NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Lumber Liquidators (LL) - Get Report were diving 13.96% to $15.90 on heavy trading volume early Monday afternoon after the company reported a wider-than-expected loss for the 2016 third quarter on Monday.
Before the market open, the Toano, VA-based hardwood floors retailer posted a net loss of 68 cents per diluted share, while analysts were looking for a loss of 18 cents per share, according to FactSet.
Revenue rose 3.4% to $244.1 million year-over-year and was higher than analysts' estimates of $231.8 million.
Comparable-store sales increased 1% in the period, better than Wall Street's forecasts. Analysts surveyed by FactSet were expecting a decline of 3.9%.
"We are pleased with the direction of our sales performance this quarter but recognize we have work to do to restore Lumber Liquidators to growth and profitability for the long term," CEO John Presley said in a statement.
The company opened one new store during the quarter.
Last year, CBS's "60 Minutes" alleged that Lumber Liquidators had sold Chinese laminate products with dangerously high levels of formaldehyde, which may cause cancer. The stock plummeted more than 70% in the aftermath of the allegations, according to Bloomberg.
