  19. What’s next for the Games Workshop (GAW) share price? (03/08/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Games Workshop (LSE:GAW) share price has been on a roll recently. Despite the pandemic forcing its stores to close, the FTSE 250 company still managed to deliver a much better performance than in the last year. As a result, the stock is up by over 70% since the start of 2020 (and almost 27% year-on-year), despite its recent tumble. But can it continue growing from here? And should I be adding this business to my portfolio? Let’s take a look. The Games Workshop (GAW) share price vs Covid-19 Games Workshop is the business behind the Warhammer franchise. It sells miniature figurines that can be used to play both a fantasy and science fiction variant of its tabletop game. The intellectual property has also been licensed to various game development studios that introduced another revenue stream through royalties. Like many other non-essential retailers, Games Workshop was forced to close its doors to customers last year due to lockdown restrictions. And initially, this sent the GAW share price plummeting by approximately 40%. But as it turns out, with everyone being stuck at home, playing Warhammer was a popular way to pass the time. So, many individuals turned to the company’s online store to buy the units they needed. Looking at the latest annual report, online sales increased from 19% to 25% of overall revenue. Meanwhile, its retail store income shrank from 29% to 20%. That’s hardly surprising given the retail environment at the time. The rest of its gross income came from its 5,400 independent retailers (many of which also have an online shopping option) and royalties from video game licenses. In total, revenue for the last 12 months reached £353.2m. That’s 31% higher than a year ago and 38% higher than pre-pandemic levels. So, I’m not surprised to see the GAW share price surging. What’s next for this business? Games Workshop is currently in the process of launching its new Warhammer+ service. It’s a monthly subscription that allows members to access animated, painting, gaming, and lore shows. In addition, subscribers receive exclusive miniatures that cannot be purchased directly. According to the management team, this newly proposed service saw some incredibly positive feedback when initially previewed to the community. And I must admit that the prospect of introducing a recurring revenue stream beyond royalties sounds quite promising. However, it is too soon to tell whether this venture will be a financial success. Warhammer+, upcoming video game titles, and a new series of figurines have substantially raised investors’ expectations. This is why the GAW share price has been such a stellar performer recently. Unfortunately, that also means it’s now trading at quite a lofty premium. Based on today’s share price, the FTSE 250 stock is trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of around 30. Needless to say, if it fails to deliver the returns investors are expecting, the GAW share price could once again take a significant tumble. The bottom line There remains some element of uncertainty surrounding Games Workshop’s future growth potential. However, I think the business is heading in the right direction. With its retail stores now reopening and a wave of new content being released, I believe the GAW share price can climb higher over the long term. Therefore, I am considering adding this business to my portfolio today. The post What’s next for the Games Workshop (GAW) share price? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  29. Gender credit gap: women pay £17k more to borrow over lifetime (17/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    It’s well documented that on average, women generally earn less than men. But did you know that women also typically pay more total interest than men when borrowing? New research from credit management platform Credit Karma has revealed a gender credit gap with women paying thousands of pounds more to borrow over their lifetime.  [top_pitch] What is the gender credit gap and how big is it? According to Credit Karma, women could end up paying close to £17,000 more than men over their lifetime when they borrow money. That is mainly because of lower credit scores, which means that women have to pay more in interest for a wide variety of financial products, including credit cards, mortgages, and unsecured loans. Credit Karma found that women have lower credit scores on average than men (652 vs 705). In addition, a larger percentage of women (19.5%) have a credit score below 550 than men (11.5%). Basically, women are more likely to fall into the subprime category for lenders, which makes accessing financial products more difficult and expensive for them. Credit Karma worked out how much interest consumers would need to pay on financial products like mortgages and credits based on their credit scores and discovered that women would have to pay £152,403 while men would have to pay £135,490. That’s a difference of 16,913! Why do women have lower credit scores? Credit Karma says that the difference in credit scores between men and women is primarily driven by women’s more conservative financial behaviour, relationship dynamics on who sorts the bills and borrowing preferences. In regards to relationship dynamics, for example, nearly a third (31%) of women have some or all of their financial agreements in their partner’s name. The ultimate result of this is that it limits women’s exposure to credit. It leaves them with little or no credit rating should the relationship end. The research also suggests that women are less likely to access financial products that would positively impact their credit score, including personal loans and mortgages. Instead, they are more likely to turn to unregulated forms of borrowing such as buy now, pay later that often have no positive credit score impact. What’s perhaps even more concerning is that the pandemic could make things worse for women. More women than men have been laid off or furloughed during the pandemic (20% vs 14%). In addition, more women than men have seen their income diminish over the last 12 months (32% vs 30%). [middle_pitch] How can we solve the gender credit gap? Credit Karma encourages women to take a more hands-on approach to managing money. This comes after it was discovered that more women (41%) than men (35%) do not know their credit score. Knowing your credit score allows you to create a plan for improving it. This can lower your borrowing costs in the long run. Here are a few useful tips for improving your credit score:  Pay your bills on time, including utilities. This will help you avoid late charges and fees being reported to credit bureaus. Remember that even one late payment can bring down your credit score as it stays on your report for years. Ensure you have some bills or lines of credit in your name (not your partner’s or your parents’ names). Without sources of credit, lenders don’t have any way of assessing your creditworthiness. Check your credit score and credit report regularly and dispute inaccuracies. You are entitled to a free annual credit report from each of the three major credit reference agencies in the UK (Experian, TransUnion and Equifax). Get on the electoral register. This proves who you are as well as where you live. It might be easier to get approval for credit if you are on the register. Ensure that you are at least using some credit every month and paying it off. This can help show that you are a responsible money manager and improve your standing with lenders.

