Best Dividend Stocks To Buy Now
The hardest part when it comes to dividend investing is to uncover shares that have the strongest most predictable revenue lines and are market leaders in their field.
Without a doubt, some of these best dividend-paying stocks will be familiar names to you and form the bedrock of many Australian stock portfolios.
Our Research team has been hard at work finding the best dividend stocks to buy now in Australia for dividend investing.
I’ve outlined 5 stocks that we feel represent some of the best dividend stocks in the Australian market.
Pioneer Credit (ASX PNC)
Pioneer Credit Limited (ASX PNC) is a financial services provider, specialising in acquiring and servicing retail debt portfolios.
Overall, ASX PNC shares have the potential to surge after three years of strong performance if they continue to grow at the rate they are now.
Leading in corporate governance practices, high EPS growth and outperformance relative to the industry, we expect ASX PNC shares to have a bright future ahead.
PNC pays a strong dividend yield of 9.35% which grew 50% last year and has the potential for not just dividend growth, but capital gains too.
This makes Pioneer Credit one of the best dividend shares as their dividend yield grows with their business.
There are also talks of a takeover for PNC so we have seen some strong positive momentum for the stock after dropping to a low of $1.86 and bouncing back to $2.73.
Commonwealth Bank (ASX CBA)
Yes, I know this one is obvious – but it is definitely one of the best, most stable blue chips you can buy for income.
Since coming out of the Royal Commission relatively unscathed, the CBA share price has rebounded and even reached above $80 a share.
Even at this price level, CBA is yielding a massive 7.7% grossed up.
CSR Limited (ASX CSR)
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.
CSR is currently paying about 11.27% in dividend yield and has a one-year dividend growth of 13.15% and is a great Australian dividend stock.
Medibank Private (ASX MPL)
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.
Medibank shares have had a good dividend history and recently increased its interim dividend by 4.8% to 5.5cents.
We consider Medibank to be a reliable blue-chip stock for dividend investing with a strong dividend yield of about 7%.
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.
Wesfarmers currently pays about 13.55% in dividend yield. Dividend growth was previously 12.63% and after the spin-off of Coles, is now 43.50%.
We can expect dividends to grow even stronger from here on out and this stock is considered to be one of the best dividend shares.
