Louisiana-Pacific Corp Down 8.00% To $57.57 After Earnings Beat

Louisiana-Pacific Corp (LPX) said before open Tuesday that it earned $4.57 per share in quarter two 2022. The company reported earnings on an adjusted basis, so it may not be directly comparable to analyst estimates or prior periods.

In the same quarter a year ago, the company earned $4.74 per share on revenue of $1.3 billion.
