If you’re an income investor then you might want to read on. Listed below are two ASX dividend shares that have just been rated as buys by brokers.

Here’s what they are saying about these top ASX dividend shares:

Janus Henderson Group (ASX: JHG)

The team at Bell Potter think that this fund manager could be a dividend share to buy. It has a buy rating and $43.50 price target on the company’s shares.

While Janus Henderson has been facing a number of challenges, the broker believes that now could be the time to buy before the tide turns.

It explained:

Falls in investment markets have reduced AUM and profitability. The appearance of an activist investor has not led to corporate activity which may have disappointed some investors. The change of CEO means a new strategy and that will take time to deliver tangible results.

But now might be a good time to revisit: markets should start to recover; the company has a new direction and there is still the prospect of M&A (we feel JHG could easily be swallowed by a larger group).

As for dividends, the broker is forecasting dividends per share of 190 cents in FY 2022, 172 cents in FY 2023, and 181 cents in FY 2024. Based on the current Janus Henderson share price of $36.33, this will mean yields of 5.2%, 4.7%, and 5%, respectively.

Stockland Corporation Ltd (ASX: SGP)

Analysts at Goldman Sachs are positive on Stockland. It is a residential and land lease developer and retail, logistics and office real estate property manager. The broker has just initiated coverage on Stockland with a buy rating and $4.44 price target.

Goldman likes Stockland due to its refreshed corporate strategy and attractive valuation. The broker explained:

We believe that investor concerns regarding the housing cycle are reflected in current pricing. Furthermore, we believe SGP is progressing on its recently refreshed corporate strategy, noting that recycled proceeds from the completed sale of its low returning Retirement division provides flexibility to accelerate its commercial development pipeline and its Communities (including Land Lease) business and see the shares as attractively valued both relative to peers and historically.

SGP currently trades at a ~10% discount to last stated NTA (vs. LT average of ~1.14x), and at a FY23 FFO multiple of ~12x (vs. our REIT coverage average of 17x).

In respect to dividends, the broker is forecasting dividends per share of 26.6 cents in FY 2022, 26.7 cents in FY 2023, and 26.9 cents in FY 2024. Based on the current Stockland share price of $3.86, this will mean yields of 6.9%, 6.9%, and 7%, respectively.
