I kept this in my watchlist for quite some time, but never took the time to do a DD on the company. Missed this one. I'll wait for prices to pull back, I don't think it's valuation is currently justified, even given their recent growth.
Good report on outlining the differences between Lumber Liquidators and Floor & Decor. But no discussion of relative valuation. Buy, sell or hold?
