Manufactured Home Owner, and Billionaire Third Point Hedge Fund’s Daniel S. Loeb Shakes Market Watchers

November 9th, 2018


On a down day for many stocks on Wall Street, the word is out from CNBC and other sources that Third Point’s Daniel S. Loeb has made several moves that ought to draw a careful look from manufactured housing professionals and other investors.

As a reminder, Loeb was spotlighted by MHLivingNews, in the report linked below.


Why Are Billionaires Attracted to Manufactured Homes?


Among the reported steps by Third Point, per CNBC:

  • Hedge fund activist Daniel Loeb is worried about this market, cuts Netflix and exits Facebook.
  • Daniel Loeb blamed his pessimistic market outlook on his expectations for a slowdown in U.S. economic activity over the next 12 months.
  • Third Point exited its stake in Facebook and cut its position in Netflix, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
  • Loeb told investors he had cut the fund’s technology holdings.



Why It Matters to MHVille?

The Daily Business News on MHProNews has been reporting for some time that there are potential antitrust moves pending, and the names of some of those giants that Loeb’s firm shed are among them.

Industry professionals and their customers use several of the firms that Loeb’s moves reflect on.


Berkshire and Buffett

Perhaps as or more important are recent reports from federal sources to MHProNews.  For example, per sources, investigations of Berkshire Hathaway – with Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway’s manufactured home brands being specifically named by a federal official that spoke to the Daily Business News – also point to potential economic shakeups that will debatably impact manufactured housing.

Bloomberg reported last year that the one thing Warren Buffett is concerned about is a ‘breakup’ of Berkshire, presumably by antitrust action.
