New target price from Citygroup 204p. Could indicate how far the share price could fall before it hits support level.

So the sell off is down to Citygroup Inc. analysts cut their recommendations to sell and halved their price target. Sighting "There's evidence of credit deterioration," as the reason.

28-10-18 news report; "The dismal stock market float of FCH descends into farce as it emerges staff offloaded shares at the earliest opportunity. The peer-to-peer lender, which connects small businesses in need of loans with thousands of investors, suffered one of the worst debuts in the London Stock Exchange's history when it floated earlier this month with a £1.5 billion valuation. The shares dived 23% in their first week amid a torrid time for new listings on the stock market. City sources told The Mail on Sunday that there were a 'flood of orders' to sell Funding Circle's shares on the first day of trading – from the company's own staff. While the founders agreed not to sell any more shares after the flotation for at least a year, no such restrictions were imposed on the remaining staff......"

Your quite right I was following the chart. So any comments why this has fallen to 260p today.

Fair enough. You traded for about 10% right? In at 350 and out at 385.

I didn't say they are not worth anything just not the IPO share price 440p IMO. I bought low and sold at price I felt was over valued imo.

I took a small position in FCH a couple of months ago and sold out when it reached 385p. I didn't subscribe to the original IPO, but I'm struggling to see how a company that has not made a profit yet was valued at 440p. Maybe worth another position once this has bottomed out.

My fair value for this share in the medium term is 80 pence. Someone will probably buy the company for a higher price, but I will not be interested in buying unless it goes below 50 pence.

If anyone wants to compare FC with anything, compare it with Lehmans, that's about as close as you'll get to anything worth thinking about. Except that FC's loans are continually terminating and being renewed all the time, whereas bad mortgages come to crunch all at once.

The problem with Funding Circle is that it is still making large losses in what is a pretty benign business environment. When the next economic downturn comes (and believe me, it always does), the company could run out of money amazingly quickly.

Biggest hill - if its popular with customers it will make money - thats got to be good for its earnings. I cant comment on current valuation from an investment standpoint. I just think the product and service is good.

Pb01, I was looking at Funding Circle as a potential investor, not a customer. I think Funding Circle will be popular with customers but from an investment point of view, I see the chances of failure here as incredibly high. I would be surprised if Funding Circle exists in its present form in five years time.

I run a small business and my experience of funding circle has been very positive. Far faster and more flexible than borrowing from a bank. I hope this company succeeds as UK business need this type of fast and flexible loans to grow. I was prepared to secure my loan with funding circle and had similar secured terms from the bank also. Difference is a I got a decision in 2 days with funding circle. I gave up with the bank route after 4 weeks of filling in countless forms.

Its only a matter of time before it gets stuffed as the above poster red has said its a disaster waiting to happen. I just hope ordinary punters dont get burned, the original directors obviously had a good payout now.

This is the most overvalued company that I have seen in years. How on Earth did they manage to float it at this market cap? It's a disaster waiting to happen.

mridyard. Oh I know how to do a short,I have an IGF account also but was saying never quite balanced it that shorting was moral? Stupid maybe its all about making a few bob and I certainly think this is headed under £3 soon.

Thetoonarmy2, it's easy to short this stock open a CFD account with IG. I've checked you can short FCH, current sell price 337p. It will cost you a daily interest equivalent to 3% PA.Required Margin 25%.I've taken a small buy position and will top up once it's stabilised. It is a high risk investment but they have managed to raise £1.5bn in the IPO.Anyway I hope your sentiments are wrong time will tell.

Mridyard. You are joking surely, they charge a commission on every loan? they pay out up to 7.5% commission to introducers for every loan, they are picking up a large number of defaults this would have been better priced at £2.50 max per share on IPO anyway think you will see this unless lots “ stabilisation” manoeuvres are done it would be a good time to get out. I’m looking at taking a Short out on this FC, not CF though :) must say I haven't done a short before will look at it just wished I had done it when it floated.

Should be worth a punt at this price. Remember CF charges commission on each loan and their capital is not at risk. The growth in the company shows investors are still making a reasonable profit. Clearly the market believes the share price was too high.
