VR Gaming is the future. Glad to see E One getting into it. As VR systems become more affordable there will be a big increase in solo gamers buying into the concept.
Is someone selling down here? Seems to be getting quite a hammering from recent strength. Lots of stocks turning positive this morning but ETO still negative.

I have been gradually liquidating my residual position in ETO over the past 3 weeks and today I sold my final tranche in order to complete my exit. With today's share sales, my overall average exit price over the past 3 weeks was 417p. I have been an investor here for 8 years having bought my first tranche on 30 September 2010. With additional investments, and participation in the rights issue a couple of years ago, my average share cost price was just below 100p so this has been just over a 4 bagger for me over that period. It's been an interesting ride with Marwyn selling their 20% stake 3 years ago to CPPB, followed by ETO taking a larger stake in Peppa Pig and the subsequent placing and rights issue, which saw the shareprice crash down to circa 140p in early 2016. However my perseverance paid off and over the following two and a half years the shareprice more than trebled from that low point, including the 50% rise over the past 12 months. Seems a little strange to finally be out of ETO, which was one of my top two largest holdings for several years but there is always a time to take profits and move on. I think there is still further mileage for the shareprice but I am becoming a bit concerned that we are close to a market top and this could be compounded by various other factors such as Brexit, Trump and trade wars with China. Consequently, I have been decreasing my exposure to equities and increasing my cash position. As a result, I'm now 60% in cash and 40% in equities and will probably increase that ratio to 75/25 by early next year. Having now exited ETO completely, I wont be updating this thread any longer but I would like to wish all current shareholders good luck going forward.
Should head north from here on in, great results a while ago. P pig doing well etc..Roll on to £5.00
Heading to £5 soon?...I hope
Big move today with some volume behind it

The shareprice currently looks like it will close today at a new all time high !
Took advantage of the recent spike to top slice 10% of my holding today.
Peppa Pig’s helping to bring home the bacon Entertainment One, the film and TV company, said that it was on track to launch Peppa Pig: My First Movie Experience in Chinese cinemas early next year. The film, a co-production with Alibaba, the Chinese ecommerce giant, will be out in time for Chinese new year, the year of the pig. The company has become one of the largest independent TV and film distributors. Its fortunes have been boosted by the success of the Peppa Pig series, created by 3 animators who came up with the concept in a pub in 1999. It has reaped large broadcast licensing fees and merchandising income; the company has struck a deal with Merlin, the theme park operator, to feature Peppa Pig-themed rides. Yesterday it raised the valuation of its library of content from $1.7 billion to $2 billion, despite taking a £64 million impairment charge at one of its distribution businesses. The company said that it remained on track to hit its full-year profits forecasts, and this lifted the shares 34¾p, or 9.1 per cent, to 417p.

Trading update 27/9/2018 Entertainment One provides the following update on the Group's performance as it completes the six-month period ending 30 September 2018. Summary -- Trading for the Group over the first six months has been consistent with trends outlined at the start of the financial year. The Group anticipates full year financial performance will be in line with management expectations, with a similar H1/H2 weighting to FY18 -- Family & Brands continues to perform strongly, driven by ongoing consumer product roll-outs across a growing number of licensing contracts and SVOD deals -- In Film & Television a number of new scripted and unscripted television series were delivered during the period, with a robust pipeline of new series set up for development with partners. Film continues to transition from distribution to production activities, reflecting the ongoing changes across the industry -- The annual independent library valuation has been completed and the value of the Group's library assets has increased to US$2.0 billion as at 31 March 2018 (2018: US$1.7 billion), driven by a broad improvement across the Group's Family & Brands and Television operations and reflects the changes in film distribution referenced below. Changes in consumer behaviour within the content industry are accelerating at an unprecedented level. Entertainment One continues to respond to these changes through the ongoing reshaping of its Film businesses, transitioning away from a content acquisition and distribution model to focus increasingly on production activities. Commensurate with these changes, Entertainment One will record a one-off charge of GBP64 million primarily related to the impairment of certain assets within its film distribution businesses, including investment in older and slow-moving library content, home entertainment inventory and related costs. Approximately GBP60 million of this charge is non-cash related. -- The outlook for the underlying financial performance for the full year remains in line with management expectations. Group net debt:EBITDA is anticipated to be approximately 1.8x at the end of the current financial year in line with previous guidance. Darren Throop, Chief Executive, commented: "Entertainment One continues to execute its strategy to build a portfolio of the highest quality content. We continue to seek out strong creative partnerships, in line with our vision of building the leading talent-driven entertainment company in the world. Our momentum remains strong, supported by long term industry trends and new territorial opportunities. The Group's ongoing commitment to investing in its content portfolio has driven current year earnings and created future value, reflected in another increase in the independent library valuation. The financial performance of the business remains in line with management expectations for the year."
JPM The City broker also upgraded its price target to 546p from 423p this was back in june
Nice rise today, any idea's why? Be nice to break £4 this week :-)
Looking very strong in a weak market.
Kames buying in here
Quick question (I haven't been able to find the answer but might have just missed it) - how much revenue does this "$1.7Bn" rights library generate? For an asset of that size I would expect a return of at least 5% per annum, is the rights revenue shown anywhere in the accounts? In the meantime Netflix and Amazon (not to mention Apple and Disney) are swamping the market with new content. To my thinking this level of new content generation is bad news for existing rights libraries but good news for content and ancilliary service providers (e.g. production houses, sub-titling services, etc). Still good news for ETO but I'm not sure this continued focus on the rights library valuation is the right place for our attention.
"The Company's rights library, valued at US$1.7bn (at 31 March 2017), is exploited across all media formats and includes more than 80,000 hours of film and television content and approximately 40,000 music tracks." RNS Number: 8013X. 15 August 2018 Current market cap of £1.34bn, @344p, compared with rights library valuation of £1.34bn at the current exchange rate of £=US$1.27.
