Looking to boost your income with some dividend shares? Then you might want to look at the two listed below.
Both of these dividend shares are expected to provide investors with attractive yields in the near term. Here’s what you need to know about them:
National Storage REIT (ASX: NSR)
The first dividend share to look at is leading self-storage operator, National Storage. Through its portfolio of over 200 centres, the company provides tailored storage solutions to around 100,000 residential and commercial customers.
And while this sounds like a large network, management still sees plenty of room to grow in the future. It notes that the self storage industry remains highly fragmented, giving it plenty of high-quality acquisition opportunities. This bodes well for its income and distribution growth over the long term.
Ord Minnett is a fan of National Storage. The broker currently has a buy rating and $2.60 price target on its shares.
As for dividends, its analysts are forecasting dividends per share of 10 cents in FY 2022 and FY 2023. Based on the current National Storage share price, this equates to yields of 4.5%.
Rural Funds Group (ASX: RFF)
Another ASX dividend share for income investors to look at is this agricultural focused real estate investment trust (REIT). It owns a high quality portfolio of assets across a range of agricultural industries. These include almond and macadamia orchards, premium vineyards, water entitlements, cropping and cattle farms.
Rural Funds’ properties are leased on long term contracts to major players in the industry such as Australia’s largest meat processor, JBS Australia and wine giant Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE). Together with its built in periodic rental increases, this provides Rural Funds with great visibility on its future earnings and distributions.
Speaking of which, in FY 2022, the company intends to increase its dividend by its annual target rate of 4% to 11.73 cents per share. After which, it is planning to do the same in FY 2023, lifting it to 12.2 cents per share. Based on the current Rural Funds share price, this represents yields of 4.5% and 4.65%, respectively.
