JB Hi-fi Ltd (ASX: JBH) is one of the 2 ASX dividend shares on offer today with a fully franked yield above 4%. Too good to miss?
The post 2 ASX dividend shares with fully franked yields over 4% appeared first on Motley Fool Australia. –
Before 2020, there was nothing too extraordinary about an ASX dividend share offering a yield of 4% or higher. You could easily go to the big four ASX banks and bag yourself a 5% to 6% yield for a start. And plenty of other dividend shares offered yields in this ballpark as well.
Yet 2020 has changed that paradigm, perhaps irrevocably. The big four are now offering yields ranging from not-a whole-lot to nothing. Scores of other former dividend heavyweights have slashed and cancelled dividends in 2020 so far. These include Transurban Group (ASX: TCL), Qantas Airways Limited (ASX: QAN) and Ramsay Health Care Limited (ASX: RHC), among others.
So in September 2020, a solid 4% yielder is starting to look pretty dang good. Especially if you consider that interest rates remain at virtually zero. So here are 2 ASX shares offering just that!
2 ASX shares with yields over 4%
1) JB Hi-Fi Ltd (ASX: JBH)
JB Hi-Fi has been one of the surprise performers of 2020. Along with many other ASX retail shares, JB was heavily sold off in the March market crash. But the company’s astonishing FY2020 earnings report, in which JB reported a 33% surge in profits, quickly made investors reassess this case. Since 23 March, The JB Hi-Fi share price is up nearly 100%.
But JB is also an underappreciated dividend share as well, in my view. Its FY20 earnings report also included a 76% rise in the company’s final dividend over FY19’s payout. JB now offers a trailing yield of $1.89, which translates into a 4.02% yield today. If we include JB’s full franking, this grosses-up to 5.74%. Not a bad deal in the current environment!
2) WAM Global Ltd (ASX: WGB)
WAM Global is one of my favourite ASX dividend growth shares. This listed investment company (LIC) only started life in 2018. But since then, it has already hit the ground running with its dividends, which have rapidly increased from 2 to 3 to 4 cents per share over the past two years. If we take the last two payouts of 4 and 3 cents per share respectively, we arrive at a trailing dividend yield of 3.33%. WAM Global also provides full franking, so including that the company offers a grossed-up yield of 4.76%.
This LIC invests in a portfolio of global shares. It tends to focus on what it perceives as ‘undervalued growth shares’. As of 31 August, some of the holdings in its portfolio include Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA).
If WAM Global can continue to grow its dividend at anywhere near the rate it has managed over the past two years, I think it will be a dividend powerhouse in no time at all. And given the company has a profit reserve of 32.9 cents per share (as of 31 August), I’m confident it will do so.
