The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


One can disagree with or question the ethics or legality of the Warren Buffett moat, while still gaining a tremendous insight from the chairman of Berkshire Hathaway.

Among some of the Buffett/Charlie Munger principles:

He likes a bargain.

He likes industries that make good sense.

He likes companies that are well run.

He plans to invests long term.

With those thoughts, listen to what Bill Gates has to say in this CNBC interview.


Then consider the motivation for Warren Buffett being in manufactured housing.  Alan Amy said it well.
