Leggett is a nifty little company. They make a variety of things including beds. Lots of beds! They specialize in mattresses; design and engineering.

This company always reminds me of the Richard Dreyfus character in the Disney movie 'Down and Out in Beverly Hills'. In the movie, he made a fortune making wire coat hangers. Leggett & Platt makes a fortune selling wire framing for beds.

We are buying the company at 1.67 times sales. Which seems very cheap to me for a manufacturing company with growing revenues. (by comparison MMM sells at 3 1/2 times sales)

Held its dividend steady in mid-Feb, is going through a slight restructure and is going in the proper direction. Give it 18 months for a 50% return.
