Does PMI cover investment properties?

I've read multiple things online, wondering if PMI covers investment properties? Or do I need to put at least 20% down?

I am not aware of any PMI companies insuring loans for investment properties.  20% down would be required on investment properties normally.  If you are purchasing a homepath which qualifies for a homepath mortgage, you can purchase at up to 90% with no pmi though.

It is unlikely that less than 20% down payment would be possible on an investment property purchase, which would negate PMI requirement though.
