Kevin Godbold | Wednesday, 14th October, 2020 | More on: RQIH Forget Lloyds and Barclays! I’d buy this stock for its top dividend yield above 6% I’m wary of banks on the London stock market such as Lloyds and Barclays, and we can’t describe them as companies paying top dividend yields.Indeed, the London-listed banks have patchy records when it comes to earnings and shareholder dividends. Their businesses look depressed right now along with their share prices, but I’m not keen to buy their shares.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…Why I’d buy this stock for its top dividend yieldThe banks are cyclical through and through. And trading tends to suffer or prosper according to the ups and downs of the general economy. We could buy bank stocks to try to ride the next up-leg of a cyclical recovery. But I reckon that strategy is risky. Instead, I’d much rather invest in a firm operating in the wider financial sector such as Randall & Quilter (LSE: RQIH).The great thing about RQIH is the business is trading strongly right now. And the directors see opportunities for growth in the current market environment. In today’s half-year results report, they underlined their confidence in the outlook by maintaining the interim dividend. And City analysts following the firm expect a modest single-digit percentage advance in the shareholder payment next year.With the share price near 153p, the forward-looking dividend yield for 2021 is almost 6.7%. I reckon that’s useful income to collect while the business realises its growth ambitions. Indeed, the prospect of capital growth from a rising share price in the coming years is a real possibility.RQIH describes itself as “a profitable and progressive dividend-paying non-life insurance group.” Operations involve investing in and managing insurance assets. The company also acts as “a conduit” for capital providers, such as reinsurers, niche underwriting businesses, and managing general agents (MGAs).A dip in earnings set to recoverToday’s report reveals to us that in the six-month period to 30 June, the company held almost 57% of its gross assets in North America, around 22% in the UK and 21% in Europe. And those assets delivered a pre-tax operating profit in the period up 30% year on year. Although the profit-before-tax figure declined substantially.The directors explained in the report the results were affected by Covid-19 due to a reduction in total investment returns, delays in on-boarding new programme management business and by a change in the mix of Legacy transactions. However, the underlying business and financial trends were good in the period and the directors expect the full-year trading outcome to be “in line with market expectations.” According to City analysts, that means we’ll likely see a surge in profits putting the earnings multiple just below 11 for 2020. Looking ahead, the directors think RQIH is “well-positioned to capitalise on favourable market conditions.”I reckon the firm will continue its record of organic and acquisitive growth in the years ahead. Meanwhile, the share price has dipped a bit today, perhaps because of the fall in the net profit figure.But the dip in earnings looks temporary, and we could be seeing a decent opportunity to buy better value with the shares today. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

RiverNorthPhotography/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Pharmacy retail giant Rite Aid has apologized to two undocumented immigrants who the company said were “mistakenly” denied COVID-19 vaccinations at Southern California stores.Both women, who were turned away from getting the vaccine in separate incidents this month, have been invited back by Rite Aid to receive their vaccinations, a spokesperson for the pharmacy chain told ABC News on Sunday.Rite Aid spokesperson Christopher Savarese described both cases as “isolated” incidents resulting from workers at the stores not following established protocols for vaccine eligibility. The employees will be re-educated on the protocols to make sure everyone is on the same page, he said.Savarese said that of the hundreds of thousands of vaccines Rite Aid has administered, these are the only two complaints the chain is aware of.In a statement later sent to ABC News, Rite Aid officials said, “In such an unprecedented rollout, there are going to be mistakes and there will be always areas for providers to improve — we’re seeking out those opportunities every day.”Savarese added, “This is very important to us that this is corrected. Both of the situations that we’re talking about have been resolved, and both of those people will be getting their vaccine at Rite Aid.”Rite Aid issued the apologies after a son of one of the women and the employer of the other woman, who is a babysitter, spoke out to ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV.Sebastian Araujo, a student at UCLA who plans to become an immigration lawyer, said his mother was turned away from a Rite Aid in Mission Hills, California, after she was asked to show a Social Security card and could only produce her foreign consular identification.Araujo told KABC that he spoke out on his mother’s behalf with the goal of making sure all undocumented immigrants in the United States are allowed to get the vaccine when they are eligible under state, local and federal guidelines.“I know that my mom is not the only one,” Araujo said.Kevin Rager of Orange County told KABC that his children’s babysitter, an undocumented immigrant, was reduced to tears when she was rejected at a Rite Aid store twice on the same day.Rager said his employee even provided Rite Aid with an out-of-state identification and a letter he wrote verifying she watches his children. But the pharmacist at a Rite Aid in Laguna Niguel, according to Rager, insisted on seeing the woman’s Social Security card and inaccurately told her that vaccine priority goes to U.S. citizens.“These questions shouldn’t be asked of any individual, and our entire country needs to get vaccinated. So, I don’t see why somebody should be denied when they actually want to get a vaccine,” Rager said.Rep. Tony Cárdenas, who represents Los Angeles, said the legal immigration status of a person is not supposed to interfere with them getting vaccinated.“That is not a requirement whatsoever at the federal, state or local level, and that organization (Rite Aid) has been told very clearly that that was wrong, and they immediately apologized for doing so, but it left the woman very distraught,” Cárdenas told KABC of Rager’s employee.On Feb. 1, the federal Department of Homeland Security issued a statement that the agency and its “federal government partners fully support equal access to the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine distribution sites for undocumented immigrants.”“It is a moral and public health imperative to ensure that all individuals residing in the United States have access to the vaccine. DHS encourages all individuals, regardless of immigration status, to receive the COVID-19 vaccine once eligible under local distribution guidelines,” the DHS statement reads.However, the confusion over whether undocumented immigrants qualify to receive vaccine has continued to occur not only in Southern California, but elsewhere in the country. The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley issued an apology to at least 14 people who were rejected on Feb. 20 at its vaccination site because they could not provide proof of U.S. residency.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Dear Friends,While Cape May County’s COVID positivity rate remains the lowest in the state, the number of cases continues to trend upward as we head toward the holidays and what would normally be lots of gatherings among family, friends and colleagues.Local hospital officials reported in a call this week that the number of hospitalized COVID patients is holding steady at a manageable level, and they also said that some frontline health care workers could be vaccinated as soon as this month.But we still have a long way to go before a vaccine is widely available to everybody.Better days are in sight, but until then we all must continue to wear masks, avoid indoor gatherings, wash hands and do whatever we can to limit the spread of the virus – for the sake of the entire community.I know we’re all growing tired of this, and the isolation is taking a toll on mental health for many.My city team is working with local professionals to gather information on resources for anybody who may need help during these trying times. We will make these resources available to the public through the city website and other avenues.We are also working with the school district as we navigate these uncharted waters. It has been an extremely difficult year for students, parents and teachers alike, but we are all in this together.I have offered whatever assistance the city can provide, and the city and district are working together to communicate with the public.I want to recognize and appreciate the efforts of the school administration and staff in continuing their educational mission during this exceptional time.I also want to acknowledge the sacrifices of the school families in town.I hope you all have a great weekend among close family and stay well.Warm regards,Mayor Jay A.
