Before the Bell Scans of Tempur Pedic, Select Comfort, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Leggett & Platt, and Sealy

LONDON, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

One of the biggest beneficiaries of the ongoing improvement in the U.S. housing market has been the home furnishings & fixtures industry. The improvement in the housing market has been driven by record low mortgage rates. Mortgage rates are expected to remain low for a considerable time, given the Federal Reserve's commitment to ongoing quantitative easing program. Given these factors, the housing market is expected to continue to recover, benefiting home furnishings & fixtures companies such as Tempur-Pedic International Inc. (NYSE: TPX), Select Comfort Corp. (NASDAQ: SCSS), Fortune Brands Home & Security Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), Leggett & Platt Inc. (NYSE: LEG) and Sealy Corporation (NYSE: ZZ).
