Mattress names weak after Piper finds slower growth for September
Piper Jaffray's monthly mattress survey for September, which includes a sampling of mattress retailers across the U.S. representing hundreds of stores, showed slower growth for September, analyst Peter Keith told investors in a research note last night. The survey continues a trend that started with Labor Day weekend and marks a deceleration from the "healthy trend" seen in May through August, Keith writes. He believes "weak" mattress units are the issue, with September showing the largest unit decline in his firm's survey year-to-date. The analyst suspects unit weakness is primarily at the low-end, noting that Tempur-Pedic (TPX) sales "remained healthy." Keith kept Overweight ratings on Tempur-Pedic, Select Comfort (SCSS) and Leggett & Platt (LEG). Mattress unit weakness at the low-end would be most unfavorable to Leggett & Platt, the analyst cautions. Shares of Tempur-Pedic and Select Comfort are both down 5% in early trading while Leggett & Platt is down 1%.

Leggett & Platt downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith downgraded Leggett & Platt to Neutral saying he sees more structural challenges in the company's U.S. Bedding business following the Q3 earnings report. Innerspring units continue to decline as consumer buying behavior shifts to low-end memory foam product being bought online, Keith tells investors in a research note. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $46 from $49 and views Leggett as fully valued.

Stifel says Steinhoff news may be good for Tempur Sealy, bad for Leggett & Platt
Stifel analyst John Baugh noted that Steinhoff shares are down more than 60% in Frankfurt after its CEO resigned amid an investigation into irregular accounting practices. He believes the news could benefit Tempur Sealy (TPX), a sales competitor to Steinhoff's Mattress Firm, and could also benefit Sleep Number (SNBR) to a lesser extent. Baugh also thinks this could be bad news for Leggett & Platt (LEG), which has Steinhoff as an important customer.
