Why Whirlpool Stock Gained 15% in November
Demitrios Kalogeropoulos, The Motley FoolMotley FoolDecember 6, 2018, 2:25 PM GMT. What happened. Shares of home appliance specialist Whirlpool (NYSE: WHR) beat the market last month, posting a 15% increase compared to a 1.8% uptick in the S&P 500, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The rally erased just a portion of the stock's recent losses, and Whirlpool remains lower by more than 25% so far in 2018. November's boost came as investors continued to digest Whirlpool's third-quarter report, which was released late in the previous month.
