James Mickleboro | 17th February 2021, 7:15 a.m. | More on: BHP TCL

With interest rates unlikely to rise anytime soon, ASX dividend stocks should remain the best place to earn passive income

This mining giant could be a great option for high-income investors who don’t mind investing in the commodities sector On Tuesday, the Big Australian released its half-year results, reporting a 15% increase in sales to $ 25.6 billion and an increase in the underlying EBITDA down 21% to $ 14.7 billion

And thanks largely to sky-high copper and iron ore prices, BHP generated significant free cash flow

On the positive side, the company returned nearly all of $ 5 billion in free cash flow to shareholders through dividends BHP declared a fully prepaid interim dividend of $ 101 per share (~ A $ 130 per share), which corresponds to an increase of 55% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year

Analysts at Goldman Sachs expect similar results for the second half of the year.Based on the current price of BHP stock, they estimate it will offer investors a 5.9% dividend yield for the full year.The broker currently has a buy rating and $ 4750 price target for its broker Stocks

Another ASX dividend stock to consider is Transurban, this leading toll road operator owns a collection of major roads in Australia and North America

While times have been difficult over the past 12 months, traffic is improving, and likely will continue to do so, as vaccines are introduced

Looking ahead, given the quality of its roads, time savings and strong pricing power, Transurban seems well positioned to grow its penetration solidly over the next decade, just as it did in the US past

One broker who rates the company positively is Ord Minnett It currently has a buy recommendation and a $ 16.50 price target on its stock.The broker forecasts a 428 cents per share payout in FY 2021 and then a 56 cents per share distribution in FY 2021 2022

Based on the last Transurban share price, this means a forward yield of 32% and 425%
