CNBC.com reported that, "Furniture makers got hit hard Wednesday after La-Z-Boy posted weaker than expected results for the quarter and said it was positioned to further “capitalize on any strengthening in the economy, particularly consumer confidence and the housing market.” Though the company failed to acknowledge that was underway.
