Why I’d dump buy-to-let and buy into the RBS share price today
Why I’d dump buy-to-let and buy into the RBS share price today. Fool.co.uk14 March 2019, 10:40 GMT. While buy-to-let properties are often purchased to generate a second income, FTSE 100 shares such as RBS (LSE: RBS) could offer stronger income potential. With dividend payments due to be covered 1.8 times by profit, there could be scope for continued dividend growth over the medium term. As such, the stock could become an impressive income opportunity, with its share price performance having the potential to be positively catalysed by a rising dividend. This figure has been boosted by a falling RBS share price, the bank having been relatively unpopular among investors in the last year as the prospects for the UK economy have become increasingly uncertain.
