KeyBanc downgraded Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL) from Buy to Hold.

Analyst, Bradley B. Thomas, said, "Over the last several years, we have remained bulls on the underlying business, management team, and growth opportunity; however, with the stock up 94.9% year-to-date (vs. 8.6% increase in the S&P 500) and valuation essentially at all-time highs (at a P/E of 27x 2012 and 22x 2013), we now believe the risk/reward is more balanced."

Thomas raises FY12 EPS estimate from $1.22 to $1.28 and FY13 from $1.44 to $1.54.
