Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross sounded off today on the Trump administration’s plans to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel and the state of the markets.

One topic that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention is that on July 15, 1959, there were 500,000 members of the United Steel Workers. Today, the entire U.S. steel industry employs about down by some 70 percent from that total.

White House National Trade Council Director Peter Navarro on the potential impact of the U.S. imposing tariffs on aluminum and steel imports.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Trump’s tariffs allow us to invest $100 million and hire hundreds: Century Aluminum CEO, Says CNBC.

·        Trump’s new tariffs won’t wind up hitting consumers’ wallets, but they will bring jobs back, Century Aluminum CEO Michael Bless says.

·        Trump says the U.S. will impose a 25 percent tariff for steel and a 10 percent tariff for aluminum as early as next week.

·        Bless says the decision will allow his company to bring back 150,000 tons of production in its Kentucky plant.

 

From the White House Press Room to the Daily Business News…

President Donald Trump’s new steel and aluminum tariffs won’t wind up hitting consumers’ wallets but they will benefit “devastated” communities by bringing jobs back, Century Aluminum CEO Michael Bless told CNBC on Thursday.

The big picture: America’s resurgent economy 
Inside the Beltway, people often forget that what matters most to ordinary Americans is results. And recent news showing surging small-business and consumer confidence, near record low unemployment claims, and expectations of continued economic momentum is good news for U.S. workers and their families.

A few headlines paint the picture:

  • US Consumer Confidence Rises to Highest Level Since 2000 (The Associated Press)
  • Record Number of U.S. Small-Business Owners Say It’s a Good Time to Expand (Bloomberg)
  • U.S. Jobless Claims near 45-Year Low as Economic Outlook Brightens (Reuters)
  • Fed Thinks the Economy Has Momentum, Thanks Partly to Tax Cuts, Global Growth (Washington Examiner)

After 8 years of a presidential administration not taking economic growth seriously enough, President Trump has committed to an agenda that puts U.S. workers and businesses first.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – 

There could be several reasons why the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) in their HUD Comments letter have noted FHA Title I and Title II lending, as did MHProNews and MHLivingNews.  Certianly, among the possibilities, is the just announced acquisition of Silverton by Berkshire Hathaway owned, VMF.

It is anticipated that this strategic transaction will enable Silverton Mortgage to continue its rapid growth as a national home lender while retaining its name, leadership, employees and corporate identity following the transaction. It is also anticipated that, as a result of this transaction, Silverton Mortgage will expand its footprint and increase its access to capital to develop an expanded line of products and services for its clients. There will be no lapses in service for borrowers currently working with the company,” per Cobb.

While we were not actively looking to be acquired, we are grateful for this opportunity to expand our services, both in terms of geographic footprint and loan product offerings, while keeping our identity and the great people that have built our culture of unparalleled service to our customers and communities,” said Josh Moffitt.  He will remain the president and CEO of Silverton Mortgage. “This is a unique opportunity to keep what makes Silverton special, while also improving the service and lives of our customers and employees.”  The Silverton website lists several types of home loan products, including FHA, VA, USDA, and conventional.

Does or will Fannie or Freddie products figure into the mix?  There is no clarity on that at this time.

Founded in 1998, with just two employees working from an Atlanta bedroom, Silverton Mortgage has grown to more than 170 employees operating across 12 states and Washington, D.C.,” states Cobb.

The business was listed among the Best Places to Work by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in 2016 and 2017.  Also a Top Workplaces by the Atlanta Journal Constitution in 2016.  Moffitt has been recognized among the nation’s top mortgage leaders in Mortgage Professional America’s Hot 100 in 2015 and 2018.  Those are natural fits for the Berkshire philosophy of buying quality. 

Upon completion of the transaction, Silverton Mortgage expects to build upon its customer service focus, which averages a more than 98-percent satisfaction rating from clients and real estate agents. Silverton Mortgage will add the ability retain loans for servicing throughout the life of a loan, from application until the buyer pays off the mortgage or sells the home,” stated the report.

HUD Reg Review Could Yield Housing, Econ Boom; Plus MH Market UPdate$

February 26th, 2018 Comments off

CNNmoney2.26.2017ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsYou don’t have to spend a lot of time on regulatory comments, if you still want to get them in tonight by 11:59 PM.  The TMHA’s comments are brief, and one of several examples, linked further below.

Recent research by the Daily Business News reveals that the HUD Comments could be a pathway to opening up 1 to 2 trillion dollars a year in new economic activity; that’s on top of the economic growth that the Trump Administration’s regulatory reforms and tax cuts have sparked.  Those will be tonight’s feature.

 

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline reports are found further below, just beyond the Manufactured Housing Composite Value for today.

 

The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.

Part of this unique feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – that saves 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 –

What the Fed’s minutes reveal is that there are a variety of camps among members of the Federal Reserve (Fed). Some see few signs of wage growth, but others believes wages will pick up with improved job growth, says FOX Business’ Adam Shapiro reports.

Wall Street suffered wild swings Wednesday, ending the day lower, even as the Federal Reserve dampened expectations of an accelerated timetable for interest rate hikes.

The drop in stocks late in Wednesday’s session coincided with a spike in the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield, which hit a new multi-year high of 2.956%. “Yields rise as bond prices fall,” said Fox Business.

In economic data, “U.S. home sales declined 3.2% in January, marking the largest annualized decline in three years. The flash U.S. manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index for February climbed to 55.9 from 55.5, hitting a 40-month high. A reading above 50 indicates economic expansion.”

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The indictments of Russian nationals ought to bring much of this investigation, as far as President Trump and his team are concerned, to a conclusion.  Odds are, it won’t.

But what we know now is that ‘no American’s were wittingly involved,’ and that includes the Trump campign team.

But other revelations are coming ouf of today’s market-moving news.

It would be too easy to say that Moscow alone caused anti-Trump rallies post-election, as George Soros backed groups have been directly tied to those activities as well.

 

Another note of interest is that the CEO of Goldman Sachs, a pro-Clinton supporter, now says that the economy is doing better under POTUS Trump’s vision that it would have under Hillary’s.  As Fox Business reported, “CEO Lloyd Blankfein, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter, stated that the economy is better off under President Donald Trump.
