Guru Investment Theses on Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Lumber Liquidators Holdings - Nov 21, 2013

Lumber Liquidators Holdings, Inc. (LL), the specialty retailer of hardwood flooring, rose 37.0% in the quarter and is up 101.9% year-to-date. The company reported continued stellar results: double digit comparable sales, greatly expanded margins, and earnings that nearly doubled. Management also highlighted success in rolling out its new store prototype and new initiatives to broaden its assortments and do more mainstream advertising. The stock did fall about 10% at the end of the quarter, when it was reported it is being investigated for improperly sourcing some product, which we do not believe is terribly material.

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Baron Funds Comments on Lumber Liquidators Holdings - Jun 10, 2013

Lumber Liquidators Holdings, Inc.(LL) , the specialty retailer of hardwood floors, has been an incredible performer, rising another 33% in the first quarter, after gaining about 200% last year. The company continues to put up double digit comparable sales, with the wind at its back from the housing recovery and major improvements made to operations by the new management team. We are excited about the new store format that is about to be unveiled, and the potential to double store count over time. We think LL can continue to compound earnings at 20% plus going forward.
