I’m searching for one of the best dividend shares to purchase for a market-beating passive earnings. And I feel I’ve discovered two which have wealthy histories of dividend development.

This isn’t all. Whereas dividends are by no means assured, these firms — revealed within the desk beneath — supply dividend yields that sail above the three.5% common for FTSE 100 shares.

 Taylor Wimpey (LSE:TW)  6.3%
 Michelmersh Brick Holdings (LSE:MBH)  4.5%

If dealer estimates show right, £20,000 invested equally throughout them may yield £1,080 in 2024. That’s based mostly on a mean 5.4% ahead yield.

I’m assured they might develop their dividends over time as nicely. Right here’s why I feel they’re price contemplating for a second earnings.

In restoration

There’s an enormous quantity of uncertainty that also surrounds the UK housing market, and with it, the earnings (and dividend) prospects of housebuilding shares.

The business’s restoration has weakened extra lately as mortgage charges have ticked up once more. However make no mistake, the outlook has improved from six months in the past. Property company Savills has even upped its dwelling worth forecasts, now anticipating common values to rise 2.5%. The enterprise had beforehand tipped a 3% fall.

So I’m contemplating growing my present stake in building big Taylor Wimpey. Sturdy buying and selling information right here of late actually factors to circumstances grow to be extra steady.

Excluding bulk gross sales, its internet non-public gross sales fee between 1 January and 21 April was 0.69 per outlet every week. This was up from 0.66 in the identical 2023 interval.

The builder’s order guide was down round £300m 12 months on 12 months within the interval. However orders nonetheless stood at £2.1bn as of April, giving it stable earnings visibility for the close to time period.

Taylor Wimpey has a powerful file of dividend development, with payouts having solely fallen through the center of the pandemic. And Metropolis analysts count on shareholder rewards to maintain rising this 12 months, leading to that vast 6%-plus dividend yield.

With a powerful stability sheet — it had £677.9m of internet money as of December — it seems in fine condition to satisfy this bullish forecast too.

One other dividend hero

Recovering properties demand additionally bodes nicely for constructing materials suppliers like Michelmersh. This former penny inventory makes 125m clay bricks and pavers annually that it sells to the development and RMI (restore, upkeep and enchancment) sectors.

Like Taylor Wimpey, it’s additionally been exhibiting inexperienced shoots of restoration of late. In mid-Could, It introduced that “order consumption momentum [is] at ranges not seen because the finish of 2022” which, in flip, is “driving improved quantity and high quality of the ahead order guide“.

This explains why Metropolis brokers suppose Michelmersh’s stable monitor file (excluding the pandemic, as proven above) will proceed.

And just like the housebuilder I’ve described, a strong monetary base offers present forecasts added power. It held internet money of £11m on the finish of 2023.

Brickmakers like this are susceptible to a sudden spike in power costs. However all issues thought of, I feel this can be a prime dividend share to think about, and particularly at right this moment’s worth. It presently trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of simply 9.7 instances.
