Baron Funds Comments on Mattress Firm Holding

February 06, 2013 | About:

The shares of Mattress Firm Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: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.
