dl217. Yes indeed, HCN is effected through the operators. Insurance providers including the government programs dictate weather the providers are profitable or not. That in turn limits the amount they can pay in lease payments. Fortunatly we have a sound management team and for the most part honest and established lease holders. At least that is my opinon. We may go up and down as the market reacts, but by and large I hold this stock for the dividend and I don't see that changeing for the forseeable future.
