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” ©.

10 Market Indicator Closing Summaries – Yahoo Finance Closing Tickers on MHProNews…


Featured Focus – Where Business, Politics and Investing Meet


This evening’s report draws data elements from Fox Business and CNBC. It also includes a video clip of President Donald J. Trump at Davos, talking about some of what he sees as his administration’s accomplishments.

President Trump addresses the World Economic Forum in Davos and
discusses the economic prosperity America is experiencing.




Manufacturing rose 3.6 percent during Trump’s three years, which was more than double the rise of 1.7 percent in the three years under Obama before that, according to government data.

Manufacturing employment also rose under Trump, with 487,000 manufacturing jobs created.

In contrast, in the three years prior to Trump’s term, manufacturing employment rose by 287,000 jobs.



This data below will have an added item from a prior Fox Business report.





A distinction needs to be made in this data too. During the Obama Administration there was a series of QEs or Quantitative Easing policies that featured the Federal Reserve essentially propping up the stock market through purchase.


By contrast, for several months, the Federal Reserve was unwinding its holdings which amounted to a headwind for stocks under the Trump years that were the opposite of what was occurring during years of the Obama Administration.


Before Mr. Trump took office in January 2017, the Congressional Budget Office forecast the creation of only two million jobs by this point. The economy has in fact created seven million jobs,” wrote former Trump chief economic advisor Gary Cohn and former Trump chair of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett in a Wall Street Journal article.

Certainly, the Obama administration inherited an economy in free fall. That halted and slowly reversed. But the Obama Administration also created more debt than any other administration in U.S. history.


The 2017 tax cuts has, as was projected, boosted revenues, but spending has remained high. President Trump has said that getting the debt and budget under control would be a priority in his second term, presuming his reelection on November 3, 2020.