  33. 4 Startup funding opportunities for women (13/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Women are making headway in the corporate world and breaking that proverbial glass ceiling. That doesn’t stop the allure of getting out there and doing your own thing. But let’s face it: startups require money and support. There are several startup funding opportunities for women. Let’s take a look. [top_pitch] A startup isn’t necessarily a small business This statement might seem a little confusing, but bear with us. Starting a small business is considered a startup; however, more accurately, it is referred to as a small business startup.  Sure enough, a startup can be a small business, but they’re not limited to small businesses. In fact, in business terms, a startup is a business with the potential to reach a large target market within a small space of time. With that in mind, let’s take a look at four startup funding opportunities for women. 1. Making use of incubators and accelerators Incubator startups form part of a collaborative network that has the sole purpose of allowing a startup to flourish. Startups need access to training, funding, and ongoing best practices which can be hard to access. This is true for niche industries. However, more and more incubator programmes are popping up across various industries. These include: Farm491 for the agriculture sector Centre for Fashion Enterprise for the fashion industry On the other hand, an accelerator programme is investment-oriented and looks at the fastest way to grow a business. There are several seed and angel investors in the UK that assist up-and-comers. Blooming Founders and AccelerateHER are two such organisations. [middle_pitch] 2. Programmes that provide startup funding opportunities for women There are a number of groups and organisations that provide funding and support for women-owned startups. Narrowing it down by industry, the type of business, or special initiatives will make a world of difference. This way, it’s easy to find opportunities that match your niche and provide the support you actually need. The Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology offers two awards that provide cash grants for initiatives within the technology field. Cash grants range from £1,000 to £50,000. The Female Founders Fund is another institute with the sole purpose of creating startup funding opportunities for women. Furthermore, it focuses on internet-based businesses and eCommerce sites. However, it requires an equity stake in the business. 3. Franchising opportunities for women Female Franchise is a great starting block for women looking to get into a franchise. It provides educational support for women who want to start low-cost businesses. Whichfranchise.com is not specifically geared towards female business owners. However, it has an entire page dedicated to support for female franchise owners. Furthermore, it provides helpful links, upcoming networking opportunities and links to potential funders. 4. Other support areas for women in startups  Education and networking are two components that will help women in startup businesses to scale. Organisations such as The Businesswoman’s Network and Women in Business Network (WIBN) arrange networking opportunities to allow like-minded women to support each other’s business. Furthermore, these events have educational slots and funding rounds. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  35. This UK share is up 1,900% in 5 years: why I’d still buy it today (14/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    As a lover of cheap stocks, I don’t often find UK shares that have risen by 1,900% in five years and are still tempting me to buy. I often rule out such big winners as too expensive. But investing in shares with strong momentum — rising earnings and share prices — can be a successful strategy, as long as the underlying business is of good quality. A long-term winner? The stock I’ve been looking at is wargaming specialist Games Workshop (LSE: GAW). Shareholders who’ve held this popular UK share for five years have seen the value of their stock rise by a staggering 1,940%. That’s equivalent to an average annual gain of 83% for five years. Games Workshop’s share price growth has slowed slightly over the last year, which has seen the stock rise by about 50%. But the business is still performing well, despite the disruption caused by the pandemic. The Warhammer hobby appears to have attracted an army of new followers keen to build and paint models and take part in games. Sales rose by 26% to £187m during the six months to 29 November, while pre-tax profit rose by 6% to £92m. In addition to strong sales of the company’s miniature figures, profits are being boosted by royalties generated from licensing the group’s assets for use in media such as video games and television. Royalties have totalled around £15m over the last 12 months. This is almost pure profit — the company says there’s little cost involved in these licensing deals. Solid foundations As far as I can see, the big risk facing Games Workshop is that interest in Warhammer could stagnate or even decline. So far there’s no sign of this, but future trends are hard to predict. Another risk is that something might go wrong with the business itself. Again, I can’t see any sign of this at the moment. Games Workshop has high profit margins and generates lots of surplus cash. The group’s expansion seems to have been well handled, without operational issues. CEO Kevin Rountree also takes a conservative approach to financing the business. Games Workshop has no debt and only makes dividend payments using “truly surplus cash”. I’d still buy this UK share Games Workshop shares currently trade on 30 times 2020–21 forecast earnings, falling to 28 times earnings for 2021–22. That’s more than I’d usually pay for a share. But in this case, I think it’s reasonable. After all, Games Workshop has generated a profit margin of 40% and earnings growth of 50% over the last year. A common feature of the best momentum stocks is that they appear fully priced at first, but still have further to rise. I think Games Workshop could be an example of this. Broker forecasts suggest earnings growth will slow to 10% during the 2021–22 financial year. Although that’s a big drop from the rate seen over the last year, it shows that the company is expected to hold onto the gains achieved during the pandemic. It’s worth noting that forecasts can change based on future developments, and should not be relied on. That matches up with my impression that Warhammer enthusiasts are loyal customers. I think this business could keep growing. I’d be happy to buy Games Workshop today. FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?

