StockCall Study on Leggett & Platt, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Select Comfort, and Tempur Pedic

LONDON, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The housing market has improved significantly since last year. The recovery has benefited home furnishings & fixtures companies such as Leggett & Platt Inc. (NYSE: LEG), Fortune Brands Home & Security Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), Select Comfort Corp. (NASDAQ: SCSS), and Tempur-Pedic International Inc. (NYSE: TPX). The housing market has been improving as mortgage rates have fallen to record low levels thanks mainly to Federal Reserve's ultra-loose monetary policy. With the Fed committed to aggressive monetary measures, the housing market is expected to continue to improve. This should benefit home furnishings & fixtures companies. On Tuesday, though, shares of all four companies ended lower, even as the broad market edged higher on the back of some solid economic data from China.
