Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – 

There were more manufactured housing connected sliders today than yesterday, from the closing ticker, shown below.  It’s proof that movers of the broader markets, often impact manufactured housing too.

Talks between North and South Korea likely in June,” per CNBC and Reuters.

  • Talks between North and South Korea will likely resume after June 25 following completion of joint U.S.-South Korea military drills, a South Korean government spokesperson said.
  • North Korea last week canceled at the last minute a meeting with senior South Korean officials in protest over joint exercises between Seoul and Washington.

ZTE concerns from Fox Business.

 

The larger picture about Korea and the U.S., from a Canadian perspective – CBC News.

There’s never been a deal with North Korea that has ever come together.  Technically, the Korean War never ended, it was an armistice, a kind of cease fire.  Even former President Jimmy Carter (D) said that if President Trump pulls this off, it will be historic and worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.

The president wrote the book on walk away power from a deal.  He’s bobbing and weaving with his statement. Stay tuned.

Seattle Times -Federal Investigations-Berkshire Hathaway’s Clayton Homes, GuruFocus Spotlights Buffett’s Clayton’s “Unethical,” Monopolistic Moat

May 21st, 2018 Comments off

MoatCastleBuffettBerkshireClaytonHomes21stMortgageVanderbiltMortgageManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews550x305

Just hours or days before an expected Congressional vote in the House on their version of S. 2155, the Seattle Times is reporting on federal investigations into the business practices of Clayton Homes, Vanderbilt Mortgage, and their affiliated Berkshire Hathaway lending units.

 

Gwen Schablik, a former Clayton employee who was featured in the 2015 article, said officials from HUD and the Department of Justice interviewed her about the issues last year,” per the Seattle Times’ Mike Baker.  “Schablik has said that she and other staffers raised concerns with superiors about Spanish-speaking borrowers who had signed loan documents they couldn’t understand. She said managers told her there was no need to translate the documents.”

Baker’s narrative said Clayton issued a statement to them, emphasizing a claimed culture of compliance, “and does not tolerate discrimination of any kind in its interactions with customers.” But when the Daily Business News asked Clayton to denounce racism last year, they did not accept the opportunity to do so.

We value working with federal and state agencies to improve processes and ensure all regulatory requirements are met and our customers are protected and treated fairly,” Clayton stated in writing, per the Seattle Times.

WBIR has a wrinkle in the report, shown below.

 

What It Means

The Seattle Times latest report confirmed several Daily Business News reports in 2017.

In that sense, Baker’s narrative is akin to the recent Washington Post report, which underscored facts reported by MHProNews, and/or by the Manufactured Housing for Regulatory Reform (MHARR).

Greener, Stylish Manufactured Homes – Hidden Facts in the Washington Post Manufactured Housing Narrative

The Post confirmed reports by MHProNews on issues related to

  • Pamela Danner, the former administrator of the Office of Manufactured Housing Programs (OMHP),
  • how the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) failed to ask HUD leadership to have Danner removed for numerous concerns over her allegedly problematic actions.    
  • MHI failed to act with respect to Danner, despite a widespread outcry against Danner’s repeated overreaches expressed by grass roots retailers, communities, producers, state associations, MHARR, and others. 
  • The overreaches were bad enough that HUD Secretary Ben Carson called them “ridiculous” in Senate testimony.

 

GuruFocus, Clayton’s Unethical Moats?

Days ago, “GuruFocus contributor John Engle asked the questionAre Warren Buffett’s Strategic ‘Moats’ Unethical?

 This isn’t the first time Buffett’s love of moats has been attacked,” per GuruFocus. “Berkshire Hathaway has been criticized for its business practices, which seemed to put profit over customers, particularly at its Clayton Homes division.”

It is worth noting that GuruFocus’  Rupert Hargreaves used the proper industry terminology – “manufactured home” – while Seattle Times still uses the incorrect term, “mobile home.”

SteveDukeLMHATheTerminologyMattersBecausetheTerminologyDefinesTheConstructionStandardsDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsMHLivingNews1

For facts on accurate, proper factory-built home industry terminology, click here or above.

Clayton Homes, for example, the largest builder of modular and manufactured homes in the United States, has been accused of relying onpredatory sales practices, exorbitant fees and interest rates that can exceed 15 percent, trapping many buyers in loans they can’t afford and in homes that are almost impossible to sell or refinance.” Evidently, if the company were looking to expand its moat naturally,” said Hargreaves for GuruFocus,it would be trying to achieve the best reputation and results for customers rather than price gouging — a tactic only the largest [m]onopoly businesses tend to get away with.”

The Nation and others have also raised concerns about Clayton Homes, and their Buffett-led Berkshire Hathaway lending units. 

 

Evidence of Monopoly?

To date, only MHProNews – thanks to a news tip from a reader – published 2 documents from 21st Mortgage Corp related to allegations of overtly monopolistic practices.

