Is this FTSE stock an opportunity or a red herring during the market crash?

first_img The name that resonates with ten pin bowling for most people is Hollywood Bowl (LSE:BOWL). The coronavirus has been impacting the financial markets and day-to-day life as we know it. Government advice has now reached the point of social distancing – avoiding gatherings and staying away from pubs, clubs, entertainment venues, and such.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…There has been a raft of closures across the country of such venues, and the popular bowling venue is expected to be one of them any day now, especially in the wake of a host of cinemas announcing closures. Recent events and impactJust a few days ago, Hollywood Bowl announced positive trading news, but also noted the expectation of  impending closure for the foreseeable future, as well as measures being taken to mitigate the impact, such as cost-cutting.It announced that for the five months to 29 February, like-for-like sales were up 9% and revenue rose 13%. Performance and prospectsDespite the current doom and gloom, it has not always been the case. In the year to 30 September, total revenues increased 8% to £129.9m, while pre-tax profit jumped 15% to £27.6m and net debt shrank 16% to £2.1m. Management boosted the dividend 13% to 11.93p due to the positive performance. I always carefully consider share price dividend and net debt when carrying out my research and analysis. These were two key takeaways from the full-year results. The good news at the time resulted in a 7% spike in share price at the time. CEO Steve Burns happily announced the news at the time and indicated further investment into growth, “We have made a solid start to the new financial year and we expect to make further progress in our ongoing refurbishment programme, investment in technology and continued roll-out of customer innovations.”The current price-to-earnings ratio stands at just under 5, which is nothing to be concerned about in my opinion. What I would look at is profit level. The last two years have seen impressive profit margins delivered, with increases on the previous year. Additionally revenue has seen a steady year-on-year growth which indicates consumers’ appetite for this particular type of entertainment. Share price performance is key. In the previous month, it had a drop of approximately 60%, but at time of writing, it has staged a mini fightback. The share pricing stands at close to 100p compared to the low of 71p only a day or so ago. Over the longer term, the share price has been in good shape. From March 2017 until just before the coronavirus, there was an encouraging, healthy increase of approximately 80%.Bowled overDuring these turbulent times I believe certain stocks are high risk. Unfortunately, this is one of them. Despite positive signs and encouraging results in the past, the current pandemic is leading me to believe that it is not a stock I would be interested in at the moment. However, that said, I would be keen to monitor Hollywood Bowl’s viability once other factors subside and trading resumes.

See all posts by Roland Head Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The stock market crash has left many FTSE 100 dividend stocks offering yields of more than 8%. In these days of near-zero interest rates, this is very tempting. Unfortunately, we’re also seeing many companies suspend their dividends as a precaution against possible losses resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.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…Here, I’ve chosen five FTSE 100 stocks yielding over 8% which haven’t cut their payouts. Should I be buying these dividend stocks today?Housebuilding hero?FTSE 100 housebuilder Taylor Wimpey was planning to return around £610m to shareholders this year, or about 18.6p per share. This would give the shares an impressive 14% dividend yield.The company has been a good dividend stock in recent years. But profit forecasts are now falling and this payout is no longer covered by earnings. I expect the housing slowdown to extend beyond the pandemic.Although Taylor Wimpey ended last year with a cash balance of £640m, this drops down to a net debt of £184m, when loans and money owed for land purchases is included. I’m not buying.I’d buy this 9% dividend stockOil and gas supermajor BP is facing a big hit to profits this year as a result of the oil price crash. However, this FTSE 100 heavyweight has plenty of financial firepower and has survived such storms before.The company has cut planned spending and expects to continue receiving cash from asset sales. Although the dividend is unlikely to be covered by earnings this year, I don’t think it’ll be cut unless the oil slump continues into 2021. I think this 9% yield could be worth buying.City name promises 13% yieldFund manager M&G is a recent arrival in the FTSE 100. Formerly part of Prudential, it now operates independently.City forecasts for 2020 suggest a payout of 17.7p per share, giving a prospective yield of 13%. My sums suggest this payout could be affordable. If I’m right, it would make M&G one of the highest-yielding dividend stocks in the FTSE 100.My only concern is that this group is still in cost-cutting mode and needs to deliver real growth. However, I think this share’s forecast P/E of 6 already reflects this risk. I’d buy at current levels.Iron, steel and cashRussian mining and steel group Evraz has a reputation as one of the highest-yielding dividend stocks in the FTSE 100. The group paid around $1bn to shareholders in 2019. That gives the shares a trailing yield of about 22% at the current share price.City analysts don’t expect this bumper payout to be repeated in 2020. But they’re forecasting a total payout of $0.40 per share, which would give Evraz a dividend yield of about 13%.Demand for the group’s products could be hit by a Covid-19 recession. But this £4bn business still looks like a good income buy to me.This sin stock pays 12%Imperial Brands changed its name from Imperial Tobacco a few years ago. But the owner of brands such as JPS, West and Winston hasn’t changed its core business — selling cigarettes.Tobacco firms have been reliable dividend stocks for many years. High profit margins, strong cash generation and stable sales mean they’re able to provide generous payouts each year. Imperial is expected to trim its payout this year to speed up debt reduction. That still leaves the stock with a forecast yield of 12%. I see this as an income buy.last_img read more

