Market value dips can have way more to do with the general state of confidence in said market than the performance of individual companies. Right now there is a wobble in the market that has been causing value fluctuiations accross the boards, GW is simply feeling that wobble, nothing more or less....
this is something that i had considered, too.
consistent with the rest that i had seen.
but then again, the graph shows a rather precipitous drop.
one need not doubt the leadership to see a player in a bad position.
boardgames and gaming generally are doing well.
people miss time together after two decades binging on Internets and cellies,
and many are coming together within structured spaces afforded by games.
what the warhammer universe had going for it was its universal mythos.
originally, it was a synthesis of existing and emerging popular culture and deep tradition.
this is something that is difficult to quantify, but i think that its value was under-rated by gw.
they traded it in for something less valuable.
at least that is what the people who are dropping gw stock seem to be teaching me with that diagram.
