Literally Killer News, the Business of America, and Manufactured Housing Industry Market Updates

July 19th, 2018

YahooFinanceManufacturedHousingCompValue7.19.2018DailyBusinessNewsStocksMarketsDataReportsMHProNewsThe Business of America is Business,” said President Calvin Coolidge. It seems that for a number of years, under both GOP and Democratic leaders, that mantra was missed in the maze of regulatory barriers and high taxes. Whatever party you may belong to, that’s obviously changing in the last 18 months. Consumer and business confidence are reaching new highs. Manufacturing is at or near an all time high in confidence. Those are serious reversals over the last quarter century, when businesses and jobs moved overseas.

That said, arguably a major responsibility of government is security.  Our different kind of focus tonight for this evening is literally killer.


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 below, after the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.

We’ll share a recent ‘you go!’ message before diving into the bullets and market tickers.

I have witnessed Soheyla and Tony’s hard work and dedication over the years with great admiration. Their website portal has become a staple of my morning read with amazing interactive charts & graphics, breadth & clarity in their articles, and passion which no one can match in our industry.  Thanks MHProNews! You rock!” – Casey Mack, Legacy Housing.

Thanks, Casey, and to all of those who take the time to share their thoughts.

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 –


Last year, readers of this evening feature on MHProNews will recall that headlines about North Korean missile tests were causing market jitters.

For the past few months, the saber rattling has been silent.

Earlier this year, the U.S. passed a historically large military budget.  Whatever one thinks about that, it is what it is, and one question that ought to be asked is, where are those dollars going?

This video doesn’t answer that completely, but it does shed light on part of what the Trump Administration’s thinking is on military and weaponry.

This is deadly serious news about a developing weapon system, which hopefully will never need to be used. But it is an example of what the proper role of the federal government is, namely, defense of the nation. That defense makes all business possible.
