Future Rate Signaling to Fed? POTUS Trump Wants Heritage’s Stephen Moore on Federal Reserve Board, Plus MH Stock Updates

March 22nd, 2019 No comments

CNNmone3.22.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsYes, the breaking news is that the Mueller reports has been delivered to the Department of Justice.  That will have more news value in terms of the markets in the days ahead.  The Daily Business News on MHProNews has said from the outset that no collusion with Russia will be the outcome.  The rests is who can spin the news the most their desired way. So tonight, of more immediate potential interest is President Donald J. Trump indicating his desire to nominate to the Federal Reserve critic Stephen Moore, of the Heritage Foundation.  On a down day, that will be our focus for tonight.

 

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.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

FutureRateSignalingFedPOTUSTrumpWantsHeritagesStephenMooreFederalReserveBoadPlusMHStockUpdates

There is plenty of other market moving news captured in our left-right bullets above.  So why this topic tonight?

Arguably, the president is trying to neutralize what he thinks has been an artificial headwind to stocks and the economy.

First, here is what CNBC said tonight.

  • President Donald Trump decides to choose Stephen Moore for a Federal Reserve board spot after discussing a column in which Moore criticized the central bank.
  • Why isn’t [Moore] the Fed chairman?” Trump asks rhetorically after reading the column, according to a senior administration official.
  • Despite both Moore’s and Trump’s criticism of Fed Chair Jerome Powell, the central bank chief’s job appears safe for now, according to the official.


What makes this interesting is that POTUS Trump, clearly an unconventional president, may be setting up an even more interesting challenge to the Fed’s influence over the markets.  That will be the undertow to watch.

But frankly, one could make the case that political activity is having more impact on markets and money.  That and media bias – with some 90 percent of mainstream news tilted against the president, per third party research – are the bigger perceptual headwinds.

Facebook’s “Network Effect – Value Destruction,” Password Scandal Latest Headache, plus MH Market Updates

March 21st, 2019 No comments

CNNmone3.21.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsA couple of billion folks globally use Facebook (FB) globally, hundreds of millions of them right here in the U.S.A. Manufactured housing and other marketers often use FB, as do politicos, or the latest crazed killer – anyone trying to get the word out – on whatever.  Voices on the left and right are already gunning for Facebook for antitrust, privacy, bias, censorship, and a range of issues.  They are certainly not alone, but the reveal today is that some 600 million passwords were unprotected.  That suggests once more a lax attitude about user privacy, says an expert in our spotlight report this evening.  On a day that markets largely rose, Facebook – the F in the FAANG stocks – will be our focus for this evening.

 

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.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

FacebooksNetworkEffectValueDestructionPasswordScandalLatestHeadachePlusMHMarketUpdates

First, some headlines and a pull quotes from CNBC, followed by some analysis beyond what that source’s panel discussion reflected.

 

Facebook employees had access to millions of user passwords

·        The company releases a statement Thursday saying it would be notifying those affected in the near future.

·        The incident may have affected between 200 million and 600 million customers and has been ongoing since 2012, according to the report by cybersecurity journalist Brian Krebs.

·        As part of a routine security review in January, we found that some user passwords were being stored in a readable format within our internal data storage systems,” Facebook said in a statement. “This caught our attention because our login systems are designed to mask passwords using techniques that make them unreadable. We have fixed these issues and as a precaution we will be notifying everyone whose passwords we have found were stored in this way.”

·        Facebook, however, has been under intense scrutiny due to several years of privacy and security scandals that have earned the company criticism from customers and inquiries and fines from several regulatory agencies, particularly in the European Union.

·        But Facebook’s scandals haven’t significantly dented the company’s count of active daily users, which rose last quarter despite an extended social media campaign by Facebook critics encouraging privacy-minded customers to delete their accounts.

FacebookMarketTrendYoYMarch212019DailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

What’s Ahead?

Senator Elizabeth Warren and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful said that she favors a breakup of the company, but she also claimed that doing so would not impact users experience.

President Donald J. Trump and his 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale have both blasted Facebook for bias. But it is also true that recent reports reveal that the Trump campaign has done more ad buys on Facebook recently than all other Democratic candidates in the 2020 race so far. But that dynamic may change, as the number of declared Democrats swell, along with millions in the campaign coffers of some of them.

