Team Veye | 11-Jun-2024

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway portfolio is said to have stocks with long history of paying dividends rather than stocks paying very high dividend yields.

A careful screening can bring out sustainable and consistent Dividend Paying Stocks. Some of the Possibly best dividend stocks on ASX having good growth prospects are 

Abacus Group (ASX: ABG).

Following the de-stapling implementation on 3 August 2023, Abacus Property Group (ASX: ABP) had successfully separated its Self-Storage business to create two separately listed stapled groups: Abacus Storage King (ASX: ASK) and Abacus Group (ASX: ABG).

Abacus Group's strategic focus on diversifying income streams and directing capital towards high-yielding assets has yielded positive outcomes in the first half of FY24

ABG has demonstrated year-on-year increases in Funds from Operations (FFO), indicating improving operational performance and financial stability. Additionally, the reduction in the percentage of debt to equity suggests a strengthening balance sheet and reduced financial risk. Furthermore, the increment in the interest coverage ratio reflects ABG's enhanced ability to meet its interest obligations from its operating income, signaling improved financial health and risk management. These positive trends contribute to ABG's overall financial strength and resilience.

The Commercial portfolio, consisting of 21 assets, played a pivotal role in supporting the group's financials. FFO from this segment saw a commendable 4% growth to $38.9 million. This growth was underpinned by strong occupancy and income levels, with a Commercial Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE) of 4.3 years, reflecting stability in lease terms.

Kina Securities Limited (ASX: KSL)

Kina Securities Limited with its strong foothold in Papua New Guinea (PNG), is now setting its sights on a significant geographical expansion into the Pan Pacific market, presenting lucrative opportunities for growth.

KSL, among the Top Dividend Stocks anticipates a dividend cash flow of 0.7 cents per share (cps) in September 2024, followed by 1.05 cps in March 2025, and 1.26 cps in March 2026.
