Alternative ways to invest in Games Workshop Group

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Games Workshop Group), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Games Workshop Group is a major part of the London stock exchange, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Is Games Workshop Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Games Workshop Group P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Games Workshop Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Games Workshop Group shares trade at around 24x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, Games Workshop Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the leisure industry or those of similar companies.

Games Workshop Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £195.8 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Games Workshop Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.
