CNNmoney7.27.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere will be a special report later this evening on the entry of the Blackstone Group (BX) into the manufactured home community space. They’ve been added to our evening closing ticker recap.  But tonight’s feature will be on the economy.  Despite concerns over tariffs, trade and the latest faux gaff, the GDP numbers suggest that the economy is booming.


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.

The article below provides some added data, and the video covers the president’s announcement of this historic return to growth.
