Whirlpool went from a $ 3 Billion company and tremendous cash machine to a $ 18 Billion cash machine in some 20 odd years.... it continues to outperform its competitors big time and continues to improve its global market-share. It is easier to predict long term company performance in the global appliance industry than to predict the outcome of American elections.
Shortof: I disagree with you. That's why it's called "prediction" and not "reality". They assume growth will occur which is possible as the company enters emerging markets' middle class. Forget about the US and Europe
