chrisatom: Ok, let's not hijack a good thread with opinions about TA, each to his own. It's all probabilities anyway, I know that this pattern/formation has a 67% chance of reaching £32 minimum, buyers and sellers move share price, not staff.

santr0: Thanks for sharing your analysis! Recently I did some research about the company as well and I managed to identify several more reasons other than rise of social media. - A massive increase in production. The number of weekly releases effectively doubled over the last few years. Nowadays we receive a new codex every couple of weeks with a wealth of new releases. - Smaller entry barrier. New starter sets are a fairly cheap way to get into the hobby. A small 1000 points army will cost only around £250 with all of the basic paints, rules and etc. - Simply better products. Both rules and models are better quality these days. We don't have top and bottom tier codexes where bottom ones had no chance against the top. Still, there are ways to get better but much better than before. - Changes of 2 man shops into 1 man shop - Softer IP policies allowed us to enjoy several great games like Total War: Warhammer 1 and 2 as well as Vermintide series. - Improved pre- and aftersale support. Now we have a lot of different videos and articles that introduce the customers to the new products and show how to work with them to get better results. There is no single reason that caused such a surge in share price. It is a myriad of small bits and pieces that management did right that ended up with a much better customer experience and more effective marketing. GW had a huge untapped potential with all of its customers that left or were not able to join the hobby. Nowadays it is a question of will GW be able to keep up with the standard that it set up.

robinnicolson: Shares magazine article: "Peel Hunt analyst Charles Hall increases his year to May 2018 sales forecast by £6m to £217m and his adjusted profit before tax estimate rises by £4m to £74m, although sales and profits will reduce to £200.2m and £58m next year due to demanding comparatives and the impact of currency." The article quotes Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell: "Ten years ago it would have seemed unimaginable that Games Workshop would end up a FTSE 250 company. Interest in tiny fantasy figures had waned following a strong period inspired by the success of the Lord of the Rings films. It battled profit warnings rather than miniature warlords." "A decade on and its share price has increased more than 12-fold and the company is sitting in the prestigious mid-cap stock market index. The business has struck a chord with a new generation of fantasy fans and is engaging with customers via multiple channels. While Warhammer figures may not be to everyone’s taste, Games Workshop has proved that it is possible to be a retail success if you know how to connect with your market and have the right products and superior service levels."

robinnicolson: The view of The Times is that the share price decline in GAW on Friday was due to "worries about consumer confidence".

bigbigdave: Richard Beddard on iii, advfn won't let me post link! Games Workshop (GAW): £23.40 The inclusion of Games Workshop (GAW) in my ISA portfolio may confound regular readers because I recently reduced the number of Games Workshop shares held in the model Share Sleuth portfolio I manage for Money Observer magazine. I decided to rebalance the portfolio after Games Workshop had grown to be its biggest holding, not because I doubted the quality of the business. As the owner of the popular Warhammer gaming and modelling franchise, I believe it, to a larger than usual extent, controls its own destiny. The biggest risk is in the share price as within a year Games Workshop has gone from being unloved to highly fancied.

cockerhoop: Richard Beddard Melt up at Games Workshop Games Workshop's half-year results, reported on 9 January, were as fantastic as they were unexpected, at least by me, only a few years ago. It earned more in the six months to November 2017 than it did in the previous financial year. That year was a record year. Games Workshop has always scored highly because it's unique, there is no other tabletop wargaming and modelling business approaching it in size, and Games Workshop controls almost every aspect of the Warhammer "hobby" it owns, from manufacturing the figurines to running the stores and publishing the books and magazines that perpetuate the lore. A few years ago, in annual reports and at the annual general meeting, I sensed the company was disinterested in promoting the gaming aspect of the hobby which acts as a gateway to the more lucrative modelling aspect. It was dismissive of customers and investors who complained it should perhaps listen to them. Games Workshop seemed introverted, focused on efficiency improvements rather than growing the hobby. Those efficiency improvements weren't a bad thing, they've contributed to a dramatic boost in profitability, but as a long-term investor I was concerned about the hobby's future. Since then, the company's confounded me by revitalising its two principal gaming systems, sponsoring a major games convention, and for the first time I remember its half-year report talks of customer-focus, and interactions on its newish Facebook pages and Warhammer Community website. The shift in one number is, perhaps, even more impressive than the 178% increase in profit for the half-year compared to the same period a year ago, and that is the rise in the share price. Since its most recent trough in June 2016, the share price has risen nearly 500%. That's why, despite a run of amazing results, Games Workshop is only tenuously in the buyzone, scoring 7 out of 10. The Decision Engine is designed to protect me from from over-enthusing about companies on high valuations, even if I admire the business.

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: http://bit.ly/2D1OnnF

nod: The trading update so far in advance of December would suggest to me that GAW is smashing its previous forecasts and furthermore doesn't think that today's share price is above valuation - otherwise they could be accused of pumping an already inflated share price - and GAW has never done that.GAW has always been ultra-conservative with its RNS and foreword statements. Like an army on the battleground, GAW prefers to surprise. So this RNS strikes me as an exceptional warning that profits are going to be huge..."TRADING STATEMENTFollowing on from the Group's update in September, sales to date have continued strongly. Given the high operational gearing of the business, any movement in sales is directly reflected in profits. Sales and profits to date therefore continue to be well above the same period in the prior year."

nod: This is not an entirely accurate write-up and is misleading in places. MF has consistently been wrong in its analysis of and prediction for GAW. As MF now predict GAW will make me fabulously rich from this point forth then I will go along with them. One important point they do get wrong is the inference that GAW has gone nowhere in 20 years. GAW has produced excellent dividends during many of these 20 years and stupendous capital growth at times. GAW is not a buy-and-go-to-sleep for 20 years. I can’t think of many companies that have been. Warren Buffet likes companies that have an unassailable moat around them and Buffet’s “Moat Test” is a key part of his investment strategy. GAW has been good at building moats, as you might expect given their business of battle strategies. http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/10/11/2-small-cap-growth-stocks-that-could-make-you-fabulously-rich/ 2 small-cap growth stocks that could make you fabulously rich Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 11th October, 2017 After years of volatility and no overall price gain in nearly 20 years, shares in Games Workshop Group (LSE: GAW) have taken off like a rocket over the last year — they’ve more than trebled in value in 12 months to 2,030p. After a gradual climb, June’s trading update ahead of full-year results inspired a spike, and since then it’s just been up and up. In the end, the year to May 2017 saw a 127% rise in pre-tax profit coupled with an 84% hike in operating cash generation. Earnings per share more than doubled to 95.1p, and the dividend was lifted by 85% to 74p per share. Chief executive Kevin Rountree described the year as a “fun and exciting” one, suggesting that “prospects for the business are good” — and at least the second part of that seems modest. Strong margins A sales boost from the fall in sterling has certainly helped, as most of the company’s sales are overseas, but I see another long-term cash cow here too. Games Workshop’s margins are high, with a very impressive gross margin of 72.4% for 2017, and it really doesn’t require a lot of capital expenditure to keep it going. And though it’s taken a long time for the share price to get moving, the company has been paying out handsome dividends for years. This year is already off to a good start, with Q1 sales and profits “well above the same period in the prior year” and the firm telling us we should be seeing expectations-busting results this year. Forecast dividends of 100p would provide a yield of 4.9% with the shares on a P/E of 15, and that looks good to me. A million by retirement Shares like these two tucked away in your SIPP give you the hope of enjoying growth and dividends for years to come after you retire, and there are more top shares out there that can do the same.
