Finncap today commented : Fulcrum (FCRM): Converting a large market opportunity (BUY) Fulcrum has reported a strong set of FY 2017 results with adjusted EPS up 41% (our forecast 35%, as below). This progress was driven by a 4% increase in sales and operating margins rising from 12.6% to 17.7%. Cash flow remainedstrong with net cash now £12.6m. The order book is up 39% on last year supporting a continued positive outlook and we believe there is positive pressure on our forecasts. With the core utility connections business continuing to convert the sizeable market opportunity and an increasing contribution from asset ownership we reiterate our Buy recommendation. IC also commented briefly with a continued buy rec.

Just my view. Apologies, appreciate how it came across.

I was disappointed in the figures today. In the pre-close trading statement the company stated it had "performed strongly", so the slightly higher turnover figure (up by 4.4%) did not align to a strong performance. A strong performance (for me) would have double digit revenue growth. The increased profit was better as it shows they are improving margins. Perhaps the past two years are a sign of the management getting the model right, showing the profits are there. They really need to win more bids, driving growth and subsequently higher turnover and profits. I am now sitting on the sidelines to see what those with more knowledge than me (looking for newspapers and other publications), to write up their thoughts. Just now I am slightly deflated.

Amazing, such a quality co that's delivered the goods with no proactive investor constant interviews required [...]

Ironically there was not much BB chatter on this co 2-3 years ago when they were sub 10p....that's also another strong indcator, not buying into the so called top discussion leader shares

Topvest, if it's any consolation, I had 200k of these at 5p, but got impatient as a more active trader & sold them at 7p Just proved you can definitely find huge hidden gems on AIM with the right in depth research. Rather than many short term traders chasing every wave trying to catch a large wave winner

From IC last week: Investors who sent Fulcrum Utility 's (FCRM) share price down 3 per cent following the half-year results announcement were, perhaps, overly focused on the top line. Ignore the relatively flat revenue performance and this is another impressive set of numbers. The gross margin widened by 8 percentage points, helping to double pre-tax profit and providing £3.8m of net cash from operations (£0.1m in FY2016). Given the strong cash generation, management has taken the decision to adopt a formal dividend policy that aims to pay out approximately half of net profits to shareholders. Having enhanced the operational capacity of the business, management is focused on growing the top line. The period-end order book stood at £24.4m - up 12 per cent on that booked by the end of March. The increase reflected a string of contracts, including a £4m deal to install a new gas pipeline to a large food manufacturing plant in the south-west. "We have the capacity to deliver 12 of these large contracts at one time," says chief executive Martin Donnachie. But the company is not relying on this headroom for growth: rather, it is expanding its offering by applying for a licence to own and operate electrical assets in a similar way to its gas network. Annualised gas transportation income also grew to £1.5m. Broker Cenkos expects pre-tax profits of £6.4m for the year to March 2017, giving EPS of 3.4p (from £4.6m and 2.6p in FY2016). IC VIEW: The ownership of gas pipelines and meters gives Fulcrum a very secure revenue stream. Shares trading on 15 times forward earnings look good value for the growth on offer. Buy. Last IC view: Buy, 41p, 7 Jun 2016

I also bought at 8p but sold out earlier this year at 26p thinking they wouldn't increase further this year. Another wrong decision !!

Great results today. Amazing to think that I bought these for 8p less than 3 years ago. What a transformation given the expected dividend alone this year is 1.8p. Just shows what can be done when you pick the right turnaround.

Thanks for that jambo192. Sounds reassuring in the post-brexit environment.

I'm holding the rest of mine. Think the company has been turned around really well and prospects look pretty good. construction activity may slow in the short term but still a good long term play.

Quite a savage drop on the news a director has sold some shares... overdone?

Just some healthy profit taking by the looks of things. The management team have really done very well to turn this around. "Turnarounds seldom turn" has been proven incorrect in this situation which has led to the excellent share price performance. Probably more upside if they can grow the revenue on a sustainable basis and the various new business lines should definitely help.

well I also thought the results were pretty decent; very surprised at the subsequent decline in share price.

Very strong results indeed. Excellent rise in the dividend. No posts on results day. All bodes very well.

Yes all very good. Surprised revenues are in line if the £4m contract finished one month early. That's the only negative from this very positive RNS.

Totally missed the boat with this one. Was going to buy when it dipped back down to 25p. Doh!! Good luck to all those that are invested !