APD Recognizes Outstanding Service to Apopka

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Chief Michael McKinley and Rookie of the Year Officer John GiarratanaOn June 6th, 2015, Sergeant Brett Webster responded to a report of a suspicious person. Webster arrived to find a subject in front of a building. He lost sight of him when the subject walked behind a parked van. Webster attempted to make contact with the subject, but found he had armed himself with a large Samurai sword. The subject demanded to speak with the chief of police and approached Webster. Webster immediately created distance with the subject, drew his weapon and ordered the subject to drop his weapon. After repeated orders, the subject dropped the sword and surrendered. * * * In 2015, 129 police officers died in the line of duty.  Their average age was 40 years old. The Apopka Police Department (APD) suffered no fatalities in 2015, but this harsh reality stares every officer in the face every day that they are on the job.On Friday evening, the APD came together to honor those who provided outstanding service to our community at the 2015 APD Annual Awards Program. The event was held at the Apopka Community Center on Central Avenue. 4-Rivers Barbecue catered the event.Pastor Freddie Filmore of Freedom Ministries gave the Invocation, The Apopka Police Honor Guard performed the Posting of the Colors and Sergeant Steve Harmon led the Pledge of Allegiance. Police Chief Michael McKinley  gave an introduction, and Mayor Joe Kilsheimer also offered opening remarks.* * *Officers Jason Wiggins and Jason BerryOn August 8th, 2015  Wiggins and  Berry responded to a call at a local bar in Apopka. A caller had advised that a woman was drinking in the establishment, while leaving her two toddlers unsupervised outside in a vehicle. Wiggins and Berry arrived and made contact with the mother. The woman denied the accusations and was obviously impaired. Wiggins and Berry conducted an investigation and determined that the allegations were in fact true and arrested her for Child Neglect. The father of the children was out of state, so Wiggins and Berry located local family members to take custody of the children to avoid them being further traumatized. It was discovered during the investigation that the mother had an interlock device on her vehicle due to her alcoholism and the children knew how to disable the device by blowing into it.*  *  * Chief McKinley and The APD handed out over 100 awards in over 20 categories. Here are the Employees of the Year, Medals and High Honors given out:Communications Technician of the Year – Haley LovellCivilian of the Year – Holly RoellRookie of the Year – Officer John GiarratanaOfficer of the Year – Officer Ashley SullivanSupervisor of the Year – Sergeant Ed ChittendenDistinguished Service – Sergeant Brett Webster and Detective Steve LandryLife Saving – Officer Barry Brown* * *Officer Amber LovelaceOn October 14th, 2015 Amber Lovelace responded to what was reported to be a pair of missing and endangered adults. The adults had both been diagnosed as being in the late stages of dementia. The pair had left that afternoon at around 2pm in an older model black and grey Chevrolet Caprice and had not been heard from since.  Lovelace conducted the initial investigation and issued a statewide Silver Alert. At about 8 pm, Lovelace was returning to her home after an extended shift due to this investigation. While in route to her home, she saw a vehicle matching the missing persons in the parking lot of the Market of Southside in Orlando. Lovelace confirmed that it was  the vehicle used by the missing couple. A short time later, the missing adults returned to the vehicle. They were  lost and disoriented, and were about to leave the area in a further attempt to return home.  Lovelace was able to summon medical attention for the pair and have them returned safely to their home.* * * Chief McKinley closed the ceremony by praising the entire Department;“What we heard tonight was just a small portion of what the men and women of the Apopka Police Department do every day.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

That is, the city planners and leaders tell the citizens how the city will be planned, when it really should be the other way around.”According to a written report, Mayor Terry Tornek agreed with that idea.“David was passionate about Pasadena and its roots in the City Beautiful Movement of nearly 100 years ago,” said Marsha Rood. “David wanted to bring Pasadena closer to those roots in planning for its future. Pasadena has lost a great champion.”The City Beautiful Movement was a reform philosophy of North American architecture and urban planning that flourished during the 1890s and 1900s. It was a part of the progressive social reform movement in North America under the leadership of the upper-middle class concerned with poor living conditions in all major cities.The movement, which was originally associated mainly with Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Washington DC, promoted beauty as a means to create moral and civic virtue among urban populations.Advocates of the philosophy believed that such beautification could increase the quality of life.“Much of Pasadena’s model city reputation can be found in the City Beautiful Movement and the work of George Damon, Dean of Engineering,” Wolf wrote in his book My City: The Model to Emulate. “In creating a more participatory process during the early visioning stages of planning, community aspirations were shared, finances were measured and an ambitious set of proposals were set in motion.” Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Herbeauty6 Fashion Trends You Should Never Try And 6 You’ll LoveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Trends To Look Like An Eye-Candy And 6 To Forget AboutHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeauty Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Top of the News Business News History Local Architect/Urbanist David Wolf is Dead at 54 STAFF REPORT Published on Monday, January 6, 2020 | 8:25 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Your email address will not be published.
