Recent falls in the market make it easier to choose a dividend of the week as yields have risen across the board. However markets have a habit of pushing beyond what you think is reasonable so once again, as has been the case with most of our recent dividends of the week, we will err on the side of caution.

The shares have fallen sharply from 847p to 712p and are not that far above their 52 week low.
