(Reuters) - Whirlpool Corp
Whirlpool has been wrestling with the impact of U.S. tariffs on imported steel and aluminium, both major components in its appliances, pushing the company to raise prices.
Excluding items, the company earned $4.01 per share for the second quarter ended June 30, above analysts' average estimate of $3.71, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
Sales rose 0.9% to $5.19 billion, while analysts were expecting $5.02 billion.
The company raised its full-year adjusted earnings forecast to between $14.75 and $15.50 per share from its prior outlook of between $14 and $15 per share.
