However, the S&P 500 index grew 4.6% in the same time frame.That said, let’s take a closer look at the factors impacting the company’s performance.Rising Input Cost a Major BarrierWhirlpool’s operating results continued to be hurt by significant raw material cost inflation.

Over the last 60 days, the company’s Zacks Consensus Estimate of $15.24 and $17.95 for 2018 and 2019 moved south by $1.04 and $1.25, respectively.Wrapping UpAlthough Whirlpool’s strong product pipeline, innovation and other efforts to improve margins remain on track, rising raw material costs have been spoil sport.
