WH Economist Larry Kudlow – Why Market Ignoring Cohen, Manafort News, Plus MH Market Updates

CNNmoney8.22.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsIf the drama before his heart attack was not enough, let’s hope and pray that Larry Kudlow is ready for the stress ahead. The White House’s chief economic adviser has sounded off to CNBC about the news yesterday, and that will be part of our evening focus tonight.

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 belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


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.

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 –


There has been several legal minds that have sounded off in the last 24 hours.  Perhaps the two most interesting for reality checks – useful for investors – are these two.

Constitutional attorney, author, TV, and former Reagan administration member, Mark Lavin, who says this is a nothing burger.

Harvard’s Alan Dershowitz, who says this is equal to “jay walking” in a worse case scenario.

President Donald J. Trump himself said in an interview to air tomorrow that President Obama had a significant campaign violation.  By contrast, this is debatable at best, or truly nothing if Lavin’s perspective holds true.

Against that backdrop, CNBC said as follows:

  • Chief White House economic advisor, Larry Kudlow to CNBC: “The economy’s everything when it comes to markets and confidence, and I think that markets frankly look through all these various political issues.”
  • There’s no change in policy coming, that’s what really matters. Keep your eye on the ball, and I think the markets have done a good job.”
  • GDP grew at a 4.1 percent pace in the second quarter, and the Atlanta Fed is forecasting 4.3 percent growth in the third quarter. Unemployment is at 3.9 percent, around the lowest since 1969, and business and consumer confidence remains high.
  • Washington is a funny place these days,” Kudlow said.
