Now’s a good time to go looking for FTSE 100 shares, for my part. Many top-quality shares carry dividend yields that would assist supercharge my passive earnings.

Take the 2 shares beneath. As we are able to see, their yields for the subsequent two years dash previous the three.7% common for Footsie shares.

FTSE 100 inventory 2024 dividend yield 2025 dividend yield
 Authorized & Basic Group (LSE:LGEN) 8.8% 9.3%
 Taylor Wimpey (LSE:TW.) 6.7%  6.9%

However this isn’t all. Authorized & Basic’s latest share value weak spot additionally means it appears grime low cost from an earnings perspective.

It trades on a price-to-earnings development (PEG) ratio of 0.8 (a reminder that any studying beneath 1 signifies {that a} share is undervalued).

A £15,000 lump sum unfold throughout these two Footsie shares might make me £1,215 in passive earnings subsequent yr. Right here’s why I’m pondering of shopping for them for my portfolio at the moment.

A dividend hero

Its various and dependable earnings streams imply Authorized & Basic has raised annual dividends for 14 of the previous 15 years. The premiums it receives on its insurance coverage merchandise, the charges it fees at its funding arm, and the sale of annuities all enable it to pay a rising dividend nearly yearly.

I definitely can’t see this proud document coming to an finish. And particularly following its latest programme to spice up the amount of money on its books. Its Solvency II capital ratio stood at a mighty 224% as of December.

If rumours are right, Authorized & Basic may be taking steps to spice up its steadiness sheet even additional. Sky Information has reported it has engaged banking group Rothschild to promote its Cala Houses unit in a possible £750m deal.

Revenue development might disappoint within the close to time period if the financial local weather stays robust. However over the lengthy haul I count on the underside line to swell, as demographic modifications drive demand for its retirement and different merchandise.

On the rebound

I already personal Authorized & Basic shares. And I even have a stake in housebuilding large Taylor Wimpey.

As situations within the UK housing market brighten, I’m contemplating including to my place. The builder’s assertion in February that it’s witnessing “encouraging indicators of enchancment” — with a subsequent rise in gross sales and drop in cancellations — provides to the sense that the sector’s turning the nook.

Information that home costs have risen 1.5% in March provides additional proof to indicators of encouraging momentum. This was the most important bounce for 10 months, Rightmove stated, and above the historic March common of 1%.

Demand for new-build properties might splutter once more if mortgage charges flip once more. However with Financial institution of England cuts seemingly in a while in 2024, situations might reman beneficial for homebuyers and, by extension, the likes of Taylor Wimpey.
