Revised Economic Numbers Spotlight Strongest GDP in Years, Q2, Plus Manufactured Housing Industry Market Report

5 day closing Dow ticker.

As the Daily Business News has noted previously, the broader economic and political developments routinely impact manufactured housing, and publicly traded stocks.  Reports from publicly traded companies often point to broader U.S. economic issues, such as job creation, consumer confidence, or rising wages as factors supporting more sales. So tonight’s focus is on the latest analysis by Moody Analytics on economic projections for the U.S. in Q2.
