"One prominent retailer summed current trading up thus: “The market is being driven by red hot toys and discounting.” Several ranges have got off to a great start; PJ Masks, LOL Surprise, Fingerlings, Spinners and Fidget Cubes amongst others."|
|Looking back at the previous attempts at breaking out of this price range they were all on the back of large one or two day jumps in share value, this time there does seem to be a more measured approach. Will it make a difference? Only time will tell. I think once the resistance is broken we might see some blue sky rises for a while at least.|
|A new interview with the UK and Aus heads of TV. Mentions 6 upcoming tv shows.
"Upcoming projects from the indie include Sharp Objects with Amy Adams for HBO, Picture Paris with Meg Ryan for EPIX and La Dolce Vita with Mediaset in Italy."
"They came to us saying they had a deal to produce Roberto Saviano’s (Gomorrah) next original TV series. He wants to tell the story of Gaddafi. We got incredibly excited by this—one of the top names in Italy, a fantastic subject."
“Gregor brought us the project as a film, but we’ve since decided to make it as a TV series. We’re looking for a U.K. partner. It’s gritty social realism running parallel with a supernatural bent that shines a light on the surf culture in Australia.”
"In the U.K., eOne is working on an adaptation of the Charlotte Brontë novel Villette."
|My final return to trading after the disaster that was Just Group Plc and I'm back with entertainment shares in a single company.
I hope I don't bring you all bad luck, at least I'm not putting all my trust in some Butt Ugly Martians this time.|
|Sharp move up this morning and making another attempt to break the 250 resistance.
Peppa pig 'film' now on £2.3m in its 2nd week, trending slightly ahead of the first film.|
|We've all waited long enough ... this will fly soon|
|cracking review in the guardian about how the concept of the numerous pre screen adverts prepares you for life|
|RBC Capital Markets new rating of outperform and 290 price target.
The new peppa pig 'film' pulled in £1m from its opening weekend in the uk.|
|Fair enough foxeye2 lets agree to disagree where this stock is heading. On a separate note interesting price action today.|
|The comments I made six months ago were based on my own research which were indeed factual, but I do not intend to argue with other posters who do not share my views. I would only urge others to regularly review their investments in the light of changing developments. If the situation with ETO were to change dramatically, I may even reinvest myself but I think it highly unlikely.
I shall say no more as I have no revelations or other input which will be of benefit to others, which I consider to be a prime purpose of these Boards. I do wish each and everyone of you well and sincerely hope that we ALL make a profit from this or other stocks. Hopefully, some will consider my words and re-evaluate their current investments to ensure they remain 'fit for purpose'. I ask nor suggest anything else.|
|Foxeye2 when you first made your comments 6 months ago they were not based on facts. The only reason your back on this board is the prediction you made by chance came true. I suspect that if the share had taken off you would not have returned to say you got it wrong.|
|If we all new the exact right time to buy and sell a stock we would all be millionaires foxeye2.|
|amoore; You may well disagree, but my comments are based on facts, i.e. the price six months ago was 234p, the price this morning was 244p - a rise of 10p in six months. Those are the undisputed facts. Your presumption of the stock being undervalued and that the price will rise, is based on hope and optimism, little more.
By all means hold and I genuinely hope you make a profit, but I think there are more promising companies in which to invest. I am simply urging others to regularly review and re-evaluate their research not just for ETO but for all their investments, rather than relying on luck, optimism and hope as many on this Board seem to do.|
|Totally disagree Foxeye2. This share is undervalued and it will rise to over 300p at some point and possibly up to 400p. Maybe not anytime soon but it will happen.|
|Shares trend foxeye. It is a fact and i agree it can be a boring slog but eone is not alone in this in fact all shares trend from time to time. If you have made money elsewhere then hats off to you. I will remain here because sooner or later the trend will end.|
|Precisely six months ago, on the 12th October, 2016, vide post 7499, I made derisory comments about ETO suggesting there were many other companies which appeared to be better placed and likely to be more profitable for investors. The price per share at that time, was 234p. Today it stands at 244p, a 'massive' rise of 10p over six months.
I had made similar comments on the 26th February, 2016, more than a year ago, suggesting that ETO were something of a 'gamblers' stock, not an 'investment' stock.
On both occasions, others criticised my comments and suggested that I was wrong and didn't know what I was talking about, yet I suggest recent performance over the last six months, in fact shows my assumptions were correct and during that time, I consider it is only the Board members who have made money through their salaries.
I am not suggesting what you should, or should not do, nor am I suggesting other alternative investment vehicles, but I would urge individuals to revisit their research into ETO and then make a decision according to their particular circumstances. I have no hidden agenda as I sold out a long time ago, (thank God) but urge others to think for themselves rather than just blindly follow some of the more optimistic posters on this Board.|
|Decided to top slice a few thou at 240. Still a strong takeover target but it seems a good price to secure some profit.|
|Noticeable tick up in average shares on loan for March, reported by Euroclear.
|Still reckon Netflix might have a pop of a takeover bid.|
|Looks like bid speculation could be starting up again !
"Will a takeover bid come back on the table for Entertainment One, owner of Peppa Pig? As any parent of a toddler knows, the cheeky swine obsessed with muddy puddles is as popular as ever. And now she is coming to a big screen near you with an hour-long cinematic debut. The brand is worth $1.3bn a year in merchandising alone, with 50m Peppa toys sold globally." Prufrock, The Sunday Times, 2 April 2017
Peppa: billion dollar pig
Today the Peppa brand is worth $1.3bn in retail annually: 50m toys and 30m books have been sold worldwide and 6m people have visited Peppa Pig World, a part of Paultons Family Theme Park in Hampshire, featuring Peppa rides, since it opened in 2011. The show has been broadcast in 180 territories and translated into more than 40 languages......In 2015, Entertainment One upped its stake in ABD, from 50% to 70%, and increased its share of the royalties from sales and merchandise to 85%.

|Peppa Pig breaks America with £160m sales boost for Entertainment One
Sales of Peppa Pig-related merchandise in US retail stores such as Target topped $200m (£160m) last year, EOne said. It did not disclose a figure for the prior year, although in its half-year results in November it said the brand had recorded a 275% rise in US revenue compared to the same period a year ago - suggesting 2015 revenues were in the region of $53m. It now has 65 licensing partners in the US, where the series is broadcast seven days a week on the Nick Jr channel, as it looks to broaden the appeal of the hit cartoon overseas.

|ETO is a FTSE 250 stock.|
|Saying that revenues and EBIT are up is hardly surprising given the large acquisitions made in the last year.
It is good to see that film has improved as expected.
My concern all along has been their ability to generate lots of cash and clean after tax profits and this statement does not make it very clear.
I am inclined to take a stake but perhaps a bit smaller than my normal for a FTSE 350 stock.|
