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 MH Market Spotlight Report –

We’ll let the Chinese media video speak for itself.


Then, we’ll simply note that while this trade dispute is far from over, there are a growing number of voices that say it is not only long overdue, that the U.S. is winning it.

The Trump Administration’s Larry Kudlow says the two sides are close to a deal on intellectual theft of American companies, which has been a sticking point.  China is reluctant to admit that it even happens. The hint from President Xi that they will address legitimate concerns is in itself a major verbal concession.

We’ll continue to monitor insights from sources, yes, even from the other side of the world.
