Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA) Says Manufactured Home Industry Builders Significantly Outperformed by Conventional Housing Builders’ Equities, plus Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates


In a news update from the Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA) to MHProNews was the following report on May 3, 2021.

TMHA created a monthly tracking tool to see how HUD Code manufactured home builders perform when compared to the broader conventional housing market.

In April the answer was a sobering wake of call for investors and conscientious publicly traded companies board members.

Manufactured housing stocks dipped, while conventional building funds outperformed publicly traded MHI member brands as well as the broader S&P index.

QuoteMarkMHProNewsManufactured Home Builders Stock Index (MHBI)

The Manufactured Home Builders Stock Index (MHBI) is a capitalization-weighted index developed by TMHA that inlcudes publicly traded companies whose primary line of business is the construction and sale of manufactured housing.

iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF (ITB)

The iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF (ITB) is included for comparison sake to show how the Manufactured Home Builders Stock Index is doing relative to a broad index of the overall residential construction sector. The ITB index includes some of the same manufactured home companies as the MHBI, but the weights within each are very different.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY)

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) is included as a market benchmark to see how manufactured home builders are doing in comparison to the broader US equity market.”


Texas is one of the top states that is still trailing their 2020 results. It has long been the number one production and shipment state in the U.S.

The stock track above and other linked trends are but the latest reasons for the white hat independents at MHI to question and then dump the leadership of the black hats that arguably lead the organization.

Former MHI state affiliates broke away and in 2018 formed the National Association for Manufactured Housing Community Owners, NAMHCO. They cited MHI’s years of failures as part of their reason for doing so.

The TMHA data above creates added context for the information that follows.




Programing Notice: beyond the reports linked above and below, there is a special report pending on new insider data.


Per sources, the model shown above could be built as a HUD Code manufactured home or as a state-coded modular home. It was built years before the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) backed CrossModTM initiative. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/march-2021-manufactured-housing-production-shipment-data-reveals-big-uptick-unpacking-the-facts-trends-evidence-news-analysis/
NOTICE: RHP Properties, MHI, and their attorneys declined comment on this report. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/march-2021-manufactured-housing-production-shipment-data-reveals-big-uptick-unpacking-the-facts-trends-evidence-news-analysis/

Those insider data-points and related factual revelations will reveal several problems that the Berkshire Hathaway brands that dominate the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) have arguably been ‘covering up.’ Stay tuned for another exclusive found only on MHProNews.


Notice 2: While the arrangement or layout of this report has been modified, several elements of the basic concepts used before are still the same. The headlines that follow below can be reviewed at a glance to save time while providing insights across the left-right media divide. Additionally, those headlines often provide clues as to possible ‘market moving’ reports.
