    Select Comfort (SCSS +5.1%) trades higher after SAC Capital discloses in a 13G filing that it raised its stake in the firm to over 5% from a small position held at the end of 2011.

    Sealy's (ZZ -17.9%) nightmare Q4, in which the mattress maker showed weaker sales and margins, prompts a stock downgrade and EPS reduction from Raymond James: "We simply can no longer justify a more optimistic rating given Sealy's deteriorating financial results, highly dilutive capital structure and the strategic uncertainties created by the pending CEO transition."
