On Thursday's edition of Consumer Countdown, host Mark Reeth and Motley Fool consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly discussed some of the big headlines that crossed their desks over the last few days.
One of those headlines was about Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), which had very strong earnings and raised its full-year guidance. Mark thinks that's pretty cocky for a company that just had its offices raided by Federal investigators, but Mike believes there's a good reason for the confidence.
After that, Sean discusses Lorillard (NYSE:LO), which continues to see strong e-cig sales. In fact, the company is now acquiring SkyCig, a U.K.-based e-cig company. Sean likes the idea, but doesn't think Lorillard's future is strictly in e-cigs.
Then, Mike takes a look at Six Flags (NYSE:SIX), which had a great quarter. However, he doesn't think the next few quarters will be nearly as strong for the company. And finally, Sean talks about Skechers (NYSE:SKX), and how despite the company knocking it out of the park this quarter, shares were still punished.
