    • There are reports that the company reached a deal with the DOJ on timber sourcing violations. That issue is unrelated to the separate matter of formaldehyde contamination.

    • Whitney Tilson, who first disclosed a short position in Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL) in late 2013, says he has covered.
    • Tilson: "In the past week, I’ve received information that leads me to believe that senior management of Lumber Liquidators wasn’t aware that the company was selling Chinese-made laminate that had high levels of formaldehyde ... If there are no 'smoking gun' documents/emails, then the doomsday scenario for the company (and the stock) is less likely, so I covered my short position today."
    • He adds that if Lumber Liquidators' management "didn't have evil intent," downside scenarios are less likely and upside scenarios more likely. "This shift in the risk/reward equation has led me to cover my short position (for tax reasons, I have done so by buying in-the-money ($10 strike) call options expiring next month; I expect to close out these offsetting positions in the new year)."
    • Lumber Liquidators' beaten-down shares have jumped to $16.50 after hours.

    • Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL) is now up 25% for the week after another 5% gain in today's action. There's been some firming up of sentiment on LL following Q3 earnings and the naming of a new CEO.
    • Investors have received almost no help from Wall Street firms over the last year, with the majority consistently missing the swings down and up. On Seeking Alpha, there's plenty of fresh debate, led by contributor Milkweed who digs deep into the details on testing and compliance.
    • Despite this week's run for Lumber Liquidators, shares are still off 74% YTD. Short interest remains elevated at +10M shares.

    • Lumber Liquidators (LL -5.1%) is called a company in a state of "flux" by Piper Jaffray's Peter Keith after he met with senior management at the lumber seller.
    • Though a new business model and initiatives at Lumber Liquidators look promising, legal and regulatory risk remain a constant. Keith also warns on longer-term gross margin rates. SA Contributor Elephant Analytics presented a deeper dive into LL's gross margin issues last month.
    • Shares of Lumber Liquidators dropped below $15 for the first time since in two weeks today.
