Interesting. Fairly sure an investment firm will be looking at this strictly in terms of maintaining dividend though, seriously doubt there'd be anything fundamentally new in terms of ideas. And as a holder, i'm hardly likely to complain at a maintained dividend, but as I mentioned before, I see the Hobbit as a 2-3 year boost at best, exactly as company went through in early 2000's. Afterwards there was a significant restructuring required as they overreached themselves in terms of store expansion. So, wait and see I suppose. But if it hits £9 I'm selling :)
Buy Out ?
I read on the company site that on 9th May notiofication was given, by a Cayman Island company Nomad Investment Partners, of a 16% holding. jim30 it would appear you are correct. COMPANY generates good profits are the short/mid term prospects, with the Hobbits, look interesting. Perhaps the new guys have a better vision for GAW !

I follow this stock and also play GW games. One interesting thing is the number of fans who discuss the company and its dealings on fan sites. there is growing speculation on various sites that the company is setting itself up to be bought out by another company or investor. There is nothing concrete about this, but many of the firms decisions in the last year seems to point to trying to eke out the last possible penny of profitability. This includes more licencing out of IP, extremely high price rises and reducing production of older ranges (some very popular old games have been deleted in their entirety). That said, there is a sign that unit sales are falling year on year as prices prove ever steeper. At the same time competition is growing, and the company appears to have no real vision for what it wishes to acheive beyond paying Tom Kirby and other directors a large dividend every year.

I have also been looking around for a reason, but so far I have not sound anything substantial. It could be that the high divi looks like a safe(er) haven than other shares.

recent price rise
anyone got any ideas as to cause? it had been sitting around the 630-660 range for a long while, surprised at this growth spurt.
