Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Hudson Valley Investment Advisors’ Gus Scacco on the potential market impact from the midterm elections, is the spotlight video below. 

 

 

Goldman Sachs’ political economists believe Democrats will gain control of the House of Representatives, while they think that the Republicans will retain a slim Senate majority as a result of the midterms, says Fox Business (FBN).  They’ve projected that a divided Congress would mean increased equity volatility and an uncertain future for infrastructure spending while pharmaceutical stocks could benefit, the bank’s analysts explained in their research note on the issue.

 

Goldman Sachs’ political economists believe Democrats will gain control of the House of Representatives, while they think that the Republicans will retain a slim Senate majority as a result of the midterms, says Fox Business (FBN).  They’ve projected that a divided Congress would mean increased equity volatility and an uncertain future for infrastructure spending while pharmaceutical stocks could benefit, the bank’s analysts explained in their research note on the issue.

It should be noted that as a source, Goldman has backed Democrats for some years, a point that came out during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.  So an open question might be, how does that figure into how they may spin their own analysis?

MHProNews maintains that there have been several countersignals to the so-called blue wave that argue against that, and point to a more likely red tide. But it always, always comes down to turnout and actual voting.  Mainstream media pundits were wrong in 2016, MHProNews analysis correctly projected the path to the Presidency for then candidate Donald J. Trump. After some 21 months of actually doing what they campaigned on, are impartial observers to believe that the voters that back Mr. Trump for president are now going to turn against him? 

With black, Hispanic and women’s unemployment falling to all time lows, with the markets up, there are surveys that show more support for the president and his policies in those groups.

The harder call, frankly, is in the House. Big Democratic donors have far deeper pockets. But President Trump won spending significantly less than Secretary Clinton did. Barring some new harmful October or November surprise, the president’s party should gain seats in the Senate, and should hold their lead in the House.

It’s about educating voters, motivation, and turnout. Don’t let media bias keep you from the polls, or cause you to think the election can’t be won.  Of course it can, and the 2016 election proves it.  Far larger turnouts for President Trump on the stump than for people like former Obama Administration VP Joe Biden rally are but one of many signals that there is wind in GOP sails.

Expose! Why Has Warren Buffett/BH Funded Anti-MHC Activists, MHAction? Why Fund Attacks on ELS, Frank Rolfe, Blackstone Group?

October 20th, 2018 No comments

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

 

On the surface, it sounds preposterous.

Or even bizarre.

Why would billionaire Warren Buffett, his family, and related foundations make ‘charitable’ contributions of Berkshire Hathaway stocks, cash, and/or grants to a left-wing activist-organizations that in turn paid MHAction, which disrupted HUD Secretary Ben Carson’s address to the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI)?

 

WarrenBuffettGeorgeSorosPhotosHUDSecBenCarsonTidesFoundationLogoMHActionLogoMHActionProtestorPhotoManufacturedHousingIndustryMHProNews600

 

 

That’s where the news tip, facts, and evidence point to – in what could develop into the biggest manufactured housing exposé since Smoking Gun 3.

It was a resident group member that tipped the Daily Business News on MHProNews to the statements by the president of the Golden State Manufactured-Home Owner League (GSMOL) that MHAction – Manufactured Housing Action – was getting funding from the Tides Foundation.

 

NovoFoundationWarrenBuffettTidesFoundationFundsMHActionManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

 

Among the donors to the leftist Tides?

The NoVo Foundation, with Warren’s son Peter and his wife as organization’s Co-Presidents. In the year shown, Buffett backed NoVo Foundation gave millions of dollars toward the Tides.  See that new report on MHLivingNews, at the link below.

 

Manufactured Home Resident Group President Cautions Against MHAction, Surprising Background Reveal to Manufactured Housing Action

 

The Tides in turn gave to MHAction, stated the GSMOL President Michelle Smith.

Smith blasted MHAction for trying to wrongfully take credit for work that they – GSMOL – had in fact done.

What Smith didn’t say was the “dark money” trail from Buffett – who’s Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate owns Clayton Homes, 21st and Vanderbilt, among several other firms connected to manufactured housing – has purportedly funded MHAction.

 

WarrenBuffettGeorgeSorosTheTidesMHActionDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

 

But Tides and groups funded by Buffett and billionaire George Soros haven’t funded through intermediaries  MHAction alone.  There are other radical activist groups that have been funded too.

