Whirlpool riding on robust figures: The stock of Whirlpool India has emerged as one of the best-performing stocks in the consumer durables segment for 2009. Against an average gain of 75% of Sensex, the company’s stock has more than quadrupled in 2009. While Whirlpool is a household brand in India in white goods segment, the company’s financial performance always left much to be desired. It finally came out of the woods in FY09 and reported over 50% growth in net profit in the past year. With the latest run in the price, the stock is trading near its 15-year high. The P/E ratio is near 18, a bit higher than its average in 2008-09 and it’s no more a value buy. Its future trajectory will depend on its growth plans in the next two quarters, besides the impact of the rising metal prices on its margins.
