Currently there are 3 analysts that rate Tempur Sealy International a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 7 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Tempur Sealy International as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, robust revenue growth and increase in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including premium valuation and generally higher debt management risk.

On the positive front, Koss Corporation ( KOSS), up 14.0%, Verso Paper ( VRS), up 12.8%, Deswell Industries ( DSWL), up 6.9% and TriState Capital Holdings ( TSC), up 5.7% , were all gainers within the consumer goods sector with Under Armour ( UA) being today's featured consumer goods sector leader.
