Warren Buffett is the well-known Chairman of the Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate. Berkshire in turn owns Clayton Homes, 21st Mortgage Corp, Vanderbilt and an array of other companies, some of which are noted in the link below. 

Buffett shared his take on construction, trucking and labor.  Notice what he didn’t mention?  In this clip, he spoke about their site builders, but not his manufactured housing unit – Clayton – which owns those conventional builders.  

 

 

Another big of Berkshire news is their announcement that they will more likely move on stock buy-backs, when they believe it is undervalued. 

That video is shown below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

DOJIndictmentsLogoDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

DOJ logo provided under fair use guidelines.

Much of the mainstream media reporting, including several on both sides of the political aisle – even several on sources like Fox News – could leave one with the impression that President Donald J. Trump “committed treason.”

What?  Didn’t President Barack Obama say less than 2 years ago that there was limited value or no use to even trying to get Russian President Vladimir Putin to admit that they meddled in the 2016 election?  Who’s watch did the meddling take place on? Rephrased, hypocrisy and a lack of clear-headed analysis were on full display in roughly the last 30 hours.

The key fact being overshadowed is what Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigator’s obtained a grand jury indictment of 12 Russians revealed.

In a release to the Daily Business News on MHProNews, the DoJ headline read as follows.

Grand Jury Indicts 12 Russian Intelligence Officers for Hacking Offenses Related to the 2016 Election.”

The last 3 paragraphs of the DoJ press release begin the key point for Americans to consider.

 

There is no allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant in the alleged unlawful activity or knew they were communicating with Russian intelligence officers. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the vote count or changed the outcome of the 2016 election,” stated the DoJ release.

Rephrased, there was no collusion or allegation of a criminal tie in between the Trump campaign and these alleged Russian offenders.

The DoJ also said, “Everyone charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in court. At trial, prosecutors must introduce credible evidence that is sufficient to prove each defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, to the unanimous satisfaction of a jury of twelve citizens.

This case was investigated with the help of the FBI’s cyber teams in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and San Francisco and the National Security Division. The Special Counsel’s investigation is ongoing. There will be no comments from the Special Counsel at this time.”

With that backdrop, CNBC will be doing an interview with former Presidential adviser Steve Bannon. Readers may recall that the president distanced himself from Bannon, after some odd statements in the aftermath of one of the anti-Trump books that Bannon was commenting on at the time.

But that was then, and now Bannon is giving a full-throated defense of the president. He said that the greater threat is China, not Russia.

Per CNBC,President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon said Tuesday that Trump needs to end the Cold War on “our terms,” a day after the president appeared with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Finland.”

POTUS knows he needs to end the Cold War on our terms, and unite the West against the rise of a totalitarian China,” Bannon told CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

The reality is that the Russia, China, the U.S., England, France, Israel, Iran, North Korea and on down the list of nations meddle in the internal affairs of other countries.  Each of those nations, and dozens of others, have done so for years. This is a sad display of a lack of understanding of history and political realities.

The strengthening of NATO that is being brought about by President Trump’s leadership is clearly aimed against Russia.  President Putin no doubt understands that reality. U.S. voters should too. “We Provide, You Decide.”  ©

“From Impossible to Inevitable,” Black Fly, plus Manufactured Housing Market Updates

July 16th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney7.16.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere’s not much of a direct link between the newly unveiled BlackFly personal flying vehicle and manufactured housing. So why bother?  Because it is one of a range of technologies that could transform travel, especially for commuters.  That in turn could make living in a more rural area appealing, and thus offer additional options for housing seekers, which include manufactured homes.

 

Black Fly will be our fun, video focus tonight.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

BlackFlyVTOLForbesManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

The headline quote is from the video, posted below.

CBS this Morning broke the story last week about the first public look at the previously secret Silicon Valley facility where the aircraft called “Blackfly” is being built.

If the reports end up accurate, someone could buy a manufactured home, plus buy one of these VTOLs (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) and still be dollars ahead from purchasing a similar sized conventional house.

