Top 40 High-Yield Blue-Chip UK Stocks 2023

A regularly updated list of high-yield blue-chip UK stocks from the FTSE 350

Most dividend investors are usually on the lookout for their next potential investment, so here you'll find a list of the top 40 high-yield blue-chip UK stocks.

This is a purely mechanical list that ranks blue-chip stocks from the FTSE 350 by a combination of their market capitalisation (bigger is better) and dividend yield (higher is better), and then selects the 40 stocks with the best combination.

The list is updated every month and a related blog is published at the beginning of each quarter.

How are these top 40 stocks ranked?

The ranking system is extremely simple.

This is a list of high-yield blue-chip (i.e. large) UK stocks, so the list is created using the following process:

  1. Start with all stocks in the FTSE 350
  2. Remove any stocks with a zero dividend yield (i.e. no dividend paid last year)
  3. Give each remaining stock a "size rank" in descending size order
  4. Give each stock a "yield rank" in descending yield order
  5. Add the size and yield ranks together
  6. Sort the list by the combined rank so the stock with the best combination of large size and high yield is at the top of the list, followed by the next best and so on
