While a dividend yield of 1.5% is nothing special, the trailing P/E ratio is 14 times earnings, and City analysts reckon the London firm will produce 41.1% earnings growth this year alone.NFC has reported it again expects double-digit profit growth ahead of full-year results out in April 2020, with the added bonus of double-digit revenue growth as well.And I believe the market has overreacted to Dyson’s statement that profits would be slightly below expectations in those upcoming results.

The Bitcoin price is ticking up, but I would put my capital into high-growth, high-profit businesses instead. I do own a significant chunk of the world’s largest cryptocurrency but I recognise it will be too speculative for most private investors.My fundamental research into the FTSE of late points to two good opportunities in particular.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…Wizz AirFlight carriers are in the news again because of fears over the spread of coronavirus: on Wednesday 29 January British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group said it was suspending all flights to China indefinitely.Switzerland’s Wizz Air (LSE:WIZZ) is Europe-focused. It does take passengers as far as Dubai and Kazakhstan but has no exposure to East Asia at the moment. But short-term issues aren’t the point here as long-term potential is what counts.While the low-cost carrier may not have the visibility of a FTSE 100 travel operator like Easyjet, it has a market cap of over £4bn, and its shares are available for a low P/E of 11.9, which makes it pretty cheap for the profits it produces.Airlines aren’t usually on my radar because they’re costly to operate, require a lot of inventory and are fragile in the face of unseen geopolitical events. But I’m ready to make an exception for Wizz Air.It lifted profit guidance on 29 January after strong third-quarter results showed revenues of €637.3m, 24.6% higher than in the same period last year. Passenger numbers are up 23.2% to hit the magic 10 million mark and I like the way that chief executive József Váradi has overseen significant profit reinvestment so that WIZZ will grow even faster in Q4.A chart of the share price also shows significant 124% growth in the last three years, but I think there’s much further it could go.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Next 15 CommunicationsThe main reason I’m looking for a good buy price for Next 15 Communications (LSE:NFC) is that 28-year veteran chief executive Tim Dyson keeps making sound decisions for growth.The Bermondsey-based digital marketing group has evolved away from solely running PR campaigns for major multinationals (although this year it has continued to pick up big clients like Microsoft, Intel and recruiting giant Reed) to acquire debt-free, profitable digital marketing businesses. Then it allows those firms in its stable to carry on doing what they do best.October 2019’s $27.7m cash and shares buyout of global health comms agency Health Unlimited gives NFC the opportunity to “greatly expand our international footprint in the healthcare sector,” Dyson said.The AIM market can unduly promote companies with patchy financial histories, but I don’t think that’s the case with NFC. It has been operating since 1981 and has grown to a market cap of £441m, adding 252% to its share price in the past five years. Over that time, Dyson has slashed his company’s debt-to-equity ratio from 39% to 22%. See all posts by Tom Rodgers

My top FTSE 100 dividend stocks to buy now I think I’m spoilt for choice with stocks to buy right now. I’m seeing some attractive opportunities among firms of all shapes and sizes. Top of my list of FTSE 100 dividend-payers are two that offer me bumper prospective yields of 6.5% and 7.6%.Here’s what I like about their businesses and some risks I need to be aware of.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…My stocks to buy #1Polymetal International (LSE: POLY) is the biggest gold and silver miner listed on the London Stock Exchange. It’s a top-10 global gold producer and top-five global silver producer, with assets in Russia and Kazakhstan.I like that its assets are of high quality and that it’s an efficient, low-cost producer. This means it can remain profitable when metals prices are at levels that turn higher-cost producers into loss-making enterprises.I also like that it has nine producing mines. This is because operational setbacks can be a hazard for miners. In Polymetal’s case, its broad portfolio of mines mitigates the risk of an operational issue at any one.Attractive dividend policyAnother reason Polymetal is one of my top stocks to buy now is the board’s commitment to rewarding shareholders with generous dividends. Its policy can see shareholders receive an annual payout of up to 100% of free cash flow.For 2020, this produced dividends totalling $1.29 per share (94.3p at the prevailing exchange rates). At the current share price of 1,640pp, the trailing yield is 5.75%. For 2021, City analysts have pencilled in an increase in the dividend to $1.51 (107p at current exchange rates). This would give me a prospective yield of 6.5%.I’d have to accept that my sterling dividend is susceptible to movements in the exchange rate. But like the other risks I’ve mentioned, I’m comfortable with this.My stocks to buy #2British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) is the world’s most international tobacco group. It operates in more countries than any of its rivals. Increasing regulation is one of the big challenges facing tobacco companies. I like that BAT’s geographical diversification mitigates this risk, to some degree.I also like that the company’s investing heavily in reduced-risk categories. It has ambitious revenue targets for new categories like vapour and tobacco-heating products. I think its targets are credible, but I have to accept the risk it could fall short. This would likely have an adverse impact on its share price and potentially its dividend.Current dividend policyAs with Polymetal, I’m attracted by BAT’s dividend policy. The board is committed to distributing 65% of annual earnings to shareholders. And the current yield helps make this one of my top stocks to buy right now.Last year, the company paid dividends totalling 215.6p per share. With the shares at 2,810pp, as I’m writing, the trailing yield is 7.7%. The prospect yield is also at this level because City analysts see only a small increase in the payout to 217p this year. Certainly, I need to be mindful of the risks I’ve mentioned but I think the yield right now is an ample reward. G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

