Dividend payers have dominated the most popular securities chart so far this year – with the FTSE 100’s biggest paying income stock Vodafone coming in third place.

Investors in UK-listed companies will be rewarded with a £101.1 billion pay-out in 2014, as dividends are predicted to jump 27%. Buoyed by a special £16.6 billion dividend from Vodafone companies will pay out a record amount of cash, smashing the previous record set in 2012 of £80.6 billion.

 Supermarket shares Tesco which pays a dividend of 5% and Morrisons which is yielding 5.9% also feature in the top 10. These two stocks are also considered undervalued by Morningstar analysts.
