I’ve outlined 5 stocks that we feel represent some of the best dividend stocks in the Australian market.
FlexiGroup (ASX FXL)
FlexiGroup (ASX FXL) is a financial services company based in Australia.
Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) shares have been running hot right now, with APT both going gangbusters – fully recovering from the correction in early 2020.
With both those stocks running so hard, FXL has been left in the dust.
However, FXL is the only company BNPL who is profitable with a solid and growing business that we think has been overlooked.
They are also transforming their business and online sales volumes have grown strongly. This is creating capital growth as they ramp up their BNPL business.
In addition, FXL pays a huge grossed-up dividend yield of 9.82% – levels that generally only banks can reach.
Webjet (ASX WEB)
Webjet is a market-leading digital travel business that is rapidly expanding from the B2C to the B2B market.
With recent acquisitions, Webjet’s B2B business is now the No.2 global player in the market.
Webjet has experienced strong year on year growth and continues to grow its dividend payout.
We think Webjet has a strong, globally diversified business with a lot of future upside and earning potential.

CSR is an Australian listed company that manufactures and sells building products, aluminium, and house design solutions.
CSR has seen a strong year on year EPS growth with a lower PE ratio than its peers. CSR has a built their business towards sustainability which is in line with new homeowner demand and a good stock to be in for dividend investing.

Medibank Private (ASX MPL) is an Australian-based private health insurance provider. Medibank is in the business of underwriting and distribution of private health insurance policies through the Medibank and ahm brands.
Since this is such a stable industry, Medibank can be considered one of the most stable dividend shares with predictable revenue.
Wesfarmers (ASX WES)
Wesfarmers is one of the largest companies in Australia and owns the very successful Bunnings brand.
Wesfarmers has run into some trouble recently with a failed Bunnings UK business and a resurgent Woolworths (ASX WOW) which has put pressure on their supermarket business.
However, they have now cut the Bunnings UK business and just divested their mature Coles business.
This means there is a lot of flexibility ahead for Wesfarmers to perform even better.
