#1 - Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL)

Homebuilders are becoming increasingly exasperated at the lumber shortage. Many builders are now attaching escalation clauses to their contracts with consumers to account for the rapid, and hard to predict, increases in lumber prices. In fact, the lumber shortage is adding an extra $36,000 to the cost of a new home.

Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL) stands to be a big winner as many consumers are turning to high-margin vinyl flooring as an alternative. That is playing out in the company’s recent earnings report in which the company beat on earnings. Revenue was more of a mixed bag. The company fell short of analysts’ expectations, but the number was still higher on a year-over-year basis. 

But investors are a fickle bunch and they were expecting more. Or maybe they are becoming weary of companies being unable to provide guidance due to supply chain disruptions. LL stock is down 26% in 2021 and nearly 10% since April 21.
