3 top British dividend stocks with yields over 5%

first_img3 top British dividend stocks with yields over 5% Paul Summers | Tuesday, 15th June, 2021 | More on: CAML IGG THRL Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Paul Summers owns shares of IG Group Holdings. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. A ‘too good to be true’ income stream often turns out to be just that. As a result, I think it pays to be cautious when hunting for high-yield British dividend stocks. Nevertheless, there are companies out there offering big payouts that should be sustainable, at least in my view.IG GroupOnline trading platform IG Group (LSE: IGG) has been a huge beneficiary of the recent volatility seen in global stock markets. Since hitting a low of 563p back in March 2020, its share price has climbed 54% as traders have sought to capitalise on the big swing in sentiment.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…After such a strong run, it’s rational to question whether this momentum will last for much longer. Even so, I believe the dividends on offer make IGG worthy of attention. The FTSE 250-listed company is likely to confirm a full-year dividend of 43.2p per share when it reports full-year results next month. At today’s share price, that gives a yield of 5% exactly. While investing in IG naturally involves more risk, that’s a world away from the paltry interest rate offered by even the best instant access Cash ISA.On top of this, strong free cash flow also gives me hope that, after a few years of being cautiously maintained, investors could see payouts increase from here.Central Asia MetalsAnother company offering a 5% yield is copper miner Central Asia Metals (LSE: CAML). Like IG Group, the mid-cap has done well for investors over the last year. In fact, anyone who picked up the stock in June 2020 would now be sitting on a gain of around 80%! Of course, investing in the commodity markets isn’t for ‘widows or orphans’. The rise and fall of the gold price last year is one example of this. With this in mind, I wouldn’t hesitate to spread my money around other British dividend stocks in a variety of sectors. Having a suitably diversified income portfolio would allow me to sleep at night.On a positive note, I see CAML’s payouts are likely to be covered more than twice by profits. This makes it very unlikely (but, naturally, not impossible) that those invested won’t receive their prized dividends. Couple this with the expected huge demand for the red metal over the next decade and I suspect CAML will be worth tucking away for a while. Target HealthcareA final British dividend stock offering a chunky income stream is Target Healthcare (LSE: THRL). This real estate investment trust (REIT) owns a growing portfolio of care UK homes. Right now, the consensus among analysts is that the company will return 6.71p per share for FY21. That becomes a yield of 5.8% at the current share price.As tempting as that dividend stream is, it’s important to remember that even the most predictable businesses can encounter crises. I probably don’t need to remind you of the awful impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Target’s industry last year.Nevertheless, I think the investment case remains solid. Back in 2018, it was estimated that the number of people over 85 in the UK requiring care would double within 20 years. This should lead to higher demand for homes like those owned by Target. Such a development might prove even more lucrative if it’s able to capture a greater share of this fragmented market in the meantime. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

The man has no previous convictions.In court last evening, Defence counsel Michael O’Higgins SC submitted that though the man accepted the jury had returned verdicts and that he must live by them, he was making no admissions to the crimes.A local garda told Pauline Walley SC, prosecuting, that the man abused his sister when he was in his mid-teens and she was aged between ten and 12 years. He committed the crimes in the family home while their parents were out working.The garda said the woman made her garda statement in 2015 after tensions between her brother and other family members went unresolved. The garda said the family found out about the allegations following a confrontation between the woman, her brother and his wife in early 2013.After this, there was a family meeting at which the man said he couldn’t recall the abuse. He denied the allegations when his wife joined the group on that occasion.Some of the family who were at this meeting, including their mother, gave evidence about this at the trial.The man’s father told the jury he met his son on a separate occasion in 2015. When the man said he had “done wrong” to his sister, his father said he took this to be an admission of sexual abuse.In her victim impact statement, which she read in court, the woman described how she had tried to resolve the issue within the family for nearly three years before going to gardaí.She said all she had wanted was an acknowledgement from her brother of his wrongdoing, but that he had chosen to put his family on the witness stand in court. The woman said had he acknowledged the abuse when it first came to light in 2013, she could have forgiven him.She said it was the “hardest” decision to go to the gardaí, but when she did she “never felt better” about herself.The woman thanked her husband, family, gardaí, the prosecution team and judge and jury for believing in her and helping her find the strength to get through the trial. She paid special tribute to the Victim Support at Court team for providing “a haven” where “nobody judges you”.Mr O’Higgins outlined to Justice Tara Burns his client’s long work history and his involvement with sports and his local community. He handed in character references describing the man as “kind and hospitable”, “industrious” and “honest”.Counsel submitted that the consequences of conviction for his client at this stage in his life was not comparable had the trial been a few years after commission. He asked the judge to bear this in mind and be as lenient as possible when imposing sentence.Ms Justice Burns remanded the man on continuing bail until May to allow him to get his affairs in order ahead of his sentence.

