  • More On Lumber Liquidators And Formaldehyde [View article]
    And when this future regulation is determined and everyone is told exactly how to determine it, LL can simply test its laminates in the same fashion. If it exceeds, they pull the lot...if it doesn't, they sell it to the public.

  • Is Lumber Liquidators Still A Viable Short? Or Is It A Promising Long? [View article]
    It's simple. There is no other shoe to drop in this story except what the CPSC finds in 6 months. And they already said they intend to test the product as it is used in the real world. CARB has now had ample time to test LL's laminates any which way they want to test it and no action. Each day with no action is a good thing.

    I think the upside comes shorter than people think because LL is receiving all this real world data from the 10,000 tests they've shipped out, then analysed by an independent lab and data collected. Data they can send to CARB and the CPSC showing "hey look, our laminate / formaldehyde emissions aren't harming anyone".

  • Lumber Liquidators Overshot To The Downside [View article]
    LULU had a $2 Billion class action suit against them. The court dropped the case. No settlement. LULU knew the pants were defective. LL has independent data showing it is not defective.

    So what you're saying is, if these independent 3rd party lab 10,000 home tests come back almost all negative, then it would be the largest real world study ever performed on formaldehyde emissions, and it would prove there is no toxic buildup in homes. Correct?

    Lumber Liquidators is playing this extremely smart. 10,000 people have their home tested for indoor air exposure from a 3rd party. When almost all tests come back below CARB limits, guess who is going to use that data in front of the court, CARB, CPSC, EPA, and OSHA?

    Lumber Liquidators is.

    And that will be a LOT of unbiased data. It accounts for energy efficient homes and non energy efficient homes.

    It's a brilliant move, and I can not wait for Lumber Liquidators to release it's findings from this data. They could release that data with the quarterly results.

    LL stock will soar so fast, it will make our heads spin. Because you better believe that all these agencies do not have 10,000 real world data points.

    Is aspirin good for your heart? It makes a difference if you are comparing data from10 subjects, 100 subjects, 1000 subjects, 10000 subjects. The more data, the better accuracy.

    I almost spit out my formaldehyde tainted coffee when I read that.

    Right under his article it says "Problem with this article? Please tell us."

    Click it and tell SA why do SA readers have to be subjected to articles that carry no new information on LL? Even if the lowly readers have no say, they should be open to listen to fellow SA contributors.

    There is cancer causing benzene in gasoline. Now if I were going to test the safety of an automobile for the harmful effects on my children and pets, would I rip the car apart to get to the gasoline and test it that way? (deconstructive)

    Because then, it would be considered an evil cancer causing car.

    Or...would I test it how the vehicle is used in the real world? Are fumes escaping from the gasoline tank? If so, at what rate per hour into the vehicle I'm driving? And is THAT rate of off-gassing of benzene cancer causing? or is it acceptable for the health of babies and puppies?

    If a plank of laminate is wrapped in a coating that prevents fumes from the "gasoline" to escape at an unhealthy level per hour, why would I care about it? Why would anyone?

    The CPSC doesn't. They want to test the laminate in real world conditions. The reader/homeowner should trust your ramblings over the CPSC's? I think not.

    You published this "article" over an hour before the market opened and the stock traded above yesterday's close for the first 15 minutes of trading.

    At what point do you realize your posting is ineffective? (except to get jeers/attention from the collective SA crowd)

    Understand the difference between desperation and effectiveness.

    Understand the difference between research and stalking (in regards to Ray Cotton).

    Lumber Liquidators is your white whale Captain Ahab.

    When the CPSC clears them, I can only imagine what personal destructive mode you transform into from where you are today. Oh god...I predict the articles from you at that time will indeed be very, very disturbing and scary.

    "PS - I no longer read the message boards for the articles I publish."

    Another lie.

    You continue to respond to the comments below section in your last two articles publicly on SA. However, you cherry pick which comments to respond to.

    I'd simply like to know why are you ignoring the financial services firm Raymond James's testing of Lumber Liquidator's laminate flooring where their testing said the laminate was well below CARB limits.

    Raymond James doesn't care if they go long, short, neutral, or avoid LL stock for their clients. Instead, they raised their rating and price target for LL after doing their own independent laminate testing on behalf of their clients.

    Are you saying their goal is to lose their clients money? That doesn't seem logical does it?

    It's almost as logical as linking a compliance officer guy to the security of the Oscars to a breach of responsibility to Lumber Liquidators?

    Doesn't tobacco actually kill millions of people?

    Sheez..if I were going after the largest common denominator of saving the world...I certainly wouldn't care about a small segment of laminate flooring. I'd go after Phillip Morris (PM).

    Not only that. You have to wait for all the analysts to respond to the negative news. Not just the first two to pipe up. I always wait to see how much other press covers the story and for how long. Lululemon had legs to stay in the headlines (pun not intended).

    See through yoga pants are a talk show host's dream. It was a sexy, sensationalist story.

    Formaldehyde glue? Not so much. Kids aren't dying. Allergy symptoms don't seem too evil Mr. Burns / China Syndrome / Soylent Green type of material to give much coverage to.

    I can't find it talked about in the mainstream media any more.

    If the laminate core were made from people...ok...then you'd have some media interest.

    Check out the margins of Costco. (COST)

    Get back to me.

    Speaking of which, I'd love Costco to get into the flooring biz.

    Don't make him angry.

    You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
