Hope you are correct although I'm sitting waiting for one of the big guys to buy HTA which In the meantime it's nice to collect the divvy. When HTA is bought if the past holds true only expect a 15 to 20% premimum so the higher the stock price the higher the overall profit. What we don't want is for some bad news for HTA and have a stock decline and then be bought at a lower price etc.
MOB's are the new rage in the industry and are being bought by the big players ( HCN, VTR etc.)They provide triple lease benefits without the envolvement of many government controls.
I've owned this for many years-easy money but the divvy rate has been declining every couple of months. Not a major concern yet because of the high rate but something to be aware of.
I am amazed at all of the investors here who moan or groan about special dividend,stock price,dividend etc. If you check out historical prices you will see slow but steady growth in the past few years with a constant rich dividend. Not sure what else you expect from management! They are doing a good job and are recognized in the industry as being a soild, strong team. If you bought this stock in the last couple of years I would think the reasons why you made your purchase have not really changed-growth and solid dividend--not a bad combination.
Nothing really wrong with SNH except it has remained in the $20-$24 dollar range for a few years while also keeping the same dividend during this time period.
I assume you bought close to the 52 week high then watched a 10% drop-it happens. I think I can speak for a good amount of investors here that realize that OHI is a great stock that has moved up very nicely but at times it will get hurt with talk about Fed rates. Nothing you can do about it-has nothing to do with short term strength of the company. Sit back and relax as many of us have done as we watch the dividend increase for something like 10 straight quarters to over 5%. You must realize that your timing of the purchase was not good-- stick around and eventually their will be a smile on your face as the stock value increases and your pockets are full with dividend money.
First of all-anybody that bought this stock should be aware that the Fed rate is a factor on this stock's price both positive and negative.Secondly I can't imagine anybody buying this turtle moving stock for capital appreciation-yes it has moved up before this recent drop but this is not a true growth stock. The majority are here because of the dividend- plus or minus stock movement is not a big deal provided the divvy remains solid. As ENG as mentioned --Keep cashing the checks.
I have to agree with CAP --- I think a buyout will happen this year especially if there is still acess to cheap money--I think it will be one of the major players such as OHI.VTR or HCN. The good part is the jump in price of HTA since a buyout will only provide a 15 to 20% gain over base price.