  40. Games Workshop’s share price is up 1,900% in five years. Should I buy the stock now? (12/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Games Workshop (LSE: GAW) has been one of the best performing stocks on the London Stock Exchange in recent years. Over the last two years, its share price has risen about 250%. Meanwhile, over five years, the stock is up a staggering 1,900%. Is this a growth stock I should consider for my own investment portfolio, or have I missed the boat? Let’s take a look at the investment case. Games Workshop: business description Games Workshop is a British manufacturer of miniature wargames. The group is best known for its tabletop games Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Warhammer 40,000, The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game and The Hobbit Strategy Battle Game. Games Workshop began its life in the UK over 30 years ago. However, today, it has direct sales operations in the UK, the US, Australia, China and Japan, with around 70% of sales coming from outside the UK. The company’s market capitalisation is currently around £3.2bn, meaning it’s a relatively large company (by UK standards) these days. Impressive financials Its financials are certainly impressive. Take the company’s revenue growth, for example. Between FY15 and FY20, revenue rose from £119m to £270m. That represents annualised growth of just under 18%. Meanwhile net profit exploded over that period, rising from £12m to £71m. First-half results, posted in January, showed further growth. For the six months to 29 November 2020, revenue was up 26% to £186.8m while basic earnings per share increased to 226.1p from 145.9p. The company is also extremely profitable (five-year average return on equity of 57%), very cash generative, and financially strong with a robust balance sheet. All in all, this appears to be a high-quality business. Can Games Workshop’s share price keep rising? I do have some concerns about Games Workshop shares, however. One is that growth is expected to moderate next financial year (ending 31 May 2022). Analysts expect revenue growth of around 30% this year. Yet for the following year, they expect top-line growth of ‘only’ 9%. This could be upgraded, of course. However, that level of growth does seem a bit underwhelming considering that the stock currently trades on a high price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 28 and a lofty price-to-sales ratio of nine. Another concern is that regulatory filings show that late in February, Chairman Nick Donaldson’s wife sold 8,000 GAW shares (nearly £800,000 worth of stock). Before this sale, the Donaldsons owned 16,700 shares, so this sale reduced their holding significantly. This could indicate that Donaldson – who is likely to have an information advantage over the rest of us – sees the stock as fully valued at present. My view on GAW shares Overall, there’s a lot to like about Games Workshop. The company has a great growth track record and it is very profitable. That said, I think there are other stocks that are a better fit for my portfolio right now. Given that we’re in the midst of a technology revolution, I’d rather invest in a company that’s more tech-focused.

  42. 2 UK listed companies I like (18/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    For non-UK based fellow redditors, here are a couple of UK listed companies to consider. Not investment advice. I just think they look interesting. Please feel free to highlight a couple from your own country. … LON:SLP - Sylvania Platinum Actually derives most of its revenue from Rhodium these days. This company is trading on a tiny p/e - it’s just too cheap I think. £280m market cap. Net cash over $100m at end March Last quarter net profit of $40m. Operations are all based in South Africa. The company produces platinum group metals by processing the tailings of other producers. It’s lower risk than mining, but means they are reliant on their host-mines for tailings inputs. Huge margins, dividend paying. Final quarter update should be this month, with annual report in September. They will hopefully give an indication of what they will do with all that cash! … LON: GAW - Games Workshop The company that owns the Warhammer series of worlds. I used to play the table top war game as a kid, and the game is stronger than ever. Revenue has tripled since 2015. I love this company because of the richness of the IP. The worlds are enormous and they keep building up the story. That’s an incredible asset, and the company is getting better and better at monetising it. The warhammer world extends to books, computer games, and hopefully soon a tv series. On a forward p/e of around 30, it’s not cheap. If the growth can keep going, it may still be good value   submitted by   /u/LeopoldAlcocks [link]   [comments]

  45. Certification for foreign holders of Slack (WORK), and holding on for SalesForce (15/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Slack is getting bought by SalesForce. Shareholders in Slack (like me) will be given cash and SalesForce stock. I was just notified by my brokerage that this transaction (presumably the cash portion) will be treated as a dividend payment. Since I'm not an American, they also told me that I need to file a "S.302 Certification" or face 30% US withholding tax. My brokerage did not direct me to the proper form. I can't figure out what I'm supposed to use. Does anyone know? This transaction is still over a year away. Should I just sell my WORK now and avoid all these shenanigans? I assume that WORK's share price won't trade any higher than the value of the SalesForce offer.   submitted by   /u/felixfelix [link]   [comments]
