Good on the testing!
The spec is 145 psi. If any one cylinder is lower than 10% of the others there is a problem on that cylinder.
What I would do next is squirt a little 30 wt oil into the cylinder #4 and recheck compression. If compression comes up, I would suspect a ring problem or a worn/damaged cylinder.
If the compression does not come up, then I would lean towards a bad valve or leakage through the plug hole threads.
A cylinder leakage test can also be done. Air escaping through and into tailpipe would indicate exhaust valve, through the throttle body would be intake valve and leakage into the pcv would be rings.