 

 

Forbes observes that BlackFly has more of a UFO look to it than other VTOLs and personal flying vehicles out there.

Utilizing eight small rotors spread across two parallel wings, it takes off by sort of rolling on and off the ground via its rounded belly, which makes it look a little bit like an old school rocking horse,” said Forbes.

Opener is the firm that is building the craft. They say it designed BlackFly with “triple-modular redundant flight systems, control surfaces, and sensors” to ensure safety and has flown over ten thousands miles of test flights.

There’s an auto-landing and return-to-home features to add extra usability.

Opener says the single passenger, joystick-operated system requires no formal licensing in the U.S. to fly, but the company will mandate that users take the FAA Private Pilot written examination and complete its own operator training.

At present, the system won’t be useable over a city. But as the technology develops, restrictions are likely to be eased, especially since others such as Google and Uber are developing their own flying vehicles.

Perhaps the more likely candidate to disrupt potential commutes affordably is the hyperloop.  For our recent report on that, click the below.

The bottom line for industry professionals and investors is this.  It should be obvious that the industry must continue to pursue what MHARR president Mark Weiss said was the full implementation of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000.  That would include enhanced preemption.

But that other development – namely that technology could allow more to commute more readily from a more rural to a more urban or suburban locale – is not to be missed.

It is one of several developments that point to potentially brighter days ahead for manufactured housing.

July 13th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney7.13.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsFor the better part of the first six months of 2018, stocks on the Dow and other markets have reacted – mostly negatively – to a series headlines out of Washington, Beijing, North Korea, Canada, the Eurozone – you name it.  But today, after the so-called trade war – new tariffs – between the U.S. and China is already underway, and with tough talk with trading partners in NAFTA, Europe and Asia…the Dow just crossed 25,000 again, and the Nasdaq is perched near record territory.

U.S. stocks wrapped a winning week on Friday with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing above the psychologically significant 25,000-point milestone, a one-month high,” said Fox Business. “The S&P 500, the broadest measure of stocks, reached a 5-month high and the Nasdaq Composite even better, sitting at a record. A string of new records for some big tech names helped drive the momentum as Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google each hit all-time highs Friday.”

 

Outside of tech, the broader momentum on the final trading day of the week was powered by solid earnings reports from a handful of big banks and easing concerns over a prolonged trade war,” per Fox Business.

A growing range of voices are saying something similar to what the White House has said.  They expect revised trade deals to begin to emerge in the days ahead. Germany and others are signaling deals to come.

Stay tuned.

There were more risers than sliders in manufactured housing markets.  See the Bloomberg tracked stock closing ticker, below.

“Protecting & Promoting Competition” Stunned Defendant, as DOJ OK’s Anti-Trust Appeal, Plus MH Market Updates

July 12th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney7.12.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe Department of Justice’s (DOJ) anti-trust division has the slogan, “Protecting and Promoting Competition.” It sums up why this issue matters to thousands of manufactured home industry professionals, and consumers. Rephrased, this rule could impact every manufactured home industry professional, regardless of what company or organization you are working for today.  The update on the anti-trust case will be tonight’s spotlight.

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 below, just beyond the Manufactured Housing Composite Value for today.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

DOJFTC-AntiTrustProtectingPromotingCompetitionManufacturedHousingINdustryDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

CNBC confirmed today the report broken last night by Fox Business and spotlighted in our topical curation for manufactured housing industry professionals.

Per CNBC:

  • Justice Department authorized the appeal of the Time Warner-AT&T merger
  • The AT&T-Time Warner merger was “won approval in June from a federal judge, who did not impose conditions on the merger.”
  • The Justice Department argues that the combined company would decrease competition and raise prices for consumers.
  • While there are legal authorities on both sides of this issue, there are those who believe that some of the concerns raised in this anti-trust deal, could apply to Clayton Homes, Berkshire Hathaway, and their associated lending units.

The updated video by Fox Business – made available to MHProNews less than an hour ago – is shown below.

