Lumber Liquidators is the latest company to report softness in the housing sector over the beginning of the year. The retailer of hardwood flooring recorded earnings of 49 cents a share, 13 cents less than expected, and revenue 6% below analysts' estimates. The housing sector is showing similar weakness.
