|Sorry to hear that, you poor thing.dividend of 25 pence per share. This will be paid on 2 June 2017|
|Geeezz it was hot in Tenerife !!
What's all this about another dividend ?
How much, when and why ?|
|Woozle...think its actually £1!20 in april25 october30 january25 march|
|Since 20th April last year GAW has paid out 90p in dividends .. No bad really .. It seems that this growth is down lots of different initiatives .. Even if they can get 10% top line growth the flow of dividends should continue .. W|
|cfro, it's a game for them. That's what they do, they create games :)|
|For anyone buying in Sept/Oct 2016 it's over 15% in 6 months!|
|Very nice indeed, would think that GAW would be attractive to income investors. Must be getting on for 10% yield now in the last year?|
|30p in jan, 25p march...hope this becomes a regular bi-monthly event.Would assume that the "significant increase" in sales and profits since November has continued since January.|
|Holy cow! Another DIVI!|
|Why change a winning formula ??|
|That's lovely then, another nice 25p divi to look forward to. :-)
It just baffles me as to why they they insist on surprising investors in this way and can't pay-out the divi's with the normal release of results like most companies do?|
|The warning covers GAW for all eventualities.North America is a big chunk of the business now with 100+ stores. N America Trade revenue is greater than UK and Europe combined.There are only a few months left in this financial year, so even a big currency movement will not likely have a major impact FY.Who knows what could happen though.We live in uncertain times.A major escalation between the Trump Government and [insert any country here] could see large currency movements.|
|they always say this|
|just researching these again.
Can somebody enlighten me on the following that was in the trading statement :
"the Board remains aware that there is some uncertainty in the trading periods ahead for the rest of the 2016/17 financial year. A further update will be given as appropriate."
is this to do with Brexit and the strength of the pound possibly or was there something else ?|
|The Fantasy range was never GW's cash cow, that's their 40k range. The Fantasy range suffered from complexity and high entry cost. The new AoS was radical and it isolated a few verterans but has likely sucked in a lot of newer players. It was coming under increasing competition anyway and needed a review. Simplicity and accessibility is the way that the industry has been heading.
40k is now being progressed and also needs some trimming down. Could be a progressive year for this product which should help drive further growth. It also has growing competition and needs to react to this.
GW have also taken on board a lot of comments regarding their transparency to their customer base. They are beginning to communicate more openly and are even attending the UK Games Expo this year, a big change for them. The board game division is also selling well, another area that is growing globally outside of GW, so good to tap into that market area as well.|
|That said, I spoke to some veteran (50+) gamers who really like Sigma as it is easily accessible and you don't need to spend a huge amount of money building an Army. The younger players I spoke to had the same opinion, and they also added this makes a more level playing field as the person with the most skill can win, not just the biggest army (which translates to the person with the most money). All interesting stuff, I've been in since April last year and whilst I thought it was good for 20% or so, never expected anything like the rise it has had so quickly.|
|Yes, it was a bold move which alienated most of the veteran gamers.|
|We certainly are. There seems to be some real momentum in the business. I think Age of Sigmar has really invigorated Fantasy. I remember thinking that the End Times in Fantasy was a risk but it's really paid off.
|Another good day for GAW.I believe we are at an all-time high now. The previous high was set in early January 2005.|
|Jan and Feb are not traditionally strong months for GAW. Things must be going v well|
|Love this share. Bought at 470. Had some cracking dividends in last year which reinvested in full.Amazing. Absolutely love it.|
|Finally bought into these today - stockopedia rank of 99 and strong technicals.|
|I hope Peel Hunt is correct :)That would be a 26% increase from today's close.|
|Peel Hunt raised their price target to 1150p from 1000p.|
|Confirmed breakout on the chart.|
