Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



Let’s take a break from 2020 politics…

Wage growth is positive. Economic growth will continue, but at a more moderated pace.

Those are some of the top line takeaways from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s comments today.

The broader markets rose, as did many but not all manufactured housing industry tracked stocks.  There are still those who are busy trying to talk the economy into a recession.  Powell’s comments are the latest that would suggest that the indicators don’t reflect that concern.  That should be good news for manufactured housing, and the rest of the economy too.
