Guru Investment Theses on Mattress Firm Holding Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Mattress Firm Holding Corp. - Nov 21, 2013

Mattress Firm Holding Corp. (MFRM), the largest operator of mattress stores in the states, reported soft sales and its shares fell 21.1% in the quarter. We think sales are soft because of the general slowdown in consumer spending and because of a lack of advertising by the major mattress brands, as they digest a major acquisition. We are still attracted to the company's dominant market position, its opportunity to open new stores and continue to consolidate its industry, and the shift towards higher priced specialty product. We think sales will soon recover and earnings will resume their fast pace of growth.

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Baron Funds Comments on Mattress Firm Holding - Feb 06, 2013

The shares of Mattress Firm Holding Corp. (MFRM), the largest domestic retailer of mattresses, fell 12.9% when the company lowered earnings expectations as sales slowed at the end of the year.We still like the stock a bunch, since we think it will continue to benefit from the shift in mattress sales to dedicated mattress retailers and the trend favoring higher priced specialty mattresses. We believe the company can more than double its store base through new store openings and highly accretive acquisitions of competing chains. The stock trades at only 13 times our estimate for the coming year.

From Baron Funds' fourth quarter letter.
