Guru Investment Theses on NQ Mobile Inc

Baron Funds Comments on NQ Mobile Inc. - Feb 24, 2014

Shares of NQ Mobile, Inc. (NQ) suffered a large decline in the fourth quarter. NQ Mobile is a leading mobile security provider in China with an emerging mobile gaming business. A report issued by a noted short seller accusing the company of inflating revenue and profit drove the stock lower during the quarter. While we do not think the accusations have merit, we sold NQ during the quarter to reassess as the company completes its independent internal investigation. (Catherine Chen)
