If youâre aiming to boost your income with some dividend shares, then the two listed below could be worth considering.
Both have been named as buys and tipped to pay attractive dividends in the near term. Hereâs what you need to know about these ASX 200 dividend shares:
Centuria Industrial ReitÂ (ASX: CIP)
The first ASX 200 dividend share to look at is Centuria Industrial. It is the owner of a portfolio of high-quality industrial assets situated in key metropolitan locations throughout Australia.
Demand for the companyâs properties has been very strong and has so far underpinned a portfolio occupancy rate of 99.2% and 10% rental growth in FY 2022.
The good news is that analysts are expecting this positive trend to continue thanks to elevated demand from the e-commerce sector, which is creating competition for high-quality industrial assets.
Analysts at Macquarie are positive on Centuria Industrial and have an outperform rating and $3.94 price target on its shares. Macquarie highlights that recent weakness has left the company’s shares trading at a large discount to net tangible assets.
As for dividends, the broker is forecasting a 17.3 cents per share distribution in FY 2022 and a 16.8 cents per share distribution in FY 2023. Based on the current Centuria Industrial share price of $2.89, this will mean yields of 6% and 5.8%, respectively
Macquarie Group LtdÂ (ASX: MQG)
Another ASX 200 dividend share that has been rated as a buy is investment bank Macquarie.
Macquarie recently released its full-year results for FY 2022 and revealed a 56% increase in net profit after tax of $4.7 billion. This was driven by growth across the business after a stellar 12 months.
Analysts at Morgans concede that it will be hard for Macquarie to top this in FY 2023. However, it feels investors should look beyond this and focus on the long term. As a result, it has put anÂ add rating and $215.00 price target on the bankâs shares.
Morgans explained: âWe anticipate some near-term earnings volatility over FY23 but we like MQGâs favourable longer-term growth profile and consistent history of delivering strong returns (~15% average ROE over time).â
In respect to dividends, its analysts are forecasting a $7.07 per share dividend in FY 2023 and then $7.47 per share dividend in FY 2024. Based on the current Macquarie share price of $164.00, this will mean yields of 4.3% and 4.5%, respectively.
