CNNmoney10.15.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe federal government has closed the books on their 2018 fiscal year. It made headlines, with more red ink than any year since 2012.  That and some comments on retail numbers will be our featured report this evening.

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


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 –

Reuters reports that “The U.S. federal government closed the 2018 fiscal year $779 billion in the red as tax cuts hit revenues and the government paid more to service a growing national debt, according to Treasury Department data released on Monday.” That’s for a 12 month period the largest since 2012, and of course some are blaming the tax cuts.

That said, interest rates are rising, which means that a larger share of federal tax dollars are going to debt service.

Further, tax collections of individual rates are actually at a historic high, after the tax cuts.

The pattern is already akin to what occurred during the Kennedy and Reagan administrations.  A discussion of some of the economic numbers is in the video below.
