I am still in, but I do agree with Jarcon. I have made enough out of this share over the years to keep it for the dividend for the next few years and see if they get their future strategy act together e.g. advertise, tie up with retailers for space in larger stores. a concession store would be cheaper and supermarkets are crying out for interactive ways to use their stores. 3D printing tie up, books on Kindle store at an accessable price, more online games, film tie ups even if animated (fans love this stuff attached to the games, make it bigger). Accessability is the key to keeping this alive.

sold out yesterday
sold my (admittedly tiny) hold of these shares yesterday after looking at the background stuff over the weekend. While the div is excellent (and I expect it to maintain a few years yet) the continued failure of GW to actually market/advertise their products is a sign that they're heading for a slow decline (entirely IMO of course) Couple that with the fact that they've recently pulled one of their two core ranges (to be replaced by something in the next few weeks admittedly, but where's the fanfare? Again, no advertising) And that they're rebranding all their stores (from Games Workshop to Warhammer - again, no advertising) and I think the long term prospects aren't that rosy. As I said, I expect the divi to continue to maintain in this price range for a few years yet, but I think long term it's not worth it for my (small) holding. GLA to those who stay in, and I hope I'm proved wrong, and who knows? If I am wrong I may be back in here in a year or two while eating a large slice of humble pie.

Thanks for the reply

This share generally jumps around 10% with no news. The next set of results are likely to be relatively weak due to negative exchange rate impacts vs the £, but as long as the divi is still supported this share should not move too much overall. It would be good to see a more modern BOD come in as longer term I feel there is decline risk in this share. I am still holding at this point as the divi is good, but am nervous.

Why the rise?
I welcome the rise today, as have 4000 shares here, but am not aware of any news out there to indicate why the jump? Any ideas anyone?
