TheStreet Ratings rates Whirlpool as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full Whirlpool Ratings Report. See our dividend calendar or top-yielding stocks list.
