I've watched both of these cos for a while. MT is meditrust. It also has lots of healthcare facilities and lots of debt. The stock had crashed to about $2 and then MT begain major asset sales. It just announced it had sold 976 mill worth and only took $244 mill in losses. IT too has bv of about $14 per share. Its now at 3 3/8.
ETT has a debt to equity ratio of about 1 so its not too out of line.
The diff between ETT and MT may be the value of the assets - especially in light of the poster who quoted Merril Lynch ( baron26).
I just purchased a few more MT and was about to buy a bit of ETT- but that post scared me away for now.
