CNNmoney1.15.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsBroader markets rose today, as did many of the manufactured housing industry tracked stocks. But among the more talked-about issues by investment watchers and business sites this afternoon are the growing concerns that the partial federal shutdown will have more of an economic impact than was initially thought. That will be our market focus this evening.

There are now voices, including within the Trump Administration, that believe that the partial federal shutdown will have roughly double the economic drag as was first believed.

 

A discussion of some of that topic is found in the Fox Business video, posted below.

 

 

At the core of this is still a battle over the border, barriers, and immigration policy.

There is no doubt short term pain for a growing number of citizens.  At the same time, how is that balanced over the long-term pain experienced by millions?  This debate won’t end soon, that’s obvious.  Some related reports can be accessed for more insights via the linked text/image boxes below.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, Clayton Homes, 21st Mortgage Corp and their “Strategic Moat,” Plus Manufactured Housing Equities Updates

January 14th, 2019 No comments

CNNmoney1.14.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsRManufactured home equities closed mixed again today, and the broader markets overall took their second closing dip that started on Friday. Ideally and historically – given that there is an affordable housing crisis – manufactured housing stocks should be more durable than they have been in recent years.  Why the shift, from years gone by?  That will be our investor focus for this evening.

Sometimes the best hiding place is the
one that’s in plain sight.”

― Stephenie Meyer, The Host.

Sometimes it’s best to hide in plain sight.”

― David Estes, The Moon Dwellers – both quotes per Goodreads.

The 800-pound gorilla in manufactured housing production is Clayton Homes, a part of the Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate.

Let’s start this evening by defining the term, ‘the Moat,’ as described by Investopedia.

 

InvestopediaWhatIsEconomicMoatManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

If you want to understand the factory-built housing industry’s arguably incredible potential – vs it’s poor performance in the last 15+ years – one must understand Clayton Homes and their strategic Moat.

When Jeff Bezos’ Amazon Alexa Fund said they calculate the potential of factory built homes at some $330 billion a year, and manufactured housing only did some $6.5 billion in 2017, one must ask, what’s going on?

This feature should be viewed as a ‘hub’ that cross links several related reports.  No one article will cover it all. So Let’s tee this up in a simple fashion.

Almost a year has gone by since the Urban Institute asked the insightful question:

“Manufactured homes could ease the affordable housing crisis.
So why are so few being made?”

The first spoke of the hub is this article with videos of Warren Buffett, Kevin Clayton and others, linked below.  It’s been updated today with a few more useful items.

Bridging Gap$, Affordable Housing Solution Yields Higher Pay, More Wealth, But Corrupt, Rigged Billionaire’s Moat is Barrier

The next spoke of the hub is the use of nonprofits and trade associations. We’ll keep this simple with this report, linked below, that quotes a former Manufactured Housing Institute president at length.

Former Manufactured Housing Institute President, Manufactured Home Owners, Urban Institute, and You

 

Hub number three? It’s an analysis of a report in the Atlantic, that cites Clayton Homes, and correctly predicted certain trend retail lines.

 

Examining Derek Thompson’s Atlantic Report on ‘Mobile Home’ Retail Market as Fastest Dying Business In America

 

 

Next consider this surprising factoid. 

While the Urban Institute’s report was useful to manufactured housing, a close look at it by an informed industry professional would reveal certain flaws. Nevertheless, overall, it was a plus, as were reports by the National Association of Realtors, Bloomberg and others in 2018.  So why didn’t MHI highlight those on their website?  How could a trade body that claims it wants the industry to grow miss powerful positive, third party reports to bolster their case? Oversight?  Or part of the Clayton strategic moat?

