NZX's Top 10 Dividend Returns

It is hard to get good returns from term investments and the property market at the moment with around a 3.5% real return from the former and similarly low results from investment properties, if you bought a house over the last 10 years.

The New Zealand Stockmarket has some good returns on selected stocks many are getting close to a 10% gross return. With this in mind lets take a look at the 10 best dividend players listed on the NZX.

Figures are gleaned from the NZX website and are based on figures calculated from market prices as of close of market on 9 June 2010. The gross returns are based on past profit performance.


The Top Ten

Telecom NZ Ltd [TEL.NZ] - 13.26%

Steel & Tube Holdings [STU.NZ] - 11.92%

Kiwi Income Property Ltd [KIP.NZ] - 9.92%

Vector Ltd [VCT.NZ] - 9.35%

Hallenstein Glasson Holdings [HLG.NZ] - 9.22%

Telstra Corp [TLS.NZ] - 9.08%

Freightways Ltd [FRE.NZ] - 8.41%

Air New Zealand [AIR.NZ] - 8.28%

Goodman Fielder Ltd [GFF.NZ] - 7.82%

Restaurant Brands Ltd [RBD.NZ] - 7.76%


While not guaranteed returns - the likes of TEL, TLS, KIP & AIR dividends will be under future pressure - even the minimum return from RBDs 7.76% is nearly twice the return of term investments and investment property.

Good to see I own 5 out of the top 10.

Disclosure I own FRE, GFF, HLG, KIP, STU in the Share Investor Portfolio