The link to yesterday evening’s more detailed report – with links to several related issues and thus potential impacts Berkshire Hathaway, Clayton Homes, et al, is found in the report linked below.  Berkshire Hathaway slid a fraction today.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

AntiTrustDivisionDeptOfJusticeManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

Depending on who you ask in MHVille, the AT&T/Time Warner deal ruling either has little meaning for manufactured housing companies, or it may have real significance. What is now being revealed, is that the Trump Administration DOJ is considering an appeal.  That will be our focus for this evening.

 

Obvious disclosure, we are not attorneys nor are we the even more specialized class of lawyers and legal scholars who work on anti-trust related issues.

That said, in recent years, as MHProNews has covered periodically, concerns about Berkshire Hathaway, Clayton Homes, and allegations of monopolistic practices have been brewing.  The Seattle Time revealed what MHProNews readers already knew, namely, that federal officials are looking at several issues that involve Clayton and their lending related units, Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance (VMF), and 21st Mortgage Corp. (21st).

As an FYI, there is an unrelated story about 21st and their lending that is brewing, which we plan to bring in the days ahead as the details become more clear.

Against that backdrop, the word that there is a battle within DOJ to appeal the AT&T case loss is noteworthy.  Fox Business’ Charlie Gasparino comments on the developments in this video. That said, the DOJ antitrust division is looking to appeal AT&T-Time Warner ruling, reports Charlie Gasparino.

 

 

Antitrust officials in the Justice Department (DOJ) have privately decided to appeal a federal judge’s approval of AT&T’s planned $85 billion takeover of Time Warner, but are facing resistance from the most important player in the process, the office of the U.S. Solicitor General.

 

The Fox Business Network has learned from people close to the DOJ’s antitrust division that an appeal of the landmark ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard Leon is all but a certainty if Solicitor General Noel Francisco approves the action.

But that approval, which is being sought by antitrust chief Makan Delrahim, faces resistance from the Solicitor General’s office, which must approve any appeal made by the DOJ either in federal courts or the Supreme Court, these people said.

The view in the Solicitor General’s office is that the government has limited capabilities of successful appeals and you don’t want to squander those on cases that are borderline,” said one government official who spoke on condition of anonymity,” said the Fox report.

Gasparino makes it sound like the anti-trust attorneys involved believed their odds are good.

That said, whatever the decision in this particular case, it supports the notion that in the foreseeable future, more anti-trust cases may be heard.  Will Clayton, 21st, VMF and Berkshire Hathaway be among them?  Or what about Amazon, Facebook and Google’s parent company, Alphabet?

Time will tell, stay tuned.

Texas Commission Talks West Texas Oil Boom, Plus Manufactured Home Market Updates

Today is the 4th day of rising markets, as investors are beginning to shrug of the tough talk on trade wars.  But will the announcement of another $200 billion in tariffs targeting China announced late today impact traders?  Time will tell.   A spotlight on Sun Communities is found, linked below.

Forbes Boast$ about Manufactured Home Community Operation

But tonight’s focus is West Texas oil.

Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton on efforts to boost pipeline capacity to keep up with drilling at the Permian Basin.  Sitton is the Texas official charged with keeping tabs on the oil industry, and he admits that the supply is outpacing oil pipeline capacity.  He says that that will be corrected through construction in the next 12 to 24 months.

 

As crude oil prices rise over a range of issues, including tensions with Iran, and Russia, U.S production will be ever more important. Another item to keep an eye on for the industry will be when activity starts taking place in ANWAR – which was opened up by legislation enacted by the Trump Administration. That might, just might, cause a wave of factory built homes moving “north to Alaska” at that time.

CNNmoney7.9.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsBefore diving into tonight’s feature, millions will tune in tonight to see who President Donald J. Trump will nominate to replace retiring Justice Anthony “Tony” Kennedy on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). Some have speculated on a variety of supposed top contenders. An interesting op-ed by Senator Orin Hatch May provide a clue, when it uses the pronoun “she” to describe the pending nominee. 

According to the often-announced plan, sometime after 9 PM ET, the nation will know.

