CNNmoney8.28.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsDon’t look now, but a subject that MHProNews has been spotlighting for years has now drawn President Donald J. Trump’s attention. There are many things this could mean, which will be part of our market focus for 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.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


There’s a significant level of misunderstanding and misinformation on the topic of the tech giants and free speech.

The left tends to talk about things like ‘hate speech’ by white supremacists and white nationalists.  Yet, if the protests last year and this year organized by white supremacists is any indication, there are very few of them, less than 2 dozen came to a ‘national’ protest. The left may also talk about “net neutrality,” which sounds good, but was an Obama era terminology that didn’t mean what it seemed to imply – think ‘affordable care act.’

By contrast, what the right tends to be concerned with is rigging algorithms in a way that skews search results, tilting news searches away from conservative sources more toward left-wing sources.

With that brief background, President Trump weighed in today on the tech giants and concerns over rigged searches. Per CNBC:

  • Trump said in a tweet that Google’s search engine had “rigged” news story search results to show mostly “bad” stories about him and other conservatives. He later criticized Facebook and Twitter.
  • He says Google is prioritizing left-leaning outlets and warns that the situation “will be addressed.”


  • The president’s comments come a week before Google, Facebook and Twitter testify before Congress.
  • Larry Kudlow, Trump’s economic advisor, says the White House is “looking into” whether Google suppresses positive articles about the president.

The following tweets are of interest to those who are concerned with the problem of monopoly in general, or the tech giants in particular.


The Daily Business News on MHProNews has periodically reporting for some time about NY Stern Professor Scott Galloway, and his push to break up the tech monopolies.

Similar reasoning Galloway uses for tech could easily apply to Berkshire Hathaway, and others.

There are a growing number of voices across the left-right divide that are weighing in on the harmful impact of giant companies that make it very difficult for smaller companies to emerge.