We didn’t want the details to leak before publishing this, but soon plan to ask how

  1. Equity LifeStyle Properties (ELS),
  2. “Frank & Dave,” RVHorizons, and Mobile Home University (MHU),
  3. or the Blackstone Group

feel about having Berkshire money flowing into anti-business protests that have been aimed at them?

MHAction, as MHProNews has previously reported, protested each of those groups. See the video above for one example, with more in the related reports, further below the by line.

Further, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) has elevated Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA-D).  Warren, was a keynote for an MHAction and other radical activist groups address.

 

Facts & Analysis – Senator Elizabeth Warren re: Manufactured Housing Institute Memo to MHI Members, 10-3-2018

 

‘Pay More Attention to what People Do…’ and ‘Follow the Money.’ 

You decide if Marty Lavin’s dictum applies.

FollowThe MoneyPayMoreAttentionToWhatPeopleDothanwhatTheySaySpySea72MartyLavinYachtManufacturedHousingINdustryProMHProNews

Ask yourself. Do these Marty Lavin dictums apply in these cases?  Some of the same people who make left-wing protests against ‘capitalists’ are funded by left-wing billionaires.  Can you spell ‘head fake?’  Can you spell ‘con game?’

To report a news tip, click the image above or send an email to iReportMHNewsTips@mhmsm.com – To help us spot your message in our volume of email, please put the words NEWS TIP in the subject line.

MHAction – through the Tides Foundations, and via other mechanisms – are connected

  • to Black Lives Matter,
  • New York Communities for Change (NYCC),
    AntiFa (so-called Antifascists, who ironically use the brownshirt and violent tactics that fascists used),
  • and other radical – sometimes violent and destructive  – groups.  It should be noted that NYCC and others spun off from ACORN, which was disbanded after allegations of voter fraud, and other illegalities surfaced.

The above facts appears to confirm the oblique links between Buffett’s billions and those of left-wing activist billionaire, George Soros.

 

 

GSMOL, Other Resident Groups Should Be Disturbed

It’s no secret that the Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association (WHA) and GSMOL are often at loggerheads with each other.

But are each group missing something in this revelation?

How is it that Democrats are getting backers like:

  • billionaires Buffett and Soros,
  • state resident groups are also often backing Democratic candidates?
  • In California, sources say that the WMA backs Democrats too.
  • Who is fooling whom?

 

MarketWatch Reports Warren Buffett’s Midterm Campaign Contributions

 

When you look at the pieces of the puzzle, it makes you think back to corruption of Tammany Hall,” said L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach, publisher of MHProNews, manufactured home industry consultant, service provider, and expert.

How is it that members of the Delaware Manufactured Home Owners Association (DMHOA) failed to realize the import of their own statements? Didn’t they realize that Democrats have the lion share of the PAC money in the U.S., and apparently in their state?

 

LATonyKovachGoodBipartisanshipShouldalwaysBepredicatedBenefitallhonestindustrymembersnotslectfewquote

The comment above was said with respect to another recent topic, but relates to this issue too.

 

Why are there so many cases of both residents and industry insiders backing the same party’s candidates?

Paying to Stir Up Trouble…

Manufactured housing is a microcosm of what is taking place in other parts of the national scene.  There are paid agitators in Washington, D.C. and other places. There are organizations that have formed with money from billionaires and others that are organizing the protests that disrupted

 

 

More on this in the days ahead. But suffice it to say for today that the billionaires are paying to stir up trouble for the members of the industry on several levels.

Part of the image issue of our industry is fueled by the protests of MHAction and others.  That impacts not only those who are being protested, but arguably, the industry at large.

And the party that Buffett and Soros backs are the Democrats.  The Democrats are the ‘beneficiaries’ of AntiFa and related groups, that operate similarly to how MHAction are being used in MHVille. In fact, as a prior report revealed, MHAction attends other leftist groups protests, and vice versa.

Where is MHI on this?  Oh, yes, pardon me.  They are being funded by Berkshire Hathaway too.

On MHProNews, we follow the leads, evidence, tips, and money.

The markets would love this, my goodness,” Moody’s Managing Director John Lonski said Thursday during an interview with FOX Business’ Stuart Varney. He was speaking of the president’s plan to cut 5 percent from each major department, other than Defense. Treasury bond yields would drop. Equity prices would soar if we had these type of spending cuts.”

Part of President Donald J. Trump’s solution – which he’s dubbed the “nickel plan” — requires each Cabinet department to slash the “fat and waste” in the government by cutting 5 percent from the budget by fiscal-year 2020. Congress already approved a defense spending bill in September, so the cuts won’t apply to the military.

