love2: Nope. If you have truly been a long term holder you'll know they have rewarded staff consistently. They've also consistently paid back surplus cash to shareholders in dividends. Yes they've paid more to staff this year than last. But they've also paid way more in dividends to shareholders. The figures and growth justify the dividend, and its the hard work of the employees that have made the company so profitable. They are growing and expanding into new markets - both geographically and in terms of the markets within those territories. To keep hold of their staff and keep them well motivated those rewards are to me money well spent. GAW has never been like other companies and doesn't do things in tge ways other major companies do...including 2000+% returns in the last 5 years.They haven't lost their way. They state a compelling that has, is and will continue to serve them well
sogoesit: I find it difficult to put a price view on this share. I watched it for years until I first entered, always thinking it was "expensive". But it continually trades at a premium so the returns keep coming and its one of my best performers. Having entered I now treat it like a "piggy bank"; surplus cash goes in every few months and I forget about it. Other similar stocks are SPX and HLMA. HLMA has always had a premium rating... another one I have watched for years and done nothing about!! Last year's June-to-June share price trend growth rate was about 50%. Guessing, on the cautious side I would put a target of £150 one year forward. (Analysts have one year targets of £143 - high, £124.5 - low and a median of £129.5)
cambst: I wonder what the general view on a 12-month price target for GAW is, among long-term holders? Don't intend to sell, I'm in for the long haul or until the fundamentals chage, but I would be interested in any views. Myself, I'm hoping to see the price eventually stabilise and hold on above the (circa) £120 ceiling.
nod: Warhammer+ is just over 5 weeks until launch day. I expect this to develop into a key platform for GAW to present new themes to its customers. It does this well by using short YouTube videos, which today has nearly half a million subscribers. If only a half of these fans subscribe to Warhammer+ that would equate to GBP 12 million in new revenue... Looking further ahead ... The timing of Warhammer+ looks perfect for showing off new GAW products and rules based around the Amazon Tolkien Series. Pre-release information via Warhammer+ would steer more customers to subscribe.
nod: Simply Wall St did a DCF number crunch and reckons GAW is 23% below its share price. Which is good for long-term holders. Looking at the forecast numbers, I think GAW will smash these forecasts in 2022 and 23 because of the Amazon Tolkien Series. As I've mentioned before, its not only the Amazon releases that will sell ... it will significantly boost sales of the old LOTR and Hobbit models plus, and from my experience, it will boost 40K sales. In the early 2000, thousands of new recruits around the globe were introduced to GW via the LOTR movies and GW models. Many of them soon went on to play 40K which they saw as a more mature option (the older guys played 40K).
nod: If you are wanting to trade GAW I would suggest selling just before a results announcement. After 6-Nov FY results the share price fell to 9215. It then bounced up to 11730. After the Interim announcement on 12-Jan it has taken another dive. I notice Sharecast has four brokers on GAW all four with Strong Buy.
1rcl: hxxps:// 'Tabletop games' is the leading fund-raising category on Kickstarter: "2020 was again a record year for Tabletop Games on Kickstarter. They represent nearly a third of all the money raised on Kickstarter that year." In the linked article, if you look at the tabletop game projects per year (funded), it's close to a straight line increase since 2011. I don't read too much into this in isolation - but the data is supportive of the idea that the broader tabletop gaming genre (of which GAW globally dominates its sub-genre) is in a long-running growth trend and not a Covid one-off. IMO, many investors (particularly institutional) still struggle to appreciate this genre/sub-genre and the quality/growth opportunity that GAW offers (GAW being one of the very few, publicly investable plays in this niche worldwide). I appreciate that may sound odd given the large increase in GAW's share price over the past few years - but I think the company's performance and prospects have accelerated significantly quicker.
sogoesit: More from Chronic Investor this weekend in Companies Comment: "Games Workshop chases scale Undeterred by Covid-19, the games maker is pursuing international growth. * Loyal fanbase and new game launch support sales * Solid performance in North America and more factory openings point to greater scale The nerds have conquered again. Games Workshop’s (GAW) operating profit grew by more than half to £92m in the six months ended in November, as the wargames maker proved once more that its fans are hooked on its fantasy lore. Or perhaps it is the fumes from the paint. Either way, hobbyists eagerly greeted the release of the latest version of Warhammer 40,000 in the period, which management said was its most successful launch to date. GAW:LSE Games Workshop Group PLC 1mth Today change -5.22%Price (GBP) 10,710.00 This unwavering passion for miniature orks, and other such fantastical creatures, is the company’s lifeblood. And management is harnessing its energy: the new range’s ‘IndomitusR17; box for example was designed to reward existing customers, and sold out extremely quickly. Fans spent more time with the brand online, as the ‘warhammer-community’ website grew to an enormous 4.7m users, and customer sessions and pageviews grew. Focus on engagement evidently pays off. Sales have been so strong that the company said that its ‘out of stocks’ are currently running higher than it would like. Sales to independent retailers grew by a third, with the net number of trade outlets increasing by around 200 accounts to surpass the 5,000 mark. But the biggest growth, unsurprisingly, was in online channels where revenues surged by 87 per cent. Management did note, however, that the user experience for its website still needs to be improved, with a greater focus on personalised content and ease of navigation. Its bricks and mortar stores did not perform so well, hurt by coronavirus restrictions - although the company noted that it was in the process of cancelling its access to the UK’s business rates retail discount scheme. It reiterated its commitment to physical shops, describing retail as “paramountR21; and the best place for the customer to start their journey with the hobby - which goes some way in explaining why the company opened two stores in new locations in the period. Still, if current sales trends continue for the rest of the year, management estimated that around 50 stores out of 529 would not break even. Overall, gross margin moved up an impressive 6 percentage points to 75 per cent, credited to increasing volumes. This was no doubt helped by its focus on manufacturing, with output up by almost a third: the Warhammer 40,000 launch alone broke records for factory production volumes, in what management described as a “step change” in unit sales. Developing its manufacturing capacity scale remains a key focus for management, who are already overseeing the redesign of one of its factories in the UK and who have secured more adjacent land in Nottingham to open up “future options”. This push for greater scale is already bearing fruit: sales in North America performed particularly well, where revenues generated by third-party retailers grew by almost a third to £45m, accounting for two-fifths of the trade division’s total. Keen engagement, robust revenues and growing scale make for an attractive combination. It is hardly surprising then that Games Workshop was able to pay £1.3m to its staff in December, as well as a total £5m bonus to all of its employees. And shareholders have not missed out: management dished out £26m in dividends, and still finished the period with £96.5m worth of net cash (excluding lease liabilities), compared to £53m at the same point last year. Games Workshop is no doubt a high quality operation, with a winning focus on product, engagement and scale. This means that investors will likely struggle to find a bargain entry point. But the market hype that has followed the stock meant that shares slipped 9 per cent on the day of the results. With a still demanding price to earnings ratio of 36, the shares do not seem as expensive as usual. Buy.

1rcl: The Buffettology Fund December update is now out. In it KAL confirms that, after being a forced seller of GAW due to exceeding 10% of fund NAV, the GAW price pullback meant that he could (and did) buy back some of the GAW shares that he had been forced to sell.
1rcl: TicTac - I believe FTSE100 automatic entry position (position #90) is currently ~£4.8bn, requiring a GAW share price of ~£146.50. The recent FTSE100 recovery has, of course, made reaching the target that much harder. But I agree it does feel more a matter of when rather than if. IMO, very few businesses have such a strong set of characteristics - globally growing (with far more runway), durable, high margin, high moat, highly cash generative, etc.
