Further weakness in the lumber, plywood, and OSB commodity markets continues to be seen. In this type of environment, speculative inventory building is being shunned and inventory has been pushed up the channel to the producers. www.randomlengths.com is one place to follow the action, as is the futures markets.
Do you or anyone else know if historically there is a link between OSB prices or lumber futures and the price of LPX stock? Or is the linkage erratic? One would think there should be a link, but how strong is it, if indeed there is one?
osb futures reflect traders opinion as to the future price of the product in question.one varible in stock prices depends on expectations of future profits and the link to futures is based on this analogy.to suggest no link exists???? tubo you would be dangerous if you had some basic knowledge in fundamentals.give up the free speech program (you are well documented) and help us figure out how to make a profit on lpx,be it long or short.peace to you and luck on your investments.
