DowJones12.08.2020ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesBroaderMarketSnapshotEarlier today, William “Bill” Boor, President and CEO led Cavco Industries was the subject of an in-depth report linked here. This evening’s report will be a more focused look at the headline topics, drawing from the in-depth statements and investor relations information Cavco (NASDAQ:CVCO) has published and provided.

There are advantages potential advantages to both pithy as well as longform journalism and reports. This report will compliment our prior ones while illustrating that point.

Boor’s LinkedIn profile reveals that he is not from the manufactured housing industry. Depending on the support from his team, that may or may not be a significant issue.WilliamBillBoorPhotoPresidentCEOCavcoIndustiresLogoLinkedInProfileProfessionalBioManufacturedHousingMHProNews

Boor’s profile makes it clear that he is a seasoned business leader reportedly with an Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) in general business management from Harvard Business School.

In last night’s and this morning report, Boor’s quote shown below makes the claim that the business and/or the industry are well positioned for future growth.


In support of that statement, Boor pointed to several factors, including the one below.


Cavco’s new 2020 Investor Relations presentation makes similar points.  See these November 2020 Cavco Investor Relations PowerPoint slides that follow.

MHProNews would editorially concur with the thrust of these statements from the Cavco Industries November 2020 investor presentation, which sum up several reports publishing here and on MHLivingNews in recent years.


Those two Cavco slides help tee up the balance of this evening’s report which will be our featured focus segment tonight. New readers, note that the featured focus follows the quotable quotes, left-right mainstream news headline recaps, and two of our three market summary graphics at 4 PM ET.

Quotes That Shed Light – American Social, Industry, National Issues…

When MHI or others claim that progress is being made on DTS, just ponder what Skyline Champion’s President and CEO Mark Yost had to say.



Understanding media bias is useful to sifting through possibly hidden agendas.
Mark Yost’s comments stand in stark contrast to Bill Boor’s, quoted above.

Featured Focus –
Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet


For several years, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), as well as other voices in manufactured housing both in and out of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) have said that more personal property or “chattel” or home-only lending is necessary. MHProNews and our MHLivingNews sister site have made that case too.

It just so happens that Cavco’s new investor presentation makes a similar point.


MHARR and others have also made the case that improved zoning and placement would literally open up more opportunities for sales. Similar points have been made by others.

Again, Cavco’s investor relations packet has made a similar point.

Re: Urban infill, this is a point that numerous MHProNews, MHLivingNews, and some MHARR reports have promoted for years.

In a fascinating statement for those with an eye on trends and history, Boor touted the pointed in his earnings call with investor/analysts that lower rates have been driving more sales. Boor specifically mentioned lower rates on manufactured home “home-only” – a.k.a. personal property or chattel loans – which MHARR has said makes up about 77 percent of all loan originations in manufactured housing.


In just a few slides and pull quotes, Boor has perhaps inadvertently made the arguments that MHARR has been promoting for years.

But that begs the question. Why, when Cavco Industries prior chairman, president, and CEO Joseph “Joe” Stegmayer was the Chairman of the Board of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) Executive Committee, did Cavco not aggressively push for the full and proper implementation of DTS on all manufactured housing? Why has there instead been a nonsensical push for lending on the Clayton-Cavco-Skyline Champion back “CrossModTM homes?”

Additionally, when Tim Williams of 21st Mortgage Corporation ended FHA Title I lending by his firm, and more recently said that he was glad that the Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE) chattel pilot program had failed, why didn’t Cavco howl in protest?


Given that Cavco’s Boor as well as their investor relations presentation deck have both made a solid case for why the items pushed by MHARR as obvious would benefit the entire industry, why has Cavco – or others at MHI – not joined hands to promote that together in Washington? After all, MHI, MHARR, and the Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA) – plus others – previously worked together to successfully promote the passage of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act.

This was a document from a tipster. The illustrations are by MHProNews, but the base document used to be on MHI’s website. See deeper dive report, linked here, on the topic of the MHI and the legal principle of manufactured housing enhanced preemption. 

The possible answer to these questions are troubling. At a minimum, they should be a red flag to industry professionals, investors, and others.

Not long after making this comment, Matchneer – who through the law firm that employed him periodically served MHI – separated from that firm with little explanation.


As the SEC pushes ahead with Wells Notices, it will be interesting to see what unfolds at Cavco. Logically, it may not be a surprise if they face at least one more hit on their share value. Why is Cavco planning to buy back stock instead of push for the implementation of options that would open up more opportunities in manufactured housing — using the very ideas noted and linked from this report?


Given that is supported by the thrust of Cavco’s leadership and IR presentation claims, from MHProNews’ expert perspective and a common sense look at their own statements, it seems that an argument exists that Cavco is failing their investors on several levels.
