Some caution is needed for the dividend yields of UK companies as their
dividend structures are very different from the US and most US sites seem
to assume the rest of the world's dividends follow US rules. It is quite
possible to obtain a decent estimate of the yield using Yahoo finance by
ignoring their stated dividend yield on the summary page and just looking
up the dividends in the historical prices page (which are largely accurate
in my experience). This gives a yield of 5.5% for NGG and 5% for GSK.