Black mother, son speak out after being denied service at Baltimore restaurant

first_imgABC NewsBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A Black mother and her young child claim they were denied service at a Baltimore restaurant because of the color of their skin. Marcia Grant and her 9-year-old son Dallas were turned away from being seated at Ouzo Bay, an upscale Greek restaurant in Maryland’s most populous city over the weekend. Grant used her cellphone to capture the confrontation with the restaurant’s manager on camera and later posted the footage on Facebook.An unidentified employee is seen telling Grant that her son’s outfit violates the restaurant’s dress code. The video shows Dallas wearing an Air Jordan t-shirt with athletic shorts and sneakers. Grant then turns the camera toward a white boy wearing a similar outfit who was dining outside at the restaurant. “I can’t really say why they wouldn’t let me in the restaurant originally. But once I pointed out to the guy that there was a white kid there with similar dress, I can only imagine that it was based on the fact that Dallas was Black,” Grant told ABC News on Wednesday during an exclusive interview with Good Morning America co-anchor Michael Strahan. “I kept on insisting that, you know, the white kid has the same thing that Dallas has on, why won’t you let my son in,” she continued, holding back tears. “He just would not, regardless of how hard I pushed for [Dallas].”Grant explained that it was the first time her son had such an experience. “He goes to a predominately white school … and they teach the kids that everyone is the same,” she added. “So for him to see a kid outside (at the restaurant) that looks like one of his friends at school, it was tough for him.” Still, Grant said this won’t stop her from fighting racial inequality. “He knows I’ll always fight for him,” she said of her son. “We just have to keep on pushing for social justice.”Atlas Restaurant Group, which owns Ouzo Bay, issued an apology on Monday after Grant’s video went viral, calling the incident “incredibly disturbing.” “This should have never happened, the manager seen in the video has been placed on indefinite leave,” the company said in a statement. “We are sickened by this incident. We sincerely apologize to Marcia Grant, her son and everyone impacted by this painful incident.”The company also noted that they immediately revised their policy so that children ages 12 and under, who are accompanied by an adult, aren’t subject to the dress code at any of their properties. “While dress codes across Atlas properties are the result of ongoing input from customers, in no way are they intended to be discriminatory,” the company added. A Baltimore police officer who had seen the video recognized Dallas on the street on Tuesday and stopped the boy to say he was sorry for what had happened. “He said I could come over to his house anytime for dinner,” Dallas said. “Makes me feel really good.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Press release: Welsh Secretary kicks off 2018 with EU exit talks

first_img As we move closer towards our exit from the European Union, the job of listening to, and understanding the needs of, those who live, work and do business in Wales becomes ever more important. The UK Government’s overriding goal is to make sure that the voices of sectors from all parts of the UK are listened to as we navigate an exit that works for everyone. That is why I am working with experts from across all sectors in Wales to examine the challenges posed by Brexit and to explore the great opportunities for growth in business and employment. The EU (Withdrawal) Bill is a key piece of legislation in the national interest which will convert EU law to UK law on exit day, ensuring certainty and continuity as we leave the EU.The Secretary of State for Wales established the Expert Panel to work with him to deliver a smooth and orderly exit from the EU in Wales. The fifth meeting today builds on the constructive conversations they have already had on how powers returning from the EU should be exercised after exit day. Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns will hit the ground running in 2018 when he hosts the next meeting of his EU Exit Expert Panel in Cardiff today (Thursday 11 January 2018).The panel forms part of the UK Government’s nationwide engagement with those with key interests in our exit from the EU.Mr Cairns will gather representatives from Welsh businesses, universities and the voluntary, farming, food and health sectors at Caspian Point to discuss their priorities for Brexit and to update them on negotiations and the progress of the Withdrawal Bill.Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns said.last_img read more
