Today’s markets and stocks, at the closing bell…



Manufactured Housing Composite Value (MHCV)


Today’s Big Movers

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – 

Crude continues to rise, which of course drives all prices, including that of conventional and manufactured housing. But that rise is also fueling, pardon the pun, the growth in the U.S. domestic drilling, refining and exporting industries.

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan told Fox News that much of the the economic stability of the U.S. is due to the extraordinary rise of domestic crude oil production.

U.S. oil production is booming, and oil exports are following. In its latest weekly update, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported:

  • that oil refining hit its highest level on record last week.
  • U.S. crude exports surged to a record 1.76 million barrels per day (bpd) in April.
  • This is a big change for a country that just a few years ago wasn’t exporting any crude.
  • Part of the driving force behind the decision to restart exports in 2016, following a ban in 1975 to export was the shale oil boom.
  • The U.S. has turned into a major oil producer.
  • The U.S. is producing oil at a record pace of 10.9 million bpd, a level which it first reached earlier in June.

The oil boom is good for the U.S. economy. “The second quarter is going to be a very strong quarter. One of the leading indicators of this is the extraordinary rise in crude oil production,” said former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday.

I’ve been following the oil industry back to year one, and, I’ve never seen anything rushed this fast, he added. Fracking has made extraordinary changes in crude oil production and our output (of oil) is now close to the highest (in the world),” Greenspan said.

The increase in U.S. production comes while oil prices have rallied to multi-year highs as production in Venezuela has tumbled amid an economic crisis. Further, the U.S. is pressing its allies to halt oil imports from Iran.
