In Connected World, Oil and More Impacts Factory-Builders, What Does Latest Unrest Mean? Plus More Headline Topics

February 23rd, 2019 Comments off

ConnectedWorldOilImpactsVenezualanUnrestDailyBusinessNEwsMHProNews

If you’ve been buying fuel lately, you’ve noticed that prices have been rising in recent weeks.  The tragedy of Venezuela is part of that backstory.  Make no mistake. As one of the top proven oil reserves in the world, that Latin American nation’s political and economic upheaval are impacting the U.S. and beyond.

 

Fuel costs impacts manufactured home builders, as well as retailers on the delivery-end.

But fuel and energy costs also impact the industry on the supply side, as virtually all products reach a production center via truck.

Once upon a time, there were factory-builders that had active rail lines that brought products to a factory, and sometimes, were used to ship them out too. The historic photo below reflects that reality.

History also reminds factory builders that a producer can go from zero – start up status – to having built and shipped some 60,000 homes, in only 2 years.  Rephrased – as much as Warren Buffett would hate it – one could rival Clayton Homes rapidly. That would require the proper mix of motivation, money, manpower and know-how.  See the related report below, by clicking the text/image graphic.

 

Rollohome, Creating 60,000 Factory-Built Homes in 2 Years

 

The CNBC video below focuses on the economic ripples that arise from the growing crisis in Venezuela.

One of our themes on MHProNews is “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” © Put differently, that means that ‘other news’ that mainstream media may cover often impacts our industry in ways that the rank and file or others may not consider.

 

Headline News the White House Wants You to Know

The Trump Administration has demonstrated its interest in manufactured housing in a variety of ways.  Dispatching Pam Danner, JD, from her role over the manufactured housing program is one example.

But regulatory and tax issues are just some of the other ways that’s manifest.  Still more examples are found in the related reports, further below.

While MHProNews can’t at this time produce all of the volume of news that comes to us from federal and other sources, we do curate topics that could be more relevant to investors, owners, strategists, advocates, and others that may only obliquely relate to our industry.  The headlines and one paragraph summaries below are an example of that you may find of interest.

While POTUS Trump often blasts ‘fake news,’ in fact Team Trump routinely produce such summaries of reports from mainstream media that underscore the reality that even the president believes that not all mainstream news is ‘fake.’ He’s said on several occasions, all he wants is a fair shake.  These headlines therefor project issues that will help shape the 2020 races, and thus the political and business environment that you are and will be operating in.

As Sam Zell, Equity LifeStyle Properties (ELS) founder observed, they discovered that they had a ‘partner’ that had no investment, but could still influence their business. It pays to know more than just the latest shipment numbers.

-USA Today

Retired educator Dan Ferguson writes that his beloved daughter Mandy, a 28-year-old sixth-grade teacher, was killed last year by a criminal who should never have been in the United States. “In his declaration of a national emergency on our southern border, President Trump recognized the Americans who experienced the consequences of that emergency firsthand: angel moms and dads. I never expected I would be one of them.”

Opinion: Trump Stays Tough on Socialism

-The Detroit News

“President Trump’s speech Monday afternoon in Miami wasn’t just directed at Nicolas Maduro and the socialists of Venezuela — it was also a stark reminder to left-leaning Americans that socialism’s days are ‘numbered,’” Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer writes. “As Democrats rally around radical proposals such as ‘Medicare-for-all,’ free college tuition, enormous minimum wage increases, and even guaranteed basic income, it was President Trump’s responsibility to remind us that socialism’s sweeping promises are always empty.”

Lower Tax Refunds Show How the Republican Tax Cut is Keeping Money in Your Hands All Year

-USA Today

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) explain that tax refunds are lower today because taxes are lower—keeping more money in Americans’ hands all year long. First, Democrats were wrong that tax cuts would hurt our economy. Now, they are “peddling the scary elixir that ‘lower tax refunds mean higher taxes.’ Wrong again . . . This claim about refunds, as the Washington Post’s fact checker observed, is ‘nonsensical and misleading.’”

Trump’s New Theme vs Clinton – Follow the Money, Crowd Shouts Back: ‘Lock her up!’

September 29th, 2016 Comments off

trumpcrowdsizegatewaypundit-posteddailybusinessnewsmhpronewsTry telling Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign – or former GOP nominee John McCain – that that crowd size doesn’t matter.  Of course it does.  It is an indication of enthusiasm.

Over 60% of those polled answer the ‘right track, wrong track’ question by saying that the nation is on the wrong track.

In a change election year, enthusiasm for Trump matters.

And look out manufactured housing pros, because news reports out of Pennsylvania indicate that manufactured home residents are tilting towards Trump, which continues a trend the New York Times reported in the spring.  There are similar reports in other parts of the nation about manufactured home residents tilting pro-Trump too.

The Trump campaign has rolled out a post-debate theme that seems to be working with crowds.

Speaking about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, GOP Donald Trump tells his audience – follow the money – a reference to the Clinton Foundation and related pay-for-play accusations.  The crowd roars back, “Lock her up! Lock her up!”

The other under-discussed political topic?

Venezuela.  Socialism doesn’t work. Take away incentives, and quality, productivity and the quality of work tend to go down. Venezuela – an oil rich nation – is melting down after years of socialistic leadership. What lessons should that hold for the U.S.?

Countdown to Nov 8th – Election Coverage – Political, Economic Headline News

September 19th, 2016 Comments off

electioncountdown-abcnewsgo-piccredit-postedmanufacturedhousingindustrydailybusinessnewsmhpronewsBetween now and Election Day, Nov 8th, MHProNews will continue to bring busy professionals periodic ‘headline news items’ from various third party media sources, featuring at a glance issues in the race from other news sources.  These will focus on issues that may influence voters, and thus the outcome of the race for the White House, as well as control of the U.S. House and Senate.

On manufactured housing industry related issues, editorially, we observe that Hillary Clinton favors more taxes, more regulations, Dodd-Frank, ObamaCare and other policy positions that are deemed harmful to business and consumers alike. So we’ve taken the position editorially that Donald Trump’s policies will prove better for the economy and our industry. See one of several prior reports, linked here.

Note too the recent Paradox of Freedom column, linked here.

We note too that our editorial stance in no way should be construed to represent the views of sponsors, who may well hold different views.

Early voting starts soon.  The first presidential debate will be at 9:00 PM – 10:30 PM (ET) on Monday, September 26. TV Channels – Each debate will be broadcast live on C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all cable news channels including CNN, Fox News and MSNBC among others.

MHProNews plans to post debate video soon after it is available.

Headlines on Monday, Sept 9, 2016 from various media outlets across the political spectrum.
