Mattress Firm (MFRM +5.1%) CEO Stephen Stagner says the company will keep the pedal to the metal as it aims to expand up to 2.5K stores from its current level of 1K stores. As for that Best Buy Effect (i.e being a showroom for Internet buyers)? He sees the "touchy-feely" nature of Mattress buyers helping make having big physical stores a bonus. Shares of MFRM +21% since reporting FQ4 earnings earlier this week and +102% since last November's IPO.
