White House Thanks CNN’s Acosta, Plus Manufactured Housing Market Updates

CNNmoney1.16.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere is no incentive for either side to backdown in the shutdown struggle, said Charles Lane, opinion writer for the left-of-center Washington Post.  Both sides are dug in, and are playing to their respective bases.  So, the longest shutdown on record continues, and notably, the stock markets have in recent weeks risen.  On another day where most tracked manufactured housing stocks rose, we’ll look at the lighter side of the border battle, as the White House thanked nemesis CNN’s Jim Acosta for his report from the border.  That will be our feature for this evening.

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 –



Sometimes, the news takes an unexpectedly lighter turn. That happened a few days ago, when anti-Trump CNN champion, Jim Acosta went to the border to prove that there was no crisis or emergency.


The border battle is at the heart of the federal government shutdown, for both Democrats and Republicans.

In under two minutes, this video will cause some to smile, and others to frown.  The longest shutdown continues.  It is said that it will increasingly have an economic impact, which for now is limited to roughly a million federal workers and contractors.

It’s a symbol of divided government.
