Patrick bucks MH stock down trend, as oil’s spill slides broader markets lower

December 12th, 2014 Comments off

2014-12-12_1614money-cnn=credit-posted-daily-business-news-mhpronews-com-Patrick was the sole tracked stock today that bucked the down trend among manufactured housing. The broader markets also suffered. Wasn’t it just yesterday that MarketWatch  proclaimed that stocks may have finally won their 100 year battle with big oil? Their new story line for today is that the markets will have a terrible week because of oil’s slide; and the bull market may be over.

And Quentin Fortrell says that “The Great Recession is officially over, but Americans are still 40% poorer today than they were in 2007, the year before the global financial crisis.”

That’s bad for the U.S.. But one more area that MH could capitalize by better serving the public, once more individual companies – or the industry at large – learn to connect-with and serve the growing need for quality affordable living starved Americans.

As the curtain fell for the week on Wall Street, here are Friday’s closing numbers.

SUI sole bright spot; MH Composite down, major exchanges continue slide

December 10th, 2014 Comments off

2014-12-10_1616money-cnn=credit-posted-daily-business-news-manufactured-housing-related-markets-report-mhpronews-The MHCV closed down, and only Sun Communities rose while other tracked stocks slid or stayed even. The Dow and other exchanges continued their modest retreat. The U.S. markets normally rise in December, but so far this year, that’s not so, says CNN Money.  Oil is one factor, and it means a lot to the MH industry, as the article linked here reveals.

Motley Fool’s  warnings about Caesar’s Entertainment in October are picking up steam. Penchenga  and Bloomberg  have mentioned signs of motion of Caesar’s toward bankruptcy, which would leave open to question what impact, if any, that might have on MH events such as the MHI Congress and Expo often held at a Caesar’s property.

December 9th, 2014 Comments off

2014-12-09_1616money-cnn=credit-posted-daily-business-news-market-report-mhpronews-com-Manufactured housing stocks overall did well today. Oil’s slip – which can impact MH – slid up. MarketWatch reads like a press agent for the Labor Department today, touting how rapidly jobs are being snapped up. As if to respond, the Drudge Report  says the labor force participation rates are still near modern historic lows, and millions have gone onto disability (SSI) since 2009.

December 8th, 2014 Comments off

2014-12-08_1629money-cnn=graphic-credit=posted-daily-business-news-manufactured-housing-markets-report-mhpronews-com-_001Sun Communities (SUI) bucked a down trend among MH tracked stocks today. CNN Money reports that some in Big Oil are feeling the heat caused by the downward pressure by OPEC on crude prices. Some are saying prices at the pump could be under $2 a gallon in many part of the nation by spring. A station in Oklahoma City OK has already tested prices at $1.999. With a number of states seeing added MH, workforce and modular home sales due to shale, this is a trend to watch.
