Jefferies analyst, Daniel Binder, reiterated his Buy rating on shares of Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL) and raised his price target to $14.50 from $13.60 after comps turned positive for the first time in almost 3 years, but GM% disappointed and SG&A costs took a step up in advertising and payroll.

Price and mix shifts continue to help margins, but growth in lower-GM% installation services and expenses related to assortment refresh are keeping margin expansion in check in the near term. Investors will have to remain patient as management works toward a balance of sales growth and profitability.
