  • Block's History Shows It's Profitable To Be On The Opposite Side Of His Trade After Audit Results

    Disclaimer: This was going to be part of an article I was working on for SA. Unfortunately, SA for some odd reason felt this should not be included in my article. This is why I'm posting it here for all of my followers and fellow NQ shareholders to see.

    During one of several television interviews with Bloomberg, Carson Block, touted several times that NQ Mobile (NYSE:NQ) would be delisted within a year.

    "We have no doubt that in a year from now, this company will have been delisted." - Carson Block

    Fast forward a year later, and it looks like Block was completely wrong! Go figure! Astonishing, Block has YET to get a call right on companies that have gone the IPO route (which NQ Mobile did of course). Here are some of his calls in the updated table below.

    IPO CompaniesPrice Before MW ReportPrice After MW ReportPrice NowPercent Change
    (OLAMSP)$1.66$1.562.10+35%
    (NASDAQ:FSIN)$5.79$6.10$9.50 (Taken Private)+56%
    (NYSE:EDU)$14.62$9.50$21.58+127%
    (NASDAQ:FMCN)$25.50$15.43$27.50 (Taken Private)+78%
    (NYSE:QIHU)$40.22*$38.53$70.38+83%
    (NYSE:AMT)$74.71$73.87$96.40+32%
    Average Return   +68.5%

    * No official short report was released on QIHU however, Block told Bloomberg that he believed the Company was also a fraud

    Block was also betting against Vipshop holdings (NYSE:VIPS) in May of 2013 and if he hasn't covered already, would be down more than 655% to date.

    As we can see, it pays to do the opposite of Block after audits are completed as the truths from the lies are finally sorted out. NQ Mobile just found out on Monday the good news, and just like the rest of Block's IPO calls, should give investors great returns over the coming months and years.
