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 –



Besides the NAHB’s Jerry Howard and the rest of this panel discussing that’s causing the dip in housing affordability, there is also a discussion about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s housing plan.

 One of the panelists laments rents over 30 percent of income but appears to have an inadequate sense of the law of supply and demand.

As is often the case on such discussion, manufactured housing is not even mentioned.  This is a problem for the industry, which 20 years ago was 1 in 3 new housing starts in many states.  Now, it is more like 1 in 10, even though affordability is an issue.  Manufactured homes are snoring, instead of roaring.

See the related reports for a new set of outlines on causes, effects, and the path toward solutions that will spark more manufactured home industry growth.