 

Manufactured Housing Institute on Urban Institute, Bloomberg, National Association of Realtors Reports Praising Manufactured Homes

For those who may wonder why there aren’t more trade associations in manufactured housing, as there are in mainstream housing, the automotive, or RV industries – to name but a few – that’s a point that the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform has pushed for years.  They assert that Berkshire dominated MHI is the latest iteration of a longer trend.  The bigger firms have long dominated MHI.  If so, a flawed policies at the ‘umbrella’ association MHI can be used to consolidate the industry by slowly throttling smaller players.  Are MHARR alone in that belief? Apparently not, because a new trade association has recently emerged, accusing MHI of failing independents.

Independent National Manufactured Housing Post-Production Association Takes Major Step

 

MHARR’s 2017 report examining this issue in depth is linked here.

MHARR Releases Study Recommending Independent Collective Representation for Post-Production Sector

For a nation that’s listened to the phrase ‘rigged system’ since 2015, that Senator Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald J. Trump made popular, it’s interesting to note that MHARR points to their concerns that MHI and the Berkshire brands have essentially ‘rigged’ the Congressionally mandated Duty to Serve (DTS) part of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008.  Here’s but one of their takes on the DTS issue.  Keep in mind, it’s an attorney who is dotting i’s and crossing t’s that is writing the following.

 

MHARR Exposes GSES’ Failure On Chattel Financing Before Congress

There are numerous voices, past and present, associated with MHI who have been quoted in the report below.  Those varied voices shed lights on different aspects of how the ‘moat’ was built, even though they were not using that phrase.  Some make it clear that MHI is a tool of Berkshire Hathaway.

 

Why Is Manufactured Housing Struggling During an Affordable Housing Crisis? Former MHI President, VP, Other’s Quotable Insights

 

That’s plenty of reading for a while, right?  But once you or anyone starts to get their heads around this, you’ll understand why Maxine Waters, and 3 other Democrats have leveled similar charges against Clayton, their affiliated lenders, as have others across the left-right divide.

As federal investigations press on, one question is, will Democrats and the Trump Administration work to unrig the system?

Amazon, Google – Both Into Factory Building – Want More Influence, Insights In Your Life, Plus MH Market Updates

January 11th, 2019 No comments

CNNmoney1.11.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe markets closed down modestly today, the first dip in a week. Manufactured home connected tracked stocks closed mixed.

Our focus this evening will be two firms that already have enormous economic influence, Amazon and Apple – both of which have their own initiatives involving factory building. While the Daily Business News on MHProNews periodically spotlights the hits and misses caused by Berkshire Hathaway brands in MHVille, and their oversized influence over the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), that must be balanced by the reality that these are not the only factors that impact HUD Code manufactured home professionals daily.  An insight tonight into what Google and Amazon are doing, as they seek to increase their influence over your personal and professional life will be our focus.

Let’s tease an upcoming report on the impact of monopolistic practices in America, how that impacts businesses, investors, and consumers, as we look back to a report linked below on the New York Times last fall that touches on aspects of the same issue.

 

New York Times-David Leonhardt-“The Monopolization of America,” Manufactured Housing Slant

 

Now, let’s consider a report today from CNBC, that spotlighted Google and Amazon’s race to see ever more of what you see, and do – and they make money from all of it, of course.

 

In taking a step back, and looking, one sees a trend towards a small number of mega-corporations dominating the U.S. What will that do to small business, politics, and other issues that impact manufactured housing?

We’ll remind readers about the Creepy Line, because the U.S. has arguably blown past it.

Keep your pants zipped if you’re a married man with another woman. That was the short version of the takeaway from the 1987 hit movie, Fatal Attraction.

FatalAttractionMichaelDouglasGlennClose1987MovieWiki

Fast forward to 2019.

CNBC reports that the wealthy are obviously more targeted by hackers than the ordinary are.  Here are some tips, followed by a video on what the meaning of all this might mean for Amazon investors.

 

•             Very wealthy people are often targets for criminal hackers, tabloids, and rivals, but there are steps anyone can take to avoid exposing sensitive personal and business communications.

•             Watch your passwords, download a secure messaging app and make sure the other party you’re texting with is on board.

