As Washington Boils, and Trade Roils, POTUS Heads to MN for Rally – Plus MH Market Updates

June 20th, 2018 Comments off

CNNmoney6.20.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe carefully orchestrated backlash to the enforcement of federal immigration law has taken center stage in media for the last 2 days. Forgotten is who passed the law, or that Presidents Bush and Obama to various degrees had a similar policy of enforcing the law.  Trade is still on investors minds, as markets closed mixed.  Having signed an executive order on the issue of separating children from those who crossed the border illegally, President of the United States (POTUS) Donald Trump heads to the battleground state of Minnesota to campaign ahead of the midterms.  That will be our focus tonight.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

POTUS Trump’s approval numbers are near his record high since taking office, and are as good or better than Presidents Reagan, Clinton, Bush, or Obama at about this same point in their presidency.

Talk of a blue wave is vaporizing, but not gone.  Some GOP hopefuls are cautiously hoping for a red wave in November, based upon the best economy in years.

But Democrats have found an issue with the border and separating children from parents.  The narrative and echo chamber are having some impact with voters, according to a CNN poll.

Against the backdrop of the so-called trade war with China and others, plus the immigration issue, the president will be in Minnesota for a rally to support his party in a state he narrowly lost in 2016, and in a district that he won.

The bullets are from CNBC.

•          President Trump holds a rally in Minnesota on Wednesday as he faces widespread backlash over his administration’s policy of separating migrant children from parents. The president signed an order Wednesday afternoon aiming to end the practice.

USTopDestinationForImmigrantsToCometo2009GallupManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

POTUS Trump is a pragmatic leader on a challenging issue.

•          Minnesota is a key midterm election state, and Trump has increasingly tied the critical elections to his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.

•          Minnesota will elect two senators this year and has four highly competitive House races.

•          In November, Minnesota will elect a governor and two senators, due to the resignation of Democratic Sen. Al Franken over sexual misconduct accusations. Nonpartisan analysts consider four House seats — two each held by Democrats and Republicans — as toss-ups.

•          Minnesota as a whole is hardly Trump country, as Democrats have carried it for decades in presidential elections. However, Democrat Hillary Clinton won the state by fewer than 2 percentage points in 2016. That made the state more appealing to Republicans for both 2018 and Trump’s re-election bid in 2020.

•          Trump will speak at 6:30 p.m. local time in the 8th District, a broad area in northeastern Minnesota represented by Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan. The seat is one of the GOP’s top House targets. Trump won the district by about 15 percentage points in 2016 and Nolan will not run for re-election.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

We’ll let the CBNC provided quotes below speak for themselves.  But we’ll sum up why some cool headed experts think that the U.S. does hold the cards.  And their markets slid more than the U.S. markets did.  That’s a clue, to the following.

Because they buy less American products than we do from China, they can’t continue to match our tariffs. There are other moves they could make, but at the end of the day, the president is correct.  We hold the cards. Other experts we’ve spotlighted have said the same.

Per CNBC:

•    Several experienced market veterans predict the U.S. and China will eventually reach a satisfactory trade deal after some short-term saber rattling.

•    Warren Buffett, Lloyd Blankfein and Paul Tudor Jones all agree the blustery trade rhetoric between the nations is just a part of the negotiations.

•    Trade tensions with China rose to new highs Monday when President Donald Trump instructed the U.S. trade representative to identify $200 billion worth of Chinese goods for additional tariffs at a rate of 10 percent.

The Trump Administration did what it said, and imposed tariffs on Chinese goods on Friday, imposing $50 billion in duties on their goods. China retaliated with its own tariffs on $50 billion of U.S. goods.

On Tuesday, investors will get a look at the latest housing starts. And oil is on traders minds, and of course is a factor in the cost of shipping new or existing manufactured homes.

The video features Charles Payne leading a discussion with conservative author Kristin Tate, Wall Street Journal editorial page writer Jillian Melchior, and American Majority CEO Ned Ryun on whether President Trump’s tariffs against China will impact the U.S. economy.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Award winning MHIndustry veteran Marty Lavin, JD, weighed in a few weeks ago on the topic of trade wars.

Lavin raised several issues, such as these:

When a trading partner has rules heavily skewed in their direction, as in the case of China, it is very difficult to achieve free trade.

  • Does each party have similar access to the other’s markets?
  • Are tariffs similar?
  • Are privately owned companies in the U.S. competing against government backed Chinese companies who can survive long after a privately-owned U.S. company would be long gone, and thus undercutting its pricing?
  • And most importantly, does the other country operate in a relatively free market?”

Free Trade or Economic War?

The “US has overwhelming leverage,” said Gordon Chang on Twitter today.

While Chang’s concerns about taking on Canada and other U.S. allies is debatable, his points on China are worth considering.

But specifically regarding the CNBC report, are the following bullets, graphics and video.

Per CNBC:

  • Trump’s forecast of 4% GDP growth close to coming true as Americans spend tax-bill proceeds
  • Surging consumer spending is driving GDP well above prior estimates, and it is now tracking near 4 percent for the second quarter.
  • That’s almost double the pace of the first quarter.
  • Economists say the consumer is seeing the impact of the tax cuts and is spending, as a result of more disposable income.

