nod: Wonderful press comments around the world. Not a single negative. No uncertain words in the update for the press to latch onto. FT Games Workshop has fine-tuned its proposition and hit on a winning formula. The fantasy world seems less susceptible to going in and out of fashion and that should enable the company to keep delivering the magic. UK Telegraph Analysts at Peel Hunt called the update 'storming' and said they expected Games Workshop to reveal growth in trade, retail and online sales channels for the first half when it issues more details. The Times A company that specialises in creating war games involving goblins and dwarfs continues to claim victory in the battle on the high street. BBC But one 250 stock has won all the glory today: Games Workshop's share price is up 19% after this morning's very positive trading update suggested its heading towards more victories on the retail battlefield. Sharesmagazine Peel Hunt today reaffirms its buy investment rating on Games Workshop Group PLC (LON:GAW) and raised its price target to 5000p from 4750p. Thisismoney Why is Games Workshop on the up? Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said: "Games Workshop continues to be a master in the art of brevity with its latest trading statement. The message is fairly simple: earnings are growing which is a commendable feat in the troubled world of retail. Having a niche focus can help certain retailers be isolated from the pains facing general merchandisers. In Games Workshop’s case, it couldn’t be any more niche if it tried. Its customers are fanatical, loyal and part of a vibrant community whose hobby is centred on miniature figures. While it isn’t entirely immune from any economic downturn and the negative effects that might have on consumer spending, there is a sense that Games Workshop is currently enjoying a sweet spot whereby it is offering products which appeal to its end-market and in an engaging way. The community spirit of its offering, particularly the way staff interacts with customers in-store, gives it an edge over mainstream retailers." .
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.
robinnicolson: The share price action seems to suggest that a Brexit agreement trumps any benefit our company gains from sterling weakness against the dollar.
nod1: Martin, are you anticipating it will appreciate in value more than a GAW share? Or, are you looking for a new toy?
1squintyflinty: wonder why the share price is easing after Spectaculer results.
nod: Last October GAW used the innocuous phrase "Some Uncertainties". This was picked up and highlighted (exaggerated) by most of the financial pages (much to my annoyance at the time). The share price fell quite sharply in October and then bounced along sideways for five months before the start of the next up-wave. I can't predict future patterns or where the share price will be in three months, but bearish periods are normal.
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.
robinnicolson: Nod, I too subscribed to 'Analyst' (and its later iterations) from excellent publication. Their writing introduced me to several businesses that I still hold today...GAW, HL, ROR, RWS, VCT. I digitally scanned most of their general investment articles (which are timeless) and also several stock specific ones. I just had a glance at the earliest 'Analyst' article I have on Games Workshop, dated February 1997. The share price then was £6.26 and it was on a forward P/E of 26.7. The analyst wrote: "Games Workshop is an unlikely success story but one which keeps on growing...the company has what all good growth retailers possess, a strongly branded formula and an attractive concept capable of being replicated across a wide geographical area." Despite a hiccup or two, management have been basically executing the same business plan over the intervening twenty two years, the biggest change being the online presence.
nod: Motley Fool Royston Wild | Monday, 24th June, 2019 I’m also considering loading up on some Games Workshop Group (LSE: GAW) shares before numbers for the fiscal year ended May are disclosed. It really has been a quarter to remember for the FTSE 250 firm, a leading light in the field of miniature wargaming. Its share price is up by a staggering 55% in the second quarter thus far, helped by the release of another solid update in early June in which it declared that sales and profits kept on chugging higher — and across all channels, too — since it informed the market a couple of months earlier. Was anyone expecting anything different, though? I’ve lauded Games Workshop’s dominant position in a specialised retail segment, and one which commands fiercely-loyal legions of fans the world over, giving it some excellent protection during tough economic conditions. The fantasy giant is expanding its global footprint at a rate of knots, unsurprisingly, setting it up for some serious profits growth in the years ahead too. For the moment, Games Workshop’s expected to print a 6% earnings rise in fiscal 2020 and to raise dividends again, resulting in an inflation-stripping 3.2% yield. I don’t care about its high forward P/E ratio of 24.6 times. In my mind, it’s a brilliant long-term income play to snap up today. Full read:
