GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

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)

NQ Mobile, Inc. (NQ) was up nearly 170% in the third quarter. NQ is the #1 mobile security provider in China with an emerging mobile gaming business.

Intresting article in http://d.muddywatersresearch.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/MW_NQ_07062014.pdf

points to keep in mind acording to the article
"We believe that by June 25th a) Ms. Han had already informed NQ she was resigning, and b) NQ
had accepted that PwC will never issue an unqualified audit opinion. In delaying the day of
reckoning by at least a week, NQ likely provided an opportunity for insiders to dump shares. "