The risk from Facebook and the other FAANGs is multiple layered.  They include, but are not limited to:

·        Market power, squeezing out a growing number of publishers, as FB and Google most notably dominate the ad market.

·        Their ability to influence or even control the narrative on political issues.  The Creepy Line video documentary featured on MHProNews last year went into depth on that topic.

·        As Amazon is demonstrating, these giants can get into other industries. 

·        The risk from monopolization of the marketplace is significant.

The E.U. just levied another $1.7 billion-dollar fine on Google.  That’s a cost of doing business for them, but would represent nearly 20 percent of the value of all of manufactured housing’s retail sales in 2018.

#OpenMarkets, and #DeFaangBM are important themes for long-term players in manufactured housing to consider. The U.S. has historically taken antitrust seriously. While interest in antitrust is arguably up on both sides of the political aisle, it remains to be seen just how aggressive the Trump Administration, the GOP, or Democrats will actually be in the face of some of the most powerful corporations on the planet, which includes Facebook.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Fed Gives Markets, President What Was Wanted — Rates and Balance Sheet Changes Announced

 

FedCavesRateHikesBalanceSheetSmootherSailingAheadPlusManufacturedHomeMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Per left-of-center CNBC…

·        The central bank says it will begin in May to taper the amount of proceeds it allows to roll off each month and will end the program in September.

·        The amount for Treasurys will drop to $15 billion in May. Under the current program, it is allowing $30 billion in Treasury proceeds to roll off.

·        The total of Treasurys and MBS once totaled more than $4.2 trillion and has been reduced by about $450 billion in the program that began in October 2017.

 

 

Part of the risk matrix includes Brexit and U.S. China trade talks.  Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said that both Europe and China have slowed significantly. 

By comparison, the U.S. is doing far better.

 

 

The above noted, this has not been the only artificial headwinds that have buffeted the markets.  Sam Zell observed in 2017 that one can’t overlook the impact of politics on investing. 

If Democrats hold the House, and/or take the Senate and the White House, expect a sea change in the investment outlook.

NationalAssociationHomeBuildersNAHBCEOJerryHowardDeclingingHousingAffordabilityPlusMHMarketUPdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Besides the NAHB’s Jerry Howard and the rest of this panel discussing that’s causing the dip in housing affordability, there is also a discussion about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s housing plan.

 

One of the panelists laments rents over 30 percent of income but appears to have an inadequate sense of the law of supply and demand.

As is often the case on such discussion, manufactured housing is not even mentioned.  This is a problem for the industry, which 20 years ago was 1 in 3 new housing starts in many states.  Now, it is more like 1 in 10, even though affordability is an issue.  Manufactured homes are snoring, instead of roaring.

See the related reports for a new set of outlines on causes, effects, and the path toward solutions that will spark more manufactured home industry growth.

Beto Mania! Fox, MSNBC, CNBC Weigh-In 2020 Democratic Contender, plus Manufactured Housing Stock Updates

March 18th, 2019 No comments

CNNmone3.18.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsDoes Beto O’Rourke have a shot at being a big contender in 2020?” asked Fox News, which finds its answer from MSNBC which says Francis “Beto” O’Rourke raised a stunning $6.1 million in 24 hours, per the candidate’s campaign. If so, that tops the haul by Senator Bernie Sanders. On a day when the broader markets rose, most manufactured home tracked stocks did too, we will look ahead at what investors must ponder for 2020. Two videos on “Beto Mania” – one from each side of the left-right spectrum, plus some sobering concerns raised by left-of-center CNBC about what looks like conflicts of interest for former congressman O’Rourke.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

BetoManiaFoxMSNBCCNZBCWeighIn2020DemocraticCondenderPlusManufacturedHousingStockUPdates

There are reports that a Reuters journalist who was doing a book on Francis “Beto” O’Rourke held back a potentially damaging report about the candidate during the 2018 Senate race against Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R).  That report claims that O’Rourke was part of a computer hacker group some years ago, in his mid-teens.  If so, ouch.

3 quick takes on the enthusiasm among some for Beto, first from Fox News, then from MSNBC.

Fox News on Beto mania.

 

 

MSNBC Morning Joe earlier today.

 

 

Then, some pull quotes from CNBC, that raised a different concern, but also tied to tech. Namely, that while 45 percent of his support came from small donors, the balance came from big donors, often tied with big tech.

