nod: Motley Fool If you’re looking for a dividend stock with more exciting growth potential, Games Workshop Group (LSE: GAW) might be of interest. Shares in the FTSE 250 war gaming specialist have tripled over the last two years, as management has kept costs down and benefited from a surge in interest in the firm’s Warhammer games. The shares are up by another 11% as I write, after the company confirmed that strong trading seen earlier in the year has continued. Full-year pre-tax profit is now expected to be about £80m, comfortably ahead of analysts’ estimates of around £70m. Today’s earnings upgrade means that Games Workshop’s profits are now expected to rise by about 7% this year, compared to previous forecasts for a 7% fall. Refreshingly honest dividends Games Workshop chief executive Kevin Rountree isn’t your standard corporate boss. His statements are short, direct and avoid the PR waffle that most companies prefer. This straightforward approach also extends to the company’s dividend policy, which is to distribute “truly surplus cash” to shareholders. Most companies used adjusted earnings — an artificial, non-cash measure — to calculate their dividend payouts. By contrast, Games Workshop simply returns spare cash it doesn’t need. Thanks to a 30%+ operating profit margin and a debt-free balance sheet, this business generates quite a lot of spare cash. Today’s statement confirms a final 35p per share dividend for this year. This will take the total payout for 2018/19 to 155p per share. At the last-seen share price of 3,690p, that gives the stock a dividend yield of 4.2%. I’d expect a similar payout during the year ahead. In my view, the group’s cash-backed yield and continued growth mean this stock remains a compelling buy-and-hold investment.
robinnicolson: Games Workshop is one of the 2019 shares picked by the Sunday Times Business team: "Heroes such as Grombrindal, Aenarion and Tancred d'Quenelles are better known among bedroom-bound teenage boys than investors, but characters from the hit fantasy game Warhammer have powered one of the best performers in a year of woe for the retail sector. Games Workshop, the FTSE 250 retailer that launched the medieval-inspired tabletop miniatures game, has defied the gloom that is engulfing the rest of the high street with its niche offering and loyal fan base who painstakingly paint the metal and plastic models. It closed up 15.2% over the year at £29.20. Crucially, as uncertainty about Brexit continues, Britain accounted for less than 30% of the Nottingham-based retailer's £220m sales last year, with growth particularly strong in North America, Germany and Asia. Some three decades after it was launched, sales of Warhammer starter packs continue to grow and new adherents are still getting involved. Pre-tax profits nearly doubled to £74.5m last year after the launch of the eighth edition of space-age Warhammer 40,000. Plus, as the company owns the intellectual property behind the wildly successful franchise, it is looking at branching out from the tabletops and into other markets - such as animation and live-action - as alternative revenue streams. Games Workshop was the best performing FTSE stock in 2017, and largely kept up its good run this year. Despite that, there is still room to grow. The share price briefly touched £40 in September, before the company spooked investors with a vague update warning of 'market uncertainties' weeks later. However, it has recovered, forecasting half year results in line with expectations at the start of the month, and rewarded investors with another 30p dividend, on top of 126p they received in June. I am backing it to reward investors - and gamers - again." Incidentally, the average loss for the Sunday Times 2018 Portfolio of 9 shares was -20.1%....
rhomboid: Hi Nod I think you need to distinguish between sentiment towards GAW as reflected in the share price...& actual GAW trading results which is all we care about in the long run. The latter is IMO almost wholly unaffected by ‘high st woes’ other than being able to reduce shop lease costs over time..& relocate to the best locations near public transportation hubs etc at far lower on balance high st decline/shift to experiential usages is a significant tailwind imo
robinnicolson: I've been slightly surprised by the recent weakness in the share price, GAW declining even more than the market. Presumably there has has been an element of profit taking. However the business should benefit from the devaluation of the pound.
nod: At today's share price of 3170 and PH's EPS forecast of 168.5 we are currently on a PER of less than 19. In a press article last week it said our peers are on a PER of around 22. So, a 16% rise from 3170 would take us level with our peers. Now, Peel Hunt has always been conservative and underestimated the growth in GAW. I also wonder if PH have mentioned currency exchange in their note to clients. GBP would temporarily benefit from a Brexit deal but any deal has to get through Parliament yet. With Conservatives so divided that may be a hurdle too high. Over a year I would favour the USD to strengthen against GBP.
nod: The press is so full of "fake news". They all earn their money today from paid adverts on their web sites and this necessitates sensational headlines to get clicks onto their web sites. It's all about the clicks.As mentioned, GAW gave the same words of caution on 25 July 2017 and the share price spiked upwards."However, the Board remains aware that there is some uncertainty in the trading periods ahead for the rest of the 2017/18 financial year. A further update will be given as appropriate."
robinnicolson: According to The Times, yesterday's 6.7% share price decline in GAW was due to "Investor jitters after recent placing"...
nod: Compared with other boards that have 50+ posts a day and the share price moves little, this is a very quiet board. I suppose everyone else is too embarrassed to admit to being invested in toy soldiers. Coming up next I believe will be the dividend. GAW doesn't do predictable things on predictable dates, so it's best to give a very wide window on dates. Last year divis were June 20p and Sept 35p This year we had June 35p ... so I'm expecting a bonanza of 45p in early September. Any thoughts?
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:
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. 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.
