America’s $22 Trillion Debt, Markets Soar, Plus Manufactured Housing Stock Updates

February 15th, 2019 No comments

CNNmone2.15.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere are tens of millions of Americans too young to recall that at the end of the Clinton Administration, that the U.S. had a budget surplus. That was a bipartisan effort, with the Republican Party (GOP), led by then House Speaker Newt Gingrich achieving a grand bargain of entitlement and other reforms with Democrat Bill Clinton.  What’s happened since?  Does it matter? What’s next?  The $22 trillion dollar debt will be this evening’s topic.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Americas$22TrillionDebtMarketsSoarPlusManufacturedHousingStockUPdates

Following the victory of George H. W. Bush (GOP) and his “Compassionate Conservatism” and overseas adventures, there has been a steady rise in the federal debt.  Candidate Senator Barack H. Obama (IL-D) blasted POTUS Bush’s debt, and once elected, proceeded to outspend his Oval Office predecessor.

The federal government doesn’t have a revenue problem.  Despite political jargon, the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act did what happened under Democratic President John F. Kennedy, or Republican President Ronald Reagan.  Taxes were cut, and revenues grew.

What’s going wrong is spending is not being controlled. Under our constitution, the president doesn’t have the power to control spending, that’s the Congress’ job.  “No taxation without representation” – was a battle cry of the colonists in their revolt against England’s King.  So the House and Senate are  elected to spend, at least in theory, within constitutional limits.

 

 

The federal debt is an issue.  Debt service is growing, and as interest rates rise, it will take a bigger bite out of the federal government’s spending.

POTUS Trump has told his cabinet to find savings in their respective departments.  We’ll see where that goes, but at least it is being discussed.

 

CitizensAgainstGovernmentWasteReleasedDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsSeptOct2018

It’s political theater to say that the issue is the fault of the President and the GOP, or only of Democrats.  Both need to do at some level what occurred in the Clinton administration, a grand bargain that restores some common sense to federal spending.

That doesn’t seem likely during the next 2 years.  Why? To learn more, see the Green New Deal reports, linked below.

Managing Mueller Russia Probe Outcome? NBC, Other Mainstream Media Reports Soften, Investor Impacts? Plus, MH Market Updates

February 14th, 2019 No comments

CNNmone2.14.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsManufactured housing tracked stocks closed mixed, as did the broader markets today.  Retail and other headline news found further below drove some declines. Among the more interesting topics in recent days has been the managing of expectations by mainstream news sources – such as NBC News – that for much of the past 2 years has touted so-called “Russian Collusion” with the Trump campaign.  Apparently, that’s not likely – as MHProNews advised readers 2 years ago, based upon the legal insights of Democratic backer and Harvard Law Professor Emeritus, Alan Dershowitz. What does that mean for investors? That and the quiet tamping down of expectations about Mueller is our featured topic for this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

ManagingMuellerRussiaProbeExpectationNBCOtherMainstreamMediaReportsSoftenInvestorImpactsPlusMHMarketUpdates600

CNN and others are saying that investigations of the Trump campaign and the president himself will go on, but NBC is now saying that “Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed,” who have “been waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary.”

NBC and others drone on with the technical reasons why the public may or may not hear all of the dirt, or the lack thereof.  But that begs the question.  Didn’t they know that those same restrictions existed on the special counsel’s report 2 years ago?  Why were so many in media – many of whom were giddy with the prospects of removing a duly elected president via the Mueller Mechanism – negligent in saying these same things 2 years ago?

Here’s an example of the walk-back.

Expectations that we will see a comprehensive report from the special counsel are high. But the written regulations that govern the special counsel’s reporting requirements should arguably dampen those expectations,” said Chuck Rosenberg, a former federal prosecutor and NBC News analyst.

Translation?  There is no evidence that the president of his campaign actually colluded with the Russians.  Whatever the Russians attempted, it didn’t actively involve the Trump campaign, per several sources.

