For a few days, it looked like the market might get back into a “risk on” mood again, favoring growth names regardless of their frothy valuations, at the expense of consumer-oriented stocks regardless of their all-weather reliability.

Better still, some of the most compelling picks from the consumer sectors are still stunningly cheap stocks right now.

Whirlpool Corporation (NYSE:WHR) shares were higher on Monday as the company received an upgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG (ADR) (NYSE:CS) early in the day.

President Trump just announced new steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, The European Union, and Mexico, which are 25% on imported steel and 10% on imported aluminum, and these will take effect at midnight tonight.

Of course this does help U.S. Steel (X) and Alcoa (AA), while seemingly hurting a lot of purchasers of steel and aluminum.
