Default Change Gamesworkshop to how you see fit

According to some research I did (which is likely incorrect) the current share price of GW stock is 382.5 in English pence (that's what I'm guessing, as they put 382.5p instead of 38.25 or something that made more sense), which is 38.25 (pounds) which translates to roughly $83.40 CA or $67 US. This means that if everyone on the B&C bought a share, that would be 18090 shares. Now I don't know how many shares GW actually has on the market, but keep in mind we don't need a majority in order to propose things as shareholders.

Now obviously, not everyone here will be able to contribute enough to buy a whole share, but I think if we pool some $ from people's paypals and etc. we'll come up with quite a bit. We could even involve members from other forums and such.

Anyway, some issues came up with it, one of which was that GW stock is not traded publicly on eTrade or any other easily accessible means of buying shares. It also occured to me than many of us on these forums that, while we'd love to have a say in GW and own a piece of the company, are not business-minded and therefore would not know how to make their opinions known etc. Therefore I propose that we take all this money we pool and entrust it to someone trustworthy and financially competent (I'm thinking mods, something like that) who could put all this money into purchasing howevermany shares we can and relating our wishes to GW (because they'd be a large stockholder instead of lots of us having a couple shares).

Am I bona-fide insane or could this work? Someone please check my numbers and evaluate my mental conditon.

I'm not going to tell the mods they can close this one down if it gets out of hand because they don't need my permission to do it. This part is just so you know I am aware of the rules and of the mods abilities.

Anyway, fire away.

I thought this was a good idea what do you guys think?

yes but you would need alot of shares for that and for a lot of shares you will need a lot of money, which would be a porblem for people like me, who already gave all there money to GW for an over priced box of SM's :P

When a company goes pubnlic, it sells a heck of a lot of shares. I'm talking hundreds of thousands at least. Although investing in GW shares may be a good move money wise, it's really not going to get you any influence. 15000 or so people buying one share each will have very little effect other than to drive the price up.

This is going to be clumped in with all the other GW and money threads.

The fact of the matter is, that if you own shares you want the company to make MORE money, not less!

Unless we're all willing to go the extra mile for the Greater Good () of the wargamer community, there's very little point to even trying something like that.
