Sunday share tips: Tate & Lyle, Direct Line and Bloomsbury Publishing

Wed, 24th May - * Insurer Direct Line's shares are worth holding, according to Midas in the Mail on Sunday. The insurer is part of a new tendency of companies to pay special dividends on top of their two payments per year. Directors have proposed special dividends every year and are expected to pay two for 2015, taking the company's yield to a jaw-dropping 13.6%. A return of 27p a share is imminent after the sale of its international business last year, with analysts forecasting an ordinary annual dividend of 13p and another special dividend for 2015 of about 5p. Although premiums are thought to be increasing, a good chunk of profits come from instalment income, where customers pay higher monthly premiums. These recently came under scrutiny from the Financial Conduct Authority and, if the regulator takes action or customers start altering their behaviour, that could affect Direct Line's profits and dividends.
