The stock market has more than doubled from the COVID-19 low in late March 2020 while lumber prices have more than quintupled, notching another record high on Friday at more than $1,600 per thousand board feet. As one of the largest timberland owners and sawmill operators in North America, Weyerhaeuser (NYSE: WY) is a key beneficiary of the lumber boom.
