Are you looking for income options for your portfolio in October? If you are, then you might want to consider the ASX shares listed below.

Here’s why they could top options for income investors:

Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX: CBA)

The first ASX dividend share to consider is this banking giant.

Although a recent pullback in the bank’s shares is disappointing for shareholders, it could be an opportunity for non-shareholders to buy a piece of Australia’s strongest bank.

Bell Potter certainly appears to believe this is the case. The broker currently has a buy rating and $118.00 price target on its shares.

The broker is also forecasting fully franked dividends per share of $4.06 in FY 2022 and $4.27 in FY 2023. Based on the current CBA share price of $100.08, this will mean yields of 4% and 4.25%, respectively.

DEXUS Property Group (ASX: DXS)

Another ASX dividend share to look at is Dexus. It is an Australian real estate company focused on owning, managing, and developing office, industrial, and retail properties.

DEXUS has just strengthened its exposure to the attractive Industrial side of the market with a $1.5 billion acquisition of industrial assets. These assets include Jandakot Airport in Perth and a logistics centre leased to Australia Post. All in all, they bring DEXUS’ industrial portfolio to $11.3 billion in value and 4.6 million square metres in size.

Morgan Stanley was pleased with the deal. In response it retained its overweight rating and $11.95 price target on the company’s shares.

As for dividends, the broker has pencilled in dividends per share of 53 cents in FY 2022 and 55.5 cents in FY 2023. Based on the current DEXUS share price of $10.45, this will mean 5.1% and 5.3% yields, respectively.
