Roland Head looks at the latest numbers from Legal & General Group plc (LON:LGEN) and highlights a potential alternative. : Today I’m looking at two big-cap stocks from the financial sector, both of which boast forecast dividend yields of about 6% at the moment. First up is FTSE 100 stalwart Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN). This stock is a popular choice with income investors and pension funds. So for many shareholders, today’s news from the firm may be bittersweet. The good news is the company will book an exceptional profit of £300m-£400m this year.