 

  • O’Rourke – who announced Monday that he raked in a record $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his 2020 campaign – and several of his Democratic rivals have made it a point to distance themselves from corporate money. Likewise, perceived coziness with big tech could pose political risks with rising bipartisan calls to crack down on and regulate the industry.
  • During his shockingly close loss to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in deep red Texas, O’Rourke raised tens of millions of dollars, much of it from so-called small donors, or people who give $200 or less. As the Democratic former congressman touted his success among smaller donors, while rejecting money from corporations and super PACs, he also reaped the benefits from bigger-dollar donors, such as executives and employees from major tech companies such as AppleFacebookand Amazon.
  • Amazon’s top spokesman, Jay Carney, gave $1,500directly to the O’Rourke campaign. Carney previously served as White House press secretary to President Barack Obama, to whom O’Rourke has been compared. Brian Olsavsky, the company’s financial chief, wrote a check for $2,700 to O’Rourke’s 2018 campaign, which is the most an individual can give in an election. Amazon employees, overall, gave $75,751 to his campaign.
  • O’Rourke finished the 2018 campaign having raised $80 million, with 45 percent coming from small donors. The rest came from people giving more than $200, including important players at Facebook and Apple.
  • Chris Espinosa, who was designated Apple’s eighth employee after the company was founded in the 1970s, gave O’Rourke $2,700. Apple employees gave O’Rourke’s campaign just over $90,000 during the 2018 campaign.
  • Alex Stamos, who was Facebook’s chief security officer until August, also gave $2,700to O’Rourke’s campaign. Stamos told CNBC that he has not decided whom to support among the Democratic field. But he did say he is advising campaigns on cybersecurity in the wake of Russia’s interference and hacking during the 2016 cycle.
  • “One of the great benefits of not being a professional political operative is that I don’t have to pick sides 20 months before the general election,” Stamos said. “I’ve been trying to be helpful to multiple Democratic campaigns, and right now my focus is on helping them get their campaign technology stacks set up in a secure manner.”

It seems that campaign season barely took a pause to sort out who won the 2018 midterms, before gearing up for the 2020 cycle.  See related reports, further below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

KristinaRasmussenVPFederalAffairsFGATrumpAdminWelfareReform2020PlanDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

 

There are several topics covered in this NBC News video dubbed as “White House Defends President Donald Trump’s Budget On National Debt, Medicare, More.”  At about the 4 minute mark, the topic of welfare reform is directly addressed, although aspects of entitlement spending are raised prior to that mark.

Kristina Rasmussen is vice president of federal affairs at the Foundation for Government Accountability. In a column on Fox Business, Rasmussen made some interesting points on the issue of welfare reform in the 2020 budget.

 

  • There is a near-record number of able-bodied adults dependent on food stamps today—and only eight percent of this group work full-time jobs. According to government data, 28 million able-bodied adults are on Medicaid, and most aren’t working at all,” said Kaye.
  • Other would-be workers are being kept on the sidelines by a broken federal disability insurance program that disincentivizes work—similar to the welfare system.”
  • Still more are dissuaded by government-imposed barriers, high occupational licensing fees and lengthy education and training requirements that often do not align with a given profession.”
  • One such reform would bring work requirement uniformity across federal welfare programs by requiring recipients of Medicaid, the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program and the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) rental assistance program to work, train or volunteer at least part-time in order to receive welfare benefits. This would only impact those welfare recipients who have the ability to work — whether part-time or full-time.”
  • Research shows that work requirements have powerful impacts on those stuck in a welfare rut, taxpayers and the economy. In Florida, after work requirements went into effect, those leaving welfare found work in over 1,000 industries. In Arkansas, the same group returning to the workforce more than tripled their incomes within two years.”

The reforms would eliminate waste while preserving the benefits for those in need, said Rasmussen.

  • Bold reforms that emphasize the importance of work are exactly what our economy needs to kick it into high gear and to reach the president’s goal of sustained GDP growth of three percent or better.”
  • To do this, the nation’s workforce must expand by millions. We have the people to meet that demand. Now we need the policies to match.”

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

HedgeFundDumpsSharesSkylineChampionPlusManufacturedHousingStockUpdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

Some of the online ‘market reports’ – for whatever reasons – like the ones below are a mix of what is arguably junk mixed with useable nuggets of information.

