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"...
robinnicolson: More about that PH broker note (running to catch up): FT: Peel Hunt, Games Workshop’s house broker, said it was raising year-end revenue and profit forecasts by 5 per cent and 7 per cent respectively, to £215m and £62m. The broker also increased its share price target to £32.50 “to reflect greater confidence in the long-term outlook”.
robinnicolson: Citywire: AAA-rated Ken Wotton, manager of the Livingbridge UK Multi Cap Income fund, is backing a recovery at miniature war gaming company Games Workshop. 'It is a unique business that has done brilliantly over the last couple of years,' he said. 'It has been around for quite a long time, but they had some issues with over-expansion in terms of stores around the UK probably about four or five years ago.' Since then, Wotton explains there has been a change of management. 'The current management team has really honed the business by focusing on their demographic, which is a combination of teenage and early twenties men, who are sort of discovering it for the first time, and late 40s to late 50s men, who probably discovered it 20 to 30 years ago.' Investors have responded positively to the measures that have been put in place by the new management team, with Games Workshop's share price up by 102% over the past 12 months. Wotton and AAA-rated co-manager Brendan Gulston feel particularly positive about Games Workshop's low capital expenditure. For example, its stores are typically not on the high street and tend to be 'destination stores', resulting in lower overheads. While some investors have concerns about Games Workshop's store-based model, Wotton takes a different view. 'Long-term, does this sort of thing get superseded by online? Actually it has not happened. There have been a number of years where that could have happened and it hasn't.' In fact, looking ahead the fund manager believes Games Workshop's online presence can drive the business forward. 'They have online community groups and they get a lot of feedback through the online channels about what is working and what is not,' he explains. The fund manager puts the company's strong performance down to its store rollout, particularly in the US. Wotton adds that Games Workshop has used data from its online proposition to better understand their customers before they launch a store. 'If they want to go into Germany, for example, they already know where there are people who are enthusiastic about this product because they are already engaging with it online.' This is why Wotton believes there is huge growth potential for store rollouts across different countries. 'It is not just a UK thing, it is an international community of people who are enthusiasts for the Warhammer game and therefore are prepared to pay what, to a average person, would be quite a large amount of money to buy these models,' he explained. He adds that customers are willing to spend hundreds of pounds on buying a model to paint and to use in these games. 'What they [Games Workshop] have tapped into is this international community of people who are hugely enthusiastic about the game and product,' Wotton said. The fund manager notes that there is no direct competitor anywhere near the scale of the success of the Warhammer game. 'It has been good earnings growth story. Their policy is to pay out any excess cash they generate as a dividend,' he noted. Since launch in June 2017, LF Livingbridge UK Multi Cap Income has performed strongly. Over the 12 months to the end of July, the managers have returned 16.8% versus 5.3% by the average fund in the UK equity income sector.
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?
discojames: These results look rather good to me, why is share price falling?
ramridge: net profit up 100% , eps up 95% ; market reaction share price down -8% right now. So what am I missing?
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: 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. 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.