•             Secure texting shouldn’t be viewed as something “shady” — it’s needed for everything from sharing confidential business plans to responding to breaches.

 

 

One last thought on this, is that this does have a factory-built housing tie in.  Bezos’ led Amazon Alexa Fund has put a few million into a prefab operation in 2018. When there’s tens of billions available, don’t think for a second that its likely to be the only investment by one of the largest firms in the world into factory built housing.

WhyDidStocksTankDecember2018PlusManufacturedHomeStockMarketUpdates

Most manufactured housing industry track stocks rose today, as a look at the Bloomberg closing ticker on our evening market report reflects.

The question has been asked for weeks, what was behind the market sell-off in the final quarter of 2018 – notably in December? Here are some views on that subject from CNBC.

  • First, on the upside, the 2017 tax cut ‘was not a sugar high,’ says one of the CNBC panelists, who says he doesn’t see a reason to fear recession until at least 2021 or 2022.
  • In recent days, Apple, Constellation Brands, Lennar and Samsung have lowered financial forecasts.
  • For the fourth quarter, 72 S&P 500 companies have issued earnings warnings, twice as many as have issued positive guidance, according to FactSet.
  • Analysts are now looking for single-digit earnings growth for the next three quarters of this year.

 

The Fed is expected to be less aggressive this year too, as the latest meeting minutes and other indicators suggest.

 

 

Volatility is still expected, is a common view, but that will be due in part to global and political concerns.  The U.S. economy, as MHProNews has reported for months, is still looking sound.

The National Association and CNBC reports this evening that Chinese buyers are expanding their reach in the U.S. housing market, as middle class home buyers, with numbers seeking financing, are getting in on the act.

  • For 6 straight years, Chinese buyers have been the top foreign buyers in both units and dollar volume of residential housing, according to the National Association of Realtors ™ (NAR), and now they expanding to new, lower-price tiers.
  • More middle-class Chinese buyers are searching for lower-priced homes and they are using mortgages much more often, said the NAR.
  • While California is still the favorite among Chinese buyers, they’re moving into other markets, such as Texas, Georgia, and Florida.

 

  • Chinese consumers may have soured on some American products, like iPhones, but they have only sweetened on U.S. residential real estate,” said CNBC.

According the Wikipedia, about 5.6 percent of those in the U.S. are Asian Americans. But Foremost research reflects that only about 1 percent of manufactured home owners are Asian in origin.

Allianz Chief Economic Adviser Mohamed El-Erian says that the U.S. economy overall is a “very good place,” but is concerned that that internal and external headwinds could slow further growth.

 

 

One is self-inflicted wounds — Fed miscommunication being an example,” El-Erian told FOX Business today. “And the other is spillbacks from what’s happening in the rest of the world and from volatile markets.”

We’ll let the video speak for itself, while linking up prior reports that make similar projections.

The volatility is real. They question is, how much of it is based upon overhyped concerns, when the economy and many of the companies being traded are basically sound?  Once more, it must be noted that manufactured housing equities have been floating largely in conjunction with the broader markets.  In theory, a stronger manufactured housing sector should be better able to ride such ups and downs.  Affordable housing is always in demand.

Manufactured Home Production Decline Accelerates in November 2018

But sadly, with the industry’s purported ‘leaders’ clearly failing at promoting, educating, and protecting the industry as needed, at the very time when our products and services should be ‘flying off the shelf,’ the industry is in the third month of stalled, and sliding production.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The Daily Business News on MHProNews has been reporting for months what the latest economic numbers once more reflected.

The economy is sound, and the rousing jobs report underscored it. But the markets have been roiled for months.

