nod: Yes, it's not just a case of comparing today's statement relative to its last statement. In releasing this today GAW would have considered this week's share price / valuation and (imho) has concluded that a warning was necessary in accordance with LSE rules. i.e. Trading has materially changed since its last statement.The mind boggles.It could be that predators are circling.

nod: The trading update so far in advance of December would suggest to me that GAW is smashing its previous forecasts and furthermore doesn't think that today's share price is above valuation - otherwise they could be accused of pumping an already inflated share price - and GAW has never done that.GAW has always been ultra-conservative with its RNS and foreword statements. Like an army on the battleground, GAW prefers to surprise. So this RNS strikes me as an exceptional warning that profits are going to be huge..."TRADING STATEMENTFollowing on from the Group's update in September, sales to date have continued strongly. Given the high operational gearing of the business, any movement in sales is directly reflected in profits. Sales and profits to date therefore continue to be well above the same period in the prior year."

nod: This is not an entirely accurate write-up and is misleading in places. MF has consistently been wrong in its analysis of and prediction for GAW. As MF now predict GAW will make me fabulously rich from this point forth then I will go along with them. One important point they do get wrong is the inference that GAW has gone nowhere in 20 years. GAW has produced excellent dividends during many of these 20 years and stupendous capital growth at times. GAW is not a buy-and-go-to-sleep for 20 years. I can’t think of many companies that have been. Warren Buffet likes companies that have an unassailable moat around them and Buffet’s “Moat Test” is a key part of his investment strategy. GAW has been good at building moats, as you might expect given their business of battle strategies. http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/10/11/2-small-cap-growth-stocks-that-could-make-you-fabulously-rich/ 2 small-cap growth stocks that could make you fabulously rich Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 11th October, 2017 After years of volatility and no overall price gain in nearly 20 years, shares in Games Workshop Group (LSE: GAW) have taken off like a rocket over the last year — they’ve more than trebled in value in 12 months to 2,030p. After a gradual climb, June’s trading update ahead of full-year results inspired a spike, and since then it’s just been up and up. In the end, the year to May 2017 saw a 127% rise in pre-tax profit coupled with an 84% hike in operating cash generation. Earnings per share more than doubled to 95.1p, and the dividend was lifted by 85% to 74p per share. Chief executive Kevin Rountree described the year as a “fun and exciting” one, suggesting that “prospects for the business are good” — and at least the second part of that seems modest. Strong margins A sales boost from the fall in sterling has certainly helped, as most of the company’s sales are overseas, but I see another long-term cash cow here too. Games Workshop’s margins are high, with a very impressive gross margin of 72.4% for 2017, and it really doesn’t require a lot of capital expenditure to keep it going. And though it’s taken a long time for the share price to get moving, the company has been paying out handsome dividends for years. This year is already off to a good start, with Q1 sales and profits “well above the same period in the prior year” and the firm telling us we should be seeing expectations-busting results this year. Forecast dividends of 100p would provide a yield of 4.9% with the shares on a P/E of 15, and that looks good to me. A million by retirement Shares like these two tucked away in your SIPP give you the hope of enjoying growth and dividends for years to come after you retire, and there are more top shares out there that can do the same.

nod: To illustrate how useless professional analysts and tipsters can be, I recently highlighted how Shareprophets had GAW as a basket case two years ago when share price was around 600p.And more recently Motley Fool seemed to have not a clue:By The Motley Fool 30 Jun 2017, 13:45OutlookThe prospects for retailers such as Game Digital and Games Workshop(LSE: GAW) appear to be rather bleak. The outlook for consumer spending remains tough and, realistically, things could get worse before they get better. Political risk remains high, and this could hurt business confidence and create a prolonged period of economic gloom. This may lead to profit warnings across the retail sector such as that experienced by Game Digital on Friday....In the case of Games Workshop, it is forecast to deliver a fall in earnings of 11% this year. This is due to be followed with growth of 3% next year. Given that it trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14.6, it seems to lack a sufficiently wide margin of safety to warrant investment at the present time. While the company may have a sound strategy and strong business model, external factors could count against it and lead to relatively disappointing share price performance.

pnetol: Wow that 100,000 buy earlier at £15.00 has really put a fire under the share price today , long may it continue. What's great is that my sons are telling me to hold the shares as the line up for the new Warhammer 40k looks awesome, their is a massive battle across the world to try to save the world of Kondor, apparently it's "awesome". They also tell me that the new computer game for Total War Warhammer II is due out in September, but if you order early then you get an addition to the previ game. It all sounds rather exciting doesn't it.

