October Jobs “Astonishing” Report, Mark Levin on Midterms, and MH Market Updates.

CNNmoney11.2.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere are two videos this evening, and the one that we think is the most fun is the one with Mark Levin.  When he’s doing the interviewing, he’s often laid back.  When Levin is doing the talking, he’s often on-fire.  This is the later, insightful and passionate. Those will be our focus this evening, on a down day on Wall Street, another wrinkle ahead of the midterms.


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 belowafter 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 –

Is this deja vu for Team Trump? That’s Truman holding a newspaper in 1948 that incorrectly said that his opponent, Dewey, won. So surprises on election day and fake news isn’t so new?

There are two videos this evening, and the one that we think is the most fun is the one with Mark Levin.  When he’s doing the interviewing, he’s often laid back.  When Levin is doing the talking, he’s often on-fire.  This is the later, insightful and passionate. Those will be our focus this evening, on a down day on Wall Street, another wrinkle ahead of the midterms.

In America, people can vote pretty much any way they want to, it doesn’t have to be based upon logic. In fact, emotional voting is pretty common.  ‘I like how the candidate looks,’ ‘I like how the candidate sounds,’ or ‘I don’t like how that person tweets.’  Whatever.

But results are what should count for investors and professionals.

Let’s start with the October Jobs report.

Kevin Hassett, head of the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, called the totals astonishing.” That’s because there were two hurricanes during the reporting period.  Every sector of the economy picked up jobs, even retail, which has been struggling. Per Fox,The Labor Department said U.S. employers created 250,000 jobs in October, far more than the 190,000 economists had expected.”

Here are the numbers.


Mark Levin has his own radio, and two TV shows. Here’s his take on what’s at stake in the midterm elections.