Recall that Project Veritas said in 2017 that a CNN producer said on hidden camera that the Russia collusion story was a big “nothing burger.”  MHProNews brought you that report, and others that logically laid out the reasons why the odds were miniscule that anything campaign connected was going to arise.

Adam Schiff and other Democratic leaders have made it clear that they will do their own investigations, regardless of whatever the Mueller probe decides. So, don’t expect this to end any time soon.  It may take a GOP recapture of the House to stop politically motivated investigations.

 

The Impact?

MHProNews reported earlier this week that trust in media has sunk to new lows.  President Trump’s approval was rising to a new high.

Once the news becomes official that this was – as the President Donald J. Trump has often said – “a witch hunt” – a possible outcome is that investors will feel more confidence in the Trump Administration.  That could be good for stocks, since investors like maximum certainty.

MHVille Exclusive – Democrats Senators Sign Anti-Competitive Practices Letter to DoJ, Plus MH Market Updates

February 13th, 2019 No comments

CNNmone2.13.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsSome power-readers of the Daily Business News on MHProNews have effectively said, ‘you need to be blunt in telling your readers how often you raise issues that no one else in manufactured housing trade media raises.’  Others have expressed this notion, ‘your wheat and chaff’ and sourcing across the aisle are common-sense principles your competitors lack.’  Yes, we have our political favorites whose policies make sense for America and our industry. MHProNews also has those whose policies – policies, not personalities – routinely are problematic for MHVille.

That said, the Democratic U.S. Senators who signed letters obtained by MHProNews will be of interest for industry readers who look beyond the headlines at details that could prove useful for industry independents and investors. Those two Democratic letters are our featured report this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

 

DemocraticSenatorsWarrenHarrisBookerKlobucharGillibrandSPrintTmobileAntiCompetitiveDOJFTCLetter

Senator Richard Blumenthal’s (CT-D) office provided the Daily Business News on MHProNews with two letters that on the surface may not seem to matter to our industry.

But a closer look will tell industry leaders that these policy stances – if implemented – could be a boon to manufactured housing independents, possible newcomers, and almost all save the monopolists.

The topic is the proposed merger between Sprint and T-Mobile.  This matters to MHVille because of the principles involved, as a close reading of what follows will reveal.  Keep in mind the report on MHLivingNews that cited Senator Elizabeth Warren’s legal rationale for why antitrust action could be initiated without new legislation. That report, is linked via the text/image box below. That report, could be significant for manufactured housing – if and when regulators bring action in MHVille.

 

Who Will Act? Will Senator Elizabeth Warren, and/or the Trump Administration Act to Restore Open Markets, Thereby Supporting Affordable Manufactured Homes?

 

 

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Senators express staunch opposition to merger that would “lead to job losses and harm workers around the country” and bring “higher monthly bills for consumers.

Senators urge the Department of Justice & the Federal Communications Commission to reject the merger, warning that approval would be a sharp blow to competition” and undermine innovation.”

[WASHINGTON, DC] – Expressing their staunch opposition to the proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) led eight colleagues today in writing to the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Antitrust Division and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), urging DOJ and FCC to reject the proposal. The merger islikely to raise prices for consumers, harm workers, stifle competition, exacerbate the digital divide, and undermine innovation,” wrote the senators in letters to Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. In the letter to Delrahim, the senators urged DOJ to seek an injunction to block the merger. The two letters were co-signed by U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Tom Udall (D-NM), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Edward J. Markey (D-MA).

For more than 30 years, our enforcers have understood that fostering robust competition in telecommunications markets is the best way to provide every American with access to high-quality, cutting-edge communications at a reasonable price.  This merger will turn the clock back, returning Americans to the dark days of heavily consolidated markets and less competition, with all of the resulting harms,” wrote the senators in both letters. “Our enforcement officials are the last line of defense preventing reconsolidation of our telecommunications markets at the expense of American consumers. We urge you to act to prevent this dangerous merger from proceeding.”

