Whirlpool CEO Jeff Fettig blamed the confidence-sapping U.S. election and the plunge in the value of the British pound for the companys disappointing third quarter earnings, and predicted that the appliance-makers woes would be short-lived.

Whirlpool shares fell as much as 13% on Tuesday after the company posted earnings per share of $3.66, versus expectations for $3.86, according to FactSet. The company lowered its full-year core EPS guidance to $14-$14.25 from $14.25-$14.75.

In a market like this, a perceived miss means youre gonna have a reaction, he said in an interview with Barrons after earnings were released. Its usually temporary. I suspect this will be as well. At this level were hugely undervalued.

The companys costs in the U.K. jumped because of the weakness of the currency there since Brexit, which made appliances they imported from other countries more expensive (about 85% of the appliances they sell in U.K. are imported). When Whirlpool adjusted by raising prices in Britain, customers initially balked, Fettig said. The currency drop and demand weakness caused earnings to fall by $40 million sapping about 40 cents per share from profits, he said.

    OK, Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) might not be the most popular name after its jaw-dropping accounts scandal, but so what? Its still a quality business with a quality stock.

    Guggenheim’s Eric Wasserstrom and Jeff Cantwell offer four reasons they cut Wells Fargo (WFC) to Sell from Neutral:

    We are downgradingWells Fargo to SELL with a $47 target. Our downgrade reflects: 1) The current share price is now in excess of all of our valuation scenarios, including our 2017, 2018 and Bull Case EPS forecasts. 2) Our 2017E-18E EPS remain 5% below consensus, reflecting our outlook for higher legal and compliance costs as a result of the remediation of the company’s disclosed fraudulent retail account activity. 3) While the shares’ valuation remain modestly below its historical level relative to the peer group, we believe our outlook for earnings compression should truncate further revaluation. 4) We also believe that some of the stock’s recent multiple expansion reflects the view thatWells Fargo may face less legal risk from the Dept. of Justice in the incoming presidential administration; in contrast, we believe the DoJ will actively pursue post-financial crisis malfeasance like that disclosed at Wells Fargo.

    Shares of Wells Fargo have dropped 2.2% to $52.08 at 2:17 p.m. today, while the SPDR S&P Bank ETF (KBE) has risen 0.1% to $40.05, and the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) has fallen 0.7% to $22.06.

    Who is “the market” and how does it “want” to go down? Where’s the commandment that says stocks have to go lower? Who decides that today people who own stocks are by and large going to lose money? And why, of all things, does the market not want to go higher? Didn’t the CEO of the biggest bank, JPMorgan (JPM) , say things are great? Didn’t Wells Fargo (WFC) , after all of that scandal, still show some growth, a sign that it is putting the rough patch behind it? Didn’t Citigroup (C) have its best quarter in years? Wasn’t PNC Financial (PNC) even better, clear triumphs on every single line item? The word “perfect” comes to mind, as in Perfect National Corp. (Wells Fargo and Citigroup are part of TheStreet’s Action Alerts PLUS portfolio.)
