Texas Commission Talks West Texas Oil Boom, Plus Manufactured Home Market Updates

CNNDowJonesIndustrialAverage7102018ManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHproNewsWest Texas. South Dakota. Louisiana. Oklahoma. These are just some of the places that oil, natural gas, and energy have and are creating or supporting jobs that have sold thousands upon thousands of factory built housing units. Tonight’s spotlight focus is an interview with the Texas Commissioner who keeps his eye on the oil industry there.


If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further below, just beyond the Manufactured Housing Composite Value for today.


The ever evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  It’s an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

It just makes sense. Because like it or not, what moves the markets effects manufactured housing too.

Part of this unique feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – that saves 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.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” ©  It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Today is the 4th day of rising markets, as investors are beginning to shrug of the tough talk on trade wars.  But will the announcement of another $200 billion in tariffs targeting China announced late today impact traders?  Time will tell.   A spotlight on Sun Communities is found, linked below.

Forbes Boast$ about Manufactured Home Community Operation

But tonight’s focus is West Texas oil.

Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton on efforts to boost pipeline capacity to keep up with drilling at the Permian Basin.  Sitton is the Texas official charged with keeping tabs on the oil industry, and he admits that the supply is outpacing oil pipeline capacity.  He says that that will be corrected through construction in the next 12 to 24 months.


As crude oil prices rise over a range of issues, including tensions with Iran, and Russia, U.S production will be ever more important. Another item to keep an eye on for the industry will be when activity starts taking place in ANWAR – which was opened up by legislation enacted by the Trump Administration. That might, just might, cause a wave of factory built homes moving “north to Alaska” at that time.
