On “the Border of Insanity,” plus Manufactured Housing Stock Updates

CNNmone5.8.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsInsanity seems to have taken solid root in wide portions of the United States, including in ways that impact manufactured housing. While some think this is a non-issue, this evening’s snapshot will provide insights some may not have considered.  On a day when markets and manufactured home industry connected tracked stocks largely slid, we’ll look at the border of insanity as our featured report.


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 –



Some of us came to the United States legally. Others jump a border, cross the waters, overstay a visa, or otherwise find ways to ignore U.S. immigration laws.

We’ve covered this topic before, but this video clip highlights how this new wave of migrants on the southern border have adapted to the new reality. 

Illegal immigrants jump into the Rio Grande to be rescued by border agents in order to be ferried to the other side.

Former CIA officer Mike Baker discusses the debate over border security and whether the U.S. needs to be concerned about terrorists crossing the southern border. 









This is costly, but it is also dangerous. Not the least impacted are those lower wage U.S. workers who are here legally. See the related reports, linked below.
