How are you defining the first element of your compilation list?
You appear to be starting at zero, instead of using the first element

comp[x_ /; Abs[x] > 0.002] = 0;
comp[x_] := x;

FoldList[comp[#1 + #2] &, 0, Rest[valueList]]

If you'd like to start from the first value of valueList:

FoldList[comp[#1 + #2] &, First[valueList], Rest[valueList]]
