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?

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 1996-2007...an 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.

nod: Motley Fool https://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2019/04/12/1-ftse-100-6-dividend-stock-id-buy-for-my-isa-today/ 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.

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 cost...so on balance high st decline/shift to experiential usages is a significant tailwind imo
