If you’re searching for some dividend shares to buy, then you may want to look at the two listed below.

Both these dividend shares have recently been rated as buys by experts and tipped to provide attractive dividend yields. Here’s what you need to know about them:

Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT (ASX: CQE)

The first ASX dividend share to look at is the Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT.

It is a real estate investment trust with a focus on social infrastructure properties such as bus depots, police and justice services facilities, and childcare centres. Demand has been very strong for these properties with end users. So much so, at the last count the company had a 100% occupancy rate and a weighted average lease expiry of 14.6 years.

Goldman Sachs has been pleased with the company’s performance and currently has a conviction buy rating and $4.24 price target on its shares

The broker is also expecting some generous dividends in the coming years. It is forecasting dividends per share of 17.2 cents in FY 2022 and 18.3 cents in FY 2023. Based on its current share price of $3.59, this implies yields of 4.8% and 5.1%, respectively.

Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX: MQG)

Another ASX dividend share that has been rated as a buy is this investment bank.

Macquarie has been a very strong performer again this year thanks to growth across the business. It recently released its full-year results for FY 2022 and revealed a 56% increase in net profit after tax of $4.7 billion.

This went down well with the team at Morgans. And while the broker suspects that it will be hard to top this in FY 2023, it remains very positive on the long term due to the company’s exposure to structural growth markets. As a result, it has put an add rating and $215.00 price target on the bank’s shares.

In respect to dividends, its analysts are forecasting a $7.07 per share dividend in FY 2023 and then $7.47 per share dividend in FY 2024. Based on the current Macquarie share price of $167.99, this will mean yields of 4.2% and 4.45%, respectively.
