Revenue reported by Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc for the fourth quarter of the year was $259.86 million.

However, it was bad news for LL stock by coming in below Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $264.31 million for the period.

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc’s losses per share of 10 cents also didn’t do LL stock any favors today. While Q4 2017 losses per share were 10 cents better than the same time last year, they still missed analysts’ estimate of 9 cents per share.
