NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- While S&P 500 companies are on pace to reach record earnings, with more than 70% reporting above the consensus estimates, not everything is rosy.
At least not according to at least one major consumer appliances manufacturer -- Whirlpool (Fortune 500).,
Whirlpool's shares plunged 12% this morning after the company announced job cuts, a plant closure and slashed its earnings outlook.
Another stock that is getting shredded today is Coinstar (). The owners of the DVD and BlueRay disk rental kiosks Redbox beat the earnings estimates for Q3, but revenues fell short of expectations.
Coinstar also guided earnings and sales below the consensus for next quarter and announced a 20% in increase for DVD rentals.
Meanwhile, Las Vegas Sands's latest results proved that the casino business is alive and well, not only in Asia, but also here in the U.S. LVS (Fortune 500) reported a 26% increase in revenue, 43% growth in earnings and higher margins.,
