2 great ASX dividend shares I’d buy for income in 2022

There are some really great ASX dividend shares in Australia that investors can choose to buy for income.

Some businesses have high dividend yields like Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG). Others are known for steadily growing the dividend for shareholders, such as APA Group (ASX: APA).

I think these two ASX dividend shares can offer a good mixture of both growth and yield:

Brickworks Limited (ASX: BKW)

Brickworks is a leading business in the ASX dividend share space. Lots of businesses cut their dividends during 2020 because of COVID-19 including Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX: CBA), Transurban Group (ASX: TCL) and Sydney Airport (ASX: SYD).

Whilst it may be well known for its building products such as bricks, roofing and masonry, I actually really like the other segments of the business.

Brickworks is a substantial shareholder of Washington H. Soul Pattinson and Co. Ltd (ASX: SOL), which itself is one of the leading ASX dividend shares in my opinion. Brickworks has owned WHSP shares for decades, which is steadily growing the dividend and underlying asset value for shareholders. WHSP is an investment house and it’s invested in industries like telecommunications, resources and agriculture.

The area that’s particularly exciting about Brickworks right now is its industrial property trust which it owns half of along with Goodman Group (ASX: GMG). Brickworks sells excess land into the trust. The trust then builds quality industrial properties on that land. For example, it’s building huge warehouses for Coles Group Ltd (ASX: COL) and Amazon, as well as large facilities for businesses like Woolworths. Completing all these current projects is expected to significantly increase the rent and capital value of the trust, benefiting Brickworks in the short-term and long-term.

Based on the latest Brickworks share price, it has a dividend yield of 3.6% including the franking credits.

Future Generation Investment Company Ltd (ASX: FGX)

Future Generation is a leading listed investment company (LIC) which has a record of delivering good dividends, growing dividends and outperformance.

Over the last 12 months it has paid annual dividends of $0.06 per share, which translates to a dividend yield of 6% including the franking credits. It has grown its dividend every year for the past several years.

Looking at its latest monthly performance update as at 31 December 2021, over the last three years its portfolio has delivered an average return per year of 17.5%, outperforming the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries Accumulation Index average return of 14.8% per annum over the same time period. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance though.

What’s in the ASX dividend share’s portfolio? A large number of funds run by fund managers that focus on ASX shares. Those fund managers provide their management services for free, so that Future Generation can donate 1% of its net assets each year to youth charities. Some of those fund managers includes Bennelong, Paradice, Regal, Eley Griffiths, Wilson Asset Management and L1 Capital.

The ASX dividend share is currently priced at a 7% discount to the net tangible assets (NTA), which is the underlying value.

Summary thoughts on these ASX dividend shares

I reckon that both of these companies can provide solid dividends for many years to come. Future Generation clearly has a higher yield, so it could be better for immediate income, it’s also very diversified. But I think Brickworks has good growth potential over the next few years with the property trust and ongoing growth of WHSP.

If you're anything like me, you might be thinking now is a good time to have cash 'sitting on the sidelines'.
