2022 was a great year for ASX 200 dividend share investors. And here’s hoping 2023 will be equally as lucrative.
Of course, we can’t know what this year will bring until it’s over. But today, let’s talk about 3 ASX 200 dividend shares that I own which I think will bring home the bacon in 2023.
3 ASX 200 dividend shares I own for income in 2023
National Australia Bank Ltd (ASX: NAB)
I have owned NAB for a number of years now, and, while this ASX 200 bank share has had a few ups and downs over that time, no one can deny its dividend chops.
As a bank share, NAB has always had a reputation for hefty and fully franked dividend income. The pandemic put a bit of a stopper in the dividend cash flowing to investors over 2020 and (less so) 2021.
But last year saw NAB’s dividends come back with a vengeance. The bank doled out full-year dividends worth $1.51 per share. Some ASX brokers are predicting NAB will keep the pay rises coming over the next few years too. So I’m holding on to my NAB shares this year and beyond in great anticipation.
Adairs Ltd (ASX: ADH)
Adairs is another ASX 200 dividend share I’m holding in 2023. Like many ASX retailers, the Adairs share price has had a rough year or so. But this has boosted the company’s fully franked trailing dividend yield to around 6.5%.
There’s no guarantee that Adairs will pay out the same 18 cents per share this year that it did last year. But I think there’s a strong chance, considering Adairs’ quality and numbers from FY2022.
Earlier this month, ASX broker Goldman Sachs forecast Adairs’ dividends to hit a total of 20 cents per share in FY2024. So this is another dividend payer that I am very content to have in my portfolio going forward.
Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETF (ASX: VAS)
My final share up for discussion today isn’t really a share. Rather this exchange-traded fund (ETF) from Vanguard is an index fund that covers the 300 largest shares listed on the ASX. That’s a lot of dividend payers to have under one roof.
2022 was a fantastic year for investors of this ETF in terms of dividend distributions, with the fund forking out its highest annual payouts ever. The way this ETF is weighted basically ensures strong income if the big banks and miners on the ASX pay up.
I think there is a good chance we will see big dividends out of these companies over the coming year, so I’m happy to stand in line and wait to see what this ETF throws up.
