Voodoo from that green circled spot puts this in the low 3s, say, $3.15 a share, next stop. You'd have to go back to 2011 to find someone whose cost basis is lower than the current price ... basically every shareholder here is underwater, many disastrously so ... this means there's no "support."
No great surprise to those of us who have been following this stock: NQ Mobile Inc. Announces Changes to its Board of Directors and Provides Status Update of the 2013 Annual Audit. Can't wait to read Frederick Ziegel's next company update. He's an analyst at Topeka Capital Markets who has been bullish on NQ (Buy rating, $33 price target), even after everyone else (Piper Jaffray, Macquarie, Cannacord) wisely suspended coverage.
Are you listening to what the market is saying about NQ? Yes, Muddy Waters' many reports are badly organized and poorly written, but that doesn't mean they aren't onto something.
