There are some ASX dividend shares that a number of brokers like and have rated as ‘buys’
It can be quite hard to find good businesses that are trading at a good price. One investor might say that BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) is a good buy, whilst another might say that Woolworths Group Ltd (ASX: WOW) is the share to buy.
Brokers are constantly looking at businesses and share prices, thinking about what would be a good investment. There are various brokers out there like Bell Potter, Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX: MQG) and UBS that provide different recommendations about shares.
With that in mind, these ASX dividend shares are liked by more than one broker. Of course, this still isn’t a guarantee of success – they could all be herding together.

Super Retail is currently one of the retailers that is experiencing elevated levels of sales during these unprecedented COVID-19 times. It’s known for four businesses: Supercheap Auto, BCF, Rebel and Macpac.