That said, beyond the data for today’s tracked manufactured home industry connected equities, the focus for tonight’s is what Fox Business called a “risky” trade war.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

It may surprise some to learn that a third-party research found that Fox News is roughly a 50-50 split on coverage that is for-or-against the president and Trump Administration policies.

Seriously?

While many Fox News and Fox Business hosts are pro-POTUS Trump, not all are.

Further, many of the shows feature panel discussion, where they bring in Democratic, or so-called RINO, and “never Trump” backers.

 

The video above is an example of a report that is largely negative about the Trump trade gambit. It isn’t until the very end of the video that you get a sense of why the president is taking this tactic in the first place.

The interview with Forbes’ Steve Forbes is also tentative about the issue of trade.

But there are voices in the business world that think that this is precisely the right strategy, and it is the right time, because there is a nice cushion fueled by more jobs, rising wages, lower taxes, more common sense regulations and the like.

Time will tell.  But as Marty Lavin, or CNBC’s Cramer have observed, the time is right for this battle. If not now, when will the U.S. stand up to China’s theft of intellectual property, or other problematic trade practices?

Uproar Over ELS’ Sam Zell Comments Continues

June 22nd, 2018 Comments off

 

SamZellP-ssyWordFlapVulgarityELSChairmanControversyDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Billionaire Sam Zell has been removed as a keynote speaker at a Mizuho Americas conference following a vulgar comment he made about women earlier this month,” reports Bloomberg.

 

I never promoted a woman because she was a woman,” Sam Zell, chairman of Equity Group Investments (EGI) and Equity LifeStyle Properties (ELS), said at the REITweek investor conference hosted by NAREIT in New York. ELS’ president is a woman, Margarette Nader, and an interview with her is at this link.

I never demoted a woman because she was a woman. My issue is what do you do, what do you produce, how do you interrelate to the rest of the business,” Zell said.

I don’t think there’s ever been a, ‘We gotta get more p—- on the block, OK?'” Zell said.

 

Zell Scrubbed from Presenters List

Zell was slated as the speaker during lunch at the Mizuho global REIT and real estate conference on June 27 at the Lotte New York Palace hotel, according to a May invitation that described him as a “prolific real estate entrepreneur,” said the Chicago Tribune.

Terry Holt, a representative for Zell at Chicago-based Equity Group Investments Inc., said he canceled his trip to New York due to a scheduling conflict. Zell spoke at the same conference last year,Bloomberg said, adding “A spokesperson for Mizuho Americas, an arm of Mizuho Financial Group Inc., wasn’t immediately available to comment.”

Zell infamously told an [female] Orlando Sentinel journalist “f— you!” when answering her questions about journalistic priorities in 2008, shortly after acquiring the paper, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Ironically, Zell has been publicizing a new book of his called, “Am I Being too Subtle? Straight Talk From a Business Rebel.”

Zell’s Apology

In an email to attendees dated June 11, the conference organizers said Zell had reached out after the event to apologize for the remark and “express his regret” to the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or Nareit, community,” per Bloomberg.

But Zell’s name no longer appears on an updated schedule sent to clients in the past week, said the Chicago Tribune.

Holt said that Zell’s next speaking engagement is in the fall, but declined to identify the event.

Zell has previously addressed manufactured home industry community operators in a fall event.  Two articles published by MHProNews – at the links here and here – cover Zell’s statements about the communities industry, finance, and manufactured housing in depth.  Zell’s statements cited by MHProNews were all confirmed by a senior ELS official.

 

Testing the Limits

All my life I’ve wanted to test my limits. Whatever goals you set, you need to constantly readjust them so that at no time do you reach your goals before your time is up. When it’s all said and done, the petroleum of the real estate industry has always been capital,” said Zell per QuoteWise.

 

Zell appeared earlier this month on CNBC, where he spoke about the economy, tax reform and investing. That video with the colorful mogul is posted above.

Several media outlets covering the p-word bruhaha have noted the timing of the vulgarity, given the increased sensitivity due to the #MeToo movement.
