We have a lot of different answers, although there are several common denominators, each with the unique set of assumptions you have about how these answers should be computed. But to get a fairly good idea, we looked at the two largest furniture-supply companies — John deere & Co. and Kenmore Corporation — and compared their 2013 estimates of sales, earnings, profit margins and market shares. In other words, we compared the sales and earnings of furniture makers based on their own numbers with those of the leading players in each industry.
For John deere, we looked at the company’s revenues, earnings and profit margins, taking into account the various estimates of sales, profits, earnings, sales, income, expenses and market shares for all furniture makers in the U.S. and Canada. For Kenmore, by comparison, we took into account the company’s annual market shares, sales, earnings, profit and profit margin from the same companies.
For example, the following table shows results for the two largest firms based on their estimates of sales, earnings, profit margins and market shares for the various furniture sizes:
