    Basically you are saying you use insinuations in your articles to harm the company and profit from trading volatility in the stock.

    Ay caray, another contributor who sees ghosts and doesn't trust NQ Mobile. NQ Mobile has real businesses and has real value.

    Why you are so skeptical?


    Many analysts and investors have done great due diligence and invested in the company after the MW claims, so why still be on the dark side of the trade?

    Lie and distort, will likely have an impact again on NQ's results.

    Bashing stories have in most cases an impact on the financial results of the targeted company. It's basically creating a self-fulfilling prophecy by the shorters.

    Why?

    Investors/consumers/users are reading these stories an act on it. So by creating distortion users really think NQ is doing something wrong. This will lead to a decrease in the company's consumer base and creates disappointing business results for the company.

    So at the end the shorter/basher can say: I was right all the way....numbers are fabricated/products are trash/.................

    This kind of practice has to stop, because it can devastate a company!

    It seems that your only goal is to destroy the company. Why?

    Now you come with copyright violations, what's next? ......... Sex violations?

  • Premier Financial Bancorp: A Community Bank To Watch Going Forward [View article]
    The dividend is pre -2010 level.


    In 1995 the dividend was $0.45, in 1996 $0.50 and in 2009 it was also $0.44 just like in 2013.


    The payout ratio is still low compared with the beginning years, but this has something to do with the regulatory environment of the last years.

  • NQ Mobile Posts Mixed Results, Guides Q1 And FY14 Higher: So Was The Drop Justified? [View article]
    The problem with short articles that have been written about NQ Mobile is that they had an impact on their Q4 results. Some articles were accusing the company that it used spyware in their apps and other questionable features which could harm users. All this talk had of course a negative impact on NQ's business.


    That's why I personally don't like to write short articles, because they can destroy a company, its employees, etc. .....

    Indeed it is a small cap, but from a valuation point of view I think it can offer investors a good return going forward!

    Right now all Chinese small caps are out favor. The only one that performs quite well is China Digital TV (STV), because it announced a special cash dividend last week.

    Interesting discussion! As a devoted investor in US-listed China small caps myself, the only thing I have to say to management teams of these companies. Improve your corporate governance, pay dividends, buy back stock, connect with your investor's base (road shows), look for a qualified CFO that understand US GAAP and other US regulations.


    Be open and transparant!

    I think the financials are reliable but the related party loan transaction is something investors don't like. What would happen if that loan had been defaulted?

    A good article and I agree with your thesis. If there are some minor red flags investors can decide to stay, but in this specific case it's hard to have confidence with your investment. So then it's better to sell, as we did!

    Other US-listed Chinese stocks have also some problems with internal controls but really do an effort to improve. An example: American Lorain (ALN).

    Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting.

    Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act. Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based upon the framework in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Based on that evaluation, our management concluded that, as of December 31, 2013, our internal controls over financial reporting are not effective.

    The material weakness and significant deficiency identified by our management as of December 31, 2013 relates to the ability of the Company to record transactions and provide disclosures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We did not have sufficient and skilled accounting personnel with an appropriate level of technical accounting knowledge and experience in the application of U.S. GAAP commensurate with our financial reporting requirements. For example, our staff members do not hold licenses such as Certified Public Accountant or Certified Management Accountant in the U.S., have not attended U.S. institutions for training as accountants, and have not attended extended educational programs that would provide sufficient relevant education relating to U.S. GAAP. Our staff will require substantial training to meet the demands of a U.S. public company and our staff’s understanding of the requirements of U.S. GAAP-based reporting are inadequate.

    Remediation Initiative

    We plan to provide U.S. GAAP training sessions to our accounting team. The training sessions will be organized to help our corporate accounting team gain experience in U.S. GAAP reporting and to enhance their awareness of new and emerging pronouncements with potential impact over our financial reporting. In November 2013, we organized a corporate wide, three day training session for all finance and accounting staff. In October 2013, we participated in a speech in given by Mr. Robert Khuzami, former Director of Enforcement at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission from 2009- 2013 who led a key reorganization of the Division of Enforcement. The speech covered the current SEC and DOJ enforcement environments, the implications of increased local government enforcement activities, SEC compliance obligations for foreign issuers, among other things. In January 2014, we attended the training session featuring a COSO update from Mr. Robert B. Hirth, Chairman of the COSO. We plan to continue to participate in such educational seminars, tutorials, and conferences in future.

    In the case above, I am more confident and I stay invested!
