CNNmoney10.18.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsPresident Donald J. Trump may be the most media accessible president in decades. There are times he is direct. There are other times he plays the hinting game.  Has the mainstream media missed what could be the biggest economic and political change in over a century, should the Trump-GOP prove successful in holding the House and Senate?  That will be our focus for 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 –


It’s a fact.

Many in the media are either flatly opposed to the president and/or they simply don’t get him.  That’s not to say that anyone, including MHProNews, is going to be right all of the time.  But are there hints that the president made in recent interviews?

Could financial system changes be coming that will upend the Federal Reserve system after the midterms?

In the interview below, the president takes dead aim at the FED as being the biggest threat to his otherwise successful economic progress. The interview covers several topics, not just the Fed.



But some may not realize that the Federal Reserve system, which is now over a century old, has arguably not achieved its stated purposes.  There are voices in Washington that wanted investigations and change for years, like Congressman Ron Paul.

Senator Rand Paul is cut from that same bolt of cloth as his father. MHProNews will plan a special report on this issue.

Suffice it to say for now, that if the GOP proves successful, there are reasons to believe that the president will lay out a bold new vision that could borrow some historic pages.  If so, lending could change dramatically for the federal government and for the nation.

Stay tuned.
