2 top dividend stocks that pay you more than Lloyds Banking Group does

2 top dividend stocks that pay you more than Lloyds Banking Group does. I may remain über-bearish on Lloyds Banking Group, but I can still understand why it’s tempting for many investors. A forward P/E ratio below the bargain-basement threshold of 10 times and a staggering prospective dividend yield north of 6%? For glass-half-full individuals who are not so fearful over the consequences of Brexit in the near term and beyond, there’s plenty to get your teeth into. I am concerned about the fate of Lloyds and UK GDP data released today showed why why, the Office for National Statistics reporting a 1.4% rise in economic output in 2018 — the worst result for six years — and output in December actually falling 0.4%. For a bank whose bottom line is chiefly reliant upon a strong British economy, signs of such negative momentum in the run-up to Brexit makes for yet more chilling reading.
