Drone Downed, U.S. Counter Paused, American Oil Refinery Blast, Social Media Raises Concerns – Plus, Manufactured Home Stock Updates

CNNmone6.21.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere is no evidence mentioned at this time in mainstream media that the blast and blaze at a Philadelphia oil refinery has any ties to terror. That doesn’t keep social media from lighting up with speculation on that very topic. Facts and speculation are two distinct things. Our report this evening will be on the oil blast, blaze and its expected. On a day when most manufactured home tracked stocks slid, we’ll take a look at reports about the MH-industry critical topic of oil.


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 below, after 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.

Today’s markets and stocks snapshot, at the closing bell…



Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Photo from local media as shown at the top right.

The Brunswick News reported about two hours ago that “Deputy Fire Commissioner Craig Murphy says the blaze at Philadelphia Energy Solutions started in a tank that holds a mix of propane and butane.

Left-of-center CNBC reported:

· A series of explosions tears through a Philadelphia gasoline refinery, the East Coast’s largest, just as the busy summer driving season was beginning.

· Five minor injuries were reported.

· Gasoline futures prices jump.

As we’ve noted previously on the Daily Business News on MHProNews, fuel prices can have a significant impact on the cost of manufactured housing.

Our prior reports, linked below, on the impact and wrinkles on the oil-Iranian issues stand, with this caveat. If – God forbid – terror attacks were to start on U.S. or other significant global refineries, Katy bar the doors.

As someone who speaks Farsi, this is why the West should not allow Iran to ever have a nuclear weapons.
