re looking to boost your income portfolio with some new dividend shares, then the two listed below could be worth considering.
Here’s why analysts are positive on these dividend shares right now:
Dexus Industria REIT (ASX: DXI)
The first ASX dividend share that could be in the buy zone is Dexus Industria, which was formerly known as APN Industria.
It is real estate investment trust (REIT) which owns interests in office and industrial properties that provide functional and affordable workspaces. The fund’s portfolio is currently valued at ~$1.8 billion and is located across major Australian cities.
Management notes that it has been constructed to provide investors sustainable income and capital growth prospects for security holders over the long term.
Morgans appears confident the company will deliver on its targets and has an add rating and $3.65 price target on its shares. Its analysts are also forecasting attractive dividends per share of 17.3 cents in FY 2022 and 17.6 cents in FY 2023. Based on the current Dexus Industria share price of $2.79, this will mean yields of 6.2% and 6.3%, respectively.
HomeCo Daily Needs REIT (ASX: HDN)
Another ASX dividend share that could be a top option for income investors is the HomeCo Daily Needs REIT.
It is another REIT, but with a focus on convenience-based assets. This includes neighbourhood retail and large format retail (retail parks).
Goldman Sachs is a very big fan of the company and believes it is well placed for growth thanks to the “shift to omni channel retailing.” In light of this, it feels its shares are undervalued at the current level and has put a buy rating and $1.70 price target on the company’s shares.
As for dividends, Goldman is forecasting dividends per share of 8 cents in FY 2022 and then 9 cents in FY 2023. Based on the current HomeCo Daily Needs share price of $1.25, this will mean yields of 6.4% and 7.2%, respectively.
