Sadly enough I am fully invested in WHR, ever since Maytag converted their stock over in 2006. Lost a large portion of my booty last year  >:(

As to would I invest now? Hell, yes! It may not be this low for  some time, and if you have the extra cash go for it.

It would be cool to own some stock whirlpool.

As a technician looking to invest myself I have to wonder what other stock my fellow technicians invest in.

What other stocks you guy's have?

STFC They have a branch office in town.

That's it for me, but I'm really considering buying some whirlpool stock next week.

I have been searching for other appliance manufactures in the stock markets, but have not had much luck.

There seems to be a lot of different LG stock option, as to what one of them manufactures appliances I'm just not sure.

Seems Frigidaire/Electrolux does not have stock.

ok, here is a dumb question for you.

How do you go about buying stock in Whirlpool?
Does it cost a lot to get started?

You can buy them online at places like sharebuilder.com

Or from a local broker.

Whirlpool also has a Direct Stock Purchase Plans or DRIPS.