This may lead to profit warnings across the retail sector such as that experienced by Game Digital on Friday.In terms of the future prospects for the firm, it seems to be dependent upon the supply levels of the latest Nintendo console. While it is optimistic about this, there is no guarantee that supply levels will improve. Therefore, it may be prudent for investors to await further updates before buying a slice of the business, given its uncertain outlook.In the case of Games Workshop, it is forecast to deliver a fall in earnings of 11% this year.

simso: Thanks Nod. I am investing significantly in Games Workshop, yet feel slightly uncomfortable in not fully understanding it. The recently reported exceptional performance in the second half has clearly moved the share price up, and the broker note expressed the view that recent performance had been surprisingly strong against their expectation of a tail off in advance of the 8th edition launch. Perhaps there was no tail off..but more the opposite case of a peak of vets buying before stock is replaced by 8th edition. Is there a one off spike in sales performance at the end of last financial year for this very reason, which may be difficult to repeat, or is it (as I hope) that the new year ahead will be much stronger than last year driven by sales of the new 8th edition.

trident5: Nod - yes, but any fall back will not be from a lofty height. Whilst the share price has gone up a lot lately - relative to dividends of £1 over the last few months it is not expensive.

pnetol: Wow, briefly suspended, the 10% movement rule and they uncrossed a few mins later at 1054, what a spectacular day. I wonder what the house broker will upgrade their share price target to???It must be a minimum of £1.00-£2.00 higher than the current £11.50 me thinks

nod: I would agree with most of this MF article except perhaps the conclusion. The shares are currently cheap because licensing is lumpy. It has always been lumpy - a point I have made on this board for ten years. If license revenues fall next year that is expected and already in the price.Britain was a world leader in video games and still provides the talent to many US companies. What a shame British software developers can't get the financial backing anymore.The article raises some valid points about the core business "spluttering" due to poorly implemented changes.MF article follows:Video gaming is big business. The industry is valued at around $100bn right now and with the rise of mobile gaming and the widening of the demographics that are playing, it only looks set to expand.Unfortunately for us, most video game studios tend to list in America, but there are a few small-cap shares with direct exposure to this gargantuan and growing industry, one of which I believe could transform your portfolio. From tabletop to desktopGames Workshop (LSE: GAW) is famous for its Warhammer and Lord of the Rings tabletop war-games. These games have rich backgrounds and gamers are as invested in experiencing the game worlds as they are in playing the game itself."The history behind these fictional worlds has been built up since 1975. There are literally hundreds of novels and thousands of short stories written about the universe. One of those novels, A Thousand Sons by Graham McNeil, even hit the New York Times Best Sellers List. The rich tapestry created by this library of fiction isn't easily replicated and the resultant fictional worlds are the company's greatest assets. Gaming studios are often attracted by the detailed lore and established customer base, and pay Games Workshop handsomely to take advantage of both.But the company's core business of selling models to hobbyists is spluttering, largely due to poorly received rule changes and aggressive price hikes. Sales have fallen from a peak of £134.6m in 2013 to £118m last year. This took an even greater toll on core operating profit, which fell 27% last year, but a mammoth jump in video game licensing profit from £1.5m to £5.9m kept operating profits level.Unfortunately, with the core business struggling and licensing income depending on the success of outside influences, Games Workshop's prospects are unclear right now.Trading at only 12.4 times last year's earnings, the shares may appear cheap, but if the lumpy licensing income was to return to 2015's level, operating profit could drop from £16.9m to around £12.5m, with the share price likely to follow.Therefore, I recommend waiting on the sidelines unless the core business turns around.http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2016/09/28/are-these-uk-small-caps-the-best-ways-to-play-the-video-gaming-boom/
