Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

‘Going after Amazon’ is a theme that has been in the news since Axios reported yesterday that POTUS Trump is eyeing anti-trust action against them.

But today’s business headlines also included the boost to stocks that President Trump’s address in Ohio gave to the markets, particularly to the construction sector.

Stuart Varney on right-of-center Fox Business spotlighted what they called The president’s plan calls for $1.5 trillion over the course of the next decade to overhaul the nation’s roads, bridges, airports and even broadband distribution. The funds are expected to result from a combination of public and private assistances, with the federal government contributing around $200 billion. It is largely up to states and localities to work with the private sector to raise the rest of the cash.”


This could boost jobs even further, and thus spell more good news ahead for housing, including the manufactured home sector.
