Bellway, Jupiter and RPS are Liberum picks as income stocks come back into fashion


Income is in favour, according to broker Liberum, which delivered its monthly assessment of the small and mid-cap sector.

Analyst Sebastian Jory revealed out that high yielding stocks have outperformed ‘lower yielders’ by 20% over the last year.

He also pointed out the FTSE 250 dividend yield is at a record high. “Alongside M&A, dividend upgrades are an important source of upside at UK small and mid-caps,” added Jory. 

He screened for stocks not only paying well, but have the scope to grow the dividend further and came up with three key picks – the fund manager Jupiter (LON:JUP), the consultant RPS (LON:RPS) and builder Bellway (LON:BWY).

He said Jupiter is yielding 6.5% a year and yet is growing at a compound annual rate of 13%, while RPS is expanding at a compound 14% and yields 3.5%.

Bellway, meanwhile, has a dividend yield of 3.3% and growing at a compound annual rate of 22%.
