CNNmoney11.23.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsElections, monopolies, public policy, and repeatedly misleading mainstream media reports all have consequences. The Dow and other markets tumbled again on a short Black Friday trading session, and that will be our focus report, further below.

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.

CNBC, as well as other money and market media, often get the facts right.  What is sometimes more problematic is the why behind their who, what, and when.

The economy and Trump administration policies are sound, as a report earlier today reflects.

The Fed, a steady drum beat of negative media, under-reported moves by major players, and recent election results are all among the contributing factors to the recent market declines.
