investorschampion: Games Workshop: temporary full shut down. Those directors who offloaded £1.3m of shares in February might be inclined to buy back at current levels, although, despite the significant share price fall, it still remains at a higher level than 12 months ago.

sogoesit: From an article in this week's MoneyWeek titled "The end of outsourcing?" (Vertical integration strategy vs outsourcing) "From a long-term investor’s point of view, then, financially robust and highly profitable vertically-integrated companies are a compelling prospect. As Renishaw’s recent experience illustrates, however, investors should be prepared to ride out some nasty short-term share-price dips. Here are my favourites to consider. ..... Games Workshop (LSE: GAW) Games Workshop is the company behind Warhammer, a unique presence on the British high street. The stores are dedicated to a single hobby, Warhammer, which involves painting science-fiction and fantasy-themed model soldiers and associated props and using them to play out fantasy battles according to rules made up by the company. The battles are set in two imaginary universes with rich histories mythologised in countless books and magazines published by Games Workshop. It is, perhaps, the most vertically-integrated company of all those mentioned in this article. Games Workshop manufactures models in Nottingham and operates two additional distribution hubs in Memphis, Tennessee and Sydney, Australia. From these it supplies its own stores, customers who order online and independent hobby stores. Over half of total revenue in 2019 was earned through Games Workshop’s own channels. The company has experienced a dramatic surge in popularity in recent years. This is due to incremental improvements inspired by insights only possible because of Games Workshop’s deep-rooted relationship with its customers, from which it recruits store managers. It has changed the materials it uses to make more detailed models, relaunched games with simpler rules and new stories and launched Warhammer Community, a website that supports and markets the hobby. It also earns income from video-game developers, who license Warhammer’s characters and stories, and is planning a TV series. Surging sales have led to an even more remarkable increase in profit due to the company’s fixed cost base. In 2019, Games Workshop earned a remarkable 45% return on capital, three times the return it earned a few years earlier. The shares are not cheap, though. They are on a debt-adjusted p/e ratio of 35 and recent sales of shares by directors suggest that, for now at least, the share price is finally catching up with expectations."
nod: Directors and employees can participate in the Sharesave scheme, where they save a monthly amount and have the option to use their savings to buy shares at a modest 20% discount. Previous director sales have never been an indicator of the future share price. In 2018, Kevin sold half his shareholding to buy a house. He could have bought two houses today.An extract from the last Annual Report:"The options above were granted under the Games Workshop Group PLC 2015 Sharesave Scheme which grants options at a 20% discount on the market price at grant. Participants save a fixed amount monthly for three years in order to fund the exercise of the option. At exercise an individual may choose to exercise their option or have their savings repaid to them. This scheme is open to all eligible employees and directors who satisfy a service qualification of at least three months. There are no performance targets associated with these options."
robinnicolson: Phil Oakley of IC writes (and talks) about the GW directors' recent share dealings in his latest column and podcast titled... "skin in the game". It may explain the share price weakness this afternoon.
shanklin: FWLIW, I just posted the following on The Times website in response to today's Patrick Hosking article specifically the paragraph: "It would be silly to suggest that Games Workshop was an obvious “buy” in 2016. But there were clues. Unless we recognise that, active stockpicking is heading for even deeper trouble." "Looking back at GW market announcements, the first "ahead of... ...expectations" RNS was issued on 2-Oct-16, when the share price was circa £5.00. More "ahead of expectations" RNSes were issued on 01-Dec-16, 17-Jan-17 and 6-Mar-17. By then in my opinion, it was becoming progressively more obvious that GW was completely mispriced. The share price was still under £10, earnings were growing strongly and it was paying 95p/year in dividends (9.5% yield is not too shabby). I initially bought in Mar-17 and added another 50% to my position on 02-Jun-17 (still under £10) when there was yet another "ahead of expectations" RNS, Throughout the whole period, Peel Hunt, perhaps at GW guidance, have provided remarkably pessimistic broker forecasts, which have regularly been beaten by wide margins. The current forecast P/E in the market is 29 but has no credibility. In my opinion, it is much more likely to be circa 25. Unlike say Fevertree which has a minimal moat, GAW has a massive moat and has only just started its efforts to roll out its sales network globally and to exploit their IP through film, games, TV programmes, etc. Whilst not wanting to be a hostage to fortune, I strongly suspect the strong growth will continue for many years. For what its worth I did sell 20% of my initial holding at an average just under £50, but I really can't see the point currently of selling any more."
shanklin: All this excitement re GAW could cause me problems. Up to now, the broker has suppressed exuberance in GAW by issuing ludicrously low broker forecasts, thus holding back the share price .. ...albeit fine company performance has meant the share price from circa £5 to circa £70. This has happened without the forward P/E becoming anything remotely exciting, certainly not reaching BOO levels of circa 50, and with pretty conservative media coverage. But now it seems to be being tipped everywhere, which may cause the share price to become less boring. Yet GAW EPS, even with the daftly low forecasts for H2, is forecast to have grown by a factor of about 5.5 over 2016–>2020, which is more than BOO where the corresponding number is just under 5. I am not unhappy about the idea of the GAW share price doubling from here to put it on a similar valuation to BOO. But would GAW getting to a forward P/E of 50 cause me to reduce my position (for the sake of prudence) and cost me money in the long term... ...given it will be taking over the world in due course. What a quandary to have, or am I just over-reaching?
investorschampion: What’s not to love about GAW, after a 1200% share price rise in the last five years (including 5% following the interim results announcement), could be heading for the FTSE 100. Read our analysis of the latest results here: hxxps://
nod: If anyone had said 12 months ago that the share price will go up 50% in 2019 I would have said they were mad. But here we are. The share price ups and downs are normal for a company trading very well. There is nothing to worry about at the moment.
wildshot: dragonfly63, you say that you've never seen this downtrend before? Please look at the chart of the share price, such as Oct 18 and prior. This is not a significant downtrend and the fall in share price is not based on any news in the public domain. It could just be profit taking and general trading levels. I've been mainly in this share for many years and this fall is nothing significant or anything to worry about. If you like the share and think it is fairly valued with good prospects then I wouldn't let this short term downtrend be a concern. If you are reluctant maybe wait for it to turn and trade up for 2-3 days in a row. A lot of my biggest winners, including GAW have fallen over the last week or two, it is just noise.
walbrock82: Do you want to know if GAW share price will continue to rise or has earnings peaked and become unsustainable? The analysis is right here:
