Whirlpool Corp (WHR-N) has seen a mixed trend in recent years, with a historic downtrend but a recent uptick in price. While it offers a attractive dividend yield and reasonable cash flows, its declining equity balance, increasing debt levels, and flat sales raise concerns. Some experts see it as a potential buying opportunity if the economy does well, while others view it as a pandemic play that overcorrected and still offers value at its current valuation. Overall, the stock seems to have potential but also carries certain risks.

Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

WHR has largely been on a downtrend since mid-2021, however, since late 2023, its price has been trending up. It pays a nice dividend of 6%, but sales have been largely flat over the past several years, and its debt levels have crept up (3.8X net debt/EBITDA). Its free cash flows are OK, but it is drawing from its cash balance to pay down debt and service dividends. As a result, its equity balance has been declining over the years. It trades at a cheap valuation, but this is likely reflecting its weakening results. As an income name, we think it is OK, but we are not overly excited by the name here.

Stay-at-home impact wore off. Mismanagement plus bad luck. Inexpensive 7x earnings, speculative buying opportunity if economy does well. Don't bet the farm. It will either be a win or a loss. Great dividend yield of 6.5%. Alluring, but 80% payout ratio, so be careful. If not working out, hit the exit quickly.

PARTIAL BUY
Whirlpool Corp

Bought this last May. A pandemic play that overcorrected after the pandemic as if the consumer was going to die. It didn't. It's down 20% recently on weak guidance. But she added shares today. Trades at 7x PE, pays a 7% dividend, makes $16 EPS to cover a $7 dividend, and their inventory is returning to normal a lot faster than they expected. Will buy more tranches if this declines more.

They report Thursday. It's been a dog because higher rates have dampened renovations, but if they sell their European business this will be a huge buy.

AHY: Accidental high-yielding stocks that have fallen so far that their dividends now pay huge. Are struggling as the housing market peaks. Their most recent quarter was ugly. Pays nearly 4% in dividends and doing massive share buybacks. Are selling their lagging European business.

Sales slightly disappointed, but management said it would sell its ailing European business. Shares dipped on the former news, then rose on the latter. A great brand name, are buying back shares (and maybe more), good balance sheet, trades under 7x earnings and pays nearly a 4% dividend. They have intrinsic value, according to Warren Buffet.

It's not a value trap. They couldn't make all the machines they wanted, but this will be fine when they catch up on production. It trades at 6x earnings and pays a 4% dividend.

JPMorgan just upgraded it to a top pick. She doesn't doesn't know why it's a hated stock. She finds it cute. They have pricing power even with steel costs rising while their last report was impressive. They are buying back $2 billion more shares. They boast a high-single digit PE. For all these reasons, she really likes it.

JPMorgan just upgraded it January's chart was similar: trapped below its 100-day moving average, and when it broke out, it jumped 25% from the low of that average, up to its next high. Whirlpool is up 23% YTD.

It depends on the continued DIY trade by homeowners and the hot housing market. JPMorgan just downgraded it.

JPMorgan just upgraded it to a top pick. It's hated because it has no earnings growth. It trades at a 10x PE. He targets $280 at a 12x PE.

A superb CEO he believes in, and WHR enjoys a strong back order of product.

Watch for a pullback in the DIY Bull market leading up to the Nov. 3 vote: It trades above a 12x PE and just reported a Q3 earnings and revenue beat. Aside from making home improvements, people will also buy household appliances like washing machines during this stay-at-home trend that he expects to continue beyond Covid.
