What Just Happened, to Cavco, Independent Communities, Retailers, and Manufactured Housing?

November 25th, 2018

 WhatJustHappenedCavcoIndustriesIndependnetMHCommunitiesRetailersandManufacturedHousingSundayMorningRecapMHProNews

Every Sunday morning for several years, we provide this popular week in review.

 

It helps answer the question, ‘What Just Happened?’ It will also suggest a few answers to a question that hasn’t been asked, what’s coming up in this week ahead?

Drama.

Some of it is ‘manufactured drama.’

Some of it was arguably avoidable drama, as in the case of Cavco Industries, whose stock has tumbled over an SEC subpoena over trading by Joe Stegmayer, MHI’s Chairman and now ex-Chairman and CEO at CVCO.

On the plus side, there are more details linked about the Legacy Housing (LEGH) IPO below.

If you were out of town, you might have missed the MH Whistleblower…its both fun and serious.

Then there’s local drama, like the story about a manufactured home community owner who’s property is threatened with closure, but who is fighting back. That story includes local news video, and numerous exclusive comments from the targeted owner, and is linked below.

There’s a new move called NobleHomes, and #NobleNotMobile.  That report is likewise linked below.

Then there’s the MHIdea, a blast at MHI from veteran manufactured housing independents in the retail sector.  They’ve publicly said in their own words, enough of the failed leadership and monopolistic games by the big boys and their Arlington-based trade association. That interesting – historic – move and report are among those listed further below.

There are things to be thankful for, and in the spirit of the season, there’s a nice nugget we’ve published about MHI in a thanksgiving story found below.

There are good things shared from and about MHARR too.

Then there’s a report yesterday that will have thousands saying, ‘what’s that all about?‘ Facts are facts. One reader was laughing when he called, but another was ‘you’ve got to be kidding,’  No joke, the facts are what they are.  And that report spotlighted facts, the money trail, and evidence that Omaha and Knoxville may have a hard time explaining away.

Stunning.

Then there’s a new Masthead on truth detection 101. If you want to learn how to spot a lie or a con job, it’s insightful, practical – and even inspirational – reading.

Among the vexing topics reported below is one about homelessness, because it is arguably being fostered by flawed policies.  Our industry could be part of what fixes that problem.  When the needs are so great, and one solution is obvious, why are manufactured homes bucking so many headwinds?

What just happened?

Discover it all for yourself.  It’s awaiting your gaze and professional curiosity. The headlines of the week from Sunday 11.18.2015 until 11.25.2018 are  all found below in the broadest, deepest, most read, trade media in all of manufactured housing.

A special word of acknowledgement to the Dick Jennison, from MHI, and Timothy W. Williams, of 21st Mortgage Corp.  Yes, that’s code, but they should get it, and so will numerous others who are thoughtful readers of this report and what follows below.
