“Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.”
– Mark Twain
There’s a dizzying array of stock, markets, finance, and investment related websites.
Those sites have a collection of resources and data. Some are in near-real time.
The tech behind several of those sites is nothing short of impressive.
Nevertheless, investors, researchers, aficionados, and industry professionals interested in manufactured home communities, producers, lenders, and suppliers, flock to the Daily Business News on MHProNews by the thousands every day.
The data charts here are surrounded by an unmatch collection of what Joe Kelly of the Iowa Manufactured Housing Industry called a well-stocked buffet of insights, interviews, and information. Here, one doesn’t get a sales pitch for a brokerage or other financial service, as useful or good as that service may be.

The graphics provided for today’s Part 4 – shown further below, beyond the links to Parts 1, 2, and 3 – capture a snapshot in time of what has happened since the election results become known in the pre-dawn hours of Nov 9, 2017.
Each of the companies tracked by the Daily Business News supplies, invests in, or is laser focused on manufactured housing production, sales, or communities.
In the case of this 4th part to this series, these graphics yield an at-a-glance historic look at what bottom-line focused-third parties are thinking and doing relative to the manufactured housing industry. No hype, just the facts.
While others no doubt know things about equities that our team doesn’t claim to, nevertheless our grasp of the factory built housing industry as a whole – and manufactured homes in particular – are unmatched by any outside of the MH Industry in media.
So any warts aside – because everyone, and every site has them – on the Daily Business News on MHProNews, “We Know the MH Biz.” ©
The final point before moving into today’s 1 year snapshot graphics is this. Third parties have documented the overwhelmingly negative coverage of President Donald J. Trump. While there are pro-, anti= and meh voices on POTUS Trump in MHVille too, unscientific but random straw polls by MHProNews suggest that the majority of the industry supported his election.
How is that working 1 year after the voting outcome was known, and Secretary Hillary Clinton conceded the race?
Essentially every stock connected to MHVille that we track has risen. While one was close to flat – a closer look reveals that one had a spike, fall, and rise back up.
Some have risen dramatically.
What Industry Professionals Leaders say about
But perhaps the most important reality beyond confidence in the industry is this.
The upside potential of the manufactured home business – given the kind of savvy best practices described in the 15-minute seminar by Credit Human’s Barry Noffsinger, linked below – may only be rivaled by a handful of tech companies.
That doesn’t mean it is all sun shine and roses, as our State of the Manufactured Home Industry reports for Nov. 2017 reflect. There are as in all things professionally — strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT).
Professionals connected to those tech giants are circling the factory built housing industry. Not all of them fully appreciate the value of HUD Code manufactured housing. These two reports below are both a wake-up call, but also another signal of opportunities hidden in plain sight.
Ironically, it’s precisely the ignorance by many about the modern realities of MH that creates the tremendous opportunities in manufactured housing.
Let’s dive into today’s one year recap, Part 4 of 4 in this ‘the Trump effect’ on the MH Markets series.

We brought back as a featured article today “A Cup of Coffee with…Ron Thomas, Sr.” – an award-winning retailer and community professional. The video interview will reveal and unbridled enthusiasm for that RV MH Hall of Fame winner; and there are take-away for the savvy and eagle eyed investor too.
As we periodically note, we have no position in any of the firm’s listed, so we’re quite free to provide the research.
