- The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.57, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.42 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
- Despite the weak revenue results, WHR has significantly outperformed against the industry average of 41.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 1.2%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$423.00 million or 88.83% when compared to the same quarter last year. In conjunction, when comparing current results to the industry average, WHIRLPOOL CORP has marginally lower results.
- Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. In comparison to the other companies in the Household Durables industry and the overall market, WHIRLPOOL CORP's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
