Goldman Sachs unconvinced on Lumber Liquidators

|About: Lumber Liquidators Holdin... (LL)|By:, SA News Editor

Goldman Sachs updates on Sell-rated Lumber Liquidators (LL +7%) following the company's above-consensus Q2 report.

"We believe that there’s good visibility to LL’s return to profitability after multiple challenging years, but that the stock’s current price level embeds a much faster recovery than the company can deliver," writes the GS team.

"Based on our valuation methodology, to earn its current market cap LL would have to achieve ~$100mn in EBITDA in 2019, nearly 2x what we expect it to earn."

Goldman Sach lifts its 12-month price target on Lumber Liquidators to $18 from $16, a level that still implies a 50% drop from the current share price.
