    • Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR) tumbled 10.8% in today's trade after posted weaker than expected Q3 earnings and cutting its full-year core EPS guidance to $14-$14.25 from $14.25-$14.75.
    • In an interview with Barron's, CEO Jeff Fettig blames the confidence-sapping U.S. election and the plunge in the British pound for WHR’s disappointing quarter, and predicts a swift turnaround for the company.
    • U.S. demand for appliances at all manufacturers (not just at WHR) fell 5% in July and August after rising 5% in H1, which Fettig attributes to the political conventions, which led to "dips in consumer confidence... We think it will dissipate over time, post-election."
    • WHR’s costs in the U.K. jumped because of currency weakness there since Brexit; Fettig says the currency drop and demand weakness caused earnings to fall by $40M, whacking ~$0.40/share from profits.
    • The CEO expects WHR to rebound by adjusting prices in the U.K. to cover higher costs and by presenting new innovative products in North America.
