Oh, Coronavirus – Markets Bounce – As New U.S. Cases, Deaths Rise Sharply? Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones3.2.2020ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesBroaderMarketSnapshotFor those who digest volumes of news, academic, research and other reports, there are some events that on the surface seem self-contradictory. Last week, MHProNews reported that Warren Buffett buddy and fellow uber-billionaire Bill Gates was warning that the coronavirus was a “once-in-a-century pathogen we’ve been worried about.” Gates added that “I hope it’s not that bad, but we should assume it will be until we know otherwise.”

Today we’re spotlighting a statement made on Fox Business by “Infectious disease specialist Dr. Matt McCarthy discusses the spread of coronavirus in the U.S.” The short version is that this expert says there are thousands of undetected cases in the country. More new cases plus the first U.S. deaths are being reported. But stocks rose sharply? Let’s peek at this mysterious phenomenon in our feature focus tonight.

Periodic readers of this business-nightly feature should note there are new tweaks to some of the standard portions of our evening market/investing report. Read carefully as some changes of the ‘standard text’ that follows before our left-right headlines and also in other features near the end of tonight’s reports.

Every evening our headlines that follow provide snapshots from two major media outlets on each side of the left-right news spectrum that reflect topics that influence or move investor sentiment. In moments on this business evening report, you can get ‘insights-at-a-glance.’

This report also sets the broader context for manufactured housing markets, in keeping with our mantra, “News through the lens of manufactured homes and factory-built housing” ©.

We begin with headlines left-of-center CNN followed by right-of-center Fox Business. We share closing tickers and other related data courtesy of Yahoo Finance, and more. 5 to 10 minutes reading this MHProNews market report every business night could save you 30 minutes to an hour of similar reading or fact-gathering elsewhere.

Perhaps more important, you will get insights about the industry from experts that care, but also dare to challenge the routine narrative that arguably keeps manufactured housing underperforming during an affordable housing crisis.

Understanding media bias is useful to sifting through possibly hidden agendas. We are mindful of the ancient and tested principle of separating the wheat from the chaff.

Featured Focus – Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet


File this evening’s observations under the category of something strange that is worth monitoring.

Fox Business is a reliably right-of-center, often pro-President Donald J. Trump network. So that should be born in mind when they interviewed “Infectious disease specialist Dr. Matt McCarthy discusses the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. and how to prioritize the relief effort.”

How many Americans will catch coronavirus?

Infectious disease specialist Dr. Matt McCarthy discusses the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. and how to prioritize the relief effort.

There are growing expectations that the Federal Reserve will step in and cut rates, which investors of course like.

But the news about the coronavirus itself, impacts on industries such as hospitality, travel, restaurants and others is not different now than last week. The outlook may arguably be worse. Some stocks benefit from such a health scare, others will be harmed.

But what might be different is the notion advanced in our prior report.

“Be Greedy When Others are Fearful” – Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Follow the Money, plus Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

Having public called out Berkshire Hathaway board member Ronald Olson, J.D., spotlighting board member Bill Gates comments, and then the sharp rebound in the markets today merits a close look when this quarter’s reporting is completed as to who bought the dip.

It could, of course, all be a coincidence. Reasonable people must think objectively. But it merits a look in the next few weeks.
