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 –



A 127,000 square-foot Skyline Champion Corporation plant is slated to open in January 2019, with an anticipated production launch in the spring. The idle facility is being retooled and configured and will include some new innovative production techniques, including automation,” said their press release via Berkshire Hathaway owned Business Wire to the Daily Business News on MHProNews.

It’s an honor to be the only operating manufactured housing facility in the state of Louisiana,” said Keith Anderson, Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to bring our high-quality, cost-effective homes to an even wider customer base, as well as to offer the exceptionally skilled local workforce with hundreds of new jobs.”

The facility’s location will allow us to provide better value due to reduced transportation for the future homebuyers of Louisiana, east Texas, south Arkansas and south Mississippi,” said Wade Lyall, Vice President of the Southern Region. “We are strongly committed to providing affordable housing to the residents of this great state and we look forward to building long-lasting relationships with the City of Leesville, the Louisiana Economic Development Corporation, local Retailers, and the LA Housing Commission.”