Consumer advocates, economists and small wireless carriers have warned that a T-Mobile-Sprint merger would increase market consolidation. The merger would result in just three competitors—down from four—covering the wireless market. This would be “a sharp blow to competition in the telecommunications industry,”wrote the senators, warning that as a result of the merger, three remaining members of this exclusive club will have every incentive to shut the door on new members, happily divide the market, and collect ever-rising monthly rents from wireless subscribers with few real alternatives.”

We are deeply concerned that the merger of Sprint and T-Mobile in particular will eliminate competition that has been shown to benefit consumers and stifle the emergence of new carriers,”the senators added.

For nearly a decade, DOJ and the FCC have acted vigorously to protect competition in the mobile market through blocking and discouraging four-to-three mergers. In 2011, DOJ acted decisively to reject AT&T’s proposed merger with T-Mobile and, according to news reports, T-Mobile and Sprint abandoned previous merger plans after conversations with federal regulators.“History has proven that those were the right decisions,”wrote the senators in both letters.

Consumers have “benefited from increased innovation and price competition” brought by a four-carrier market, as exemplified by the fierce competition of T-Mobile and Sprint. The T-Mobile-Sprint merger would undo these benefits and likely lead to higher monthly bills for consumers” and “lead to job losses and harm workers around the country,” wrote the senators in their letter to the FCC. According to one expert study, consumers would see their monthly bills increase at least 9% for post-paid plans and 10% for pre-paid plans. The proposed merger would also lead to reduced wages and kill jobs – as many as 30,000 jobs according to the Communications Workers of America.

If this merger is approved, the rising cost of wireless services will be borne most heavily by low-income consumers and vulnerable seniors who can least afford it. At least one study has concluded that this merger will dramatically increase consolidation in the prepaid market,” wrote the senators. Because low-income consumers disproportionately rely on the prepaid wireless market, these communities will suffer the most, despite being the very communities that our antitrust laws should most vigorously protect.”

In their letter, the senators also called into question claims that the merger is needed to build out 5G networks. “T-Mobile’s and Sprint’s sudden claims that neither can create a competitive 5G network separately flies in the face of announcements, disclosures, and marketing to consumers and investors over the past two years,” wrote the senators.  “Not only do each of these companies have their own path forward to achieving 5G coverage, but the financial details of this deal and the technical challenges of building a 5G network suggest that the New T-Mobile is unlikely to meaningfully speed up the deployment of nationwide 5G.”

The full text of today’s letters are available here: Letter to FCC and Letter to DOJ.

— End of statement from Senator Blumenthal’s office. —

 

Video on Same Topic Democratic Hopefuls Push Back on Deal

Eight Democratic senators are opposing a deal to merge T-Mobile and Sprint, states Watchit. The group of senators called on the FCC and Justice Department to block the merger because it will likely raise prices for consumers. But the group of senatorial colleagues have another thing in common, many are presidential candidates. The group, including Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Cory Booker, signed letters for the FCC and the Justice Department. The letters come just before the first of two oversight hearings on Capitol Hill regarding the merger.

It should be noted that the Trump Administration, including the president himself and his 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, have raised their own antitrust issues.  Some examples of those are linked in related reports, below.

Time will tell what, if anything, occurs in the way of antitrust action on firms such as Berkshire Hathaway and their subsidiaries in manufactured housing.  What is beyond question to careful watchers is that compared to prior 8 – some would say 16 years – before the Trump Administration, there is more antitrust talk in the air.

LegacyHousingAnnouncesSeparationofCEOExecChairmanRolesDailyBusiessNewsMHprOnews

BEDFORD, Texas, Feb. 11, 2019 Legacy Housing Corporation (NASDAQ:LEGH) today announced that, consistent with corporate governance best practices, the Company will separate the roles of Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman of the Board. Accordingly, Curtis D. Hodgson is transitioning from his role as Co-Chief Executive Officer of Legacy Housing to become its Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, as approved by the company’s Board of Directors. This transition was effective immediately. Mr. Hodgson will remain actively involved with Legacy in this role, including with respect to overall corporate strategy and manufactured home park development and financing.

