For the price to have sunk so much there must be a sizeable number of shares held by those who think this price is acceptable to them. However, they do not appear to be the major shareholders whose holdings have not changed in the last few months. So who are they? Small shareholders who have taken fright at the prospect of Corbyn? There seem to be a lot of shares in play. As for whether or not to deal in FCRM at this price, it's important to avoid the sunk cost fallacy. If buying FCRM at this price is the best use of your cash amidst the many options available, fine. Just avoid trying to "save" your FCRM holding by averaging down.

Or it could be now you have people coming in for a quick punt looking to make a short term gain. That would be my plan having made a moderate loss, and people planning to get back to break even. Probably a silly way to try and make money but I can see the temptation.

I sold out of FCRM in the low 60s when trend broke. Have no idea why it's halved in price since but all that matters is the big boys haven't supported the price since. Maybe we will find out in due course why, maybe not

PE ratios have historically been shown to be a very poor indicator of future share peformance. I haven't look at a shares ratio in years. People believe buying a low PE company is a bargain and avoid higher PE ratio shares. In each case there are many examples where they have gotten it horribly wrong

After Fridays fall P/e now just 6 Taken from https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/closer-look-fulcrum-utility-services-074238474.html One of the best investments we can make is in our own knowledge and skill set. With that in mind, this article will work through how we can use Return On Equity (ROE) to better understand a business. We'll use ROE to examine Fulcrum Utility Services Limited (LON:FCRM), by way of a worked example. Over the last twelve months Fulcrum Utility Services has recorded a ROE of 19%. Another way to think of that is that for every £1 worth of equity in the company, it was able to earn £0.19. Want to participate in a short research study? Help shape the future of investing tools and you could win a $250 gift card! View our latest analysis for Fulcrum Utility Services How Do I Calculate ROE? The formula for ROE is: Return on Equity = Net Profit ÷ Shareholders' Equity Or for Fulcrum Utility Services: 19% = UK£7.8m ÷ UK£40m (Based on the trailing twelve months to September 2018.) It's easy to understand the 'net profit' part of that equation, but 'shareholders' equity' requires further explanation. It is all earnings retained by the company, plus any capital paid in by shareholders. You can calculate shareholders' equity by subtracting the company's total liabilities from its total assets. What Does ROE Signify? Return on Equity measures a company's profitability against the profit it has kept for the business (plus any capital injections). The 'return' is the amount earned after tax over the last twelve months. That means that the higher the ROE, the more profitable the company is. So, all else equal, investors should like a high ROE. Clearly, then, one can use ROE to compare different companies. Does Fulcrum Utility Services Have A Good Return On Equity? By comparing a company's ROE with its industry average, we can get a quick measure of how good it is. The limitation of this approach is that some companies are quite different from others, even within the same industry classification. Pleasingly, Fulcrum Utility Services has a superior ROE than the average (8.3%) company in the Gas Utilities industry. That's what I like to see. In my book, a high ROE almost always warrants a closer look. For example, I often check if insiders have been buying shares . How Does Debt Impact Return On Equity? Most companies need money -- from somewhere -- to grow their profits. The cash for investment can come from prior year profits (retained earnings), issuing new shares, or borrowing. In the first and second cases, the ROE will reflect this use of cash for investment in the business. In the latter case, the debt required for growth will boost returns, but will not impact the shareholders' equity. That will make the ROE look better than if no debt was used. Fulcrum Utility Services's Debt And Its 19% ROE Shareholders will be pleased to learn that Fulcrum Utility Services has not one iota of net debt! Its solid ROE indicates a good business, especially when you consider it is not using leverage. After all, with cash on the balance sheet, a company has a lot more optionality in good times and bad. But It's Just One Metric Return on equity is one way we can compare the business quality of different companies. A company that can achieve a high return on equity without debt could be considered a high quality business. If two companies have the same ROE, then I would generally prefer the one with less debt.

I think there must be concerns over the quality of earnings here. Balance sheet and cash flow raises quality of earnings qs IMO with low free cash generation, high working capital

Glad I decided to take a loss the day before. Saved myself a few hundred quid. I guess it's now wait and see if it's going down further and working out whether it is worth buying back in.
