    OT: Stock Contest - Week 12

    MCZ is moving up and just feels like it is not going to stop. I do have a decent position but, I wish I had been able to buy more. I don't know how many limit orders I missed by as little as 0.0001 or got partial fills. If you MCZ folks don't want me to play in your sandbox just say so. How rude :)

    Sorry, I think I missed the reply button and gave you a thumbs down. In any case, you are welcome. Unfortunately, mechanical screens give a lot of trash to pick through and miss others since the numbers may contain one time events or don't tell the whole story. Let us know if you find any that are somewhat interesting. Sorry for the parts and pieces but I tried posting may times and finally got it through in sections.

    Well, we will see if the list sticks this time. I took out companies that I knew were chinese and below $0.05/shr. I don't know if any are of interest or if it is worth slogging through the list. I can add criteria if desired.

    "Anybody think the last CC warranted continued selling?"

    On the contrary, at these prices it warrants purchasing which I have been doing.

    Wow, 8 bucks a share. Something major would have to take place for that to happen. Nice buy. I think the company has transformed itself somewhat by getting out of the investment fund totally by sometime in 2016.

    I kind of like some volatility. Some swings makes it easier to buy low and sell high if you have an opinion on fair value. There was really some strange stuff going on though on the crazy days. You seem to really understand stocks and markets and effectively ride out some of the ups and downs.

    I figured I have to buy at least some while prices are down so I got a little bit more at 23.61. Underwater already :)

    I have heard just before this hit the fan that if the feds don't raise rates that it will be a signal that the economy is weaker than originally thought. With the recent events though, I don't think this logic may apply.

    The bright side is that it did not do too badly in this dismal week for the indexes. Also, it isn't that long until the end of the month. I am guessing that there will be some info available them.

    I made the one small buy in at 26.52 but have not had the gonads yet to buy more. It is probably a very good buy right now if you don't mind holding for a bit and weathering some volatility.

    Nice summary. Yes, the cash flow and willingness of management to reward shareholders with dividends is why I am in. I agree in that it is not a major growth story unless they keep cash for some acquisitions.

  • bottomsupinvestor by bottomsupinvestor Aug 21, 2015 6:54 PM Flag

    Hieronymous is still in the lead and there are two of us just barely in positive territory. The group average did not change much even with the dismal week for the averages. MCZ is holding its own which is helping our average.

    Only two more weeks to go.

    Recent moves have improved the outlook of the company according to Moody's as follows:

    New York, August 19, 2015 -- Moody's Investors Service revised the outlook of CareTrust REIT, Inc. to positive from stable. In addition, Moody's affirmed the B2 corporate family rating and B2 senior unsecured rating.

    RATINGS RATIONALE

    This rating action follows the announcement that CareTrust is under contract to purchase a portfolio of 14 skilled nursing and senior housing assets in Ohio for $175 million from Liberty Nursing Centers. This transaction, along with other accretive acquisitions executed over the past 12 months, is expected to meaningfully reduce the REIT's tenant concentration with Ensign to below 70% of revenues, a distinct credit positive. In addition, because all acquisitions to date have been primarily funded with cash or equity, the company's key credit metrics are expected to improve materially. Leverage, as defined by Net Debt/EBITDA, is expected to decline to below 6.0x from 6.6x at 2Q15, while Fixed Charge Coverage is expected to increase to above 2.5x from 2.3x at 2Q15.

    CareTrust has grown significantly in the past year, and we anticipate that the company will continue to actively pursue acquisitions. The company recently refinanced its existing secured revolving credit facility with a new $300 million unsecured revolving credit facility, which matures in August 2019 with two six-month extension options and an accordion feature allowing for an additional $200 million of capacity. This new facility unencumbered a significant portion of the portfolio and should provide the company with more financial flexibility to seek out new investment opportunities and continue to grow. Moody's expects that all future acquisitions will be funded with a conservative mix of debt and equity.

    Thank you for the welcome. I have been lurking around for a little while but don't have much to add with most of the knowledgeable long timers here on the board. I did see this on a news feed today. Probably old news.
