Some of those billionaires have direct or indirect impact on the manufactured housing industry, as well as others.

Our teasers and data points are more industry-specific.

There are several pending reports that cover deals, notable companies and industry personalities, and more pending. These include research and investigations that are not occurring in mainstream media about manufactured housing.

There continues to be some operations that make outlandish claims about being the biggest or best read, etc. It is arguably pure BS or a bald-faced lie. Let’s give some quick examples of that reality, by using Google.

Yesterday, on 9.16.2020 – near midnight, MHProNews published the report linked below.

Greenfield Manufactured Home Communities, per Donald C. Westphal, plus Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

It cites information from two other trade media, one of which claims to be the premier source in manufactured housing industry news. If so, then why is it that in the Google search below they don’t even appear in the top results, even though they published their report days ago? If they are premier, why is it that MHProNews’ result in less than a day dwarfs theirs?




Bear in mind that MHProNews documented that they and other hyperbole prone bloggers have been fact-checked, using their own data. After being repeatedly embarrassed, MHInsider stopped publishing their viewer/reader data, but continue their purported lie about readership and being ‘premier.’ Indeed, they arguably get more attention due to these fact checks than they do to their own published pro-MHI fluff.

Two other examples of published reports ranking via Google search results are shown below.




This trade site has published over 20,000 articles and reports since we launched in mid-October 2020. Based on the known data, see links above, some of our articles that were published months or years ago are still getting more readers than some of their reports that are fresh and ‘new.’

If they are deceptive about something like readership and engagement levels, what else will the be deceptive about?

With that brief tee up, let’s turn to a simple featured focus for tonight. As usual, that segment of our business nightly report is found in after 2 of the 3 market snapshots, the quotable quotes, left-right headline summary, and MHProNews.
