The first ASX dividend share to look at is the Charter Hall Long Wale REIT.

In respect to dividends, the broker is forecasting dividends per share of 30.8 cents in FY 2022 and 30.9 cents in FY 2023. Based on the current Charter Hall Long Wale REIT share price of $4.84, this will mean yields of ~6.3%.

Wesfarmers Ltd (ASX: WES)

Another ASX dividend share that could be in the buy zone is Wesfarmers.

It is the conglomerate behind businesses including Bunnings, Catch, Covalent Lithium, Kmart, Officeworks, and Priceline.

As for dividends, the broker is forecasting fully franked dividends per share of $1.62 in FY 2022 and $1.81 in FY 2023. Based on the current Wesfarmers share price of $49.21, this will mean yields of 3.3% and 3.7%, respectively.
