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?

Tempted to exit GAW
Does anybody have any good reason to remain holding this share, excl the Dividend which will have pressure put on it because of poor results and adverse exchange rates?

A few moves here today, does this mean that people are getting confidence that the dividend is more sustainable?

http://investor.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/2013-14-Press-statement-final-website.pdf reading this i feel they have their head in the sand, further more they dont appear to acknowledge the competition, yes they are the only people who make their branded items, however a portion of their community is made up of people who like strategy tabletop games and will jump ship if another producer has a better game. with that in mind both Privateer Press and Fantasy Flight have been gaining market share. then we have people who will play the game but by models either from the 2nd hand market or go to companies who make similar looking models and in some cases better quality or more unique looking figures. Kickstarter has funded a large amount of miniatures games over the last year and while they may not last, they buzz created by these launches could be drawing attention away from Games Workshop. One company Mantic have been quiet successfully using kickstarter for their miniature games, acting almost as a pre-order system which could minimise losses by gauging the appeal of the product before they go into full production. Hi Fagen39, while i agree with everything else youve posted, in defence of GamesWorkshop they do produce e-books both for their novels and rules of the game for a variety of operating systems, however they seem quiet expensive. Oldgasbag yes in the store they have cut back on their IP to only 3 ranges of which Lord of the Rings seems to be slowly falling away in popularity. however they licences out to fantasyflight the rights to produce roleplay books and boardgames. i wonder what the future holds.
