If Dems Seriously Want Senate, Texans Beto O’Rourke vs Ted Cruz Key Contest, Plus MH Market Updates

CNNmoney9.18.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsLet’s note that new tariffs between China and the U.S. today still witnessed a strong day on Wall Street. There’s growing signs that the market is ‘getting it’ on the “America First,” POTUS Trump trade battle. That said, let’s pivot to a key Senate contest. If Democrats are going to do more than talk about trying to capture the U.S. Senate in the upcoming midterms, they will have to go through Texas. Democrat Beto O’Rourke has had a ton of money pouring in. Will that make the difference? The latest will be our spotlight this evening.

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 –


The Fort Worth, TX Star Telegram has two brief videos that give each of the two major Senate Candidates their respective say.

Beto O’Rourke


Ted Cruz


In spite of what Representative O’Rourke (D) said, the big money is actually more on his side of the aisle. Some of the world’s richest people are pro-Democratic, and those Democratic billionaires support that party with their wallets and with their considerable influence.

Much of the mainstream media has hyped this as a looming upset.  But the latest polling by Quinnipiac University, which routinely tilt’s left, shows the Democratic O’Rourke 9 points behind the incumbent Cruz.  Per Quinnipiac, Cruz gets the nod from 54 percent of likely voters, versus 45 percent for the Democratic challenger.

The Daily Business News on MHProNews has noted in editorial analysis that Democrats pledge to reverse tax cuts, and want to impeach the president, even though there is no material evidence after two years of investigations of alleged ‘collusion’ between his campaign and Russia. In the upcoming book, Fear, but reporter Bob Woodward, he shook the tree for any sign of any collusion.  He’s in that anti-Trump orbit, and said he found no evidence.  But as MHProNews has reported for over a year, the alleged ‘collusion’ is not a crime.

With 7 weeks until the midterms, it will be all about turnout.  The left is loud, and has a wide array of mainstream news and social media support that creates an echo chamber effect.  But with black, Hispanic, women, Asian unemployment at record low levels, and more blacks and Hispanics saying the favor President Trump and his policies, can it be as bad as some tilted polling suggests?

Record consumer and small business confidence should play to the President Trump’s favor, and he’s proven he has coattails for candidates he supports.

It will be an exciting ride in the next 7 weeks.  Don’t just stay tuned, share the information that will cause the undecided to get out and vote for more growth. See the related report, linked below.

The Masthead

There are some who can’t win based upon sound reason and the truth. So, to obtain their goals, they lie, play act, and deceive others to get what they want. That pattern impacts independent businesses, our industry’s home owners and millions of potential customers.