They are mostly of necessity, backward looking.  So what happened in Q4, while interesting, may or may not reflect what happened today or more recently.

With those ‘stating the obvious’ points noted, this evening we’ll look at two serious moves, in the wrong direction for Skyline-Champion (NYSE:SKY).

First, the major pull quotes, and then some commentary.

LivesAdviceSKYchampionHOlerCenterbridgePartnersLPTrimmedPositionby29.23MillionShareValuesDeclined

Lives Centerbridge Partners Lp decreased its stake in Skyline Champion Corporation (SKY) by 31.63% based on its latest 2018Q4 regulatory filing with the SEC.

The hedge fund held 4.51M shares of the homebuilding company at the end of 2018Q4, valued at $66.30 million, down from 6.60 million at the end of the previous reported quarter.

The stock decreased 2.78% or $0.57 during the last trading session, reaching $19.95. About 463,122 shares traded. Skyline Champion Corporation (NYSEMKT:SKY) has risen 0.46% since March 14, 2018 and is uptrending. It has underperformed by 3.91% the S&P500.

12.2018.

With that backdrop, what this longtime industry observer sees – and we have interest, insights, but no direct dog in the equities market hunt – is that many investors seem to have only a modest thought about how the controversy at Cavco could potentially spill over to some of the larger players at the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI).

Antitrust interest in the U.S. is heating up, as several of our reports have tracked, especially over the last two years. It’s a thing in Europe too, where some observers say its been a stronger movement, and that the U.S. is playing catch up.

MHI puts out an antitrust statement at their meetings. While there is evidence and allegations from several mainstream sources, including a ground breaking report linked below, none of them have yet risen to the status of a formal case being announced.  Will such an announcement by DoJ, the FTC, or plaintiffs attorneys occur in 2019?  2020?  2021?

Time will tell, but linked below via the text image box shown are purported Exhibits 1, 2, and 3.

Perhaps more important to several MHI members, is once the shoe drops on allegations of antitrust activity among Berkshire Hathaway owned brands – and we believe that it is likely to occur, for reasons that will be covered in a future report that builds on the one above – the question then becomes, is there spillover effect to other larger players in the industry?  Recall that the SEC declined to confirm or deny that they are looking into antitrust concerns with respect to Cavco Industries, and their legal woes connected to Joe Stegmayer, former Cavco President but still MHI Chairman.

JoeStegmayerCavcoCVCOMIChairBrianMontgomeryHUDFHASameLandyUMHPresidentDailyBusinessNewsMHPronews

 

MHProNews has obtained some communications as news tips that reflect statements by Stegmayer that some may say makes his statements look more-weighty than his now reduced title at Cavco ought to reflect. Stegmayer’s historic ties to Clayton Homes are clear.

What may be a problem for some tracked stocks, could at the same time benefit others.

But perhaps the most heady consideration is MHI’s ongoing pattern of posturing efforts for growth, when they are doing – or not doing – common sense steps that arguably help some brands, while harming others.  See the related reports, for more details.

ManufacturedHomesAsPercentageofSinglefamilyHousingStartsDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsSkylineChampionSKY780x943

The answer some in the industry give to the last question n the red box above is market rigging. Those allegations routinely involve MHI in some form or fashion. If so, that’s a potential risk for spillover effects beyond the company(ies) most commonly mentioned.

 

Bottom line for tonight.  The industry is under-performing. SKY’s own graphic above says as much. The national association that claims to represent ‘all segments of factory-built housing’ has been rebuked by both an independent producers association, a newly emerging community association, and several of their own members and staff, past and present.

The hubris at MHI is breathtaking, but they apparently feel confident that they won’t get ‘caught’ with a hand in the cookie jar.  The better question is, hasn’t enough information already emerged to reflect that their hands have titled the scales already in a ways that have rigged the markets? Doesn’t that potentially impact the values of MHI member stocks?

Those are the questions that shareholders and other plaintiffs’ attorneys and corporate suits are/will be sorting through.  See the related reports, just below.

