The MH Industry – Today’s Risers and Sliders

The manufactured housing industry’s market leaders today were Patrick and LPX.  Skyline took a serious dive today, as talk of a buyout by another producer heats up.  Per Indiana Business, “Elkhart-based Skyline Corp. is reporting a fiscal third quarter net loss of $2.4 million, compared to a net loss of $520,000 during the same period the previous year. Chief Executive Officer Richard Florea says the closure of two underperforming facilities will allow the company to focus on improving profitability.” The company has recently closed two plants, with the Mansfield, Texas being sold to Michigan-based Champion Home Builders, Inc.
