A look back at the way things have taken shape over the course of the past few weeks indicates that consumer-oriented and safe-haven names have actually done rather well, while growth names haven’t. Better still, some of the most compelling picks from the consumer sectors are still stunningly cheap stocks right now.

Shares of Whirlpool Corp. sank 5.4% to pace the industrial sector decliners, after J.P. Morgan downgraded the home appliances maker, citing risks to growth and margins from continued weakness in appliance industry shipments. The stock was on track for its lowest close since Feb. 11, 2013. Analyst Michael Rehaut cut his rating to neutral after being at overweight since March 2016. He said U.S. Core 6 appliance industry shipments have remained consistently weak over the last several months, declining by an average of 5% year-over-year over the last five months through August, which would put year-to-date industry shipments down 1% versus Whirlpool's outlook for full-year growth of 1% to 2%. "As a result, we believe downside risk exists to [Whirlpool's] industry outlook as well as its North America margins due to reduced production levels and a potentially more competitive industry backdrop resulting from reduced demand as well as possibly pricing power," Rehaut wrote in a note to clients. The stock, which was the biggest decliner in the SPDR Industrial Select Sector ETF on Tuesday, has tumbled 31% over the past three months, while the industrial ETF has gained 6.2% and the S&P 500 has edged up 3.5%.
