The Biggest Earnings News from Tuesday, Oct. 22

In today's episode of Consumer Countdown, host Mark Reeth is joined by consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly to discuss all the latest earnings news.

They start with a look at Coach , which was down on the news that profits and revenue came in lower than expected due to a weak North American market. Then, Sean takes a crack at RadioShack , which reported earnings that one headline described as "worse than awful."

After that, Mike examines Kimberly-Clark's  earnings and is encouraged about the company's future. And finally, Sean discusses Whirlpool's very strong quarter, and where he thinks the company is heading.
