“Opportunities for Medium to Long-Term Investors,” Plus Manufactured Housing Industry Equities, Market Updates

CNNmoney10.23.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere are several reasons why we source across the left-right media divide. That may sound like a plug, or a pat-on-our-own-back, but frankly, it’s common sense.  Whatever your viewpoint, it is prudent to recognize that on something like the markets, more data – not less – is useful. The wild ride today is our spotlight, which IMHO, are likely to be more volatile until the midterms are over, and Election 2018 results are in.  The quote above is from one of the experts in the video which features several investors, below.


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 markets and stocks, at the closing bell…



Manufactured Housing Composite Value (MHCV)



Today’s Big Movers

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



I count 62 panic attacks” in this bull market, say Ed Yardeni, in the video below. He thinks today’s roller coaster ride was just another panic attack.

There is a level of political and media driven ‘fear,’ or uncertainty. If the GOP holds the House and expands in the Senate, there are some smart analysts that think the markets will soar anew.

There are mixed signals.  Which ought to make those on both sides of the political aisle want to turn out for the midterm voting.

But we’re history-minded.  The Kennedy and the Reagan tax cuts – one a Democrat, the other, a Republican president and administration – both resulted in strong, sustained growth.  Federal revenues eventually grew.





The Trump Tax Cuts has spurred more tax revenue overall. These are facts. The lower rates spur more investment.

That’s already happening with the Trump tax cut, which is less than a year old.  Those who claim that the ‘sugar high’ is over don’t know, or are ignoring, history.



On the hard numbers, hear is what left-of-center CNBC said.

  • Stocks fell on Tuesday as corporate results from Caterpillar and 3M disappointed investors, but the market managed to recover most of its losses later in the session as investors rotated into McDonald’s and defensive stocks like Procter & Gamble.”
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 125.98 points lower at 25,191.43 while the S&P 500 fell 0.55 percent to 2,740.69. The Nasdaq Composite, meanwhile, closed 0.4 percent lower at 7,437.54. The small-caps Russell 2000 dropped 0.8 percent and turned negative for the year.”

Tax revenues are already at a historic high, after a tax cut.

The president has announced that having dealt with the many needs of defense, he is now ready to deal with deficits.

Foreign investments are pouring into the U.S.

The nation is once more the leading global economy.

By the way, when you look at the graphic below, you realize that stocks were essentially flat during the tail end of the Obama era, and they have taken off since the election of President Trump.  The claim by the 44th president that he is responsible for this economy are the cause for chuckles among those who know better.

Experts and others are looking to the midterms.  If the GOP holds the House, and expands in the Senate, it could be a strong signal that the markets will continue their historic ride.  We think that is possible, but it all comes down to turnout.
