Global Economy?: How's Whirlpool & Electrolux Doing?



July 16, 2009 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: WHR

Want to know how the Global Economy is doing?

GE?  Nope..not going to give you a clue...

AAPL?   Nope...Selling iPhones and MACs does not represent anything but iPhones and MACs.

GOOG?  Sorry, Companys advertiisng or not advertising is not a measure of Global Economic Status.  Neither is selling G1 or G2 phones.

WHR and Electrolux?  *Bingo!*  If Whirlpool's share price is doing well then the Global Economy is doing well.  Which ever direction (WHR) and Electrolux go indicates the direction YOU should go.


WHR has multiple namebrands reaching nearly all countries if not every single country on the planet.  Selling home appliance products is the #1 determining factor in how Home Depot and Lowe's are doing (Retail sector), or how the Housing Market is doing, or how Manufacturing and Industiral is doing...

Lots of commodities are involved in Home Appliances....  Trains transport the commodities which in turn are used to build more Home Appliances....

The Energy Market?  Home Appliances have that in spades as they continue to meet Energy Star mandates for more Energy Efficient and Water Usage efficient standards.

Every FACET of the economy is wrapped up in 2 Stocks that you should track at all times whether invested in them or not.... They are DE-FACTO  Watch List staples.....

So?  Why not take a peak at WHR and Electrolux if you don't know how they are doing today to see for yourself....See if the Global Economy is recovering just with 1...ok make that 2 glances.

Using GE as a barometer is sooooooo 2007...  Right now GE is basically trading alongside the Financial sector.  It's not trading along with Whirlpool and Electrolux today or at all ever.

Dipping your hands in every sector of the economy does not mean anything other than a confusing mess of a company.

That's why GE is not a measurement to follow anymore.
