It'll take awhile, but my guess is after all the dust settles, this company will revive its reputation, and will end up being a leader in the industry regarding quality laminate flooring.

This is oversold; CEO leaving does not matter to consumers, they will still continue to sell wood and consolidate the market.

Rarely does the market give us an opportunity like this on a company with NO DEBT. That's right, NONE.

Good luck, this is my first ever CAPS pick....

Normally I'm vulture buyer of beaten down names, but I think LL is in real trouble here. If there was hope of turning things around, its likely the CEO would be sticking around. In addition to the investigation by the Consumer Product Safety Commission about the use of formaldehyde in its laminated products, its future sales are going to be decimated by these allegations. You can imagine a future homeowner discussing flooring options, and the wife telling the husband, 'you are not putting in that LL flooring, it causes cancer.' LOL. Then you have the liability of LL probably having to replace existing flooring in homes across America -- that will be the death knell. If that wasn't bad enough, you have allegations the company imported illegally sourced wood from protected animal habitats. So, in addition to LL giving U.S. consumers cancer, LL is killing panda bears by taking away their habitat. Wow, talk about a perfect storm that LL brought on itself. I see this one going to zero.

Let us see if the CEO resigning turns this company back around. Rock bottom.

Long term winner, especially at this beaten-down price.

Excellent model and product line. This security is on sale based on questionable problem in only one one of its product lines and a single slow quarter. Getting in now should provide nice return over the next several years.

After yesterday's drop on weak earnings, I think that the stock has gotten cheap enough to bet on a turnaround. LL has done a lot of things right, and the formaldehyde thing seems to me to be a hatchet job. The Justice Department investigation may be a bit more serious, but I'm willing to buy on the cheap even with this risk involved.

I'm a glutton for punishment. I cashed in on a nice bounce after the last implosion. Let's see if I can do it again.

Nice dip on bad news.

Lumber Liquidators, first Q numbers should be fine. Customers will buy where lumber is cheap and housing market will pick up based on demographic trends. Peter Lynch value: $57.

This company has had a big fall from grace. The shorts came out and tested their product using the deconstructive method. While this is an acceptable test according to Carb it is not the final test. But the market was scared off and the stock dropped. While the CEO did a very poor job of explaining his position I think that people will eventually forget this incident. So this is a call that in two years LL will be much higher.

The 60 Minutes report was bogus journalism. The EPA's independent testing will confirm that LL is not violating Formaldehyde regulations and so the risk of lawsuits will dissipate. Also, a couple quarters of reports will indicate that sales have not plummeted enough to warrant the precipitous drop in stock price. In short, the market overreacted to faulty bad news, and the correction will be favorable for LL.

Whitney Tilson's initial short thesis had nothing do do with China made laminate flooring - it was about supply disruption around deforesting in Russia - he was correct and profited. He has now morphed his original thesis into a cause celeb to publicity and increase AUM for his funds. He is a Bill Ackman wannabe. The stock is badly beaten down and oversold. I expect a rebound in price as the headline risk wanes.

i think the stock could be undervalued at this point. who knows if it ever gets back to its old highs or how long that will take if it ever does but it probably deserves to be higher than today's quote.

perhaps there is not as much brand damage as some may have thought. consumer's memories are sometimes shorter than those of investors who follow businesses more closely.

Seeking Alpha article made a good point of researching their margins before the scandal period. Despite the big drop, this still looks good as a short.

I think the PR problem will be short-run and consumers will start buying again soon.

This stock is currently cheap due to the 60 Minutes expose. I believe they will come out of this whole debacle fine and the stock will recover.
