Trade-Ideas LLC identified Sky-mobi ( MOBI) as a strong on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Sky-mobi as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • MOBI has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $6.7 million.
  • MOBI has traded 244,331 shares today.
  • MOBI is trading at 5.33 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.

'Strong on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as M&A events, material stock news, analyst upgrades, insider buying, buying from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and momentum traders are piling into a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize. In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Sky-mobi as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • MOBI has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.79, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • The revenue fell significantly faster than the industry average of 11.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 26.8%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Software industry and the overall market, SKY-MOBI LTD -ADR's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for SKY-MOBI LTD -ADR is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 25.37%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 3.99% significantly trails the industry average.