“COPY” United States “COPY” CopyZaha Hadid has unveiled her first New York City commission: an 11-story, luxury apartment block planned alongside the second section of the High Line in Chelsea at 520 West 28th Street. Spearheaded by New York developer Related Companies, the “sculpted” glass and steel residential development hopes to lure buyers with its expansive, double-height entrance lobby, communal garden, generous terraces, private courtyards, and, of course, exclusive views of New York’s most beloved attraction: the High Line. “Our design is an integration of volumes that flow into each other and, following a coherent formal language, create the sensibility of the building’s overall ensemble,” explained Hadid. “With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighborhood.”The mid-rise development will feature approximately 37 residences of up to 5,500 square feet, focusing on gracious layouts with 11-foot ceilings, thoughtful technological integration and state-of-the-art finishes and features. Designed with multiple elevator cores, a majority of the residences will have a private vestibule and entrance that adds to the intimacy of the building.

Donegal County Council says it is monitoring Coronavirus outbreak Google+ By News Highland – March 11, 2020 Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Facebook Pinterest Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens further Facebook WhatsApp Donegal County Council continues to keep up to date on the state of the COVID-19 situation as it affects the County.The Council has a role as a Local Authority for its citizens, communities and businesses. We are also a major employer with over one thousand staff in addition to a retained Fire Service of around one hundred and sixty. We are also an organisation that spends close to €250 million each year, much of which is local, that many local businesses and families depend on. It is against this background and taking into consideration the needs of employees, the community and businesses that the Council has prepared its Business Continuity Plan. That plan is being kept under review and will be amended as necessary as the COVID-19 situation evolves.The Council is not expert in this field and is relying on the best information being made available through the Medical Experts. We regularly review and assess the updates being made and make judgements and decisions based on the best advice available.The Council provide many services to the County and its citizens such as social housing, road services, fire and emergency services, planning, water services (as an agent to Irish Water), economic development and community/social services among others. These services are necessary for the running of the County and routinely bring the Council into contact with many people and workplaces. The Council is in a position currently to maintain a full service across all its delivery units. All our expenditure plans are continuing and our workforce and those companies we have employed for supplies and services continue as planned. Our Business Continuity Plan has considered, in a broad way, how certain services could be curtailed in the event of an escalation of a pandemic while at the same time maintaining the vital essential services that must be provided to the citizens. Any decision, that might become necessary, to activate a curtailment of service would be taken in a considered way and making use of the best advice that is available nationally.Naturally at this time, the Council and our citizens are both concerned and at a state of heightened awareness of the unknown level the outbreak will reach over the coming period of time before it abates. The Council is itself, and encourages its citizens to take as many of the identified and fundamental precautions and measures as possible such as:· Regular and longer than usual hand washing;· Avoid contacting face with hands;· Avoid hand shaking;· Sneeze into your elbow;· Limit unnecessary gatherings;· Use phone, computer system or the like to contact customers as much as possible;· Self declare and self isolate if you have the symptoms, or have been to an affected Country or region or have come into contact with someone who has the virus;· Think about the particular needs of older/vulnerable/isolated people and endeavour to provide help and assistance where requiredThe Council is in contact with our government departments and national bodies. It is anticipated that guidance in relation to the Council’s statutory roles and functions might be required to accommodate the needs in an environment where the outbreak rises to a certain stage.The Council recognises that our business community could be facing a challenging period ahead. Our County and economy relies on a significant boost at this time of year and throughout the summer from visitors and tourism. It is not known at this time how that will turn out. The Council has a history of working with its commercial businesses in a way that helps them overcome periods of difficulty and it will do so again if that need arises. In that regard, the Council understands that it is important for the Council to maintain it’s spend in the community throughout this period and the Council will make every effort to do that.The Council will be keeping up to date on the emerging situation on COVID-19 and will make every effort to be as helpful as possible as we all work through what is likely to be a challenging period. It is important for every citizen to also take the individual steps that they too can take to help work through and succeed in overcoming this period.
