There are some ASX dividend shares that have yields of more than 5% such as footwear retailer Accent Group Ltd (ASX:AX1).
The post 3 ASX dividend shares to buy with yields above 5% appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
A number of ASX dividend shares have quite high yields, so they could be worth looking at if investors are searching for income.
Not every business has a big yield. Some ASX shares have high valuations, which pushes down the prospective yield. Other stocks have lower dividend payout ratios and that obviously doesn’t help the yield.
These three ASX shares have relatively high yields:
Nick Scali Limited (ASX: NCK)
Nick Scali is rated as a buy a few brokers, including Citi – it has a price target of just over $12 on the business. According to Citi’s prediction, the furniture retailer is going to pay a dividend of $0.80 per share for FY21, which translates to a grossed-up dividend yield of 11.4%.
The latest Nick Scali dividend – the FY21 interim one – was increased by 60% to $0.40 after a strong first half where sales increased 24.4% to $171.1 million and a doubling of underlying earnings per share (EPS) to 50 cents.
Consumer spending has been focused on their homes rather than things like holidays during this difficult COVID-19 period.
The ASX dividend share’s margins improved significantly as the company discounted less and ensured spending was disciplined. The underlying earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) margin improved by 1,270 basis points to 33.6%.
The sales order bank at the end of January was the highest of all time, suggesting further sales growth for the rest of FY21.
Accent Group Ltd (ASX: AX1)
Accent is a footwear retailer which sells a number of different brands through over 500 stores. It has over 100 stores under each brand of The Athlete’s Foot, Platypus and Skechers. It’s expecting to open at least 90 stores in FY21 across all banners.
Whilst the retailer only grew its total sales by 6.6% in the first six months of FY21, online sales soared 110% to $108.1 million and this represented 22.3% of total sales.
Margins improved considerably for the business, with underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) going up by 44% to $97.5 million. EBIT went up 47.3% to $81.8 million and net profit after tax (NPAT) grew 57.3% to $52.8 million.
It was the above numbers that gave the board the confidence to increase the interim dividend by 52.4% to 8 cents per share.
Citi rates Accent as a buy and thinks it’s going to pay a grossed-up dividend yield of 7.6%. The company continues to invest for more growth, particularly with its store rollout and online capabilities.
Charter Hall Long WALE REIT (ASX: CLW)
This is a real estate investment trust (REIT), it’s one of the larger ones on the ASX and it has one of the longest weighted average lease expiry (WALE) statistics on the ASX at 14.1 years.
It was the strong and stable tenant base that allowed Charter Hall Long WALE REIT to increase its distribution last year, unlike most other ASX REITs.
This ASX dividend share has good tenants such as various Australian government entities, Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS), Woolworths Group Ltd (ASX: WOW), Ingham’s Group Ltd (ASX: ING), Coles Group Ltd (ASX: COL), Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC) and Wesfarmers Ltd (ASX: WES).
Charter Hall Long WALE REIT’s rental income is slowly but steadily growing thanks to rental indexation that’s either fixed or linked to CPI inflation, as well as acquisitions. It had an occupancy rate of 97.5% at 31 December 2020.
In FY21 the REIT is expecting operating EPS to grow by at least 2.8% to no less than 29.1 cents per security. With a distribution payout ratio of 100%, that represents a FY21 yield of at least 6.2%. It’s currently rated as a buy by Morgan Stanley with a price target of $5.35.