According to what attorneys have said to MHProNews who examined those 21st mortgage documents – and when compared to the facts in Buffett’s Berkshire annual letter that same year, along with the related videos – have led them to say that there is good evidence of monopolistic practices.

Is it just a question of time before word leaks out of anti-trust investigations of Buffett’s Berkshire manufactured housing industry brands? Will that include reported concerns over the trade association they dominate, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) too?

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

One pundit used the phrase, “Promises Made, Promises Kept.”

The Dow soared 300 points today, after news this weekend that Chinese and American sources both stated that they have come to a tentative agreement on a broad range of trade related issues.

The mutually threatened tariffs, at least for now, are on hold.

Fox Business said, “The United States and China agreed to take steps to significantly reduce the $370 billion trade deficit between the two economic powerhouses by having Beijing purchase more goods, according to a joint statement released by the two nations on Saturday.”

There was a consensus on taking effective measures to substantially reduce the United States trade deficit in goods with China,” per the joint statement. “To meet the growing consumption needs of the Chinese people and the need for high-quality economic development, China will significantly increase purchases of United States goods and services.”

Both sides agreed to encourage two-way investment and to strive to create a fair, level playing field for competition,” the statement read.

 

According to the White House, the U.S. will increase its agriculture and energy exports to China and will end a team of negotiators to Beijing to work out the details, in a statement emailed to MHProNews.

The details of how much deficit reduction will be have not yet been revealed.

As some observers noted, this isn’t going to be a case of the Chinese regime taking out a purchase order, but rather of genuine systemic changes which could lead to the growth of U.S. exports.  Given that change, that would be good for American farming, energy, manufacturing, technology, and other interests.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Home Depot Co-Founder Ken Langone is promoting his new book, “I Love Capitalism!” as a way of educating and inspiring those Americans who have been seduced by the false promises of socialism.

In a video with Fox Business, Lagone speaks candidly about his faith, family and fortune.  He does so with the aim of encouraging others to believe that they too can succeed in America.

It is no secret to long-time readers that MHProNews is likewise for faith, family, flag and fortune. That means editorially we are:

  • pro-free enterprise,
  • for protecting our God-given, constitutionally protected rights,
  • for limited government that taxes the least, and protects the rights of all,
  • believes in common-sense steps that lawfully protects consumers,
  • believe in protections for small businesses and workers in ways that avoid crony capitalism and monopolistic power.

Lagone’s new book title topic was a good bookend to recent reports on this issue.  With a growing number of millennials and others who haven’t been properly informed on the benefits of free enterprise vs. the tragic outcomes of socialism, the video above and the links below will prove useful.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

 

 

From Business Insider the following pull-quotes on topics that the Daily Business News has been covering for over a year.

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak spoke to Business Insider at the WeAreDevelopers World Congress in Vienna, Austria.

  • Wozniak said he was “bothered by what technology has become.
  • He hinted that the breakup of big tech monopolies may be necessary or useful.
  • Wozniak: “All big companies lie to make money on some level. They withhold secrets — it’s not news. I don’t look at it and say to myself: “This is a big thing,” he told Business Insider.
  • Steve Wozniak: In a company like Apple that made computers easy to use, I always thought that the user was more important than the technology. We put a lot of effort into letting people live their lives in a normal, human way.”
  • Steve Wozniak: “But that “human way” is changing. We used to be able to have conversations in secret with people. If I were to say something to you in private now, others wouldn’t hear it — that isn’t the case anymore. We lost our security a long time ago. We’ve lost our privacy and it’s been abused.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Manufacturing in general, and production and new building centers in manufactured housing in specific has been making news. The growth of all manufacturing jobs is good for the sellers of manufactured housing, as quarterly statements from publicly trade manufactured housing producers often reflect.
The latest data, per a release from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), makes it clear that factories are expanding, investing, hiring more, and paying more.

U.S. manufacturers are hiring more workers, boosting wages and increasing domestic investments following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” per Fox Business.

According to a survey by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) “Seventy-two percent of manufacturers are ramping up workers’ wages and benefits, according to a new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Meanwhile, 77% of survey respondents said they were hiring more workers, while 86% are investing more in plants and equipment.”

Numerous reports of new production centers, and increased production among manufactured housing producers underscores those facts.  See an example of linked reports, above the Jay Timmons photo, below

Manufacturing in America is now rising to new heights, thanks to tax reform, and as a result, manufacturers of all sizes are already investing more, growing more, hiring more and paying more. They are already improving lives and livelihoods,” NAM Board Chair David Farr said in a statement.

Optimism is rising.  “More than 93% of manufacturers have a positive outlook on their company’s prospects in the U.S. economy – the second-highest level ever recorded by the National Association of Manufacturers –  its most recent quarterly survey revealed,” said Fox Business.