Howard Schultz Serious About 2020 Independent Run, Outlines Plans, plus Manufactured Housing Equities Updates

March 13th, 2019 No comments

DowCNNBusinessTicker3132019If a few days of pause in headlines about billionaire Howard Schultz of Starbucks fame made you think you missed a latte, he’s back.  Schultz spoke in Miami, FL today, and outlined some of his concepts for a independent in the White House. On a day that broader markets rose, with a more mixed day on manufactured housing connected tracked equities, we’ll take a fresh look at Schultz plans for a 2020 campaign to become the first independent in the 21st century to become president.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

SchultzSeriousAbout2020IndependentRunOutlinesPlansPlusManufacturedHOusingEquiteisUpdatesMHProNews

 

First, as a backgrounder, let’s share a video of Howard Schultz talking about leadership.

The video above is from a prior London Business Forum. “This is the story behind the Starbucks comeback told by its CEO Howard Schultz. Concerned that Starbucks had lost its way, Howard returned as CEO eight years after he stepped down. Determined to re-establish the company’s vision, Howard reveals what he has learnt about becoming and leading a global brand,” says that YouTube page summary.

Then, here’s CBS News on a talk by Shultz today.  Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said he would lead a charge to make a “transformative change” for the country. He told CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe he would appoint “the most diverse administration” in history. Sounds a bit like the Obama 2008 campaign, but we’ll see.

 

 

Finally, from Fox Business, a 36 minute video of his talk today in Miami, FL.

The possibility of a Schultz campaign furrows brows among Democrats, which may make it a dream come true for the GOP.  But for those who reflect back on the Ross Perot independent campaign in the 1992 election cycle, it shouldn’t be taken lightly by either major party.   It could prove to be a healthy thing for the debates over who should lead the nation after the 2020 campaign voting wraps up.

Says fellow billionaire Steve Forbes, “Don’t under estimate a Schultz candidacy.”

Raucous Caucus, Democratic Reality Check by Speaker Pelosi, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, plus MH Market Updates

March 12th, 2019 No comments

CNNmone3.12.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsIf Trump’s only hope for winning a second term turns on his ability to paint us as socialists, we shouldn’t play to type,” said Chicago Mayor and former President Barack Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, in a warning to fellow Democrats in an op-ed to the Atlantic. Once more, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) is trying to bring reason to her raucous caucus.  Some are saying, if President Trump runs – which he says he will do – he’s already won if he is competing against an openly Socialist candidate.  Which way are Democratic winds blowing?

 

On a day when the broader markets rose modestly, and manufactured housing stocks were more mixed, quotes from Speaker Pelosi and Mayor Emanuel this evening makes the debate for the future of America tonight’s featured topic.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

RaucousCaucusDemocraticRealityCheckSpeakerPelosiMayorRahmEmanuelPlusMHMarketUpdate

Yesterday, this feature spotlighted the de facto formal leader of the Democratic Party, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who broke the news to her raucous caucus. Barring overwhelming evidence and enough GOP buy in, there will be no impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, said the California Democrat.

Now, in comments to Rolling Stone, Speaker Pelosi tossed more cold water on the far-left wing of her party.

Said Pelosi to Rolling Stone:

When they say Medicare for All, people have to understand this: Medicare for All is not as good a benefit as the Affordable Care Act. It doesn’t have catastrophic [coverage] you have to go buy it. It doesn’t have dental. It’s not as good as the plans that you can buy under the Affordable Care Act. So I say to them, come in with your ideas, but understand that we’re either gonna have to improve Medicare — for all, including seniors — or else people are not gonna get what they think they’re gonna get. And by the way, how’s it gonna be paid for?  Now, single-payer is a different thing. People use the terms interchangeably. Sometimes it could be the same thing, but it’s not always. Single-payer is just about who pays. It’s not about what the benefits are. That is, administratively, the simplest thing to do, but to convert to it? Thirty trillion dollars. Now, how do you pay for that? So I said, “Look, just put them all on the table, and let’s have the discussion, and let people see what it is. But know what it is that you’re talking about.” All I want is the goal of every American having access to health care. You don’t get there by dismantling the Affordable Care Act.”

That sounds a bit more like Howard Schultz than Senator Bernie Sanders.

This might be viewed as good news for those in the moderate wing of the Democratic Party, where several seats were picked up by candidates who ran as moderates in 2018 battle ground states.

But as the video which Pelosi and some of her leftist leaning colleagues reflects below, she’s trying to walk a tightrope. No doubt, the pragmatic side of Pelosi wants the energy that the leftist ‘democratic socialist’ wing of her party brings, especially with younger voters. So she’s trying to show both solidarity and reality at the same time.

Good luck with that juggling act, Nancy?

