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.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



None of the talking heads on these videos say it, but political uncertainty in the U.S. and abroad, juiced by hyped negative headlines are serious factors in the recently downward pressures.



That said, these investors from CNBC are up on the market in general, because they are up on the U.S. economy and related fundamentals.



Manufactured housing is underperforming, the rest are details and commentary.

For those who see that reality, and do take the prudential steps to something about it, the upside is brighter than almost anything else that can be considered.  Affordable housing is a huge need. When Amazon’s Alexa Fund said a few weeks ago that they see the potential for new housing at some $300+ billion a year – and manufactured housing is only did about $6.5 billion in 2017 – that paints a quick picture.
