Seth,

Thank you for your comments about my blog post about Tempur-Pedic. I agree that many boomers will buy Tempur-Pedic mattresses, but competition in the premium memory foam segment is much fiercer than it was six years ago when Tempur-Pedic began marketing memory foam mattresses. The similarities between Tempur and its competitors has really narrowed, and Tempur, by its own admission, has forecasted much lower sales and revenues over the balance of 2012. For this reason, its stock has plummeted. Furthermore, the mattress market is very crowded and has reached maturity, with slow growth forecasted. The question remains whether Tempur can innovate quickly enough to develop better mattresses that truly differentiate it from competitors. Again,thank you for your comments, and I hope you will continue to visit

Personally i think that when we "the baby boomers" get a little bit older, i believe the sales will continue to rise. I personally own one and love them

Smith,

Yes, Tempur-Pedic has had a great run of growth, but Q1 2012 was way down from forecast, and the balance of the year 2012 does not look so good. Competition is killing them. The company really needs to innovate in such mature, crowded and commoditized market. The clock is ticking. Thanks for your comment, and hope you will visit regularly. Tommy

Smith

This looks like a huge growth. I really like the TEMPUR-Simplicity collection. Thanks for the great post.