  • Wage growth among those manufacturers surveyed last month also rose at the fastest pace in 17 years, despite remaining sluggish in the broader U.S. economy.
  • Manufacturers expected full-time employment to increase by 2.9% on average over the next year, an all-time high by the survey’s standards.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

A new tax approved by the Seattle City Council late Monday will have a negative impact on businesses in the area, experts say, which could mean a reduction in both hiring and wages,” reports Fox Business.

The private sector will respond in a negative way to the new head tax, in this case with less hiring and modestly reduced wages,” said Chris Edwards, director of tax policy studies at the Cato Institute.

As the Daily Business News previously reported, the controversial tax has split unions and others in the “progressive” city.  Part of the oddity of this scenario is that no one – including the supporters of the new tax plan – claim that this levy will actually solve the growing problems of homelessness or the shortage of affordable housing.

Two of the city’s biggest employers – e-commerce giant Amazon and coffee retailer Starbucks – have come out in opposition to the measure.

The [Seattle] tax comes out to 14 cents per employee per hour, or $275 per employee, per year, on for-profit companies that net at least $20 million annually,” said Fox Business. “It was unanimously approved by the city council’s board members.”

The story also highlights the negative impact of tax hikes, and by implication, the positive impact of tax cuts.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The numbers below are from MarketWatch, but the same data can be found from a variety of sources.

What’s going to be surprising-to-some is that the tax cuts that boosted federal revenues for Presidents Jack Kennedy (D) and Ronald Reagan (R), has provided another early reward to the Trump Administration too.

A federal surplus for the month. 

Here are the facts.

 

The Numbers:

The U.S. took in $510 billion in receipts in April and spent $296 billion, leaving the Treasury with a record monthly surplus of $214 billion. The prior record, set in April 2001, was about $190 billion,” per MarketWatch.

 

What Happened:

Tax receipts poured in during April, when tax returns and certain taxpayers’ quarterly estimated payments are due. Individual receipts climbed by $66 billion over last April, something the Congressional Budget Office has attributed to stronger-than-expected income growth in 2017, as well as “larger-than-anticipated payments for economic activity in 2018.”

That surplus occurred even though spending rose in April.  It rose 8%, due to higher payments on Social Security and interest on the public debt.

The projections are still for a deficit this year.  But the norms of history suggest that continued economic growth will in time reduce that budget gap. With a combination of rising federal receipts, adding some fiscal discipline, and other plans advocated by the Trump Administration for economic growth continue to take hold, the outlook is hopeful.

Of course, any number of factors could provide wrinkles to the plan and time line. But the fact that receipts are up over last year, after a big tax cut should be a wakeup call for all of those who failed to understand the historic lessons being applied by the Trump tax cut team.

It goes without saying that a healthy economy is good for the nation, and the manufactured housing industry. The Daily Business News will continue to monitor this topic.

HyperloopEconomist

Elon Musk’s LA tunnel for the hyperloop is almost finished, reports CNN Money and others in media.

It represents Musk’s plan to beat Los Angeles traffic.

Musk, is known for Tesla, Space X and is the founder of the Boring Company.  He announced late Thursday the tunneling startup has nearly finished building its first stretch of a Los Angeles tunnel.

The tunnel will be a key component of its loop transport system, which will move people in their own cars or passenger “pods” for bicyclists and pedestrians. The high-speed system will allow people to bypass LA traffic, and thus get around the city faster.

But it is also a possible vision into how commuters from outside a metro could move more quickly into a city to do their work.  That would allow workers to buy homes – including manufactured homes – further out, where land and other costs would be lower.

Musk stated that the public will be offered free rides on his Loop service in the upcoming months, once the Boring company receives regulatory approval.

 

The company has sought a permit for a 2.7-mile tunnel in busy West Los Angeles, but its overall vision includes a 60-mile tunnel network that would be one of the largest subway networks in the United States.

Musk said pedestrians and cyclists will receive priority access to the tunnels, and that access will cost less than a bus ticket.

Two videos give you more insights, the first is pithy, the second is more in depth and gives added background to hyperloop.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

CNN Money’s mostly right on this report, per other sources, and there is enough correct where the report is worth sharing.  The issue is CNN making the claim overly broad, about rural areas losing population.  Some areas are, others are not.

For example, Pew Research said about a year ago that there is a move toward more rural areas, so there is at least a dispute on that issue.

That some communities are losing population is not in dispute.

What is certain is that there are rural towns and counties that pay you to move there, or give other incentives. This might be useful information to marketers of manufactured and modular homes.

According to Brookings, the “US population disperses to suburbs, exurbs, rural areas, and “middle of the country” metros, per William H. Frey on Monday, March 26, 2018.”

So CNN could be wrong overall on the move away from rural areas, but that these towns, counties or even a state are giving people incentives, that’s a fact at this time.
