  1. Good morning Jonathan:

    I’m Jonathan Lin, a research intern, and I have been assigned a project to examine the hardwood flooring and lumber sourcing industry. I read your recent Investopedia article here and thought it did a great job in highlighting why a particular company like Lumber Liquidators may see itself in a tight spot, even with its solid growth numbers and reported earnings and sales. Would it be possible to chat with you sometime so that I can get a better sense of the basic dynamic of the industry, and better orient myself to what makes a company like Lumber Liquidators stand out amongst its competitors?

    Thanks so much for your time and consideration. You can respond to this blog post, direct message my wordpress, or contact my email too at jonathan.zh.lin [at] gmail [dot] com.

    I appreciate your help with my research!


    Jonathan Lin
