    • if you want a yes proxy for 37 million shares(giving you change of ownership)..your gonna have to pay up... $8.25 would be the minimum... a lower price would be rejected by there no point..

    • If you focused on what this story said, the winners will be those corporations that survive will be the most efficient, not the most cut-throat. FVE is cutting corners and trying to jack up profit margins but they have a cash flow problem which will not be improved by cutting services to residents. Has anyone looked at the increase in vacancies at FVE mis-managed properties? Future cash flow efficiencies will result in a need to sell property and shrink in size. This is a garbage company headed to BK!

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Whose support on this board do I not have...? Thats the question teddy?

      The five star investors coperative wants to hear from you.

    • The health care industry is poised to take advantage of increasing opportunities to grow, according to panelists at a Nov. 13 session during REITWorld 2012: NAREIT’s Annual Convention at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego.

      Ross Nussbaum, managing director with UBS, moderated the session. Panelists included Debra Cafaro, chairman, president and CEO of Ventas Inc. (NYSE: VTR); George Chapman, chairman, president and CEO of Health Care REIT Inc. (NYSE: HCN); and James Flaherty, chairman and CEO of HCP Inc. (NYSE: HCP). They agreed that mergers and acquisitions within the health care industry will continue due to the need for low-cost, efficient health care solutions combined with an aging baby boomer demographic.

      “Real estate and REITs are in a sweet spot generally and are able to do win-win transactions for sellers, but I think our opportunities are greater in health care. Assets will flow to the most efficient owners,” said Cafaro, adding that prospects for both internal and external growth are significant.
      Chapman said the opportunities to grow his company’s portfolio have been unprecedented. With the health care industry’s overall need to improve, he pointed out that there will be a lot of operators that have to consolidate.

      “That kind of pressure is going to drive continued change, enhance quality and grow consolidation,” he said. “It’s a great confluence of factors coming together.”

      The health care industry is in the “third inning of nine-inning baseball game” in terms of growth, according to Flaherty. Market pressure for more efficient health care will create more mergers and acquisition transactions that he said should benefit health care REITs.

    • this is no farmers Co-Op... our main focus will be to maximize shareholder value which ever way we quick as we can... Obviously offers will probably be sent directly to shareholders... SNH may be forced into action.