Kenneth E. Shipley, who previously managed the company with Mr. Hodgson as Co-Chief Executive Officers, will become the sole Chief Executive Officer of Legacy Housing.  Mr. Shipley has also been appointed by the Board of Directors to serve as Legacy Housing’s President.

Mr. Hodgson and Mr. Shipley co-founded Legacy Housing in 2005.

Mr. Shipley stated: “I look forward to continuing to work with Curt in his new role as Executive Chairman of the Board. Titles may have changed, but Curt will continue to be a critical part of our company and we will continue to rely on his strategic guidance and vision with him leading the company’s Board of Directors. Curt and I founded and built this company together, and Curt will be just as big a part of our company’s future as he is our past.  But this new role will enable him to focus on overall corporate strategy in addition to key, critical projects that will require his expertise and attention. I am excited about the future of Legacy and, in my role as CEO and President, I will continue to work as hard as I can, along with the rest of our management, to grow Legacy and find ways to provide value to our shareholders.”

Shares of Sun Communities Inc (NYSE:SUI) have been given a consensus recommendation of “Hold” by the eight research firms that are currently covering the stock, MarketBeat and the Fairfield Current reports.

A stock research analyst reportedly rated Sun Communities as a sell. Two have issued a hold rating. Four have given a buy rating to the company. That seems to argue against the consensus that Fairfield stated, leaning more toward “buy.”

The number of reports on MHProNews about Cavco Industries (CVCO) since the first shoe dropped last November arguably makes this platform one of the top sources for ‘intelligence’ on occurrences there.

Insider and legal watcher comments have blossomed since their stunning announcement, that sparked a wave of shareholder plaintiffs attorneys to “investigate.”

Cavco Industries (CVCO) Officials Issue Several Warnings

Cavco has issued MHProNews an exclusive statement about their latest report.  The Daily Business News on MHProNews is awaiting a reply on a follow up question about their statement.  Those will be part of a broader report on Cavco, planned for early next week, perhaps as soon as Monday.

CNNmone2.7.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsWhen the words “China,” “trade,” “tariffs,” and the “U.S.” enters mainstream news – depending on how optimistic or pessimistic it sounds – traders and thus the markets have been responding.  For much of 2018 and now in 2019 those words move the markets – either up or down. It’s a game of trade chicken.  Their markets have been impacted, so have U.S. markets.  On a day when manufactured home connected equities have closed mixed, a look at today’s news on China-U.S. trade – plus a step back, will provide useful perspective – that will span the left-right divide.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

 

ChinaTradeTariffsAndChickenPlusManufacturedHomeEquitiesUPdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged on Thursday after Kudlow’s comments,” reported Fox Business.

 

 

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters outside the White House on Thursday that President Trump expects to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. But the location, time, and place are not set. Investors see the looming deadline for trade talks to resolve the issue of pending new tariffs being missed.

The world’s two largest economies have been engaged in a tit-for-tat trade battle for nearly a year. The countries have slapped billions of dollars’ worth of tariffs on one another’s goods, though both sides agreed to a 90-day trade truce during the Group of 20 summit in late December,” said Fox Business.

CNBC presented their version of the event in the report shown below.

 

 

What’s useful is to step back and consider points made just yesterday by Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, ‘We’ve made progress with China on key points,’ per CNBC.

 

 

Gordon Chang is an expert on China, and a critic.  He discusses the ongoing China trade talks in the video below.

 

 

There are reports that manufactured housing producers are ordering products from China that are components for their homes.  Of course, there are also Chinese prefabs that are being shipped to the U.S. for specific projects, usually multifamily, but not always.

So on a day when we looked at Asian unicorn Revolution Prefabricated, see the report below, it is interesting that ‘China, China, China’ was on the mind of traders – and pushed the broader markets lower.