 

 

Keep in mind that MHProNews has said for years that the CAGW has spotlighted tens of billions that could be cut from the federal budget, no problem.

Black MAGA

It is unrelated to the nickel plan, but very related to the rapidly approaching midterms. It includes a powerful housing story too.

The BEST thing to ever happen to me financially was when I was kicked off Food Stamps because I started making too much money. 26 years ago, I was homeless and sleeping on the streets of Atlanta. Through the Grace of God, hard work and the support from many fellow Americans (blacks, whites, Jews & Gentiles); I conquered my adversity and started living my American Dream independent from Government Assistance,” says YG Nyghtstorm’s YouTube page.

 

This spirit of American Exceptionalism is what MAGA is all about. The United States gives each person the BEST chance of success to work hard and become the greatest version of themselves while embracing patriotism, faith and a willingness to help others become free. Our country is not perfect and it’s going to take ALL of us to make America great for MORE of us. We don’t have to always agree, but we can work together through mutual respect to create a more perfect union.” YG Nyghtstorm.

HasPOTUSTrumpSignaledMajorFinancialSystemChangeAfterMidtermsPLUSMHMarketUpdates

It’s a fact.

Many in the media are either flatly opposed to the president and/or they simply don’t get him.  That’s not to say that anyone, including MHProNews, is going to be right all of the time.  But are there hints that the president made in recent interviews?

Could financial system changes be coming that will upend the Federal Reserve system after the midterms?

In the interview below, the president takes dead aim at the FED as being the biggest threat to his otherwise successful economic progress. The interview covers several topics, not just the Fed.

 

 

But some may not realize that the Federal Reserve system, which is now over a century old, has arguably not achieved its stated purposes.  There are voices in Washington that wanted investigations and change for years, like Congressman Ron Paul.

Senator Rand Paul is cut from that same bolt of cloth as his father. MHProNews will plan a special report on this issue.

Suffice it to say for now, that if the GOP proves successful, there are reasons to believe that the president will lay out a bold new vision that could borrow some historic pages.  If so, lending could change dramatically for the federal government and for the nation.

Stay tuned.

Budget Cuts, Mick Mulvaney, and Manufactured Housing Market Updates

October 17th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney10.17.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsPersonal federal income tax revenues, as MHProNews recently reported, are actually rising since the tax cut.  That’s the historic pattern too. That said, with interest rates rising, those rates impact the federal budget more than anything other single entity in the nation. What it will take to cut the budget is the focus of these evening’s market report, which features an interview with the Bureau of Consumer Finance (formerly called the CFPB), and budget director, Mick Mulvaney.

 

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 belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.

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.

BudgetCutsMickMulvaneyManufacturedHousingMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

You cannot convince a Democrat to cut spending, said Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney in the video posted below.

What the video interview doesn’t discuss is the fact that there actually could be a way that the budget can be brought under control, and it is obliquely mentioned.

Mulvaney explains that it normally takes 60 votes in the Senate to get a budget deal, so even a few Democrats can hold that up.

Right now, Republicans have only 51 seats in the U.S. Senate.

But there are more Democrats playing defense in the U.S. Senate than there are for the GOP.  Several races are close, and often those are already leaning Republican.

The graphic below reveals how the GOP could grab control of the Senate, by winning in the states that are shown below.

President Trump’s Nickel Plan.

President Trump announced today that he has asked his Cabinet to cut their departments’ budgets by 5 percent in what he dubbed the “nickel plan.”

“I am going to ask each of you to come back with a 5 percent budget cut from your various departments,” President Trump said during a meeting, per Fox Business. He added that the cuts will “get rid of the fat and waste” in the federal government. “I think you’ll all be able to do it.”

The plan would be on non-defense items, and would not include Social Security or Medicare, per sources.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

MorganStanelyCNBCRedBlueSplitcongressPlusMHMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Other than moat-minder investors, most like bulk of the policy results so far under President Donald J. Trump.   Per left-of-center CNBC, here are their bullets, followed by graphics from Morgan Stanley, and then followed by other third-party data that will give those who want a red wave to carry both the House and the Senate to take heart.

Per CNBC:

  • With the odds for a blue wave fading, the market is pricing in a split Congress after the mid-term election, and strategists expect stocks to rally no matter the outcome.
  • However, on the outside chance Republicans sweep, the market could actually do better in the year after the election.
  • For the bond market, strategists see slightly higher rates if Republicans win both houses because of the prospect of more tax cuts and more U.S. debt.

Per Morgan Stanley: note we believe that option two is the more likely one, and that the odds are higher than they suggest.

MorganStanelyCNBCRedBlueSplitDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

No one knows it all, and our crystal ball is imperfect. That said, we were correct in 2016, when others were saying ‘no chance.’  Some of the same kinds of indicators that led MHProNews to project an insurgent Trump win for the White House in 2016, and allowed the GOP to hold a narrow grasp of the House and the Senate are reasons why a Red Tide is more likely than not.

While noting it all comes down to people going to the polls – that means you too – let’s recap some evidence as to why the Dems may be disappointed on midterm election night 2018, just three weeks from now.

1)    535’s pundit Nate Silver, left leaning, says a split likely and is less sure of his forecast than he was in 2016, when he was dead wrong.

2)    Rasmussen, which was one of the more accurate polls in 2016 has President Trump hovering around 50 to 52 percent job approval.

3)    While the Washington Post disagrees, Rasmussen says that POTUS Trump is now at 36 percent approval among African-Americans.

4)    Consider that the BBC reminds us that in 2016, Donald J. Trump won “8% of black voters – 88% voted for Clinton.” That was 8 percent in 2016 was enough for Candidate Trump to make states like North Carolina tilt red. Even if it is less than 36 percent, as WaPo suggests, if minorities and Anglos turn out and vote in equal proportions, expect a red tide, not a blue wave.

5)    Gallup surprisingly showed in September that approval of the GOP is at a multiple year high.

RepublicanPartyGainsGrondGallupFavorableViewsofGOPDemocraticPartiesSept2018DailyBusinessNewsMHproNEws

This poll was finished before the completion of the Judge Kavanagh hearings. The energy on the right has risen since then.

The strong drum beat from the anti-Trump wing of the media reveals concern, not confidence. There’s more but that’s enough for this evening.

With the Kanye West effect, and a growing number of non-traditional support growing for the 45th President and the GOP that has provided the strong economy in decades, it is difficult to see how rational voters will vote against their own self interests.

Time will soon tell.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

DebtsDeficitsTaxesDollarsManufacturedHousingIndustryMarketUpdates

Reuters reports that “The U.S. federal government closed the 2018 fiscal year $779 billion in the red as tax cuts hit revenues and the government paid more to service a growing national debt, according to Treasury Department data released on Monday.” That’s for a 12 month period the largest since 2012, and of course some are blaming the tax cuts.

That said, interest rates are rising, which means that a larger share of federal tax dollars are going to debt service.

Further, tax collections of individual rates are actually at a historic high, after the tax cuts.

The pattern is already akin to what occurred during the Kennedy and Reagan administrations.  A discussion of some of the economic numbers is in the video below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

 

ManufacturedHousingMidtermsYourMoneyFoxDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

There are some asking the question, what blue wave? Will it be a red tide?  It’s not quite that easy, either way.  For example in Florida – the #3 manufactured housing state in the nation in recent years –  self-professed Democratic Socialist Andrew Gillum – who is getting support from Bernie Sanders, the Obamas and the Clintons – is slightly ahead of the surging Ron DeSantis, who is backed by POTUS Trump.

In the state of Texas, Democrat Beto O’Rourke has just raised a record amount of money in his serious challenge to incumbent U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (GOP-R). In fact, the ratio of money raised in the last FEC filing was almost $3 for O’Rourke to $1 for Cruz.

While the polling in the contest at one point favored the Democrat, Cruz is beginning to pull away and create some daylight in his lead over O’Rourke.

 

But it isn’t over in this or any other race ‘until the fat lady sings.’ For those of you who didn’t know, my hubby says that is a term from opera, where the ‘fat lady’ singing would often end the performance.

The Kanye Effect?


The economy is a huge issue for millions, and of course President Trump is trying to “nationalize” many races by making it a referendum about his economic, job growth and foreign policy agenda. A snapshot of the HUGE money being placed by billionaires and others into the race for Democrats, the growing role of the Obamas and the Clintons in the race are part of our featured report, linked below.

No place in MHVille is providing anything like the coverage we’ve been generating about the midterms, which are now just 3.5 weeks out. Do what others are doing.  Share your emailed news updates.  Share a link with others.  And of course, vote.

For those who have not caught a Trump rally recently, go to YouTube – and type in Trump Rally Today – or watch it on CSPAN. What you’ll see is the kind of enthusiasm that lifted Marsha Blackburn from behind to ahead. You’ll also hear the candidates and the president talk about issues without a media filter.  For our report yesterday on Kanye, with his White House video, see the report in the evening spotlight, at the link below.

