CNNmoney1.29.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsLiving in la-la-land is for the birds. This evening’s report is another example of why sourcing across the left-right media divide is not only useful, but necessary for any independent thinker. Our focus this evening will be former Starbucks CEO and billionaire, Howard Schultz’s thoughts on fellow Democrats plans, and why he is willing to run as an independent and not a Democrat.


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 –



On a day when the broader markets rose, and when there were more gainers than losers among manufactured housing industry connected tracked stocks, we look ahead once more to the developing 2020 contest, because of all of the business/economic implications.

Earlier today we published a report that featured extensive thoughts from progressive billionaire George Soros.  That’s linked here.  Interestingly, while Soros is still very much a progressive, on the points made on his recent speech shown in the linked report, the billionaire could have sounded like someone on a Fox News broadcast.

This evening, we’ll return to the stir that’s being caused across the political landscape by billionaire Democrat, Howard Schultz.  He’s also still very much a progressive.  But he lays out the fiscal facts that explain why the plans being floated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), or Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, or Bernie Sanders just won’t work.

While many say Schultz has no chance, the ubiquitous Drudge Report says he does have a path.


Some toplines from CNBC this evening:

  • The billionaire former Starbucks CEO says he could never run for president as a Democrat because the party has moved too far left.
  • If I ran as a Democrat, I would have to say things that I know in my heart I do not believe, and I would have to be disingenuous,” Schultz tells CNBC.
  • Schultz says the nation cannot afford the priorities of the far-left Democrats, including full government-paid health insurance and college tuition.


Schultz said the plans being advocated by some of the far left in the Democratic party would ruin the country.  In ten years, it would be approximately $40 Trillion dollars. The billionaire said the U.S. already has $21½ trillion in debt as a country.

Regarding President Trump’s comments about his possible candidacy?

I’m not trying to win the Twitter primary,” Schultz said.  Does that sound like its on?

The former Starbucks CEO is lining up professionals, per reports, from across the left-right divide that would allow him to run as an independent centrist. Democrats hate him for this, and while some on the right are smiling, others — not so much.


We’ll monitor how that goes, in an emerging field packed with Democratic hopefuls.  See the related reports, linked below.
