    funny, got a price notification on this today but still don't want it. Will have to be $35 for me to buy it, dividend isn't high enough....

    I bought LEG during the pandemic low, will add to the position today and will hold long term. This has been a solid holding for me with a great dividend history. GLTA

    what did I tell ya, just a hack dividend stock that can’t hold anything.

    Anyone share the theory that people like myself will begin looking for American manufactured furnishings? I've got a chair (no doubt) sitting in one of those containers off-shore in Long Beach. I ordered it in May. Yes, "Made in China". I own LEG as part of a steady retiree cash flow but now think it may show some growth.

    The stock getting a good shellacking today. Everybody must be getting out now that earnings are out.

    I have owned this stock for 20 plus years and made more than my money back on the dividends alone.
    At today's closing price it's trading around 3 times more than what I paid. Not exactly amazon.. good enough for me.

    Once again, I told you so. Never buy and hold this stock unless you want lame returns. Buy in sub $40 hold six months and repeat....

    Great stock for reinvesting dividends for the long haul. Been a shareholder for a very long time.

    Very long term holder here. Reinvest the dividends into more LEG. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

    Was expecting this news that LEG would change 2020 guidance. Big question....will the dividend be impacted?

    So LEG will no longer be a Dividend Aristicrat since its not raising its dividend? (They are keeping it at same rate as last 4 quarters)

    Questioning why Leggett jumped back into the foam business as their largest-to-date acquisition when they have already failed miserably with a previous foam enterprise. CEO (who I really like) seems in a quandary why the financial community is less than thrilled, even though foam mattresses can be obtained from any number of domestic and import sources....and likely cheaper than Leggett (who will certainly bridle the channels they will sell to, thus failing to capitalize on the potential in the category). Over the past 20 years LEG has a tendency to burn up cash buying market share in a given product category, invariably only to let it dribble away over time to price competition. That is what has happened with ventures into aluminum, textiles, bedding support, and adjustable beds. With a 21% YTD drop in stock price, I was thrilled to see LEG remain stable (+17c) with higher-than-average volume today, even in the wake of yet another dramatic drop in the broad market. Perhaps the bottom has hit....and we can expect a bounce? I really like Leggett...and hope this time they know something nobody else does....

    Nice company, if we did not have a virus with no vaccine for at least a year. Hope they can hold out for that long as not too many going to buy furniture when they are unemployed... Afraid we will see $12 before we see $55 again.

    BOOM !! Beautiful multi top break above $46.12. I'd feel much better if volume was in the 1.5 million range. Targeting $48.72 then a shot at the low to mid $50s.
    I'm in the March $45 Calls. Targeting $3.80 with a potential to $6+ on or before ex dividend. The monkey wench would be a market pulling back, or selling off. Fingers crossed.
    Trade green my friends [_] cheers [_]
