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.

Leggett & Platt price target lowered to $48 from $55 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Keith Hughes lowered his price target on Leggett & Platt to $48 after its Q1 earnings miss, noting that low volumes and steel price inflation hurt results. While lagging price realization will hurt results in Q2, the analyst contends that margins can recover, starting with the recent declines in scrap metal prices. Hughes keeps his Buy rating on Leggett & Platt but acknowledges that margin recovery is likely to be pushed out a quarter from his prior forecasts.
