First, they take on Potbelly (NASDAQ:PBPB), which dropped big-time on Monday after a Barron's article declared it was "grossly overvalued." Then it's on to Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), which also declined after an analyst stated that he believed the company would not be able to beat estimates this quarter due to weak North American shipments. Finally, shares of Expedia (NASDAQ:EXPE) plummeted on Monday after an analyst downgraded the company from "buy" to "hold"; do Mike and Sean think that's the right call? Find out in the video below!
