Regarding your previous question about AHE which is merging with HCP, a Sunday moring talk radio CFP recommend AHE as a buy today. I did some digging since I couldn't talk with any of my contacts (their at the lake!}. Sorry if you have seen this already, but take a look at http://biz.yahoo.com/rf/990805/4r.html
I still feel positive about the healthcare reit sector, as long as Medicare pricing structure does not continue to get extremely complicated. I read the regs under which these facilities must operate. Man, what happened to "the end of Big government is over?" IMO, AHE is a watch for now.
