Whirlpool Corp. Research Report

Whirlpool will be reaffirming its full year 2013 outlook on its upcoming
investor conferences, after reporting Q4 results with 40 percent less profit
year over year though lower costs and higher prices brought income growth to
its appliance business. The company expects 2013 earnings per share to come in
at $9.80 to $10.30 and adjusted earnings of $9.25 to $9.75, both beating Wall
Street estimates, as well as a 2 percent increase in industry-wide shipments
of appliances from manufacturers. Whirlpool says the improving US housing
market and sales growth in developing markets are fueling the high forecast.
Meanwhile, the company reached a new 52-week high of $116 per share this week,
before climbing up 2.63 percent to $117.36. The Street rates Whirlpool as a
"buy," citing strengths in return on equity, debt management, and stock price
performance. The Full Research Report on Whirlpool Corp. - including full
