Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

What we learn from history is that people don’t learn from history.”

Warren Buffett,
Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway. Parent to Clayton Homes, industry lenders, retailers, and suppliers.

It’s been 30 years today since one of the biggest market crashes, ever.


Let’s begin with an extended quote, from Newsmax today.

NewsMaxLogoDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsThirty years ago, before heading to work at the New York Stock Exchange, Peter Kenny left his home in lower Manhattan and made a detour to the nearby Our Lady of Victory church to pray to St. Jude, the Roman Catholic patron saint of desperate and lost causes.

The reason was the stock market crash known as “Black Monday” on October 19, 1987.

“Blessed mother get me through this,” he prayed.

Kenny, now senior market strategist at Global Markets Advisory Group in New York, was a newly minted member of the New York Stock Exchange, having joined the exchange in February that year. He was stunned by the events that unfolded the previous day, the worst trading day in U.S. history.

“I don’t think anyone was prepared for what actually transpired in the overseas markets, which led to the bloodbath on Monday,” said Kenny.

When it was over, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had lost 22.6 percent in one day, equivalent to a drop of about 5,200 points in the index today. The benchmark U.S. S&P 500 index plunged 20.5 percent on Black Monday, equal to a drop of over 520 points today, and the Nasdaq dropped 11.4 percent, comparable to a drop of about 750 points.

In 1987 U.S. stock prices had climbed steadily all year, as they have in 2017, with each of the three major U.S. indexes hitting record highs in late August. But September turned into a difficult month, with each index falling more than 2.0 percent, though not by enough to raise alarm bells among investors.

But as the calendar flipped to October, the selling in U.S. equity markets intensified. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 fell more than 9.0 percent in the week before Black Monday.

On the morning of Monday, October 19, 1987, Art Hogan, then a floor broker at the Boston Stock Exchange, expected a possible rebound for stock prices. Nothing had prepared him for what was to unfold.

“It was clear in that first hour… this was going to be as bad as we’ve seen in our lifetimes,” said Hogan, now chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities in New York.

Hillary Clinton, left, Warren Buffett, right. Credit – Boston Globe.  But Buffett’s stock has soared since the Trump victory.  

Now, the shocking truth is that several times in the life time of every 40+ American, we’ve seen the markets and economy upended.

What we will posit today, that will tee up that upcoming report is that history could be repeating, if policy makers fail to do what’s necessary.

Watch for that upcoming, MHProNews Special Report, because it’s our country, and our money.


I will tell you how to become rich. Close the doors. Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful.” – Warren Buffett.

What we learn from history is that people don’t learn from history.” – Warren Buffett, Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway. Parent to Clayton Homes, industry lenders, retailers, and suppliers.
