There’s a raft of headlines, as usual, but two that merit more attention are significant signals that Mexico and the U.S. are moving toward an agreement on border battle related issues.

Today’s Big Movers

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

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Still from video, below.


· The surprisingly weak jobs report for May, with just 75,000 jobs created, shows that the resilient job market is now being hit by the same weakness cropping up in other parts of the economy.

· Economists say it’s now likely the Fed will move to cut rates this year, possibly as early as July.

· Treasury yields, which move opposite price, continued to fall sharply, and the futures market moved to price in an almost three-quarter point rate cuts by December.




· President Donald Trump said Friday that Mexico may be able to avert tariffs on its goods by purchasing American agricultural products. Trump had previously said that escalating tariffs would be imposed, starting Monday, until Mexico took steps to stem unlawful immigration to the U.S.

· “If we are able to make the deal with Mexico, & there is a good chance that we will, they will begin purchasing Farm & Agricultural products at very high levels, starting immediately,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter. “If we are unable to make the deal, Mexico will begin paying Tariffs at the 5% level on Monday!”

· The Mexican peso hit session highs following Trump’s tweet before edging down.

· In 2018, the U.S. exported about $19 billion worth of agricultural products to Mexico, making it the second-largest buyer of U.S. farm-related products after Canada.



Let’s take a complex issue and oversimply this evening. American trade policy has been a mess for decades, under both major parties. Failure to protect our borders properly has been an issue under both Democratic and Republican administrations too.

We don’t completely agree with CNBC’s takes, for those reasons. The indications are that President Trump has pumped up the economy significantly. The Trump Administration’s next step then was/is to address systemic issues such as trade and borders. Those have been top issues for him for years, in some cases, for decades.

Mexico looks like it will make significant concessions that result in their protecting their own southern border with the Central American nations from which the flow of illegal immigrants comes.

On the Fed and rates, that’s anyone’s guess, but there certainly has been signals that they may consider a rate cut.

If the president and loyalists to his policies in his party win in 2020, it is not hard to imagine that he may go far deeper into addressing structural issues in Washington’s policies that have made business more difficult in the U.S. for decades. Coupled with positive steps being taken by HUD Secretary Carsonespecially if he learns and gets on board with enhanced preemption, plus if the DOJ antitrust takes on Berkshire and related – could yield a much brighter future for manufactured housing.

The notion behind those vile tactics was if you could kill off their drinkable water or their food supply, someone could effectively destroy their enemy.
