My wife owns a decorating business. For her upscale clients she always chooses Hooker furniture. I've looked at the product, it is so much better than most of the Chinese-made crap the other companies sell.
I thing when an article stating the TV show that re-does homes for poor people uses HOFT combine with the fact that the do pay a dividend makes it somewhat of a safe long term stock. I have a few shares and plan to hold for at least 24 months. with low rates lots of people borrow for furniture they do not need but its the finance company that gets shorted if they dont pay I plan to hold - good luck
