Kudlow Says “We Are Crushing It,” Plus Manufactured Housing Market Updates

CNNmoney8.16.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsWe strive for balanced, evidence-based reports. Yesterday evening, readers/viewers tuned into this evening market report to hear what Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren says should become law. It’s her vision for what should be next for the economy, which includes all new regulations. Tonight, we’ll hear what President Trump’s economic advisor, Larry Kudlow has to say, as he runs through the facts that he says are only going to continue to get better.  That’s 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 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.

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 –


With midterms just 81 days out. Both Democrats and Republicans are making their case to voters, right now.

Nate Silver’s respected 535 blog puts the Democratic chances for getting the House back at 70 percent.  Really? Silver missed on who would be POTUS (President of the United States) in 2016, while the Daily Business News correctly projected that Trump could win. That was based on a deep dive into the internals of mainstream media polls and reports.

Many Democrats want to make this November a referendum on the president. Okay. Let’s look at that.

Many discount Rasmussen’s poll, but it’s been reasonably accurate in the recent presidential cycles, per some polling observers. Rasmussen puts the president’s approval at 50 percent, others hover more like 43 percent. Either figure dwarfs the approval level for Congress as a whole, the media, or many other institutions.

Then there are Larry Kudlow’s cogent summary of the facts.

Kudlow said the “single biggest event” of 2018 is “an economic boom that most people thought would be impossible.”

He pointed to a possible 4.3 percent GDP in the third quarter, per the Atlanta Fed.

If it comes down to pay, confidence, and opportunity, the Trump Administration sounds like it is making a case similar to the Reagan era.  Are you better off then you were two years ago?