Risk Taking! Kanye West, Jim Brown, POTUS Trump Oval Office Meeting, Plus MH Market Updates

October 11th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney10.11.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThey were both taking a risk. But business channels joined other media to tune into the White House meeting today between President of the United States (POTUS) Donald J. Trump, rapper Kanye West, and former NFL star Jim Brown.  That suggests it was an important event. Markets slid today again, and our standard bullets, graphics and closing tickers follow.  But our focus this evening, with an eye on November 6, is on the Oval Office video that is posted below, along with related commentary.

 

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 belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.

 

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 –

You don’t try to reason with abject ignorance,” said Rush Limbaugh on his show today. “You can’t. You must defeat it.” While one could debate the pro, con or application to this topic, it’s a fun segue from conservative talk radio flagship of the golden EIB microphone back to Washington, D.C. based comments on this progressive-leaning Boston Globe column.

The left loses when its exposed, conservatives lose when they are silent,” said a caller on Limbaugh’s show today. “If we show [conservatives, Republicans] show up [at the polls], we will win every single time.

Does that reasoning apply to this evening’s spotlight?

RiskTakingKanyeWestJImBrownPOTUSTrumpOvalOfficeMeetingPLUSMHMarketUpdates

Rasmussen, which was one of the most accurate polls in 2016, said that President Donald J. Trump’s approval with African Americans stands at 36 percent.

For those who don’t track this closely, historically, the black vote for decades has been over 90 percent Democrat. Candidate Trump told blacks in 2016, “What have you got to lose?” in his ask for their vote.

With record low black unemployment, less than 2 years after his election, and the president mentioning that record at every one of his rallies, his popularity with blacks has steadily risen.

Part of the reason are black Christian leaders, along with pundits like those in the photo collage, below, who in many cases have come out for President Donald J. Trump.

MHProNews has tracked this trend since before the 2016 voting, using it as part of our basis for projecting the path to victory for POTUS Trump over candidate Hillary Clinton.

There are certainly more celebrities that tend to support Democrats, and it has been that way for years.  Taylor Swift’s recent announcement of support for anti-Trump candidates is nothing new on the political or media scene.

Performer Taylor Swift, HUD Code Manufactured Homes, Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) PAC Donations, and 2018 Midterms

Another recent survey of mainstream media (MSM) coverage of the president says that their reports are some 92 percent tilted against POTUS #45.  But trust in media is also dropping.  Millions realize or are discovering the reality of media bias to a degree that per reports may be near historic levels. The Columbia Center for Journalism says only Congress is less trusted than mainstream media.

In that environment, photo and video ops like the one at the White House today could well sway some traditionally Democratic voters to pull the lever for pro-Trump GOP candidates. We will know in less than 4 weeks.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

DontOverAnalyzeTodaysPukeDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsMarketReport

Today’s video was recorded before the closing bell, and the markets moved further down after that report. But the discussion is still relevant.  Fox Business (FBN) Charlie Gasaprino noted some reasons not to panic.

  • Higher interest rates, expected.
  • Unwinding of the Fed balance sheet, expected.
  • Chinese Finance Ministry, “optimistic” on a “trade war breakthrough.” said FBN’s Liz Clayman. Clayman was surprised that such a comment from China didn’t cause a market spike.
  • Corporate earnings are expected to be solid for the third quarter.

Circle Squared CEO Jeff Sica said this is a modest amount of volatility, but he believes the trade war is the larger issue.

Art Hogan, B. Riley FBR Chief Market Strategist, thinks the U.S China trade deal may be “next year’s business.”

If so, there better be a Trump Administration team in place with enough allies on Capitol Hill.

 

 

Gasparino expressed concerns that the Trump Tax Cuts would produce enough growth. It’s a common theme among many in the mainstream media.

But underreported is the fact that there is already a surge in individual tax receipts in Washington, following the tax cuts. That’s part of the historic pattern during the Kennedy and Reagan administration tax cuts.  Can the surge in other sectors of tax collections be far behind?

IndividualFederalIncomeTaxesSetRecordThroughAugust2018CNSNewsDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

Taxes cut. Revenue to the IRS surged in August to an all time record.

There’s also more tax money coming in from repatriation from overseas.

The Obama Administration accelerated the deficit-debt spiral that began under the POTUS 43 Bush Administration.  With razor thin margins in the Senate, it will take more control there and in the House to begin to do the serious budget reforms that are necessary to fully address the growing debt.

But there is every reason to think that historic trends will prevail. “We Provide, You Decide.” ©