June 13th, 2018 Comments off

The judge urged no appeal, but that doesn’t keep the Feds from taking another bite at the apple.  The ruling could have widespread consequences, say experts, and that will be our focus tonight.

CFRA Research senior analyst Tuna Amobi and attorney Leeza Garber on the impact of the AT&T-Time Warner deal on the media industry.

CNBC’s three top bullets reports about the Comcast offer for Fox as follows.

  • Comcast, the parent of CNBC, offered Fox shareholders $35 a share in cash and 100 percent of the shares of the company left behind after the deal.
  • The deal is a 19 percent premium to the value of Disney’s offer as of noon on Wednesday.
  • The announcement comes one day after a federal judge cleared the way for AT&T’s megadeal for Time Warner, a decision that is expected to unleash a wave of big mergers.

 

21st Century Fox is the legal successor to News Corporation dealing primarily in the film and television industries. … The company’s assets include the FoxEntertainment Group—owners of the 20th Century Fox film studio (the company’s partial namesake), Fox television network and Fox News channel, among other assets,” said Wikipedia.

The decision will very much send a signal as to what to expect from the DOJ in the future,” Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Fox Business Monday morning.

The AT&T- Time Warner merger ruling could set the precedent for other media “M&A” deals in the works, Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Monday.

Court-watchers will be looking for clues in the ruling as to what this might mean for others, including, perhaps manufactured housing.

The president has indicated hinted at times an interest in taking on Amazon.

If so, that may be a parallel to action in the currently lower-profile manufactured housing industry.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Manufactured homes are transported – so it is obvious that fuel prices matter to the industry.

Energy drilling is often a cause for demand of modular and manufactured housing, so that too is a reason to consider the oil outlook.

This evening’s summary is from CNBC.

Some bullets, quotes and a video.

  • Oil prices are heading for a downturn later this year and will sink even lower in 2019 as the fundamentals of supply and demand weaken, J.P. Morgan forecasts.
  • Crude futures could have one last “hurrah” if OPEC eases its production caps, but the rally would likely be short-lived, the bank says.
  • Growth in oil consumption looks weaker than anticipated due to softer-than-expected economic growth in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
  • Oil prices are heading for a downturn later this year and will sink even lower in 2019 as the fundamentals of supply and demand weaken, J.P. Morgan forecast in a research note on Friday.
  • While geopolitical tensions and lingering risks of large supply disruptions remain an upside risk throughout 2H18, we think that prices will be corrected downwards towards end of the year and remain capped in 2019,” J.P. Morgan analyst Abhishek Deshpande wrote in the note.
  • Despite oil prices recently rising to 3½-year highs, the investment bank left its forecast for international benchmark Brent crude unchanged at $69.30 a barrel. On Friday, Brent was trading at just under $77 a barrel, off its recent high of $80.50.
  • J.P. Morgan now sees U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude averaging $62.20 a barrel, down $3 from its last estimate. WTI was trading at nearly $66 a barrel Friday, after nearly touching $73 a barrel two weeks ago.
  • The bank knocked down its 2019 Brent forecast by $1, to $63 a barrel. It lowered its outlook for WTI slightly to $58.25 a barrel.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

CNBC provided the following bullets on concerns over a new plan advanced by Warren Buffett, Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, the parent company for the manufactured housing industry’s largest conglomerate.  Their video interview with Buffett and Dimon are also shown, for balance.

  • A proposal by Jamie Dimon and Warren Buffett to end quarterly earnings guidance drew considerable acclaim but also scattered criticism, including a sharp rebuke from an analyst who’s been in the business for more than half a century.
  • The idea is “misguided” in that it would increase market volatility by reducing information and actually increasing speculation, said Dick Bove, a strategist at Hilton Capital Management, who has been a widely followed and sometimes contrarian voice in the financial markets since 1965.
  • We’re driving the market on rumor and innuendo, we’re driving the market to high-velocity trading, we’re driving it in all these directions that say knowledge has no value,” Bove said in an interview. “These two guys are at the top of the list saying knowledge has no value, therefore we don’t want to give it to you.
  • Dimon, who runs the largest bank in the U.S. as J.P. Morgan Chase CEO, and Buffett, the legendary head of industrial conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, rocked Wall Street with their suggestion that corporate executives should stop providing future profit estimates during quarterly earnings presentations.
  • In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Thursday, and a joint CNBC interview, the duo bemoaned the short-term thinking plaguing market activity.
  • In our experience, quarterly earnings guidance often leads to an unhealthy focus on short-term profits at the expense of long-term strategy, growth and sustainability,” they wrote.
  • J.P. Morgan representatives did not respond to a request for further comment on Bove’s remarks. A Berkshire spokesman pointed to a portion of the op-ed noting that “transparency about financial and operating results is an essential aspect of U.S. markets” and advocates for quarterly reporting to continue, minus the forward-looking aspect.
