Recent falls in the market has led us to re-examine the large caps again to see if there is any value to be found, so we will use the DividendMax optimizer to sift out some suitable candidates. Our initial criteria is for a market cap over £1 billion and an annualised yield over the next 3 dividends of greater than 7%. This reveals 16 stocks which is too many to list, so, given the state of the markets we will err on the side of caution and look only at stocks with a CADI (consecutive annual divivdend increases) greater than 5. This reveals 5 stocks. SSE, Admiral, 3i Infrastructure, Carillion and Catlin. Admiral and Carillion have already been dividend of the week, so we will focus on the other three stocks. 3i Infrastructure go ex-dividend tomorrow which is why it sits high on the optimizer and given the proximity to the ex-dividend date, we will not recommend them today.Read more
