So I missed the boat on Take Two shares and Blizzard Activision but purchased some Ubisoft shares this week following the bad results. My thinking being they will rally when Watch Dogs etc. comes to the next generation. It got me thinking if anyone else has any tips on which stocks to take a look at. I am looking for ideas where the market has under priced a share when as a gamer we know something will be bigger than expected. As an example the market seems somewhat surprised by GTA5's success!|

Lacy stock(ings) are the bestest.
How dare you, Anno 1404 is a masterpiece.

Hahaha, it is rather good.
I don't buy shares in gaming companies. You need to hope those delayed games sell better than expected.

As for Ubisoft, they make OK games. Good - rarely. Great - never
As is Rayman Legends.
How many shares are we talking about?
We are not betting the bank here! I have 35 UBI shares. I feel I may write to them about suggestions for how to improve Far Cry as I am now an owner
Who said anything about retiring?
I don't think anyone's expecting to be the next Gordon Gecko.
Dabbling in stocks part time is a mugs game. Your money is much better invested elsewhere, let someone else to the work. Unless you intend on doing it full time, a few hours a month shifting a few quid around is a waste of your time.
Unless you enjoy playing dress up in stockbrokers pinstripes of course, dabble away in that case.
Also slick your hair back and wear suspenders. That's how everyone in the finance industry dresses right?

I am not looking to retire and I am too old to play dress up!
It's a bit of fun and I am trying to out perform the crap ROR I get from the bank. That said I don't see many suggestions unfortunately.
I so far only hold Activision shares which have been fabulous.
Eyeing Sony at the moment as it's going through a little rough patch but will surely pick up again by the end of the year.
Letting someone else do the work is not what I would personally recommend.
Simply said, whatever an Investment Manager can do. You can do. What is guaranteed is that you will lose money paying fees on your portfolio if you let someone else do it. That's a guaranteed loss.
Fundamentally, it makes sense to invest and manage your own portfolio. If you are worried about risk put in a stop loss. And definitely do not ever trade on margin.
Stock picking is not a black box. Start with a virtual portfolio and follow that for a couple of months minimum to get a feel for the market as well as volatility in your preferred stocks.