Don’t be surprised when they bounce back up, because the fundamentals are still sound.

MHProNews did its own flash report earlier today, which is found under the related report heading, further below.

Perhaps, just perhaps, President Trump’s SOTU address made a difference?  There is talk today that there may be a deal coming together on the border barrier/wall issue.  We’ll monitor that talk.

Here’s left-of-center CNBC’s hot-takes from the SOTU.

It should be noted that MHProNews has been raising the warning flag about rising – and demonstrably misguided, based upon facts and history – interest in socialism for years.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

FoxBusinessKennedyDonaldJTrump2ndSOTUSDataPointsDailyBusinessNEwsMHproenws

 

FOX Business and Kennedy takes an in-depth look Former special assistant to President Trump Marc Lotter says the State of the Union (SOTU) speech will highlight the administration’s successful policies.

 

Some facts and data-points ahead of tonight’s anticipated State of the Union (SOTU) address by President Trump, per Fox Business.

Stock market: 

  • On Monday’s close today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 3.2 percent since his last State of the Union (SOTU) address on Jan. 30.
  • The Dow closed at 26,076.89 then, compared to 25,239.37 on Monday.
  • Trump took a moment last week to applaud the Dow, which just had the strongest performance in more than 30 years. The broader S&P 500 mounted a record run during Trump’s first year in office, but fell about 3.5 percent during his second year.
  • Meanwhile, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite fell about 0.7 percent.

Unemployment: 

  • Fewer are actively seeking employment compared to the year-ago period. In January of 2018, the unemployment rate was at 4.1 percent — at the time, it was the lowest rate in more than 17 years.
  • Over the year, unemployment ticked down slightly to 3.7 percent, the lowest rate in nearly five decades. It remained steady for several months, before rising slightly. As of January, unemployment was at 4 percent.

Jobs: 

  • In January, the Department of Labor revealed that the U.S. economy added 2.63 million jobs in 2018, the highest number since 2015.
  • In 2017, during Trump’s first year in the Oval Office, the economy added about 2.18 million jobs.

 

National debt:

  • The U.S. deficit — which is already at a six-year high and a nearly 17 percent increase from the year-ago period — could climb as high as $1 trillion by the end of 2019, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
  • In October, the U.S. Treasury Department released the nation’s monthly bank statement, revealing a deficit of $779 million. The national debt has skyrocketed to more than $21.6 trillion.

Oddly, among the missed data points by Fox Business written report was their failure to mention that federal receipts are up after the tax cuts, a pattern that MHProNews has noted occurred during the Kennedy and Reagan tax cuts before it.  Put differently, the federal budget imbalance is a spending problem, not a revenue problem.

IndividualFederalIncomeTaxesSetRecordThroughAugust2018CNSNewsDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

The Trump Tax Cuts has spurred more tax revenue overall. These are facts. The lower rates spur more investment.

Fox Business interviewed Haverford Trust Director and Co-CIO Henry ‘Hank’ Smith on state of the U.S. economy and markets and the outlook for Federal Reserve policy.

 

 

Why listen to Smith?

HenryBSmithHarverfordTrustDirectorCo-ChiefCIODailyBuisnessNewsMHProNews

 

Here’s some relevant data, above and below, from their firm’s website.

 

HaverfordTrustCompanyInvestingOverviewDailyBuisnessNewsMHProNews

 

What Smith says broadly fits what MHProNews has reported from a range of sources for months.  The economy is basically sound, should continue to grow, despite some talking heads in media who for some time have tried to rain on apparent sunshine.

That noted, manufactured housing continues to struggle, as MHARR’s report linked here notes.  But pay close attention to what their CEO said.  We’ll look at that in more depth tomorrow morning.

The industry’s investors can’t possibly fully grasp manufactured housing with clarity until it understands Warren Buffett and his strategic, economic Moat concept.  For more on that, see the related reports, below.

Manufactured housing should be roaring, not snoring. Various investigations could shed more light on this topic in the weeks ahead.
