Combining the manufactured housing (MH) and recreational vehicle (RV) industries together, ranks the combination 19th out of 197 industry groups that Investors Business Daily (IBD) tracks. The group has seven members but only three are significant, MHProNews has learned. Manufactured housing’s sister business Thor Industries (THO) ranks number one, followed by Winnebago Industries (WGO) in the second spot, and Drew Industries (DW) fills out the third position due to its strong earnings growth over the last three years. Through its subsidiaries, Lippert Components, Inc. and Kinro, Inc., Drew supplies components to the MH and RV industries. Drew closed up in today’s trading, +0.32% to end the session at 43.84.
