Right Winger and Socialist Agree on Amazon & Bezos’ Deal, Plus MH Market Update

CNNmoney11.14.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsIt seems that the left and right don’t agree on a lot these days, so the fact that Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-declared socialist, and Fox News host Tucker Carlson agree on Amazon’s new deal alone ought to be newsworthy. A look at what Amazon – which recently had an affiliate enter the factory-built housing business via an investment – and what’s behind their HQ deal is eye opening.  It will be our featured report this evening.

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a very good point” about Amazon getting large tax breaks after the company announced it would build half of its newest HQ site in the New York City borough of Queens.



But the second HQ across the Potomac from Washington, D.C. gets more of the attention in this analysis by Fox’s Carlson and Professor Brian Benberg, of King’s College.  The discussion points out that Amazon’s Bezos putting half of the HQ near Congress puts “20,000 boots on the ground” to lobby, as well as the millions they already spend for lobbyists.
