Following the IPO, the price of shares in Funding Circle have tanked. It did not help that in in July, Funding Circle guided lower.
Today, shares have bounced off their 99p low, trading around 120p/share. But even with the bounce, Funding Circle trades considerably lower than its IPO price.
If you bought at the IPO price and still hold the shares you may still be along for a long ride to get back to where shares initially traded.
