On a long-term technical basis the shares have a large bearish pattern on the weekly chart, a double top. The major initial downside objective for this pattern is at the $125 area. This is the base of the mid-portion of the familiar "M" shape of the double top. On negative news, it is possible that that area could be tested once again. A move below the $125 area would set the shares on a path to long-term bearish for price trend. On better news, the $147.50 area would be initial resistance. On an increasing scale of positive surprise, next upside objectives would be at $151.84 and $156.66.

06:47 EDTWHRWhirlpool seeking ban on class action lawsuits over Energy Star, NY Times says
Whirlpool is asking Congress to ban class action lawsuits related to Energy Star, a federal program that is supposed to identify products that are energy efficient, according to The New York Times. The company is threatening to withdraw from the program is such a bill isn't passed, the newspaper stated. Class action lawsuits were filed against Whirlpool and other companies after it was revealed that many products identified as energy efficient by the program did not deserve the designation, the newspaper stated. A member of Congress whose district includes several Whirlpool factories has introduced legislation that would prohibit class action lawsuits related to Energy Star if the EPA makes its own remedies for the oversights, The Times reported.
