CommSec’s chief economist Craig James is cautious about the outlook for the Australian sharemarket in the wake of the August reporting season. He notes that the recent strong performance of many listed companies has already been priced into sharemarket valuations. Capital management was a key feature of the reporting season, with listed companies announcing some $20bn worth of share buybacks, while investors will receive more than $34bn worth of dividend payments. Peter Warnes of Morningstar says investors should expect lower dividend payouts in 2022.
