nod: In the absence of news, GAW is moving with the whole market rather than on its own merit. Some stocks are falling because their business is suffering. This negative sentiment feeds through to other companies. Touch wood, that's not the GAW story.
nod: Edison Group has updated its view, increasing its FY22 Dividend Forecast. We believe the company’s cash position is better than we expected given the declaration of a further dividend (70p/share), taking the cumulative (financial) year to date total to 235p/share. We make no changes to our forecasts beyond increasing our FY22 dividend estimate to 235p/share, a flat dividend versus FY21. The share price weakness means that the P/E multiples for FY22e (19.3x) and FY23e (18.7x). There is a PDF available to download. hTTps://
km18: Games Workshop issued a Q3 trading update and also announced a 70p dividend this morning in line with the company’s policy of distributing truly surplus cash. Total dividends declared in the year so far are £2.35 per share up from FY21 £1.85. Trading in the three months to the end of February 2022 has been in line with expectations. And expectations are upbeat and for another year of solid and profitable growth, with revenues up to a record £384m and net profit £129m. Balance sheet is strong, but valuation is a little on the high side with forward PE ratio at 18, PS ratio over 6. The share price is also in a 6-month correction and lacks momentum. GAW is a solid, growing and profitable company, but it is a share to monitor for the time being....from WealthOracleAM
m_e_x: We are due a trading statement / update in mid March - I am really hoping that is positive, contains some numbers, and stops this slow death slide It has been very disappointing to see the slide from £123 to £73 over the past six months, without any real bad news from the company I am unfortunately expecting another bland "trading in line with expectations" in March, which will mean that no further meaningful information is available until the announcement in early June 2022, when rough results for the year to 31 May 2022 are known. Long term, I am still reasonably confident of this turning into an IP / media powerhouse, but the share price free fall has been very tough to watch! I think back to my post on this board from July 2021: "M_E_X27 Jul '21 - 14:18 - 5341 of 5880 Edit Does anyone else fear that GAW are losing their way? I am a long time shareholder and have most of my net worth invested in this business. But the comments about rising executive pay, high staff bonuses, focus on ESG and the environment, plus things like re-paying all furlough and other money, make me worry..." And from November 2021: " M_E_X - 14 Nov 2021 - 13:00:32 - 5573 of 5881 Games Workshop & Warhammer Online - GAW I know the Board won't change their ways, but the lack of consistent trading updates and lack of a consistent dividend pattern is just another stick that the media use to beat the stock with. I do wish they would be more consistent in terms of timing! I also do think it is poor form to skip an update after the profit warning a few weeks ago, as I thought it was poor form to provide so few updates during COVID. COVID turned out very well, but I am still nervous about the time between now and getting the 6 month results in Christmas! Also, did anyone else notice that the Chair of the Audit Committee left the Board a few weeks ago? There was an RNS. Again, that would be a fairly major red flag for any other company - but I didn't see it mentioned here." I am starting to wish that I put my money where my mouth was!!
trainsailing: Other than a very vocal minority throwing their toys out the pram in response to GAW protecting their IP and the supply chain issues that are affecting most businesses right now nothing has changed. It’s all noise. GAWs reluctance to engage with the city and journalists has led to some negative articles mentioning ‘dividend cuts’ and ‘boycotts̵7; which is complete BS. The share price is currently sat at the bottom of its trading range yet some people are making out disaster has struck and the share price is in the doldrums. Laughable really. The shorters seem to be forgetting the massive potential for revenue growth that is still to come through growing into Asia, Warhammer+ and intellectual property rights.
sd_anon: That sharp share price increase around lunch time must have been an institutional investor to move the dial that much. I place a tentative bet on Sanford Deland topping up. Regretting selling my buffetology holding, maybe time to dip back in. For anyone worrying about recent news and share price movement on GAW, I was getting concerned until I updated my spreadsheets. All looks fine to me. FX is only ever tiny and logistics costs aren't huge, not insignificant but nothing that can't be covered without too much pain. Merchandising & Logistics £36.2m FY20, £47.3 FY21 Maybe £60m-£65m for FY22? Last years divi paid was 185p (before you tell me, I know 235p declared, but the last 50p was paid in this financial year and I'm reconciling to the annual reports). 275p looks affordable this year (inc the 50p) still leaving them with £85m in the bank at year end. Time will tell if I'm right. GLA
epo001: And of course everything should be a penny share, always. The share price is what it is, a stock split would be irrelevant to GAW's business performance and would cost money, which could otherwise be reinvested or paid in dividends. US shares like Apple and Tesla split because that is partly what their shareholder mentality expects (more is better) but also because the share price got rather high. GAW at £500 may have a case for a split but the argument that a dividend should always be reinvestable is too silly to debate, I wonder how many companies would pass that test. Pro tip, save up until you have enough! Now Lindsell Train at £1535/share is a bit pricey. maybe they should have a 1000:1 split as well
cambst: Hi, I guess the absolute share price is more of an issue when you are talking about £700-1,000 than £100. But, as I understand it and experience it, smaller investors have less flexibility to take positions in their desired amount if the share price is very high. Fractional trading in the US has mitigated this, so it is less of an issue there, yet they still do it. For example, I was able to buy a small fraction of a share in Amazon, even though I could not afford to own 1 whole share: I still benefitted from their gains and was not priced out of the market. In the UK, conversely, one is not able to hold a fraction of a GAW share. Of course, the Games Workshop share price is not absolutely as high as these US names, but I believe that still is the highest absolute share price in the UK. Another reason smaller investors might favour a split, and I use myself as an example, I would like to reinvest my dividends in GAW, but as I only own 33 shares the dividends do not cover the purchase of a full share. If the share price was lower, but I had the same amount invested, I could buy more shares and benefit from additional compounding. The age of the investor is not relevant, this is true, but regardless, I believe it is true that the average age of Robinhood investors is at the lower end. This is just a fact. Younger people tend to have smaller amounts of money to be investing, and are their portfolios might therefore be more weight sensitive. If you are buying in the tens of thousands of pounds then the price doesn’t matter, if you are buying in the hundreds or 1-2 thousand then it might be a small consideration. And yes, the share price of Nvidia would still have risen. However, it did receive a nice bump and you did not hear share holders complaining. Same with Apple and Tesla.
nod: Buffettjnr16 Sep '21 - 08:56 - 5439 of 5473 0 0 0 Oh well. Graphs never lie. Too early to close the short. GAW is a very difficult company to short or trade as it is still growing and highly profitable. I tried trading GAW in the early 90s, in the days when I was a trader more than an investor. It was the fashion then to trade any stock. It's very hard to trade a growing company with a great product. The companies to trade are the overhyped in-vogue sectors like IT, mining, biotech, ... A lesson for me was Apple. It was always overpriced, since the late 80s. I tried trading it - with mixed success. I may have a very good trade and the next two were losses. I realised that Buy and Hold would have been 30 times more profitable. My last purchase in GAW was in early 2009 (not long after I started this thread) at just below 200. At that time I had concerns because the online gaming venture was turning to custard following the GFC. Fast forward, the share price today is over 50 times what I paid. Plus, I now earn more in dividends each year than I paid for my shares. I have been tempted many many times to sell - on sharp rises or the very honest company updates that depress the share price. If you are an investor in a highly profitable company that is not in a speculative sector, think long and hard before you try to trade. If you keep a core holding then it can be a win-win. Buffett never traded. He bought. He held. Long term.