Then, there’s former Obama Administration White House Chief of Staff and Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel.  In a Sunday op-ed to the Atlantic the mayor said, “Democrats can’t bank on voters being more dismayed by him [POTUS Trump] than they are enamored of us.”

The last thing we should do is serve him slow pitches over the plate that allow him to define us on his terms,” Emanuel wrote. “Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Democrats have been doing since he went before Congress in early February. It’s almost as if we’ve been duped into reading from his [POTUS Trump’s] ready-made script.”

Earth to Democrats: Republicans are telling you something when they gleefully schedule votes on proposals like the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, and a 70 percent marginal tax rate,” the 2nd term Chicago mayor and Democratic strategist said.

That’s a thinly veiled slam at the far left of his party.

What does this mean to investors? At least there is a debate among Democrats, it isn’t all left-wing socialist plans and talk.  Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA-D), when asked if she is a socialist, said she is for markets.  That may come as a surprise to some, but it is actually a theme of hers for some time.

Closing thought for this evening, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is now set to be released to specific officials within days.  Expect much of it to be made public.  The ramp up of Democratic investigations, say D.C. sources, are clues that the report won’t have the bombshell of “Russia collusion” that Democrats have hoped for from over 2 years of FBI and then the special counsel’s investigations.  No charges brought to date have had anything to do with alleged collusion with Russia. That, it seems, was a massive case of fake news.

No Impeachment Says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA-D), Trump 2020 Budget Rollout, Plus Manufactured Housing Stock Updates

March 11th, 2019 No comments

CNNmone3.11.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsCan the 24/7 news cycle become much more intense?

The usefulness of our evening ‘left and right’ headline news recap for busy manufactured housing industry professionals is perhaps more useful than ever since we began the practice some years ago.  In about a minute or two, most pros can get the top headlines from across the political divide. That said, tonight’s feature will be two different but interrelated topics.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) says she’s of the mind that President Trump isn’t qualified, but she is against impeachment.  That will stir some buzz for a while. Plus, the White House has rolled out the 2020 Trump Administration budget proposal for the federal government. On a day when markets rebounded, as did most manufactured housing tracked stocks, those the Trump Budget and Pelosi items make up our featured reports for this evening.

In an interview with the Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said today “I’m not for impeachment [of President Trump].”

This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

Put differently, it’s a bland admission that there is a lack of such compelling and overwhelming evidence.

Pelosi may also be making a tacit admission that it didn’t work for the GOP against then President Bill Clinton in the late 1990s, and it may backfire for Democrats if they tried it today. Don’t expect any bombshells from Special Counsel Mueller’s looming report that will show the president colluded with Russians in 2016.  If that’s so, keep in mind that MHProNews signaled that 2 years ago.

And he’s [President Trump] just not worth it,” Pelosi said.

The Washington Post asked Pelosi if Trump was “fit to be president.” Pelosi responded withAre we talking ethically? Intellectually? Politically? What are we talking here?…All — All of the above. No. No. I don’t think he is. I mean, ethically unfit. Intellectually unfit. Curiosity-wise unfit,” the Democratic Speaker of the House said. “No, I don’t think he’s fit to be president of the United States.”

While there are bound to be firebrands push back on that ‘no impeachment’ call, including from her own party, it may help with more financial market stability. Investors like more certainty.

Speaking of markets, Fox Business reported this evening that President Donald. J. Trump’s budget calls for reforming the nation’s welfare programs. It starts with strengthening work requirements for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also referred to as food stamps), Medicaid and HUD housing assistance.

While a hardship exemption will exist, most able-bodied individuals between 18 and 65 will generally be required to work at least 20 hours per week in order to receive assistance, get job training or community service, Fox said according to senior administration officials. It’s projected to save some $327 billion over 10 years.

Other changes – 5 percent more for the military, but numerous other cuts equal to about 5 percent, are supposed to save “trillions of dollars” over recent federal spending practices.

Administration officials told Fox that the proposed budget, along with the last two budget proposals, contain more reductions in spending than any president has ever proposed.

That may be true, but even with increased federal tax revenue collections, and with fewer federal workers since the tax cuts act, the deficit continues to grow.

CBS notes that over 8 billion more is being requested for border wall or fencing funding.

In case you didn’t notice, the seemingly non-stop campaign season – now for the 2020 election cycle – is also in full swing.
