Today’s Big Movers

Skyline, Equity LifeStyle Properties and Sun Communities were the leaders among a day of numerous decliners.

For all the scores and highlights on tracked stocks today, see the Bloomberg graphic, posted below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – Video reports on what sparked a market retreat…

…and the bottom line is that investors are concerned that the pro-growth Trump agenda is being undermined. Per CNBC:


Dow posts biggest one-day fall in 3 months; concerns over Trump agenda grow

·        The index started falling earlier on fears that Gary Cohn, a business friendly advisor to the president, could resign his role as director of National Economic Council because of Trump’s remarks following the violent protests in Charlottesville, VA.

·        The concern remains that members of Congress and others in the business community would not want to work with the President following the backlash that led Trump to dissolve two CEO advisory forums.

But what these reports and videos aren’t saying is this. That the president’s polices have been moving the needle on the markets, in job creation, wage growth and for business.  If anti-Trump forces successfully derail that pro-growth, pro-American agenda, it would lead to a crash.

MHProNews plans a special report on this issue in the near term.  Look for it.
