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 –


Hurricanes routinely mean destruction and displacement from housing, which in turn means that FEMA MHUs are going to be needed.

WeatherBell Chief Meteorologist Joe Bastardi on Hurricane Michael, for Fox Business.


Tens of thousands of Floridians were warned on Tuesday to get out of harm’s way as Hurricane Michael churned over the Gulf of Mexico toward the northwestern part of the state, bringing fierce winds, torrential rain and life-threatening coastal floods,” said CNBC.

The Florida Manufactured Housing Association (FMHA), which has there offices in Tallahassee, announced Monday that they would close today and tomorrow.  Their message said they would re-open, “as soon as possible.”

There was a relative calm for hurricanes following Katrina for several years, although there were major events like Super Storm Sandy.

But since the Trump Administration, mother nature has struck several times.  In spite of those hurricanes, the economy has been rising steadily.
