You see over the next decade or so, it’s estimated that the world will need an additional $3trn worth of new commercial aircraft. As Rolls is at the forefront of the commercial jet engine market, the company is set to profit for this trend. 

Rolls currently offers a dividend yield of 2.5%.

Return to profit 

International Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG) profits are surging as the company’s Spanish subsidiary, Iberia, returns to growth and fuel costs drop. The company’s earnings per shares (EPS) are set to expand by 54.2% this year and IAG’s shares currently trade at a forward P/E of 13.6. 

What’s more, IAG EPS are set to expand a further 40% during 2016 as yet more cost savings filter through the group’s structure. On this basis, IAG is trading at a 2016 P/E of 8.8.

City analysts believe that IAG will initiate a 1.7% dividend yield this year. 

Housing boom 

As the UK’s housing boom continues, Taylor Wimpey’s (LSE: TW) profits are set to surge over the next two years. 

Taylor is currently trading at a forward P/E of 10.1 and City analysts expect the company’s EPS to grow around 34% during 2015. On that basis the company is trading at a PEG ratio of 0.3, indicating growth at a reasonable price. 

Additionally, unlike most growth shares, Taylor also offers a hefty dividend yield. Indeed, the company is set to support a dividend yield in excess of 6% for the next two years.

So, with these figures in mind, it looks as if Taylor offers a rare combination of both growth and income that could be too hard to pass up. 

Payment processor 

Payment processor Optimal Payments (LSE: OPAY) is a high-growth, cash-generative, cash-rich company that’s trading at a rock-bottom valuation. The company is currently trading at a forward P/E of 12.1 and EPS growth of 24% is expected this year.

Further, EPS growth of 14% is expected during 2016, so Optimal is trading at a 2016 P/E of 11.3. Optimal offers no dividend is on offer but the group’s rapid growth more than makes up for the lack of income. The shares currently trade at a PEG ratio of 0.5.

Return to fame

High-street retailer Game (LSE: GMD) returned to the market last year, after being taken over by a private equity group during 2012. 

Now the company is rapidly returning to growth. Game currently trades at a forward P/E of 11.2 and EPS growth of 63% expected this year. In addition, City analysts expect Game’s EPS to jump a further 20% during 2016 and on this basis the company is currently trading at a 2016 P/E of 10.9.

City analysts expect the company to initiate a dividend this year. A yield of 5.6% is expected based on current figures.
