A divided Congress is expected by Goldman Sachs after the midterms.  If so, when it comes to equities, there will be winners and losers from that outcome.  That will be our market focus for this evening.

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 –

Hudson Valley Investment Advisors’ Gus Scacco on the potential market impact from the midterm elections, is the spotlight video below. 

 

 

Goldman Sachs’ political economists believe Democrats will gain control of the House of Representatives, while they think that the Republicans will retain a slim Senate majority as a result of the midterms, says Fox Business (FBN).  They’ve projected that a divided Congress would mean increased equity volatility and an uncertain future for infrastructure spending while pharmaceutical stocks could benefit, the bank’s analysts explained in their research note on the issue.

 

Goldman Sachs’ political economists believe Democrats will gain control of the House of Representatives, while they think that the Republicans will retain a slim Senate majority as a result of the midterms, says Fox Business (FBN).  They’ve projected that a divided Congress would mean increased equity volatility and an uncertain future for infrastructure spending while pharmaceutical stocks could benefit, the bank’s analysts explained in their research note on the issue.

It should be noted that as a source, Goldman has backed Democrats for some years, a point that came out during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.  So an open question might be, how does that figure into how they may spin their own analysis?

MHProNews maintains that there have been several countersignals to the so-called blue wave that argue against that, and point to a more likely red tide. But it always, always comes down to turnout and actual voting.  Mainstream media pundits were wrong in 2016, MHProNews analysis correctly projected the path to the Presidency for then candidate Donald J. Trump. After some 21 months of actually doing what they campaigned on, are impartial observers to believe that the voters that back Mr. Trump for president are now going to turn against him? 

With black, Hispanic and women’s unemployment falling to all time lows, with the markets up, there are surveys that show more support for the president and his policies in those groups.

The harder call, frankly, is in the House. Big Democratic donors have far deeper pockets. But President Trump won spending significantly less than Secretary Clinton did. Barring some new harmful October or November surprise, the president’s party should gain seats in the Senate, and should hold their lead in the House.

It’s about educating voters, motivation, and turnout. Don’t let media bias keep you from the polls, or cause you to think the election can’t be won.  Of course it can, and the 2016 election proves it.  Far larger turnouts for President Trump on the stump than for people like former Obama Administration VP Joe Biden rally are but one of many signals that there is wind in GOP sails.
