Attached are the slides I presented this morning with my analysis of one of my most recent short positions, Lumber Liquidators (LL), which trigged a 12% drop in the stock today; to download the report by the Environmental Investigation Agency that I cite on page 13 and watch the entire EIA video embedded on page 14, see: http://eia-global.org/campaigns/forests-campaign/liquidating-the-forests).



I’m convinced that a meaningful contributor to the company’s unprecedented margin expansion in the last two years is due to sourcing large quantities of illegally harvested and imported hardwoods. With federal authorities having raided LL’s headquarters two months ago, the company is under intense scrutiny and will have to ensure that its supply chain is pristine. I believe this is likely to be highly disruptive and cause margins to revert back toward historical levels, which is most definitely not priced into this high-flying stock.


Even after today’s drop, I think the stock, which has risen seven-fold in less than two years, has much further to fall, as it still trades at 41x trailing earnings and 21x trailing EBITDA.