Per CNBC,

At 8:30 a.m., the Labor Department said the U.S. economy added 312,000 jobs in December. That blew past an expectation of 176,000 jobs. Later on Friday morning, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank will be patient in raising rates, quelling fears of tighter monetary policy in the near future.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 746.94 points higher at 23,433.16, or 3.3 percent, and briefly rose more than 800 points. The S&P 500 rallied 3.4 percent to 2,531.94, with the tech sector gaining more than 4 percent. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 4.26 percent to 6,738.86. This was a rebound from Thursday’s plunge, which was triggered by a massive drop in Apple’s stock.

Stocks took off after Powell hinted the central bank could pause its rate hikes, something this beaten-down market was waiting for. “As always, there is no preset path for policy,” Powell said. “And particularly with muted inflation readings that we’ve seen coming in, we will be patient as we watch to see how the economy evolves.”

 

What the data also reflects is that manufactured housing ought to be roaring. For a look at some recent data points, see the linked textbox/images to access that report.

First, the facts. Most manufactured home tracked stocks are at less than half of their 1-year peak.

Last night, this MHProNews market report forecast today’s declines. It wasn’t rocket science, because when you watch the market trends, you start to get a feel for it.  Note, we have no positions in these tracked stocks.  As a trade publication, and as a consulting and professional services provider, we are transparently pro-manufactured home industry, pro-MH owners, and pro-consumer.

Markets Tick Up Slightly, But Tomorrow Could Be Ugly – Apple Nosedives, Plus MH Market Updates

 

Then, look at the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulator Reform (MHARR) news release to MHProNews about new home production, issued just a few hours ago.

 

Manufactured Home Production Decline Accelerates in November 2018

 

Next, let’s get the market overview, per CNBC this evening.

U.S. stocks fell sharply on Thursday following a dire quarterly warning from Apple. The iPhone maker blamed a slowing Chinese economy for the shortfall, intensifying fears that the global economy may be slowing down because of the ongoing trade war.

A weaker-than-expected reading on U.S. manufacturing added to those fears.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 660.02 points, or 2.8 percent, to 22,686.22 as Apple shares led the decline. The 30-stock index tumbled to its low of the day right before the close, trading down as much as 707.83 points.

The S&P 500 pulled back 2.47 percent to 2,447.89 as the tech sector fell 5.07 percent. The Nasdaq Composite tumbled 3 percent to 6,463.50, snapping a five-day winning streak, as Apple’s stock dropped nearly 10 percent. Thursday marked Apple’s worst session since 2013.

Apple said it sees first-quarter revenue of $84 billion vs. a previous guidance of a range of $89 billion and $93 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $91.3 billion for the period, according to the consensus estimate from FactSet. Apple blamed most of the revenue shortfall for struggling business in China.”

 

 

Jeff Cox does a nice job in this video, and he makes the Warren Buffett quote, including some Buffett audio, in the video posted above.

For our growing numbers of newcomers to this site, let’s disclose that we see reasons to believe that Warren Buffett’s operations in manufactured housing could well have crossed some regulatory red-lines.  You can learn more about that at the report, linked below.

 

Bridging Gap$, Affordable Housing Solution Yields Higher Pay, More Wealth, But Corrupt, Rigged Billionaire’s Moat is Barrier

 

As a long time Buffett watcher, let’s note that while no one could dispute his track record, there is a case to be made that his “strategic moat” – at least with respect to the manufactured housing industry, could in fact be open for antitrust action.  Buffett may have alluded to this when Bloomberg reported last year that one of his few concerns is about Berkshire Hathaway being broken up.

Buffett’s quote below is sound.

 

TheyShouldTryBeFearfulWhenOthersGreedyAndGreedyWhenOthersAreFearfulWarrenBuffettQuotePhotoDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

 

The question is, does Buffett’s Berkshire brands tip firms – via various manipulations – into problematic positions that his firms then takes advantage of?

GoodBusinessIsLikeAStrongCastleWithaDeepMoatAroundItSharksIntheMoatIwantItUntouchableWarrenBuffettQuoteDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Sometimes the truth is hiding in plain sight. Follow the facts, evidence, and the money.

