Article preview: For all investors, the dividend income paid from a portfolio often forms a substantial part of the total return. UK stocks have historically been known for their strong dividend performance, and this year looks set to continue that trend. Dividends from UK companies rose by 14.5% in the second quarter of 2019, reaching a new all-time high of £37.8bn. This figure beats the previous record, which was set two years ago, by more than £4bn.
