No chatter on this stock if it moves up or down-good earnings or not. Other Healthcare REITS messege boards are much more active--not saying that a lack of activity is bad but I would think with the number of investors in this stock that there would be a comment every now or then. I guess constant dividends can put an investor to sleep!
The company offers either debt or stock to investors so that the company can buy properties & charge rent. At any particular point in time there is an optimal capital mix that may favor debt or equity. In either case, a public company files an offering with the SEC so the terms are all known prior to the company's actions.
I bought this stock when it was $36 after my broker said to avoid it. So, after several years have passed, I just look at the appreciation and collect the dividends. They have never had a lot of action on this board, but what do you want to talk about?
I bought this years ago after doing some research when my sister asked for recommendations for a divy paying stock. At the time people hated it, but including both cap appreciation & the divy, I'm sitting on a 660% return.
Topics-I'm wondering how and why we bought senior housing in England? Almost seems like a tax deal similar to Pfizer and Astra Zeneca?
With 87% of revenue coming from private pay I wonder why we respond like all the other REITS to interesr rates or government regulations?
With cash on hand I think we are in the mood to buy-my guess is in the direction of medical office buildings--namely HTA
Some of you out there might have some insight or an opinion to share with this board on the above topics
For some strange reason, all of the posts that were here are gone - not sure if that has had some impact. In any event, HCN is 83% institutionally owned so perhaps fewer retail posters available to comment.