The problem with Apple, the FAANG stocks and Berkshire Hathaway is arguably the problem of monopolization. When huge stocks slide, it does tend to drag the broader markets with it.

The solution is antitrust action by state, federal, and plaintiffs’ attorneys.  Or what Scott Galloway called putting oxygen back into the system.

For more on ‘inside baseball’ on what’s brewing under the surface of manufactured housing, see the reports linked below.

Finally, take heart.  There are some good firms in this industry.  In normal – historic – market conditions for manufactured housing, the industry ought to be soaring, not snoring.

A good way to take advantage of this time would be to own a company, or a large stake, and think long-term.  It could be a far safer bet than many stocks. Learn more, linked here.

Markets Tick Up Slightly, But Tomorrow Could Be Ugly – Apple Nosedives, Plus MH Market Updates

January 2nd, 2019 No comments

CNNmoney1.2.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsOn the first day of trading in 2019, the broader market stocks rose marginally. Manufactured housing stocks tracked closed mixed.

But watch tomorrow closely, because the announcement by Apple has cause their stock – and others in the tech sector to drop, per MarketWatch and others. It’s a troubling reality that manufactured housing, which should be more resistant to such market moves is in part held hostage by other market forces.  That will be our focus this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

MarketsTickUpSlightlyButTomorrowCouldBeUglyAppleNosedivesPlusMHMarketUpdates

MarketWatch, Yahoo News and scores of others are reporting that prior concerns over reporting unit sales by Apple on their iconic iPhones were realized this evening.

The tech giant, which became the only public U.S. company to reach a $1 trillion valuation last year before a fourth-quarter collapse for its shares, confirmed the fears that led to the stock decline by lowering its forecast Wednesday afternoon,” said MarketWatch tonight. “In a letter to shareholders, Chief Executive Tim Cook said that Apple will report much lower sales than previously expected, largely due to slowing iPhone sales and pressure in China.”

MarketAppleAfterHoursDailyBusinessNewsMHPronews

While we anticipated some challenges in key emerging markets, we did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in Greater China,” Tim Cook wrote. “In fact, most of our revenue shortfall to our guidance, and over 100% of our year-over-year worldwide revenue decline, occurred in Greater China across iPhone, Mac and iPad.”

This rolls into the subject of China and the trade deal.  While China still claims to be growing their economy, some claim that the communist nation is inflating their figures to mask the impact of tariffs and other economic headwinds they are facing.

While both China and the U.S. want a deal, each think the other has the weaker hand.  Chinese leaders – for instance – think President Trump’s administration was weakened by the Democratic take over of the House of Representatives during the midterms.  Meanwhile, news out of China and the serious plunge of their markets make U.S. trade negotiators think they have the edge.  While U.S. markets took a ‘headline hit’ in 2018, the fundamentals of the economy remains strong.

What It Means for MHVille?

It won’t be a surprise if Apple’s after hours drop this evening results in the FAANG stocks also sliding, which could lead to a broader market drop tomorrow.

What that should be telling objective observers is that FAANG, or other huge conglomerates like Berkshire Hathaway, are having an disproportionate impact on the broader markets – and also on the economy.

Earlier today, the Daily Business News on MHProNews reported that the roughly $1 trillion-dollar Nuveen gave a bullish outlook on the manufactured housing sector.  That’s justified, in term of potential.

But what historically has been a resilient, counter-cyclical industry – manufactured housing (MH) in general – is now more accurate for the MH Community sector in specific.

Amid Market Turmoil, Nearly $1 Trillion Dollar Investment Fund Nuveen Bullish on Manufactured Housing, Provides Investor Outlook

There is a serious need for company leaders to re-evaluate several signals that MHProNews has been reporting, especially during the closing days of 2018.

It’s not personal. Facts are what they are.  The industry’s reality-checks are arguably objective facts-evidence-and-professional issues. To learn more inside baseball, see the related report, by clicking the linked text/box below.
