But one of the developments worth noting was President Donald J. Trump signing a trade deal with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.  It means more jobs in the U.S., and that can lead to more sales for manufactured housing and factory builders. The snapshot will be our featured focus this evening.

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 –


The White House press room provided MHProNews the details that follow, but we’ll tee it up with some commentary they don’t give.  There is already a pending ‘deal on the table’ with Mexico and the U.S.  There is some hope that Canada will come in, but sooner or later, they will. Those deals will increase momentum for others in trade, like the EU, which also has a broad outlines of a deal with the U.S.

With that backdrop, here’s the White House statement, right after the White House video posted below.

“For decades politicians have talked about fixing broken trade deals only to do absolutely nothing about them,” President Donald J. Trump said this afternoon from New York. “My Administration is the first to actually keep our promise and deliver.”

In New York City for the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly this week, President Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in today to sign a new trade agreement that protects American workers and businesses. The revised deal will increase U.S. exports while preserving jobs in America’s auto industry.

Under the old U.S.–Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) signed in 2012, our trade deficit skyrocketed from 6.3 billion to $9.8 billion by 2017. Under the new arrangement, South Korea will double the annual number of American automobiles that can enter its market using U.S. safety standards. Seoul has also agreed to address issues with onerous and costly customs procedures that have hindered American exports.

The Republic of Korea is a key ally and trading partner of the United States; improving U.S.–Korean trade will help to strengthen this crucial economic and national security relationship. “Our two countries have set an example of friendship and cooperation for trade that rarely you see in this age,” President Trump said.
