    CFRA raised target to $270 with a buy rating today. Buy as much as you can. IMO more upgrades will follow.
  • B
    Well, this is areal quiet board for earnings day... Let's go to the moon...ha ha.
  • i
    hahahaha- crushed earnings, will pop in am -like most stocks that crush earnings- backlog with 2 million new homes needed- should be good for awhile plus covid is not gone yet- looks like a money maker for a year or two. imo

    I would expect this year to be down significantly. WHR is dealing with the same issues many manufacturers are facing. Commodity inflation, know domestic Metal is currently at it's highest in human history with no signs of weakening in the next quarter.

    WHR is expecting $1B loss this year in inflation, as reported in their earnings. This will be more than 2x the largest inflationary hit they have taken in a single year.

    If consumer spend starts to drop WHR could be in big trouble, as it gets squeezed from the bottom-line and the top.

    The successful price increases WHR has passed through will now make their way to the average consumer. These increases, may be the additional pressure that causes consumer spend to drop.

    This is a very tense time in the commodity markets. As stated before Commodity Inflation has blown pass historical records. The cause is not so much increase in demand as decrease in supply (COVID Manufacturing slowdown had major impact, Steel Mills in USA dropped >35% production and are taking their time to increase capacity, keeping prices high). Global allocation prevents import penetration, coupled with 232 Tarriff. Because imports are weak, domestic mills are able to keep prices high through capacity manipulation/keeping supply low.

    Market is tense right now. If end users cannot handle inflationary prices their will be a correction in industrial companies.

    (Above is my opinion, I trade metal futures for a Fortune 500 acquisition company and get to see a unique side of Industrial OEMs).

    WHR 37 year HIGH. PE PEG PS cash 3 billion plus in the bank. dividend bargain territory. It’s a double plus from here time is on your side
  • C
    Is this stock a good choice to hedge against inflation?

    WHR Market cap should be $22 bil within 12 months or $370/shr. Forward P/E 8. 200% cheaper than the SP 500. $2 bil shr buyback plus an outstanding dividend yield. Global mortgage rates low for a year or two plus AIRBNB VRBO.

    They crushed a very high bar and it's not in the stock price.

    This is a great company with a low PE and a solid amount of demand

    Insanity at it's best. So the real question is how many washer, dishwashers, microwaves- machines are people going to buy? I don't think so. Summer 2021 I think people will get out and take a vacation post vaccine.... What do you think, a huge sell in may and go away?

    Congrats to all shareholders who bought in under $100 per share. You are now earning north of 5.6 % annually.

    Remember what I said that at Churchill Swartz we really don't care about any earnings, just look at (WHR) they crushed their earnings but it's not to our advantage to let them share rise cause then we don't get the option premiums you guys paid for it's a simple as that, that's our money you have to say goodbye to that money the minute you buy the option 9 times out of 10, Bam, Bam.

    Wall Street mo..... sell the news, chase out weak hands.... wash rinse repeat. I look for a slow build this afternoon ending day in the green. Maybe a 240-245 close on Friday, unfortunately the 250 calls will be zero. Sorry, been there done that, good luck.

    $23/sh is what management is forecasting for this year. Multiply that by a reasonably low PE of 14 and you get $322 per share for WHR. The PE could easily expand with the predicted growth and we all know management sandbags the predictions. I'll say $400 may be in the cards in a year to a year and a half. The results and call were all very bullish.

    Ummm, am I too late to start a position? I've noticed stores have low stock and no appliances are on sale. With interest rates going up that cuts into the dividend. Also own ERJ as an industrial. I know I wouldn't be buying at a discount at these prices, but I'm not sure what else to buy for further industrial exposure. What do you think?
  • W
    Already PEAKED, very pricy, like all stocks
  • M
    i mean.. do i hold my 250 calls expiring tmrw? im down a bunch.
  • B
    Looks like tomorrow will be a good day. Nice pull back, but still in uptrend kick up in volume as we hit the trough of the day.
  • H
    Sure. They missed revenue by a lot, and yet....the stock is up almost 7% in AH. The casino is alive and well.
